We just did a 7 night southern Caribbean out of San Juan on the Summit. (Ports were San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Kitt’s, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados) Overall, we had a fantastic time. We enjoyed ourselves enough to book another cruise on the Summit for Fall 2019 going to the ABC islands. The Summit is an older ship, and is actually being completely refurbished this winter. The decor is slightly dated, and some of the facilities were obviously older - like the speakers in our stateroom didn’t work at all and the bathroom was dated and just had a flimsy shower curtain that made it hard not to get water all over the floor. One of the best things about the ship was the food! Breakfast at the Oceanview Buffet offered tons of variety. While the overall menu didn’t change, there were so many things to choose from that I never got bored. There was traditional American and English breakfast, carving stations, omelette stations, eggs Benedict station, hot cereal, cold cereal, waffles, pancakes and French toast with a variety of toppings... it seemed endless. When we couldn’t make it to the buffet, we ordered breakfast to the room and it was really nice as well, though not as much variety. Lunch was different every single day, but there were standards like the cheese and charcuterie every day. There was ice cream every day, pizza every day, pasta every day. We had dinner in the Cosmopolitan restaurant four nights, and tried all three specialty restaurants. We found no fault with the food at any of the dinner venues, but found service at the Cosmopolitan to be a bit hectic and disorganized. Service at all three specialty restaurants was nothing short of flawless. The pool area could get crowded in the afternoon and I did feel the pools were pretty small. A lot of times the pool chairs were taken up and there were not enough towels. Entertainment on the ship was very nice overall. I didn’t care for the house party band and the DJ would make some odd selections, but the nightly shows were all very good and there was a nice variety of comedy, music and dancing. The theme parties were a lot of fun - like the Latin night, the 80’s night, etc. I think they could carry the themes even further. The cruise director and his staff were great at their jobs and made a point to learn names and engage with guests. The biggest service issue was with the bar service. At the pool and mast bars they were simply overwhelmed every day and couldn’t offer the Celebrity level of service no matter how hard they tried. The same would happen at Reflections at night. In Rendezvous, the servers actually had terrible attitudes though. They would ignore us when we were the only people at the bar and even when we spoke to them. They would grab our seapass cards from our hands and roll their eyes. After a few tries, we simply avoided it for the rest of the trip and also missed out on some of the fun events we would have otherwise liked to attend. I would be remiss not to call out the excellent staff at Cafe Al Bacio. They were ALWAYS smiling even when they were slammed and ALWAYS pleasant. Read Less

I wanted a visit the southern islands so this is why we picked the Summit. Getting on and off the ship was very easy. Balcony cabin was normal but cabin steward was one of the best. In general the staff were very good as well. Went to a few shows and those were good. Food overall was good. Selection could have been better. The WIFI was terrible and a lot of people agreed. The premium package choices were great when you could get a drink. Bar service was terrible. Many times I just gave up with others. Staff at pool bars were not happy and looked over worked and short handed. We did have a little problem and Celebrity took care of it. Over all it was a good cruise. I would sail again only if they give it a full over haul. The summit is going into dry dock in 2019 which it needs. 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
