We decided on Celebrity Summit because we wanted a higher end cruise with fewer children. We decided to go Suite Class and it was worth every penny. From the time we arrived at Port to the time we left, we were treated first class. We got to bypass all the lines and had a personal Butler and Concerige that were so awesome and helpful. Everyone on the ship knows what customer service is all about. We ate at Luminae since that was our Suite restaurant but if we wanted something not on the menu they prepared it for us. Their waiters are phenomal. Stay away from OceanView Cafe bc it's pure chaos and buffet type food. Our suite was beautiful and we enjoyed the balcony. The Butler would bring us coffee out on the balcony every morning and afternoon appetizers. It was nice having space. Our excursion to the Dolphin Cay was spectacular. Pay the additional money. You won't be disappointed. You are treated as VIP and again everyone on that ship was so helpful! Also being part of suite class meant we had a private tour of the Bridge and Helicopter Pad which is the foremost of the ship. This was our first cruise and we were blown away by the service. P.S. it was for my mom's birthday and our Butler Rikki and Consceige Adriana decorated the room, had sparkling cider, flowers and small cake for us when we came back on shore. Read Less

We were informed from a co-worker about Celebrity Cruises (which we'd never hear of) and after talking we decided to give it a go. The atmosphere was very relaxing, there were employees everywhere and would assist in any questions that we had. When we had an issue with the shower not getting hot water, our room attendant had maintenance there and they swapped out the shower faucet while we were out enjoying the sun. We had no clue that they were going to swap the faucet, just that they were going to check on it. It was very nice to come back to the room and suddenly have hot (not warm) water. My wife has Celiacs and the availability and marking of which foods were Gluten Free was exceptional. My wifes only complaint was that there weren't as many Gluten Free Pastries. Overall, as stated, it was very relaxing and were pampered at every turn. That's why we booked another cruise with Celebrity shortly after getting home. Read Less

Chose this as a short getaway break from the winter and cold. The Nassau stop was not important and we were only off the ship for a short time. Key West is always fun and we have friends there. Having been on the Infinity for a Panama cruise I already knew I would like the layout and size of Summit and I was not disappointed. Nice group of cruisers mostly our age and very few children on board made for a relaxing cruise and the ability to actually get near and in the pool. The food was quite good and we liked the spa food for lunch. The cafeteria never felt crazy crowded on this ship. There is a nice balance of size of public spaces vs. passegers. The fastest embarkation and debarkation we had ever experienced. I don’t know how they do it! Painless. The staff were attentive and our room was kept spotless. We had a forward cabin with the deeper balcony. It was smaller than I typically book but just right for this short cruise. The balcony is nice because there is shade and sun. My favorite spot is definitely the Sunset Bar before dinner. Never crowded and I think some people just never “find it.” The pool area is nicely laid out and I noticed very few chair hogs plus I did see the pool staff remove some towels that were placed and abandoned. The entertainment on this ship was especially good. All in all it was a very short cruise but one of my favorites! I am sure there will be another Celebtity cruise in my future. Read Less

Was a little hesitant to book this cruise based on some of the negative reviews regarding the condition of the ship. Well, don't worry. The ship is in great shape. Of course some of the furniture could be replaced. Specifically in the buffet. It looks like they didn't update that in the last drydock. But by no means is the ship looking old and dingy. The staff was by far some of the best that we have seen. Always upbeat and they always make a point to acknowledge guests in passing. Its a pleasure to see the crew take such initiative. Thats what sets Celebrity apart from the other mainstream lines. They are a step above. Constantly cleaning and making sure our needs are met. The food was really good. We had an aquaclass balcony but ate in the main dining room a few times and have no complaints. Good variety in the buffets and lots of made to order offerings. Read Less

Cruised on the Celebrity Summit 14 months ago. It was a very good experience. I do not know what has happened but, if this one was our first cruise. We would never have cruised again. Easter weekend, 2018, this was our 60th cruise. Not with Celebrity. We are priority and it might as well been our first boarding. Entered the building a few min. after 12 noon. No priority line when you walk in. You are with everyone. All cruisers. After the luggage scan. Back in line. They had priority and non-priority. You would never think that it was that way. Both had as many in line waiting. Once you finally were entered in the system. They had to go somewhere to get your boarding pass “Room key “It took almost an hour from entering the building to getting onboard. Mind you, this is a very small ship. 2100 guests. Two months ago getting on RCCL Harmony, it took no more than 20 min. tops. Very fast boarding and super fast debarkation. Not on this ship. We were told it was because the ship was docked at a location for a smaller ship. This is a small ship! Finally on board, it was now after 1:00PM, usually by this time all the state rooms are ready. We went to ours and got kicked out in a jiffy. All the plumbing was shut down. My wife needed it and needless to say she was very worried. We were on the bottom deck near the aft section. Come to find out, only one men’s room and one ladies room were working. Top deck, front of the ship. You can imagine the line. Plumbing was fixed 3 hrs. later. Just before getting underway. A sigh of relief from everyone. I will try to make the rest as short as possible. The shows were boring. Over and over the same thing both days. Very repetitious. Singers were average to poor. Dancers were almost in sync. Food, never hot, warm at the best. The ship was super ice cold. Your food got colder very fast. Many wearing jackets and sweaters. I asked why is it so cold. The response was. You are the first person ever to say that. (Ya Right) Did not do the dining rooms or specialty restaurants. Buffet deck 10, food every day was almost the exact same. I must say. The burgers were excellent and so were the fry’s. Far better than Guys’ on Carnival. Guess what I was eating. Pasta section was also great. Nassau to Key West. Never go to Key West as the last port. Once before we did it and it went fine. Customs in Key West. No Customs in Ft. Lauderdale. Not this time. Early morning in Key West we had to do Customs. If not a $3000.00 fine. Staying on or getting off. No matter. Guess what, debarkation in Ft. Lauderdale. Customs again. Both times all they did was look at your Passport picture and you and say Okay. Nothing else. What a joke. The ship itself was well kept, our state room was also. However the bed was like a rock. So if you want to sit and read. It was a great cruise for you. So glad we know what great cruises are like. Just not this one. Guess we are lucky to hit only one bad one out of sixty. Looking forward to the nest. Booked on the Celebrity EDGE for next year.

This was a special gift to myself for my 50th birthday -- an 80s-themed cruise on the Celebrity Summit. We had an absolutely fantastic time, and a lot of the credit goes to the incredible food, service and amenities on the Summit. From top-to-bottom, my wife and I literally had no complaints. The food -- from the specialty restaurants to the main dining room to the spa lunches -- were great. The service was top-notch, and we had no worries from Day 1. Our only complaint was the two of the ports were sub-par, and we could not get to their private island because the water was too choppy to tender boats. However, I don't blame the cruise line for these issues. I really can't thank the Celebrity team enough, as we are not "cruisers," but this experience sold us on taking another Celebrity cruise in the near future. This was just a really fun experience...and the ship was the perfect playground to enjoy ourselves. Read Less

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.

Our FIRST cruise. Wonderful cruise ship. Food was excellent. Suite was excellent. Chip our butler was amazing. Service was perfect. Ship does move...yes you can feel it back and forth at times. We had no problems with any seasickness. Shows were decent. Comedian had been on Beverly Hills 90210 and other tv shows. Sit in the front for interaction. There's plenty of seating. Suite guests get free alcohol and pop in one lounge without drink package. Big issue - our balcony sliding door popped loudly the second night, over and over again as the ship rocked. I really needed sleep and got very little. I hope this can be fixed. If it were a longer cruise, I don't know how I'd survive. Casino is small and has no Texas holdem poker table or room. But it does have craps! Pool was cold. Too cold to swim in. Art auction was for very expensive pieces only, like $20,000 pieces. Would love to see less-expensive Giclees in the hundreds. Do NOT bring a power strip. Your bag will get flagged and sent to security. You will have to check room phone messages to find this out or walk around wondering where your bag is as your butler will not know. We figured it out after a while. Muster Drill was extremely long, lame, and boring. Better organization might help, but Im guessing many cruisers were too lazy to get to where they should be, making those of us who followed rules wait. Many young female cruisers thought they were above the rules and continued to talk on cell phones during the drill. No surprise there. Nassau sucks. I don't know why so many people cruise on ships that go there. You won't go to the forts, they are in ghettos. We saw the courthouse. The library was closed. Junkanoo beach was run down, dirty, and small. We walked off the main drag on our own to find the Queen's Staircase, and feared for our lives. Two blocks off the main drag looked like a bomb went off, trash and debris everywhere, boarded up and open houses worse than Flint, Michigan, the area we are from. Two Bahamians were yelling at the manager in McDonalds. One was walking behind me yelling. Cruise ships should try other ports in the Bahamas, but business must be good there. I don't know why. Stay away from Nassau. Upon disembarkation, had to wait in a VERY LONG LINE. NO special line for suite guests to get off the boat. Customs was very backed up. Asked customs agent if suite guests had to wait in line, and they let us through the global express line. Worked out well as our flight was leaving and if we had had to wait in the customs line, we might have missed it. Make sure your return flight home is well after noon to be safe. Also on the last day - go ahead and sleep in and check out late. It's better than waiting in line Im sure. Read Less

We were very excited to go on our first Celebrity ship. As we celebrated our Anniversary this ship is most definitely relaxing. If you're looking for a party cruise, this is not it. As we walked into the ship we were welcomed with Champagne and Mimosas which was very nice. The ship is beautiful especially the Atrium. We had an inside cabin and it was very spacious and clean. The only problem we had in the cabin was when we got to Nassau, because we were on deck 2 we smelled the fumes when the ship docked? We've stayed on lower decks before and never smelled anything like that. The food was good in the buffet area, not too many options and the buffet closed at 9 pm. I get that the pizza area stayed opened late, however the pizza that was out was very cold. I liked the fact that we had an ice cream station that you can add toppings which was nice. Our first dinner we went to the main dining room and the food was not that great and the service was very slow and we sat next to some elderly ladies that complained and argued with the staff throughout our dinner and this made it very uncomfortable so we decided not to go back on the second night. Since the buffet didn't have too many options such as the desert area we only had cupcakes with all types of different frosting. We've never seen a buffet with only Cupcakes as a dessert option so on our second night we went to the coffee shop where we had plenty of desert options and it's FREE (the Raspberry cheesecake was very good). The roof top offered even more of a relaxing setting and we got to watch movies. The comedian was very good and I'm glad that we at least had that as entertainment option. The one show that they had on the first night was just okay. The Wi-Fi is very expensive and this was a 2 night cruise. This ship is also not that great for Kids. The arcade was very small with about 5 games and we didn't see too many kids on board anyway. I wouldn't go back on the Summit but I am looking forward to out next cruise with Celebrity. Read Less

I loved the Rock and Romance part of the cruise. As far as the ship goes, I was very disappointed. I usually love Celebrity ships. I had been on the Infinity (the sister ship of Summit) 15 years ago. Well, this boat surely looked 15 years old. Really needs updating. My cabin furniture was very worn. The bathroom really needed a redo- tile and sink and shower looked really worn. The food in the main dining room and the buffet were practically in-editble! What happened to the food??? Did they give us different food b/c we were a charter??? It made me have to spend extra $$ on the specialty restaurants. They were good! I loved QSine! That being said, I still had a great time with the entertainment and that is why I was on there. I would never choose to go on that ship again. I am booked to go on the Eclipse in July!! Read Less
