First let me start out saying we have never cruised before-- So this was all new to us! We flew into Seattle and stayed at the Hampton Inn,Tukwila (they had free shuttle and breakfast) Wonderful hotel- great beds and a budget price! We took a shuttle down to the Amtrak (15 minutes away)--Because of the advice we received on this board we were first to arrive at the Amtrak station and got the seats of our choice-- This is a wonderful way to start out your vacation-- very relaxing--narrative and the views are to die for! A quick cab ride brought us to the ship-- easy to get through security and onto the ship-- a lunch buffet was waiting for us as they readied the rooms. We spent the extra to get concierge class-- Well worth it! we were pampered by the staff-- the room was spacious (for a ship!) lots of storage in the room-- and We spent so much of our time on the veranda that it was like a second room! We found the Summit to be a beautiful home away from home--everything sparkled and truly I can say that I never saw any crew member without a smile on their face!! We were greeted by name everywhere we went and were only met with kindness everywhere on the ship. We found the passengers on the Summit to be a nice mix of middle age to retirees-- not alot of younger couples. I think this is due to the lack of adventuresome activities! which was fine with us-- As I mentioned we spent most of our time on the veranda looking at the views. We did go to the shows at night-- nice variety-- from comedians, to musicians to musicals-- We had breakfast in the room almost everyday! gotta love room service-- and lunch was split between the main dining room and the grill! Dinner was in the main dining room-- we had early seating but if I were to do it again I would choose late seating-- its always light in alaska so our timing was always off! Early seating had us rushing to dinner each night after a day of excursions. Later would have allowed us to linger in the room or the bar--- All and all I would highly recommend the Summit-- especially to ALASKA!! You won't find better service or a more appointed ship anywhere!
