Relaxing Summit

Sail Date: June 2013
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
I traveled with my mother (80) Sister (61) and me (58). We had a balcony cabin and premiem beverage package. We really liked the ship. Big enough but not huge. The Norwegian Breakaway was on the same itinerary, and the taxi drivers in Bermuda were telling us that they were hearing mixed reviews from the passengers on the Breakaway. The Summit was a lovely ship. Yes, some of the things I have read were true - tile in shower needs re -grouting. It is not a new ship, but it certainly does not look worn.

There was a great variety in terms of food and places to eat. We had the late seating, and one night we asked to go to the early seating. We were told to come at 6:30 and if there were free tables we would be seated. We were, without problem.

I am a foodie. I like the food, but have certainly had better food at some restaurants. Qsine was very fun and well worth it. So was Normandie, but Normandie is fancier -- lots of table side prep, etc. Like a fine French More restaurant. Serves a cheese course before dessert, etc. Children would be better off at Qsine than Normandie.

We had room service coffee and rolls every day. Was delivered promptly. Coffee was not piping hot, but drinkable. We did write in some items that were not on the room service menu, such as fresh fruit, and it was delivered, no extra charge.

With three in the room it was tight. We did bring an over-the-door shoe bag for all our toiletries and it was a God send. The upholstered chair folded out into a twin bed each night. With that open, there was zero floor space, so as soon as we woke up, we folded it back into a chair.

Entertainment was fantastic. We like Broadway musicals, which was the type of entertainment we had most nights. If you want to do specialty dining and go to the show (7 PM and 9 PM) you need to make your reservation for your meal accordingly (e.g. 6-6:30 or 8:30.)

We had the classic beverage package at first, and found the wines to be tasteless, so we upgraded to premium.

Cabin review: 2B8159 Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2B

Upholstered chair folded out into a twin bed. With bed open, there was virtually no floor space. Electrical outlet only on vanity, not in bathroom. Balcony had two chairs and one table. Good view.
