After slight fog bound delays at London Heathrow we arrived in San Pedro CA for our pre cruise hotel stay.Must state that the Hotel was only average and we could not get any food after 22.00hrs. Next day embarkation was a delight , less than one hour after leaving the hotel we were in our cabin,8046 which was a CC class.Initially the cabin smelt of stale smoke,after pointing this out to our steward it took them 7 days to rectify the problem after deep cleaning and changing air con filters.The cabin was spacious with plenty of space for a two week cruise.The bathroom was warm in fell and spacious. Everyday small bites were delivered and a bottle of champagne was in the cabin on our arrival. We left San Pedro on time then had three cold days before we were blessed with warm sunshine.On our return it was similar weather with the last day being very rough with 60/70 mph gusts,the Summit was a stable ship and rode the 20 feet swells very well. At this point I must say that the Celebrity standards have gone into freefall since our Mercury cruise in 2000,we were appalled at the way some fellow passengers were allowed to conduct themselves with no consideration for other passengers and no correction from the Officers or crew.About 200 of the 2250 onboard did not adhere to the dress codes and were loud loutish and drunk for the majority of the time, I witnessed substance abuse and when mentioned to the staff they were too afraid to do anything about it !!!!. The food in the main dinning room was bland and had very little taste,most of the time served at luke warm temperatures,the food in the buffet was similar.I do not know how Michael Roux can put his name to this kind of food,if he delivered this in any of eateries he would be out of business. I will be writing to Mr Roux to advise him of the situation on the Summit.Anyway the Normandie restaurant,the food was great although they still let people dine there with lumberjack shirts on,being very loud and slapping " High Fives " over dinner. The decor on the ship was very pleasant with plenty of space although the ship could have been much much cleaner.I think the fall in standards is since the line was taken over by R.C.C.I. Until we can be assured that the standards are vastly improved we will not be taking another Celebrity cruise. We will be now taking our main line cruises on H.A.L. and P & O. Read Less
