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.

I was invited on this cruise with a co-worker, so I could not say no. Bermuda has always been a destination I've wanted to go to and it did not disappoint. The port at Cape Liberty was easy to get to and very well organized. You drive up, porter takes your bags, you pull up to the indoor parking garage and voila! You go up an escalator to check in - all very quick and easy. The people on the ship were very friendly and aim to please. Our cabin attendant, Maria, was especially mindful of every request we made. (Concierge Class cabin). The casino manager, Craig, and slots manager, Adam were so outgoing and friendly - they joined me for my golf game, which I was initially going alone. They made my week! The beaches and attractions were easy to get to by ferry & bus. Wednesday night they have "Harbour Nights" in Hamilton. They close the main street and have dancing and street vendors out. Probably a good time to get some souvenirs. Horseshoe Bay Beach is a must! People say it's too crowded, but we discovered that the umbrella and chair rentals stopped at the lifeguard station, so we just laid our towels on the other side which was less populated. It wasn't too bad a walk to go check out Jobsons Cove and Warwick Long Bay as well. Beware that the under tow at Warwick is very strong and almost caused my friend to drown! Two helpful men along the beach had to help her out of the water. Crystal & Fantasy caves are very interesting to see, but pricey ($22 for 1 cave/$30 for 2) and the tour is very short. Gibb's Lighthouse is a bit of a hike up a hill then 187 steps to the top, so make sure you have proper footwear and energy to do this. The view from the lighthouse is phenomenal. We also took the ferry to St. Georges. Fort St. Catherine is there which we visited with a very handsome and super friendly shuttle driver, Patrick. We went on to Tobacco Bay beach after that. This is the place to bring kids. Super safe and protected from the large waves. Great music, restaurant, rentals and wifi. We also stopped at the Frog & Onion Pub at the Dockyard which had great snacks, much cheaper drinks than the ship and again free wifi. I bought 2 Bermuda Rum Cakes which are famous. They are expensive, but travel well (as we drove from Cape Liberty to Toronto) and they are delicious! Overall the ship and the island were a very memorable experience for me. Read Less

We had a wonderful vacation onboard the Celebrity Summit with myself and two children (9yo and 7yo). For context, we are well traveled including various trips to popular cities with lots of activities including expecting above average accommodations and service. Hands down... the Celebrity Summit team delivered on all fronts. Ill summarize the highlights below by service, activities, food, accommodations and child programs. Service was impeccable The service from the Celebrity Summit team's guest services, bars, restaurants, pool stewards, room stewards, exercise areas, medical staff, internet/IT staff, room service, on/off board staff, port staff and the officers, show-team and others was exceptional. To highlight a few: The room stewards quickly recognized we departed and changed/cleaned the room and even set up my children's stuffed animals and pajamas... how nice :-). The dining service was so attentive they recognized we wanted to make a show and depart early and accommodated a great evening by enabling us to depart in 60minutes. The entire team accommodated the additional day at sea due to the impending hurricane too... from everyone's perspective it was not recognized that we were out another day at sea unplanned. Activities were engaging and available. Each day great programs of activities were proposed in a schedule; truly not all could be done and you had many options depending on your level of engagement and interest. During the day, you could go to the pool for fun and music and games, go to another pool to relax and chill or decide to hide on the front/back deck where there were no-one else but a few people. This was truly surprising that with all the people they said they were accommodating you could actually be outside on the deck with a quiet and serene spot. Moreover, indoor activities were abundant from wii / kinect to line dancing and paper airplanes. Evenings continued with great dinners, great Broadway caliber shows and excellent four to five types of music and dancing to enjoy. Truly amazing options! The shows were great too... I went with the kids to all and they were all excellent. We've also done Broadway and these were top notch. On shore, we chose the private beach, swimming with the dolphins and then ferry and walk to Hamilton. Two of these were with shore excursions which were well organized, well orchestrated (i.e. they set up chairs for 3-on the beach for us... how nice ? ) and reasonably priced too. The ferry trip we did on our own but the ship staff provided great guidance and recommendations. Food was stellar and abundant The food was stellar! Evening dining was phenomenal and different every night; wow! The buffets for breakfast, lunch, and dinner... wait... it was like all day eating and all good... so hard to divide by which was breakfast, lunch and dinner. Looking back I recall three areas I did not get to try but wanted too but ate all the other areas already. The specialty dining room (normande), although we did not go b/c of the kids below 12, was great from everyone I heard! Next time, Ill plan to get the kids the childcare program and ask to be seated with a group... I definitely will want to try it next time. On top of being abundant... it was all excellent... and when asking other "frequent cruisers" they said the food was excellent too in comparison! Accommodations were roomy... Yes, I did say roomy but we did splurge for a Family View Suite (#9199). The rooms were clean, fresh, well maintained and modern. We split the bed into two for the kids then the room had a separate sliding door for two couches which turned into beds too. On top of that, the room had a balcony that was the size of the entire room...looking out the back of the ship! I would totally do this room again next time! Well done and I'm glad I got family view suite! Childcare programs were outstanding The program, activities, staff, planned events, special service and accommodations were outstanding. I was traveling with my 9yo son and 7yo daughter who loved the program and I loved the program for them loving the program. I joined the VIP kids club so I could pop them in / out for me to go to the gym or take an afternoon break or evening drink. By mid-week we were scheduling in time for them to go to the child program activity on top of the other events happening on the ship. Also, as a VIP they kids had a private meet the captain / bridge tour and also private meet the cast tour too. The great child program really made a great trip by all. In addition, given it was august there were kids on the boat but when I even was able to take "kid kid-breaks" by finding adult only pools and areas on the ship to decompress. Lastly, great ship, team, trip and vacation! Well done! Read Less

Background information on me, early 40'ish yr old woman sailing solo, this was my third cruise having previously had a good time on RCI's Majesty of the Seas and an absolutely horrible time on the Caribbean Princess last year. Any worries I had before this trip were blown out of the water! Ship - Spotless and well laid out. Helpful signage everywhere and if a staff member saw you looking they always offered to direct you to where you were going. Cabin and balcony was about the same size as other lines but much more nicely appointed than either RCI or Princess. Shower was quite a bit bigger than Princess as well. Lotion and shampoo dispensers are a nice touch. Cabin steward was very efficient and I hardly ever saw him. While I never thought I would say this, I loved the towel animals. How they make towels into what he did is beyond me, birds, turtles, monkeys hanging from the curtains, flowers etc. Buffet/Pool Grill Food - While I am generally not a fan of buffets, I have to say this was one of the better ones. The pizza, omelettes and little sandwiches in the afternoon were great. Burgers, wings and fries out by the pool were always good too. The only thing that was a tad annoying is that it never seemed like what was open when was consistent. Not a big deal in any case. I hardly went hungry during the day. Dining room and food- Very nicely laid out and I never encountered the "soft spots" in the floor that so many have posted about here. Service was uniformly excellent across the board from day one. Wait staff remembered preferences which was appreciated. Dinners were really good to great every night with a good variety to choose from every night. Great wine selection and service. Prices were about comparable to home. Only negative was that the waiter would always bring a dessert whether I wanted it or not and got all pouty when I wouldn't eat much of it. Champagne/Martini Bar/Poolside drink service - The first and last night offered "flights" in the Champagne/Martini bar which was great. A little taste of six different drinks. Drink service at the pool was fine, appreciated that they were not constantly pushing something or other all day long. Workshops on Board - Participated in both the Food and Wine Comparative pairing and the Riedel Wine glass workshops. Both were excellent with great wines and were really well done. Nightclub/Music in general - Revelations night club was generally pretty crowded although I thought the various "games" could have been conducted earlier in the evening leaving more time to crank the tunes instead of playing the Newlywed game at 11:00 at night. While the ages on the boat appeared to be 20's to 70's the music was really skewed to the Elvis/Beach Blanket Bingo and Moonlight Serenade eras all over the ship with the exception of the first night or two in Revelations. I like a pretty wide range of music but would have much preferred to have more current stuff in more places. Excursions - Did the High Hopes, High Ropes tour in Dominica, loved it! But you have to be in pretty decent shape or it might not be so much fun. Went on the Whale and Dolphin spotting tour in Grenada and unfortunately did not see a single fish. Boat was pretty small and seas ended up being a bit rough. Also went on the tour that goes to the Butterfly Farm and Aloe production facility and the Natural Bridge which was good as well. Great pictures from that one! Disembarkation - Pretty painless and no problems with the luggage thankfully. Cabbed it back to the airport. All in all this was a great trip! Can't say enough good things about it. Would not hesitate for a second to book again on this same agenda or another Celebrity cruise. Read Less
