This was the first cruise after the Summit Renovation that is part of the Celebrity Revolution. The ship is beautiful, to say the least. I booked the Concierge Class state room out of curiosity. I read that if the difference is only $100 - $150 per person for the week that we should do it for the perks. I liked the stateroom size and location. We like a nice sized stateroom and balcony. I looked at the Aqua Class but decided we would not use it with only 1 sea day in this itinerary. Boarding was quick and effortless with no lines for Concierge Class. The Embarkation luncheon was what you would expect in a dining room on a nice ship. It was quiet and relaxing. The gin and tonic I ordered was good. In fact, we enjoyed the Main Dining room and the buffet more than the specialty dining. We did the GO BEST offer for this cruise and I do recommend it. It is money that would be spent anyway, and the upgrade to the Premium Beverage package makes any cruise charges minimal. Concierge Class comes with perks, besides the Embarkation luncheon in the main dining room. We received a bottle of sparkling white wine which we enjoyed the first day. It opens like a Champagne bottle so no cork screw is needed. I packed one but we did not use it. We received the bowl of fresh fruit beginning on day 2, and I finally told our steward we had enough for the week after the second day. We received the afternoon snacks each afternoon between 3 and 4 PM, and they succeeded in ruining our appetites for dinner. We did not eat them every afternoon. No serving utensils come with them and sometimes a piece of crusty bread or tortilla chips would have been nice additions. We did not inquire about the pillow menu since we were comfortable with what was in the cabin. The robes and towels are nice and plush. I would not book Concierge Class for the perks. They are just nice additions. I booked it for the added space in the room. I ordered a continental breakfast one morning through Room Service. One thing I liked was the telephone call from the kitchen letting us know it was on its way to us. We took it out to the balcony and enjoyed hot coffee, bread and pastries with some of the left over afternoon fruit. It was a very pleasant morning. We also ordered lunch one afternoon through Room Service. I ordered 2 Chicken Caesar salads, which were excellent. We got the cheese platter and fruit platter, and I think I preferred it to the Concierge Class fruit bowl and snacks. The snacks are a little different and some days were quite enjoyable. I ended up going to a bar to get a mojito and coke, since the only complimentary beverages with Room Service are tea, lemonade, and milk. We learned that we needed to request ice for our drinks. The only mojito worth ordering was a frozen mojito from the pool bar. The lime and mint leaves are blended into the drink. It is delicious. The gin and tonics varied, and we learned to order a double shot of gin in them. The martini bar and main dining room made the strongest drinks. Some bartenders were better than others. The Sunset bar behind the Oceanview Cafe (buffet) was a nice addition. There were bars we did not frequent, and we did not try everything on the ship. We booked Specialty dining with our On Board Credit. Qsine is interesting, but we liked the filet mignon the best and it was served last. If you do this restaurant, resist the temptation to order as many as they say you can. Order an appetizer for each of you to share, as well as 2 different entrees. Then order dessert from the menu. The surprise dessert was surprisingly disappointing. The Tuscan Grille is hard to get to unless the forward elevator is used. It is off the beaten path and was not crowded. I did not like the lasagne, but the crab cake appetizer was excellent. I think this one is one we will not repeat. We had a fantastic broiled lobster tail dinner in the main dining room one night. This dinner made us question the need for Specialty dining on a Celebrity ship. The only entertainment we enjoyed was the ‘December 63’ show which features the music of the Four Seasons. The other entertainment was just okay, and we do not go to any of the late night comedy shows or events. Read Less

Well, it was our first cruise to this part of the Caribbean and we picked as to the number of different islands during the cruise. We‘ve been on a number of other cruises before, several of those with Celebrity which is so far our favorite cruise line. Although we enjoyed the cruise, I have to say it does not fully met our expectations. The itinerary was interesting, the islands are beautiful but very poor, i would have expected that they benefit much more from all the Cruise ship tourists coming over the year. We knew upfront that the summit is an older ship and will undergo a major overhaul shortly after our cruise. Anyhow, we recently have been on the Millennium just as well short before going into dry-dock. The overall appearance of the Millennium was nicer, cleaner and better maintained than our impression from the Summit. Food (we mainly went to the main restaurant for the fixed seating) was good quality, although we do have the feeling that the overall quality of food on Celebrity shipps is slightly getting down. Disappointing was the variety of food, menu was pretty much the same as during our last cruise on Millenium last October. That combined with a not extensive selection each given evening does not support the feeling of getting your money worth. Instead with all „special events“ being promoted by the staff you get the feeling that the cruise line wants you to pay additionally if you like good quality. We went on several days to the spa cafe for breakfast or lunch, they have nice small (and more or less healthy) food, however it is disappointing that the menu seems to never change, so after some day you had everything and it becomes boring. Service in the main restaurant was as good as always. Staff is very friendly, attentive and professional. However, the Sommelier concept (which we love as ware wine lovers) does not work anymore, if the the Sommelier has to many table to serve. How can a Sommelier advise you if he is mostly in a rush? He still did his best and we got nice wines to drink. But here as well as for the food, wine menu could need more changes from one cruise to the other. Positively we noted that the beer selection increased and they had a decent number of different beers on board. Beside the good service in the main restaurant we noted that service level in the Cafe al Bacio and in some bars was not as good as used from Celebrity. In the bars we had the feeling of a lack of staff, in Cafe al Bacio staff was there but not really attentive and not always as friendly as we are used to from former Celebrity cruises. For the stateroom, we had the impression that the staff has to less time for each stateroom to keep it in real good shape. They probably increased the number of staterooms each person has to look after. We booked three excursions with Celebrity and two on our own. We liked the fact that the groups were not as big as on other cruises, however that is most likely just based on the fact that the busses on the islands are smaller (and older). Especially as the busses are older and not that comfortable is was disappointing, that on the cruise line excursions this busses were pretty full packed, where the privately book tours left some seats empty to make it a little bit more comfortable. And if you now expect that those privately book tours have been more expensive, just the opposite is true. Cruise line charges more for less comfort. Overall: I still like Celebrity, staff is (mostly) very friendly and attentive, although the cruise line have to make sure that there is enough staff available. We very much liked the room service, which comes (except for a short blackout period during the night) free of charge and we enjoyed having breakfast in the room, although the selection in balcony class was not that extensive. However it was sufficient for a short breakfast before going on excursions. We like the ample room in the public areas, we never had the feeling the ship is too crowded and we alsways found a quiet place to sit and relax. However, we don’t like that we get the impression of a continuing lowering of quality and a continuing increase of „add-ons“ sold for „a fee“ (which is mostly much more than justified by the added quality. I know that’s not only true for Celebrity and maybe not only for cruise-lines too. Seems that companies try to reduce more and more the base fares to attract customers which then find out that they have to pay more and more additionally to get the service which was advertised and which they thought they have bought. I hope that will change back to a fair and transparent pricing. Customers may be sometimes not really clever but on general not as dump as marketing specialists believe, especially not those with enough money to pay for quality. Read Less

We had never done a cruise before and OH WOW!!! were we surprised. Ship was huge and beautiful. We ate mostly at the Oceanview café as it had plenty of variety. Stir Fry section in the evenings was our favorite and late pizza. Staff were great!! We ate at Qsine. Was very interesting. 3 dishes to chose from each then dessert. Was very good and so much food. Presentations were well done. We ate at Tuscan Grille was a pleasant experience our server was very pleasant. Great suggestions and meal was wonderful. Our Cruise Director Patrick was wondeful and the gentlemen that made our stay and every day with a smile was wonderful. Shout out to Arthur!!! Room was always clean, bed made and fresh towels. The Poolside bars, barstaff also pools and hot tubs were great!! Movie night under the stars was magical ;) We loved the excursions, saw so many places that we could not have done in 12 days. The evening shows at the Celebrity Theater and activities at the Revelations were great and fun!! Silent disco OMG that was great!! Canyon Ranch for fitness was great!! Massages were wonderful both my husband and I loved it! BUT: Being first timers, our Cruise & Vacation Consultant Expedia CruiseShipCenters did not inform us of an evening attire for every evening!! Therefore, most of our evenings were walking very quickly by the Martini bar, Grand foyer, Rendez-Vous or Cellar Masters. We have NEVER ever felt so out of place, and judge by so many people dressed up. Stares, and looking down on us incredible!! If we ever chose to cruise again, we will know next time to bring more evening attires. I suggest having those gatherings in an area of the deck where it is closed off and away from people walking through in order to get to where they are trying to go to. The age group was an OLDER crowd mostly retired people 60 and over. The other downfall was the internet pakage. Why not add it in as a hidden cost? Up the price of the cruise no one would ever know. They would simply be appreciative of the internet pakage added in with the price. Other than dreading the evenings dress up and age group everything else was great. Read Less

Winter getaway from Maryland. Itinerary changed due to propulsión problem in San Juan. Tried Qsine twice, dissappointed both times. Food subpar. Service only satisfactory. Halfway point st sea. Entertainment not so good, expected better. Service in dining room exellent. Upsell for Qzene was not apreciated, interferred the otherwise superior service. Port calls were smooth. Premium Líquor package was worth the price. Internet service was good. Excursion choices were adaquate. Some were clearly casting time in port. The day that we were in port from 8am to 5pm were largly just ok. The "rainforest" Tour was educational, but nota scenic. The beaches were nice but a lo very mucho alike. The "ABC" islands were intetesting but not with the extra travel time. The good in the main dining room was repetitive and not as good as I expected. The service provided by Nitin was excellent. Overall I'm glad I took theCruise, but I won't recommend the Celebrity Summit. Read Less

About us: My husband and I generally cruise once a year for 12-14 days. We’ve been on about 10 cruises. We are in our early 60’s. We don’t do water sports, drink or gamble so cannot comment on anything related to these activities. No, this is not due to religious beliefs. We’re just boring. Most Celebrity guests are 50 plus. The longer the cruise, the older the crowd. We left port a day late due to ship issues. That meant we lost a day in Aruba. I personally was just happy the ship did not break down in the middle of the ocean. The itinerary was changed numerous times, once before the actual cruise. We wouldn’t have known about this first change if our friends’ travel agent had not informed them. MUSTER STATION Our group had to stand the entire time - in lines, no less. Short people could not see the demonstrations. It was ridiculous and useless. Thank goodness we didn’t need to evacuate the ship. We would not have been prepared. THE SHIP This cruise ship is going to be refurbished. There is an outdoor movie theatre that plays movies all day but it’s unsheltered on the top deck and frequently windy. Rumour has it Summit is removing the library and replacing it with inside rooms. I think that would be a real shame. The library always had people in it, even though 80% of the books were missing. Greed to the detriment of people’s enjoyment is not a good thing. The library is a “must have” for me as my husband goes to bed early and I read in the library. I hope they brighten the ship up with a Caribbean colour scheme. Tones of brown is a colour scheme for a hotel, not a cruise ship. (Years ago I was on RC's Adventure of the Seas and it was the most beautiful ship I have been on - vibrant yellow-golds and blues with mosaics everywhere. It was refurbished afterwards. I hope they kept the colour scheme.) They also need WAY more lounge chairs on deck 4. You have a ship of 3,000+ people and less than 15 chairs on each side of Deck 4. THE FOOD We ate in the anytime dining room and Oceanview Cafe. We did not go to any specialty restaurants. I liked most of the food in the Oceanview. Some of the meals in the dining room were wonderful. Some were not. The chocolate desserts were TERRIBLE. I am a chocoholic and did not eat more than a bite of any chocolate cake because they were bitter. What a disappointment after the awesome desserts on Celebrity Silhouette. Note: We like the freedom of anytime dining. You get to choose when you eat. You get to sit with different people every evening versus the same people for the whole cruise. And you have the freedom to eat with new friends you meet on the ship. I bought the basic soda package. I was pressured to up-grade it repeatedly but didn’t cave in. They were frequently out of club soda but servers (one with persuasion) gave me Perrier instead. STAFF Most of the staff were very friendly. Our waiter, Wi, was fabulous. Our housekeeper, Yolanda, kept our room neat and tidy. Donovan was wasted as the hand sanitizer guy. He was wonderfully entertaining while encouraging people to clean their hands. He should have been at the ice cream station. They really needed someone upbeat, who loved their job, in that position. The person who works there is the first person you see entering the Oceanview Cafe. That person sets the tone, and needs to be friendly and welcoming. STORES ON THE SHIP I personally would like more variety, not just clothes, jewellery, etc. A variety store with paperbacks, magazines, etc. would be a welcome addition. I prefer to spend my money at individually owned shops and kiosks on the islands to support the islanders. INTERNET This is a total rip-off. Save your money and use the internet at the ports. Most places have free internet if you buy something; even a soda will do. SHOWS IN THE THEATRE The entertainment was hit or miss. Pete Matthews was a hilarious juggler. I give him an 11/10. Chad Chesmark was billed as a magician, but he was mainly a comedian. I give him an 7.5/10. Uptown was an amazing band that got the audience really involved, a 10/10. “All McCartney Live” was a great show as well, 9/10. My husband saw Jeff Nease. I had a bad cough so I didn’t go. He gives him a 7/10. We did not enjoy the ship’s singers and dancers and only went to one show in its entirety, but the ship’s orchestra was excellent. The remaining performers were a 6/10 in my opinion. While wandering the ship I’d come across some good bands playing in a various venues. And there were a few Karaoke singers that could have gone professional. SHIP SEA DAYS I was not impressed with the Cruise Director, Rick. Activities on the ship were few and far between. I cannot understand why they do not take advantage of all the knowledge of their guests, many of whom could give lectures on interesting experiences, jobs, hobbies, etc. They could have a sign up sheet and designate a small venue for that purpose. The ship could state these speakers are unvetted so they are not responsible for the content of the lectures. If you don’t like it, you can leave. There were no craft activities, educational or hobby courses; just lectures about the islands, shopping or ship amenities to my knowledge. ISLANDS Regarding the following comments about shopping: I rarely spend more than $50 on any one item anywhere. So when I comment on shopping I am not referring to the abundant expensive chain jewellery stores that are everywhere. My husband and I generally just walk around the islands as we’ve taken tours already. We love SAN JUAN. The forts are fascinating. (If you only have time for one, do the bigger one.) The shopping is great. There are lots of restaurants. (We love a locals’ restaurant called Cafe Manolin at 251 San Justo. It is about a block away from my favourite store that has local jewellery, art and gifts called Puerto Rican Art and Crafts at 204 Fortaleza St.) Note: Next time our return flight leaves late, I will book an excursion with the ship that tours San Juan and then goes to the airport. Sitting in the airport all day was a waste of a lovely day. BONAIRE has lots of shops and great beaches. There is a store that sells local jewellery called Elements. (Bonaire is tiny so you can find it.) ARUBA also has great beaches. (No, I can’t be specific because we don’t go to them.) If you try to take the tram you must stay at the front near the tracks because there’s NO formal line and people crowd in front of you to get on the tram. We missed two trams and gave up. We took a tour on CURACAO with one of the many tour guides vying for our business. (As long as you take a tour that gets you back well before the ship leaves you should be fine with an island tour company. Some of our best tours have been non-ship excursions.) Curacao has the oldest synagogue in the Western Hemisphere. It has a dirt floor and is quite interesting. If you like history, it’s a must see. You can walk there from the ship. Curacoa also has a long bridge that rotates, which is quite neat. All the Dutch islands are lovely and, compared to other Caribbean islands, well-to-do. They are safe so you can have an enjoyable day just walking around the town. ST. CROIX basically has nothing but a beach right by the ship. There are a few kiosks. You can take an island bus to Frederiksted (which is a bigger city) for next to nothing or pay a lot more for a taxi. The taxi drivers lied to us about the bus and said it didn’t go there. Ask a local for bus information. We did not end up going to Frederiksted. I’m a children’s author and did an author visit at a local school instead. ANTIGUA’s infrastructure is very poorly maintained. It does have a new library with free wi-fi. There is also an impressive Anglican church under reconstruction with centuries old graves, and a museum of the island’s history, all within walking distance from the ship. However, if you have mobility issues note that the sidewalks are horrible. In ST. KITTS we took a private tour with Quincy. He was a really good tour guide. We have taken two previous tours with Beulah Mills (www.tourstkittsandnevis.com) without pre-booking. She was not working the day we were in St. Kitts. She is awesome. St. Kitts is a very poor island. Do NOT take a picture with the monkeys as they are stolen from the wild and do not appear to be well treated. ST. THOMAS is my favourite island because of the shops. My favourite store sells adorable hand-painted outfits that I buy for my grandchildren. (Sorry, I can’t remember the store’s name but it’s on a street with no traffic. There’s a bench in front of it.) My husband liked the historical ambience of PONCE. I was not feeling well and did not get off the ship so I can’t give an opinion. PLEASE ENSURE ANY EXCURSIONS YOU TAKE ARE ANIMAL FRIENDLY AND DO NOT SUPPORT CAPTURING ANIMALS FROM THE WILD. Read Less

We originally chose this cruise for two reasons. The first was the itinerary, seven days on the move with only one day at sea. The second was more sentimental. The Summit was the first ship my wife and I cruised on, and set the bar high in so many ways, and this cruise did nothing to dispel those notions. Foremost was the excellent service on the crew's part, one delicious meal after another. Stewards and others going out of their way to make sure you were enjoying every minute, or just relaxing on deck reading and watching the world go by. The shows were all excellent, and when it came to our ports of call, like I said earlier, the itinerary left nothing to be desired. It's an older ship with a few wrinkles showing, but it doesn't thrill you with baubles. It is all in the attitude and performance of the crew. Glad we made another round with you Summit. See you again soon! Read Less

We had sailed Celebrity several times before and they serve our demographic (retired couple) quite well. We wanted to cruise out of the Northeast so that we could avoid flying. The Summit is due for a total refurb in Feb 2019, and it does need it. The decor is a bit dated, the cabins need some rework and the cabin-locks were troublesome from beginning to end. With that said, a cruise is made or broken by the staff, and Celebrity always has friendly, professional, competent people, in all roles. This is why we plan on cruising them again and again. The entertainment was 'average' at best, nothing to write home about, I am afraid. The Guest Relations desk was superb, very helpful, especially in the continual dealings we had with our cabin key-entry (one of our two keys would fail every 36 hours!). The food was always excellent and the entire Wait-Staff was superb. I DO wish that their Internet was more affordable--I mean, REALLY?! And their pricing plans may work for kids and millenials, but that's about IT! Also, the TV feed was 'limited', and repetitive, not particularly helpful on our rough-seas sea days. Read Less

Embarkation was seamless. Arrive after 11, and it’s a walk on. We used handicap to disembark. The helper was pleasant and made it easy. The cabin was clean but worn. Plenty large enough and the stewards were very attentive. In Aqua class, all meals were in BLU restaurant. They have a good selection, and we found no Ned for specialty dining. The staff was great and the wine steward was very knowledgeable. On the first morning, room service was disappointing, but was corrected the next day. Used the gym everyday. It was good. Everything I needed. We’d seen the shows before, so we enjoyed them as expected. We did no shore excursions. We have family and friends on the island. But the selection was good. If time allowed, I would have done the bike tour. Let me start with "I really like Bermuda", but you need to understand that, after the below, it's now a love:hate relationship. And, I firmly believe that Bermuda Tourism and the Dockyards Management don;t care at all about the tourists. Let me walk you through it. We had a nice day with family and friends in Hamilton. Great Grandma was with me, and she is 93 (a spry 93). So we had lunch and then took the ferry back to the Dockyards, landing around 4:00. And now it'll all go wrong. First, she needed a bathroom. There is one public bathroom that I had to ask directions to, since it isn't well marked. It's between 2 buildings, recessed in an alley behind a restaurant. Oh, and it's not Handicap Accessible. And, it's 20-30 yards in the wrong direction, assuming on a cruise. Next, it's 90+ degrees, and I wanted to get her some shade and water. At 4:00, there wasn't any where to find a bottle of water. I can find fudge and run swizzles. But a bottle of water... not so much. No public fountains. So, we decide to go back to the boat. There is usually a nice shuttle that runs right to Celebrity from the ferry area. But, there is a one year (never be done in a year) upgrade to the docks by Celebrity, so the shuttle isn't running. They told me there is no place to turn around. I suggested the parking lot where the paid tour buses turn, but nope (I guess the free shuttle vs. paid bus conflict went to the buses). So we had to walk. We though we'd bench hop. But the benches are metal in the sun, with not a hint of shade. And once you get 1/2 there, there are no benches. A little shade, if you can stand. I now have an exhausted, thirsty senior, but I can get help from the ship, since it's on the other side of customs. We get through customs and into a shade area. Where i can get here water and cold compresses. But, the ship attendees seeing her distress stood there mute. I had another passenger go get the wheelchair. Which they finally got. Even then,no one offered any thing outside, I'll help you get to the room. A lot of water, shade and rest, and she recovered enough to eat, and spend the next day relaxing on board. I complained vehemently to Celebrity who told me they could do nothing, since it was BTA's responsibility. If it was costing my company money, I'd have found a way. And, I got caught up in the assignment of blame cycle. So, I'm blaming everyone. What could they have done? Added 6 benches with shade and some shade to the one already in place. That wold take care of 1/2 of the issue. Water misters are cheap and would provide cooling. I mean this in not a third world vacation or country. The tech is there and cheap. It is a lack of caring and will that causes these issues, So, there you are. We're avoiding Cruises and the Dockyards until I'm can see some resolution. But right now, all I can say is Bermuda/BTA doesn't care about their tourists. Go somewhere else. Read Less

This was my birthday cruise chosen because it went to Bermuda, one of my favorite places. Also the itinerary included 2 nights and almost 3 full days in Bermuda, the longest of any cruise I have taken to Bermuda. We drove to the port from NC and stayed at the Town and Country Suites using the sleep, park, and ride option. Shuttle to and from the ship by the contracted shuttle company was smooth and efficient. Embarkation and disembarkation at Cape Liberty was the smoothest I have ever had. Crowd control was excellent and we moved on and off the ship with ease. Our cabin was 3064 and was adequate in size and storage. It was forward of center on the starboard side and was very quiet. I liked the night light in the bathroom which most of the newer ships have. This allows one to visit the facility in the middle of the night without turning on the bathroom light and waking your spouse up. Enforcement of the dress code in the main dining room is inconsistent. Most people in shorts were walked straight to their table. I only saw one person turned away for wearing a tank top. Either enforce the dress code or do away with it! We could not get our preferred traditional early dining seating arrangement this cruise so we decided to try out select dining. It was a disaster and we won't do that again. The first two nights were memorable for the very long lines waiting outside the dining room for seating--and we had reservations! Our reservation those two nights were for 5:30, but it was after 6pm before we were seated both nights. No reservations were available any night between 5:30 and 8pm so we usually opted for 8pm. The sign outside the entrance clearly stated those with reservations to one side and those without to the other side, but the staff consistently told people either side was ok causing further confusion. Aside from the long lines, the service and food was very good. We ate on night at the Tuscan Grill and the experience was very good, much like it used to be in the main dining room. Our food was excellent and the service was excellent! Entertainment in the main theater was outstanding. The Celebrity singers and dancers are very talented and gave 3 top notch performances plus two additional short productions in the Revelations Bar. Since we had been to Bermuda 3 times before, we did not take any shore excursions but did everything on our own using the 2-day ferry/bus pass. We spent the first day at the beach (Horseshoe Bay) and at Hamilton. The 2nd day at St Georges, the crystal caves, and Swizzle Inn. The 3rd day at the Kings Wharf and snorkel beach. Read Less

Friends who work in school systems could only go in August-I never cruise then-I love getting away in the winter from the snow!! But we did it and it was so hot--I would never do that again! The ship is beautiful and on a smaller scale (about 2200 guests) than the NCL that was in port with us with their (over) 5000 guests!! Talked to some of the NCL people and they said never again---too big-lines very long We had been upgraded to Aqua Class which means we had the luck to eat breakfast and supper every day there!!! It was heaven--Lamb chops and french onion soup several nights--If it was not on the menu, you just had to ask!! Never a problem! I had seen some reviews about only being offered squab or pidgeon, but let me tell you----I never ever saw that!!! Some people just love to complain!! The food was served just right!!! Not too much--Not like the buffet where hogs pile their plate as if never to eat again---The lobster tail and Beef Wellington my friend and I had one night was the best I have ever had in 40 years of cruising. No doubt!! No kids either!!! Quiet friendly helpful service by the happiest staff I have ever encountered!!! The nightly shows were fine--nothing to rave about, but fine---- I will be on Celebrity again. We were on deck 11- Cabin was tiny!!! And we could use the Persian Garden sauna and steam---But it was so hot in Bermuda, that was the last thing we wanted to do!! So we did not . Read Less
