Traveling from Souh Jersey with my family for the first time to Bermuda for the last July cruise, the cruise was amazing. We stayed on the 3rd level and were near the center of mostly everything we wanted to be by like the casino, martini bar, Rendezvous Lounge,.We had met all kinds of people from New Jersey or New York, even out on the west coast and all over the world, everyone was there to have a great time and always had a smile on there face! It was amazing it both that aspect and the scenery. Mind you the shows and performers the Celebrity Summit production staff had to offer were amazing as well! Stopping by Horshoe bay and Church bay or off the ship at night for some dancing! I will definitely be taking another cruise with the Celebrity Cruises in the near future and hope to meet even more people to share an amazing experience with! Read Less

This is my 5th Cruise with Celebrity (2nd on Summit). The ship seems a little better this year. Last year it was worn out (ripped chairs, etc). They are going to re-do the entire ship in Feb 2019 so that will be a big improvement. It really needs it. The ship lacks the "wow' factor that the other Celebrity ships have. Its very plain and dated. State rooms are okay except the outdated bathrooms and beds are too hard. Our room attendant on the 9th floor was excellent! Our room was always cleaned and turned over 2-3 times a day. The staff was not as friendly as usual. Many seemed tired and over worked. The Manager in the Shopping area (from Chile) was very nasty from the 1st day to the last. We were in Auqa Class so we dined in Blu. It was OKAY. Service was very slow even though it's a smaller dining area. Half the things we ordered we never received. We have had much better experience in Cosmopolitan in the past. Food was 3 stars at best. We did eat at Tuscon one night and that was a waste of money. Oceanside Buffet (main area) was like Golden Coral! Very disappointing this time around. Healthy options are lacking. Fruit was rotten. Celebrity is not a great cruise line for special diets (Gluten, Kosher, Vegan, etc) Room service forgot items on the list we put out on our door at night. They really pushed beverage packages, speciality restaurants and wine tasting to the point is was annoying. The gym was ok. Newer equiptment. The only problem was they keep it so hot in the room you feel like you are going to pass out. I really hope the renovation brings better restaurants and a more attractive and exciting ship. The days at sea are very boring. Entertainment is lacking. Read Less

Where should I begin? This review is not meant to disparage any of the very hard-working Celebrity Summit staff as we found the staff to be nice, friendly and hard working. Embarkation Port Bayonne: Easy, the lines move fairly quickly and efficiently. We saw some the Celebrity staff identify “older” clients in the line and move them to the lines for suites and “upper-tier level” guests to reduce the wait time which we thought was a nice thing to do. *Note taking a car from Manhattan to the port is always a risky proposition as the traffic can be smooth sailing or quite congested. This time, leaving on a Sunday, the traffic was pretty smooth. For the adventuresome person I would suggest taking a train from Manhattan to Newark and then taking Uber or something like that to the pier, way cheaper and potentially removes the risk of traffic delays. The Summit: Ship- Very much in need of refurbishing. Lots of visible rust and or freshly painted rust. Worn carpets, worn furniture. The ship is very understated in decoration so if you are expecting something to compare with newer more modern ships it does not compare, nor does it try to compare to be fair. Lots of wood and what I would say muted decorations. Stateroom: Veranda 9th deck forward. Size, the room was average in size with plenty of storage. I only found 2 US style normal plugs for electrical devices on the desk in the stateroom. The 9th floor balconies have an extending hangover roof from the 10th deck above that is nice to provide shade and cover from rain. However, I believe it makes it noisier, as the sound from the waves below are reflected by the steel ceiling back to the open balcony. Unfortunately, our room had a terribly musty smell as well as many of our neighbors. We called to see if we could move rooms but the ship was full. We would have gladly taken even an inside room to get away from the smell. Celebrity did attempt to clean the room again but we determined the smell seemed to be coming from the ventilation rather than any fabric smells. Finally, they offer us a scented room wick which only sweetened the musty smell. Celebrity did also send us a bottle of wine for our inconvenience. Bottom-line, they tried but there was not much I think they could do. The bathroom was a decent size however; as another sign of the ships age, the silver around the edges of the mirror has dissolved leaving an ugly edge around the mirror. Not a big deal but you would not like it in a decent hotel room. Cleanliness: I give it a mixed score. Though hand sanitizers are visible everywhere, there was spotty enforcement on using them. By comparison, our most recent trip on the Anthem of the Seas, you could not enter the buffet areas without someone visibly directing you to wash your hands. Only a couple of times on the Summit were we meet by someone squirting you a fresh dollop as we entered the buffet. Many times, we found the sanitizers to be empty. Additionally, I found the public men’s restrooms to be quite smelly. (Possibly, I do not know, if it may be caused by low volume water volume urinals to conserve water????) Staff: I found it nice that the captain and several of his staff took the time to visit us at the cruise critic meet-and-greet. Also, I think of the 15 plus cruises we have been on the captain was the most visible on this cruise as I have ever seen. Our cruise director was excellent and the staff was friendly. Food: I am probably not a good reviewer here as we only ate 2-times in the main dining room. We ate in the back of the ship every other meal. Only on evening 1 was the back crowded as every other night the back was nearly deserted with only a few people eating there. We guess it was because everyone liked the other food choices. The steaks I ate in the back were as good as the one-half inch thick New York Sirloin I received in the main dining room. Bermuda: We loved it. Felt very safe did not see a single person the entire time we were there begging or trying to get you to visit their store. We rented scooters and saw much more of the island than we think we normally would have. I believe you need to get out of the towns to see the very lush and tropical parts of the island. Public transportation is very good and affordable. We also jet-skied (highly recommend) and scuba dived (fair). Fellow Cruisers: A pretty good mix of ages and ethnicities. There were many younger couples and many with teenage kids. We definitely saw many people dress up for dinner and the evening shows. Entertainment: Very good for the smaller size venue and footprint that this ship has available. Debarkation: We opted for the self-directed luggage option. There was a very long line to leave the ship but it moved fairly smoothly and I would say we were off within 30 minutes. If you are in a hurry, us the porter service once in the terminal area as they seemed to take people to the front of the customs line. Value: A-Plus! We paid $949 for a guaranteed veranda room. Though I did not see the uniquely special service provided by Celebrity or participate in the fancier food (our choice) I felt we received a good value for our vacation dollars. I would probably look to try a newer more modern ship for our next Celebrity cruise though. Read Less
