Celebrity Summit Cruise Review by encruiserpr

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2017
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Aqua Class

The ship is a Classic. Worth choosing. The 12-day itinerary was very comprehensive and had two days at sea, for resting. Port selection was very good and the switch from St Croix to Punta Cana was a very good choice. Shore tour offerings at Punta Cana must improve. The port hours were very good and the Aruba overnight was the best. Dining at the Blu restaurant was excellent with fast service. Food service at the buffet was excellent with many choices. Food was well prepared. Ice Cream service in Celebrity is better than Royal Caribbean and Princess. Gym opens earlier than Royal. Ship was spotless. Staff was very quick responding and correcting any issues. The ship hosted a separate Cruise Critic get-together, when all the ship master and senior officers were present and we had time for mingling.

The leading feature in the Summit is the Master, Capt Kate. - In my years of cruising, I have never seen a Master serving as the lead hostess as Capt. Kate did. She was very accessible, mingled with the guests, and made sure all guests were best serviced. She even greeted us out holding an umbrella for us when debarking under rain. I wish most cruise ship masters were as accessible, hospitality-minded and customer-oriented like her. She is the lady version of “Capt Stubbing” from the “Love Boat”.

Cabin Review

Aqua Class
Cabin A2 9133

Well maintained. The cabin in Deck 9 has an overhang from Deck 10, whick shields from excessive sunlight and rain in the balcony. For taking photos, you need to zoom a little to take the overhang out. The shower area is larger than other lines. Cabin srvice was outstanding!
