A Superb Summit Experience
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)
After reading many good reviews of Summit's recent cruises in the Caribbean, I felt comfortable knowing the service and food aboard this cruise to Bermuda would be sufficient. The Summit is showing a little bit of age, but you really need to look hard to find it. Some examples are some peeling paint around our porthole window and the antiquated televisions in the rooms. Otherwise, you could not tell the age of this ship from the brand new Nieuw Amsterdam we sailed on in October last year. The outstanding points of this cruise are the crew, the entertainment and the food in the dining room and Normandie restaurant. I am a culinary school graduate and know the difference between good and great food. The food prepared and served in this ships dinner venues were the best I have ever experienced on any cruise line. The down side was that the food prepared and served at the buffet for breakfast and lunch was lacking in creativity, selection and was often served warm at best. Although, again More
I must say the quality of the dinners served on this ship as well as the excellent wine selection made up for any shortcomings during breakfast and lunch. We did not use any room service so I cannot comment on that.
The port of call, Bermuda, was beautiful and clean. The water surrounding the island is the most pristine shades of blue and turquiose I have ever seen. the one excursion we did, a bus tour around the island was fun and informative. Shopping and food on the island was expensive. If you do not enjoy fishing, snorkeling, scuba or spending time at the beach, there is really not much to see or do there. We toured the Naval Museum at the port and did some shopping in Hamilton which was fun but nothing to write home about. The weather was a bit cool so we did not do any water related activities.
