This was our first time on Celebrity. The Bermuda destination, not having to fly, perfect time of year and price were all a plus in making our decision to book this cruise and we were not disappointed!! Leaving and returning from Bayonne was easy, check in and out was smooth, no issues. Staff was very accommodating from our steward, to waiters,bartenders and general all around crew, they always had a happy greeting. Good for customer service! Yes, she is an older boat but we found no fault in her cleanliness, maintenance and maybe lack of glitz, that is so appealing to others. Food was varied and plentiful both at buffet and main dining room. Patrick, the cruise director, kept everyone busy with many activities that you could join or not. We enjoyed the comedians Michael Wilson and Carl Banks. The Frankie Valli “December 63” tribute group had everyone singing and using happy feet to keep up with the beat! Royal dockyards has changed dramatically since our visit in the early 80’s. Bermuda tourism did a grand job in transforming this area into a pleasant shopping and historical site. It’s very clean, civilized, locals are helpful ,friendly and there is easy access to the Hamilton and St George Ferries.We did both and enjoyed the ride and time off in these lovely areas. Didn’t visit any beaches, felt they would be too crowded with both NCL and Celebrity in port..next time, we will return. The only excursion we tried to book was a sunset catamaran ride but it was sold out, book it early or before you leave, heard it was nice! We did everything else on our own. Our interior room was comfortable and clean. Browsed through the many ship stores but shopping was not essential for us. Think about purchasing a beverage package - just water, beer and wine really add up! As almost the last cruise before school reopening in our area, there were quite a few families aboard. It was delightful to see them all having such a great time. The rest of us 70+ ers rounded out group and we were happy as well. Just do it!!!! Read Less

I chose this cruise mainly because I have sailed with the company before but that was several years ago, so I wanted to see how the company has changed over the years. Since my last cruise 10+ years ago with the company, the company (Celebrity) is still very good but it has gone slightly downhill since then. The prizes for contests aren't the same, and there was no grand buffet or even an ice sculpture in sight. The company is going for "modern elegance" but they don't even have the towel animals that a lot of people (myself included) love. Overall though, I loved the cruise. I had cruised with Carnival last year, and I had a terrible experience with them. Carnival was very disorganized and the ship could have used some refurbishing. This was not the case with The Summit, which was well-maintained (and is getting a "mani-pedi" when it goes into dry dock next year!). Celebrity was also very organized with everything from embarkation to disembarkation! Read Less

My sister and I traveled with our mother, who uses a specialized wheelchair full-time. We booked this cruise less than 1 month prior to sailing when a HC cabin suddenly become available. Our drive to the port was just over an hour in Sunday morning traffic (approximately 65 miles). Embarkation was smooth & very fast and we had lunch at Sushi on 5 in order to avoid crowds at the buffet. The rooms were available at the expected time and we were pleasantly surprised by its size - by far the largest wheelchair accessible cabin we have ever booked. It is all the way forward and thus, not an ideal location for those prone to motion sickness (me) but we knew that when we booked it. Fortunately, it was only an issue on the first night. Our cabin steward was efficient and we only had to make our requests once (extra hangers, ice every evening, extra towels). No towel animals (for those of you like this), but we did not miss them. We had Select Dining and pre-cruise had made 6:30 reservations for every evening. The first night was quite chaotic with long lines outside the dining room regardless of whether or not you had a reservation, and we were not seated until 7:30. Our waiter (Edic) and assistant waiter (Kelvin) were superb and very attentive. We did not have to wait on any of the subsequent 4 evenings. We ate lunch in the dining room twice and other days used the buffet (the stir fry station was our favorite), the poolside grill, or AquaSpa Cafe. Food is very subjective and I will not make any specific comments, but we always found something to eat which satisfied us. We had room service breakfast once and it arrived at the expected time and our scrambled eggs were warm. Entertainment is also subjective and we were not able to make it to all the shows. We did enjoy December 63 (2 shows), the comedian Michael Wilson, the tribute to Billy Joel & Elton John with the Celebrity Orchestra and pianist Peter Rossetti. We participated in a few trivia sessions and the karaoke finale was enjoyable. There was one wheelchair accessible excursion offered (a 5-hr tour of the east and west sides which was not available on the website pre-cruise). It was a very good tour with an excellent guide, and we were able to enjoy a fish sandwich on raisin toast in St. George. We spent a lot of time in the Solarium and made a brief visit to the Rooftop Terrace on the last sea day. We were able to go just about everywhere with the wheelchair although some of the thresholds are high (especially Deck 11 forward and the doors to the promenade on Deck 4). Service throughout the ship was excellent. Cannot comment on the internet speeds as we always place our phones in the safe as soon as we enter the cabin. We did not even use our free 90-minute internet perk (yay!!). Disembarkation was also quick & smooth. It was a wonderful, relaxing week. Needless to say, we booked a cabin for next August and look forward to seeing the revamped/refreshed Summit. Read Less
