No More Foie Gras on Celebrity!!! Hooray!

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
We love Celebrity Cruise Line and are even more thrilled that the line no longer tolerates torture and has discontinued serving foir gras. (Sorry Paul Motter! If you're not sure what is involved in producing foie gras please google it). We celebrated with a 5 course "Five Senses" dinner at THE NORMANDIE restaurant and now can look forward to dining at Murano which we refused to do in the past.
We loved the new Summit. It now has some of the HIP and MODERN touches of the Solstice class ships: Martini Bar, Cafe al Bacio, BLU Reataurant, Bistro on 5, Q Sine Specialty Restaurant. The rest of the ship is still gorgeous especially the Main dining room which has lovely seating and a beautiful alabaster ceiling design. The Theatre does not feel smaller than the Solstice class ships and has couch style seating with a fixed drink table. The Shows were better than Ive seen on Silhouette and solstice due to the use of two screens that are incorporated into the acts.
The Summit outdoor More pool area is nicer than Solstice. Better design and deeper 2nd pool. The Solarium is not nearly as stunning compared to the Solstice ships, but the actual pool is much better: Thalassotherapy pool and 4 large spigets that you can stand under for a neck and shoulder massage. The Persian Garden is also much nicer and much quieter.
The Summit is smaller than the Solstice Class but does not feel cramped. Our cruise was out of San Juan so the announcemnents were made in English and Spanish.
The highlights of the cruise were: Dinner at Normandie, Dinner at Blu, The Persian Garden, and flying in First/Business on Delta and American, which costs only a tad more than coach when flying into San Juan! Less
