Ship Facts: Celebrity Summit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Summit Deck Plans
Bermuda At A Nice Pace
Don't think there is much of a need to talk about the ship. Since she is headed to dry dock early next year for a $70 million make-over, dents and dings really didn't matter.

That said, I continue to be amazed at the level of service on the Summit. This was my fourth week in the past two years, and I was not disappointed. Although the ship is showing age, she was nevertheless cleaned on a continuing basis. I have yet to get used to going into a public men's room in the evening and having some there cleaning.

The cast in the show room seems to have more members than on some Celebrity ships. I found the quality of the singers to be above-normal.

Having been on the Solstice class ships (4 times) it took a bit of adjustment to the older design and layout. The staff tells me that the redo will include "Solstice" type upgrades. I still like the older designs just as well as the newer. This class of ship reminds me of a nice hotel; rich looking with great service.

Now---if you are planning to go to Bermuda...READ THIS!!!! Each year, around the last week in July they have the "Cup Match." It is a cricket match between Somerset and St Georges. It is a NATIONAL HOLIDAY. So, shops are closed on Thursday and Friday.

A lot of people were upset they were not told about it by their TA. West End shops remain open, but there are not that many.

Getting around Bermuda is easy. Buy a $12 all -day ticket and it's good on the ferry's and buses around the island. Bus travel? Avoid it if you can. They tend to be crowded. The #7 runs from Hamilton to West End (and back) and goes by the beaches. Nice very but the trip takes more than an hour. Ferry takes 20 minutes!

Wednesday night there is a street fair in Hamilton starting at 6:30. If you miss it, catch it the next night at the fort by the ship.

That's all from the bridge.
