82% of cruisers loved it
  • Pros: Smaller size means consistent service; heavy emphasis on food and wine, with mostly good results
  • Cons: Despite refurbs and Solstice-class additions, ship is over a decade old -- and in some places, shows it.
  • Bottom line: The ship presents some of the best features of Celebrity, without being too overwhelming.

Celebrity Summit has 1,119 cabins, with more than 80 percent facing outside. Twenty-six are wheelchair accessible across all classes, including suites.

All cabins are decorated in shades of brown, taupe and orange, with a light wood trim. All have two twin beds that can be configured into a queen, two closets, drawers and shelves, a nightstand for each side of the bed and a vanity with chair. Baggage can be stored underneath the bed, and each room has European and American outlets.

In-room entertainment consists of a flat-screen TV with a limited number of channels, including CNN, BBC and FOX News, as well as a few pay-per-view movies. You can also check your stateroom balance, watch lectures and other events and order room service through your TV.

Bathrooms have tile floors, ceramic countertops and sinks, and a limited amount of storage space. The fabric shower curtain clings on occasion. Included bath amenities for most rooms are Celebrity-branded bar soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion.

Interior: Inside cabins are 170 square feet and are located on Decks 2, 3, 7, 8, 9 and 11.

Oceanview/Porthole: Oceanview cabins are the same size, and are located on Decks 2 and 6 through 9; a large porthole allows plenty of light inside.

Balcony: Veranda cabins range from the standard 170 square feet to 191 square feet and are located on Decks 6 through 9. The balconies measure 38 to 54 square feet and are large enough for two chairs and a small table.

As an M-class ship, Summit has "Sweet 16" rooms -- eight port and eight starboard veranda cabins far forward on Deck 6 with balconies that are larger than average, but at the cheapest Category 2C prices. Ask for cabins 6016, 6018, 6020-6031, 6033 or 6035. (Although if you're prone to motion sickness, the extra space might not be worth it to you.)

Concierge Class cabins are 191 square feet and are located in prime locations on Decks 6 through 9 (almost all aft rooms are within this class). Passengers who book these cabins receive a number of added perks, including a welcome bottle of sparkling wine, pillow menu, daily fresh fruit, afternoon hors d'oeuvres, use of binoculars, Hansgrohe-brand shower heads and an expanded room service breakfast menu. Also included are priority check-in, priority embarkation and disembarkation at each port, a Celebrity Cruises tote bag and use of a golf umbrella and binoculars, as well as access to an exclusive pre-departure lounge with free coffee and juices.

At 195 square feet, AquaClass cabins are slightly larger than Concierge Class cabins and offer many of the same perks but include daily complimentary bottles of Evian, freshly brewed iced tea and a personal spa concierge who is on hand to arrange spa treatments. Passengers booked in these cabins get complimentary access to the spa-inspired Blu restaurant and the Persian Garden thermal suite, where they can use the aromatherapy saunas and steam rooms. AquaClass cabins are spread throughout the ship on Decks 9 and 11.

The most spacious balcony cabins -- those configured for families on Decks 7 through 9 -- are about 271 square feet and boast impressive 242-square-foot balconies. The family balcony cabins each feature a "master" bedroom with a privacy partition, a queen-sized bed and two convertible sofas. Balconies are furnished with two full-sized lounge chairs, a side table, two smaller lounge chairs and a small breakfast table. While they resemble suites in size, these cabins do not carry the same perks as the higher cabin categories.

Mini-Suites: The lowest category of suites is the Sky Suites, located on Decks 6, 8 and 9. The 251-square-foot cabins, which are not true suites, feature lounge chairs in the sitting areas and a DVD player, in addition to the amenities found in standard cabins.

Suites: Nearly twice as large as Sky Suites, each 467-square-foot Celebrity Suite on Decks 6 through 9 have panoramic windows, a dining room, a glass-enclosed sitting area, two entertainment centers with DVD players, a music center, a walk-in closet with vanity and a whirlpool bath tub.

The 538-square-foot Royal Suites on Deck 6 are similar to the Celebrity Suites, but they have balconies with whirlpool tubs and floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors instead of panoramic windows.

The most luxurious accommodations on Celebrity Summit are the 1,432-square-foot Penthouse Suites on Deck 6 aft. Each features a foyer, a baby grand piano, a butler's pantry, motorized draperies with lights, two interactive entertainment systems and a wet bar, in addition to the amenities present in the other suite categories. Penthouses feature a master bedroom, complete with an extra dressing room and vanity, a powder room and a marble master bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower.

Suite passengers have access to the perks offered to Concierge Class passengers, in addition to butler service, priority tender service, full in-suite meal and afternoon tea services, complimentary in-suite espresso and cappuccino, preferred seating in the main dining room and specialty restaurants, complimentary shoe-shine service, delivery of requested board games and an in-suite computer/printer (upon request in Sky Suites).

December 2014

Nice, quiet location with easy access to Blu and the buffet. Rooms fairly new so in good condition. Balcony a bit small, with no footstools like on S class. Balconies for these rear rooms vary a bit due to location. This room had the smallest of the lot.

We booked Aqua class veranda room 9076, starboard side, which was more spacious than I expected. Mirrors through out the ship but especially in state rooms were well placed making everything seem more spacious. Everything was in good repair though there was a bad smell...continue

December 2014

The cabin was a basic inside cabin and the first time we were on the Summit. We had previously cruised on the Eclipse which had much more storage space. We had to improvise to be able to store all our clothes without reverting to leaving things in our suitcases. We book...continue
