I needed to get out of town for a couple of days and this cruise was the perfect opportunity to enjoy a couple of nights of spoiled adventure. I chose the Royal Suite, however, I was upgraded to the Penthouse suite the night before the cruise. Amazing! The room was absolutely everything I could hope for. Lots of space and room to relax, the balcony was 1000 square feet with a bath tub. We docked in Nassau, however, we stayed on the ship and ordered room service and enjoyed the automatic player on the piano. The scenery and atmosphere of the room was absolutely perfect. The cabins steward and the butler were right on top of things and they really treated us special. The shoreside team had all our goodies waiting for us when we arrived. The butler came and got us from Michaels club when our room was ready, a very nice touch! The ship was clean and well laid out. There wasn't a lot of time to do everything, but, the stand up comedy was funny, the casino was busy and the music was excellent. Tuscan Grille was one of the best dinners of my life, the steak was amazing! Qsuine was pretty good, but I wish I would have went to Luminae instead. Luminae for breakfast was simply stunning.

This is a review more so of Entertainment Cruise Productions who chartered Celebrity Summit for a jazz cruise out of Ft Lauderdale. It was the inaugural sailing of Blue Note At Sea - a famed jazz recording label responsible for launching jazz legends such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Van Morrison, Nora Jones and so many more. The line up on the cruise was the elite of contemporary jazz artists including no less than 10 Grammy Award winners and a boatload of the genre's finest. IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. WOW!! ...Not quite household names, but music that moves the soul and many of the artists you'll find in the credits of Oscar winning movies, Broadway shows and A-List collaborators. Not your standard on board entertainment - which is the major drawcard for those who don't generally subscribe to cruising. This was Jazz Concentrate... a festival of soul, funk, jazz and beyond. All-you-can-take music of the highest order. Entertainment Cruise Productions headed up by jazz enthusiast Michael Lazaroff are the indisputable specialists in packaging jazz at sea, and this sailing was nothing short of exceptional. Ports of call were ok - Nassau, San Juan, Samana, Labadee... however I am guilty of staying on the ship to catch more music well into the small hours of the night. Artists such as Marcus Miller, Gregory Porter, Terence Blanchard, Robert Glasper, Dianne Reeves Chucho Valdes, David Sanborn, Joshua Redman, The Bad Plus, Lalah Hathaway, Grace Kelly, Natalie Williams and so many more rocked the boat - and 3000 music loving passengers! I'm still buzzing! If you're a serious music lover, and like the idea of cruising the Bahamas on board a luxury vessel with like-minded travellers, then book Blue Note At Sea 2018. Entertainment Cruise Productions also produce The Smooth Jazz Cruise and The Jazz Cruise. I've spoken to many passengers who were on board both of the 2017 sailings, and were equally wowed by the entertainment and calibre of talent. The cost of putting an A-List line up to sea, coupled with increased production and specialised enrichment events is huge, so for the value, you have to forgive a few lackings with the ship itself. The great thing about Celebrity Summit is its 5 amazing venues for the music. The food is good, the staff and service, good... the cabins... good enough. But you're there for the music and the music will keep you on a high until you book your next fix - 3 incredible jazz cruises for Jan - Feb 2018. Blue Note At Sea was the most life-affirming musical experience. If you decide to give yourself the greatest gift and book, you'll come home with a suitcase full of incredible memories and a long list of new friends for future travel. I have nothing to do with this company - I am just a very enthusiastic jazz fan, (with tears welling in many of the performances from the sheer joy of such sublime music). This cruise delivered the experience of a lifetime. Blue Note At Sea was PHENOMENAL. Read Less

Choose this cruise because it fit into our time schedule. Enjoyed the ship very much , we like smaller ships and we wanted to go to Key West one more time. Our cabin was very nice, we had an upgrade to Aqua class, the room was about the same size as we always get, except they bring some snacks everyday, and give you a bottle of wine when you get there. We were assigned to the Blu restaurant, but ate at the main dining room because we enjoy sitting with other people and hearing of there experience they had that day. We went for the open dining seating and had no problem getting a seat. Buffet was always stocked, never a shortage of food. Also the poolside grill was open for hours, and then there was another spot that was cooking up steaks, chops, and fish to order in the rear of the ship. Also excellent eating. Entertainment and activities kept us busy when we did not leave the ship. And nightly entertainment was also excellent, performers really work hard to please you. The service we had was great. Whether it be at our room, dining room, bars, theater. Bars were busy but there was not a long wait to get a drink. All in all we had a great time and will probably take this ship again. If not it will be another Celebrity cruise somewhere. Something for everyone no matter what age group you were in always something to do or just do nothing. Must say our stateroom attendant Erwin, was top notch. Room always made by 9 AM, and turned down when we got back at night. Always a smile, hello, can I get you anything, just great to work with him.
