Wonderful first cruise

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Took my first cruise on the Celebrity Summit to Bermuda on Sept.2-7, which was offered thru my local AAA. Bus transportation to and from the pier, a 4 hr. drive was included in the price of the cruise so it was perfect for me. My best friend went with me, her 2nd cruise, and we were on board within 15mins. of getting off the bus. Had a nice lunch at the Waterfall Cafe ,so much to choose from and everything I had , all thru the cruise was really good,and was in our inside stateroom around 2.I was surprised at how much room we had, more than enough for the 2 of us. Very nice.We spent the rest of the day exploring the ship, having dinner in the main dining room,we had any time dining,from 5:30 till 9. The food choices were wonderful and very good and service was excellent and quite fast, not to mention how beautiful the dining room was. We ate there 3 nites. We saw several of the shows and thought they were top notch entertainment. Also took the galley tour and that was very More interesting.

The crew of the Summit were all so very polite, happy, and pleasant and treated us like royalty, what a wonderful experience. Bermuda was very beautiful and easy to go out and about. We had 2 day transportation tickets and used buses and ferries to go anywhere we wanted.Disembarking was easy and only took maybe a hour by the time we were back on the bus headed for home. All in all I feel it was a wonderful cruise on a beautiful ship to a beautiful destination and I definitely would do it again the very same way.I also would recommend this cruise to other first timers as I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Cabin review: 09 Inside Stateroom 9

We had an inside stateroom on deck 3, forward of mid-ship. I felt it was more than enough room for 2 of us.Closet and drawer space was plenty as we didn't bring a huge amount of clothes with us. Was quiet and close to the stairs and elevators. The beds were very comfortable and decor was nice, also plenty of lights and a nite light in the bathroom. I think it was perfect, after all I didn't go on a cruise to stay in my room except to sleep and change clothes.

Port and Shore Excursions

Horseshoe Bay Beach

Went on our own, using public bus transportation ,bus #7 takes you from the dockyard all around the south end of the island ending in Hamilton,very easy and inexpensive and you get to interact with the local people.

St. George's Walking Tour

Upon arriving in St. Georges I went to the tourist information center and there was offered a walking tour. I found the tour very interesting and informative. It took 1 1/2 hrs. and ended at the world heritage center.I would definitely recommend taking this walking tour if you are interested in the history of St. Georges.
