Celebrity Summit Cruise Review by PrincessP9
- Sail Date: July 2016
- Destination: Bermuda
- Cabin Type: Concierge Class 2
I was invited on this cruise with a co-worker, so I could not say no. Bermuda has always been a destination I've wanted to go to and it did not disappoint. The port at Cape Liberty was easy to get to and very well organized. You drive up, porter takes your bags, you pull up to the indoor parking garage and voila! You go up an escalator to check in - all very quick and easy. The people on the ship were very friendly and aim to please. Our cabin attendant, Maria, was especially mindful of every request we made. (Concierge Class cabin). The casino manager, Craig, and slots manager, Adam were so outgoing and friendly - they joined me for my golf game, which I was initially going alone. They made my week! The beaches and attractions were easy to get to by ferry & bus. Wednesday night they have "Harbour Nights" in Hamilton. They close the main street and have dancing and street vendors out. Probably a good time to get some souvenirs. Horseshoe Bay Beach is a must! People say it's too crowded, but we discovered that the umbrella and chair rentals stopped at the lifeguard station, so we just laid our towels on the other side which was less populated. It wasn't too bad a walk to go check out Jobsons Cove and Warwick Long Bay as well. Beware that the under tow at Warwick is very strong and almost caused my friend to drown! Two helpful men along the beach had to help her out of the water. Crystal & Fantasy caves are very interesting to see, but pricey ($22 for 1 cave/$30 for 2) and the tour is very short. Gibb's Lighthouse is a bit of a hike up a hill then 187 steps to the top, so make sure you have proper footwear and energy to do this. The view from the lighthouse is phenomenal. We also took the ferry to St. Georges. Fort St. Catherine is there which we visited with a very handsome and super friendly shuttle driver, Patrick. We went on to Tobacco Bay beach after that. This is the place to bring kids. Super safe and protected from the large waves. Great music, restaurant, rentals and wifi. We also stopped at the Frog & Onion Pub at the Dockyard which had great snacks, much cheaper drinks than the ship and again free wifi. I bought 2 Bermuda Rum Cakes which are famous. They are expensive, but travel well (as we drove from Cape Liberty to Toronto) and they are delicious! Overall the ship and the island were a very memorable experience for me.
PrincessP9’s Full Rating Summary
Cabin had all the amenities you would need, plus more. The service was excellent. No obstructed views. Got a great video leaving the harbour in NYC and saw the Statue of Liberty perfectly from our balcony.
