We chose this cruise for the Southern Caribbean itinerary. I have been on 50 plus cruises and traveled with 5 others age 25 to 55. First off, the ship is spotless. Yes it is older but beautiful non the less. The ship is definitely in need of an overhaul but still nice. The crew is wonderful and many called us by name after just one encounter. The cruise director Patrick and his staff were great! We only had one sea day but they were also ready to get the fun started. We used Uber from our hotel to the port and after the cruise. Very easy and about 1/3 of the cost of a taxi. Plus the Uber driver we’re great! When you leave the cruise terminal just ask security where the Uber pick up is. Do not ask the folks selling shuttles they lied to us and told us there is no Uber in San Juan. The pick up is to the right of the terminal exit around the corner. Now back to the cruise. The food in MDR was good and the service was quick. We were in Aqua Class so we also ate at Blu a few times. Blu has outstanding service but we were not impressed with the food selections. The afternoon canapés delivered to our cabin were disgusting. They were only delivered 4 days and one of those days a long blond hair was in the food. Also, most of the canapés were unidentifiable, why don’t they come with a description so we know what’s on the plate? There were a few unidentifiable items on the buffet at dinner every night. Why not put a sign on each and every item? I don’t like to guess what the food is. Speaking of buffet, every other cruise line offer fat free salad dressing on the buffet EXCEPT Celebrity...big miss Celebrity...many people like to have healthy choices. Speaking of healthy choices the Aqua spa cafe was consistently very good but it is basically the same old things every day..,ship to ship. Time to change it up Celebrity. Comedian and bands that played on the ship were very good. Production shows stunk. Read Less

This was my 31st cruise and my 1st with Celebrity ... sadly I was a bit disappointed ... I expected it to be a notch above the rest but it was certainly no better than any of the other cruise lines...the entertainment seemed to be lacking in several areas .... buffet was poor and food was cold there...but on a positive note we definitely enjoyed the dining room each night and the food there was very good ....the three people that did stand out was our waiter Elvis his assistant Leroy and our room Stewart Eddy... they were exceptional and made the cruise enjoyable...all in all an ok cruise and in saying that I will most likely give Celebrity another try at some point but not interested in doing the Summit again...for now we will just continue sampling all the cruise lines ...and hopefully my next Celebrity review will be a little more Inspiring. Cheers! Read Less

We travel over Thanksgiving yearly. This year we were going with our daughter and son-in-law. We chose this cruise mostly because we had never been to any of the ports other than San Juan and St Thomas. St Kitts, St. Lucia, Antigua, and Barbados were new for us. The price was good and we had a generous on board credit along with the classic beverage package. We used frequent flyer miles on Southwest. The flights to San Juan were pricey and I needed quite a few miles per ticket. I booked the first day November tickets opened up and had to take what was available. But we managed. We left a few days before the cruise so we could stop and see friends in Orlando for a couple days. Our daughter had a red eye out of Denver on Thursday night. Our trip to San Juan was uneventful. Not so for our daughter. Snowy weather hit on Thursday and she had numerous delays and did not get to San Juan til 8pm on Friday evening. We stayed at Hyatt Place very near the pier on Friday night. The hotel was fine. We all were tired so went to bed early. We slept in Saturday morning and decided to go to Punta de Vista in Old Town San Juan for lunch before we boarded. It has a roof top patio with not much shade. You take an elevator and then need to walk up a flight of stairs. It is not handicap friendly. We had a nice lunch and the food was good. The staff is very nice. We left our bags at the hotel and took a Lyft to and from the hotel to the restaurants and then onto the port. The driver dropped us off at the wrong terminal and we had to walk across the parking lot to Celebrity Summit. It was not marked very well. I had asked for a wheelchair for my husband as he was having a difficult time with his blood sugar that day. We had to wait as they were understaffed where you entered the terminal. Once we got the wheelchair we had a Celebrity employee escort us inside. We had completed the preboarding process and checkin was a breeze. I don't think it took us 1/2 hour and we were onboard greeted with a class of champagne. The rooms were ready so we headed to our room. I find so many of the reviews are from Suite Passengers. We just had a regular room and were quite satisfied. It was clean and our room steward introduced himself and left his number if we needed anything. We were mid ship and had no complaints. The bedding could be better, but was not bad. As we were boarding we were approached about specialty dining. They were offering a 20% discount. I declined but said I would take a 30% one. They agreed and we booked Qsine for the first night at 7:30. We unpacked and went to the muster drill. We had a very nice experience at Qsine and the food was very good. It was a great way to start our cruise. We went to the comedian's show at 10pm. He was pretty good. We had precooked several excursions using our onboard credit during the time they were 20% off. This saved us some money. But one of our excursions was cancelled due to lack of participation. We were not notified until the day before. They offered a substitute which was more expensive and they would not honor our 20% discount. If I have any complaints about celebrity is their shore excursion office. The people are rude and very inflexible. I had a disappointing experience on our last cruise to Bermuda on the Summit. Unfortunately a passenger on our excursion passed away during the excursion. Of course the excursion was cut short and the boat ride back to the boat was quite somber. They did not offer any type of compensation for the passengers. I know it was not Celebrity's fault, but they did not deliver what we paid for. And then this year they cancelled the excursion and were very rude when I asked for my original 20% off. This area could definitely use some improvement. We did enjoy the excursions we went on. My daughter loved the scuba diving in St Thomas and swimming with the turtles in Barbados. My husband and I loved the Catamaran and beach bbq to Nevis in St Kitts. We all enjoyed the trip to the mud baths in St Lucia. I had booked a beach day at Beach Limerz in Antigua. They had a taxi waiting for us at the port and it is a beautiful resort with reasonable prices. We took a water taxi to water island directly from the pier in St Thomas. A free bus to a small beach bar was waiting for us after we got off the water taxi. Beach chairs and umbrella was included with any purchase. It was easy to get to and very reasonable. Since we had on board credit I took advantage of negotiating 30% discount at both Sushi on 5 and Tuscan Grill. The food was great at both venues. My daughter felt this really enhanced our dining experience. We did find the food in the main dining room to be good, but it is not the same as the specialty dining experience. We either had breakfast in the dining room or room service. We just don't like to fight the crowds at the buffet. For early excursions we used room service and our only complaint was the food could have been hotter. The other days we ate in the dining room and had no complaints. Since we had stops every day except the last day we used the buffet to eat when we returned to the ship. If we ate lunch we went to the very back of the buffet to the grill where they prepared fresh meat to order. We then sat on the very back of the ship outside. There is a bar there and it is very easy to get a drink. One day we just had a burger at the grill by the pool. It was very good. We had the classic beverage package and were very satisfied with it. A couple times we did upgrade to a specialty drink or martini. But it would not have been worth upgrading to the premium package. When we were at the specialty restaurants they did not charge us an upgrade fee when we ordered one of the featured drinks. We enjoy the solarium pool and spent some time there. The last day at the sea was the nicest day at sea I have ever had. It was sunny in the low 80's and the seas were very calm. We spent the day on deck 11 enjoying the sun and relaxing. On disembarkment morning we had a relaxing breakfast in the main dining room. By the time we finished our number had been called and we left the ship. There was a line but I don't think it took us 1/2 hour to get through. Our luggage was easy to find and we were out the door. We had flights after 5pm so I booked an all day tour with Ellis with a drop off at the airport at 3. It was a very good tour. He took us to a beach, the rainforest, and the weekend pig roast outside of San Juan. We had plenty of time to get through security and our flights were on time. My husband and I had to go through Baltimore to St Louis and my daughter and husband Fort Lauderdale to Denver. It was a long day, our daughter said it took over an hour for her to get her luggage in Denver and they had to wait for the second shuttle as the first was full. We all got home late but luckily Sunday was a down day for all of us and we had a chance to recuperate for work on Monday. All in all it was a great trip. We enjoyed the ship and enjoyed all the ports. I know the Summit is older and heading for dry dock after the first of the year, but we had no complaints. Would cruise her again. Read Less
