We were very excited to go on our first Celebrity ship. As we celebrated our Anniversary this ship is most definitely relaxing. If you're looking for a party cruise, this is not it. As we walked into the ship we were welcomed with Champagne and Mimosas which was very nice. The ship is beautiful especially the Atrium. We had an inside cabin and it was very spacious and clean. The only problem we had in the cabin was when we got to Nassau, because we were on deck 2 we smelled the fumes when the ship docked? We've stayed on lower decks before and never smelled anything like that. The food was good in the buffet area, not too many options and the buffet closed at 9 pm. I get that the pizza area stayed opened late, however the pizza that was out was very cold. I liked the fact that we had an ice cream station that you can add toppings which was nice. Our first dinner we went to the main dining room and the food was not that great and the service was very slow and we sat next to some elderly ladies that complained and argued with the staff throughout our dinner and this made it very uncomfortable so we decided not to go back on the second night. Since the buffet didn't have too many options such as the desert area we only had cupcakes with all types of different frosting. We've never seen a buffet with only Cupcakes as a dessert option so on our second night we went to the coffee shop where we had plenty of desert options and it's FREE (the Raspberry cheesecake was very good). The roof top offered even more of a relaxing setting and we got to watch movies. The comedian was very good and I'm glad that we at least had that as entertainment option. The one show that they had on the first night was just okay. The Wi-Fi is very expensive and this was a 2 night cruise. This ship is also not that great for Kids. The arcade was very small with about 5 games and we didn't see too many kids on board anyway. I wouldn't go back on the Summit but I am looking forward to out next cruise with Celebrity. Read Less

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.

our 25th anniversary! we wanted to do it right so we spent about $2,300 dollars including airfare for 5 nights in a room with a window (not a balcony) so we were expecting awesomeness. NOT! i will start with the crew and captain. they were awesome, so sweet, so genuine. other positives were the premium drink package. it is awesome!! vitamin water, red bulls, Evian water in giant bottles(although they ran out of big bottles by day 4), tons of beers and premium spirits! the clubs are beautiful but we did not have any luck with the music except for motown night. they have a "silent disco" which was weird. you wear headphones to hear the music so basically it works if you are drunk, other than that, it is stupid. there was some live music here and there and it was ok but honestly, it was "Marty & Bobbi Culp classically trained singers". (just google Will Ferrell's marty culp SNL skit) the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. the toilet never really worked and actually the entire floors toilets malfunctioned for a few hours. was pretty smelly and gross. room stewards with masks, etc. getting on and off at the ports was easy and quick. cant say that about the disembark. there is no "express" disembark. they say there is, but there is not! the entire ship gets off 2 elevators at a time! had to be out of the room at 7am. YES 7 AM! that sucked! there is very little entertainment. 2 bingo games in 5 days, one comedian and no comedy club. One show with 2 times every night consisting of singing. no costumes, no sets, nothing exceptional just plain and frankly boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! nothing you can not see at a local high school. the food! breakfast- not one item i ate was piping hot. items were cold or room temp. bread was stale and it got worse as the week went on. in contrast, the coffee which was mcdonald's hot, was so acidic, i visited the restroom 3 times in 1 hour that day. drank tea after that. lunch and dinner: hamburgers, turkey or veggie burgers by the pool or a buffet. the lunch and dinner buffet food is exactly the same every day. mediocre on day one and as the week went by, we noticed the food at the buffet tasted more and more like the food served days ago, because it was. they must never throw anything out. they just keep on adding to it. i had a stomach ache on day 4 and full blown by 5. i was not alone. you had to hold your nose as you walked through our hall. so was it something i ate or a bug? we will never know but i think it was something i ate. there is a homemade pizza place in the buffet at night. that was probably the freshest item we ever ate. ate twice in the big dining room. servers are awesome. food is boring and mass produced. nothing we ate was ever "Delicious". the desert tables were a joke. cake icing and the cake on every cake or cup cake had a stale crunch. cookies are cheap, mass produced and frankly not worth the calories. not one desert was "delicious". this cruise over priced! spoke with other mates who felt exactly the same!

Celebrity Review This was our 4th cruise and first time on a Celebrity ship. We´ve cruised Carnival, Holland America, and Silversea. Obviously we cannot compare Celebrity with Silversea, but for the price point we very much enjoyed the Celebrity Summit. Cabin and balcony were comfortable with plenty of space to store things. Maintained clean throughout our trip. We enjoyed the food, particularly the dinners in the main dining room. Very nice service and delicious food with good wine choices. We chose the celebrity select dining. We made dinner reservations nightly and never had to wait more than just a couple of minutes to be seated. We prefer to sit by ourselves, which we were able to do. Due to limited space, the tables for 2 are placed very close to each other. Whether or not we enjoyed a true dinner for 2 really depended on how sociable the people seated next to us were feeling. We had nice dinners both when we kept to ourselves, and when we felt as if we had a table with another couple. As we said, the service at dinner was great. There was 1 exception. My husband enjoys an after dinner drink while on vacation. A nice selection of after dinner drinks is included on the menu. He ordered one with desert each night, but it was hit or miss when, or even if, it would arrive. It sometimes appeared we ordered from the wrong person, however, this was never communicated clearly. Once we were told the assistant waiter was responsible for this. Anyway, we would have to ask for the drink multiple times. On the last evening we asked each of the 3 members of our wait team for this drink over a 15 minute period. We finished desert, then waited an additional 15 minutes. The drink never arrived, so we left. Not a huge complaint, but we weren´t making a special request, just ordering a drink from the menu. Don´t understand what the issue was. We liked the main areas of the ship. The indoor pool / solarium area is nice. The main pool is nice too, but the smoke bothered us after a while. The upper decks are quieter with beautiful views, but no pools, so it can get a little hot up there. Very pretty areas though. Only took advantage of 1 show, since we´re not very into the typical song and dance numbers. There was 1 magician. We enjoyed him, even though some of the special effects weren´t working during this performance. There was 1 comedian, and we accidentally missed this performance, which we were disappointed about. We loved the rooftop terrace and the outdoor movies. Lots of fun. There was drink service available up there during the movie. Very nice. There were some choices included as far as movies in the stateroom, and also a couple of news channels, which we enjoyed. Drink packages were worth purchasing. Embarkation and disembarkation were very smooth and easy. However the muster drill was the worst we´ve experienced. We stood indoors, in a hot & stuffy area, shoulder to shoulder, for at least 30 minutes before any information or instructions even began. These drills have always been pretty quick and easy for us on other cruises. Not sure what was going on - maybe it was just a bad day for them. We had a very nice vacation and thought the crew members were extremely friendly and professional. We would cruise with Celebrity again and would recommend this ship to others. Very nice Caribbean cruise. 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.
