A slice of Heaven
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
The Normandy restaurant service was also wonderful as was the food- both the presentation and quality of the food were first class. The Martini bar tender Charles made the best drinks on the ship, he was extremely friendly and remembered our names always greeting us with a smile. Elizma one of the photographers went out of her way to see that we were able to locate all of our pictures as we purchased a special picture package that was an excellent deal- for a flat rate, you get all of the pictures you take including a CD of all of the pictures- much cheaper then purchased a few individual pictures. Our cabin steward Sidney kept our cabin neat and clean- We also enjoyed the talented celebrity singers and dancers including the cruise director Damian.
The shops on the ship weren't great- not many choices in all of the stores. We typically purchase many gifts for our grandchildren, but the selection of Tee Shirts and other items wasn't great- they usual inch of gold (plate) was available, as well as the prints of art work. Perhaps the best buys were the $10 watches.
We had perfect weather and went to the beautiful beaches at all the ports except St. Kitts and Dominica. We had previously been to Dominica and did a tour and nothing else was of interest to us so we made it a ship day- In St. Kitts we went on the railroad around the Island- that tour was okay- not great.
We are currently booked (for the second time) on the Equinox, Aqua class in January. we hope that Celebrity will continue to exceed our expectations. While the Summit isn't as big as the Equinox and Solstice, and we truly enjoy the Aqua Class and the amenities of the larger newer ships- I must say that the crew on the Summit was thus far the best crew we have had on any ship we have sailed on. I recommend this ship to all who are looking for excellent service on a mid sized ship. Less
Cabin review: S29117 Sky Suite 2
While cabin 9117 is near the elevator and under the pool deck- we never had a noise problem- The cabin is large as is the bathroom. The bathroom however is handicapped accessible so it lacks a full sized tub as in other suites- but the shower is huge. The cabin is spacious. The balcony however is standard and not as large as we had expected-Read All Sky Suite 2 (S2) Reviews >>
