We chose royal suite 6137 with connecting concierge class 6135 for an important reason. Celebrity has a very old & little known rule — a Connecting cabin to a royal or penthouse suite has the same privileges. This means if you are sailing with in-laws (as we were) they are entitled to the same premium beverage package and unlimited speciality dining that we were. This includes dining in Luminae — the suite only restaurant. This includes all speciality restaurants.
Upon arrival(11:30) our group of 4 went to the suite check-in. Check-in took 10 minutes tops for all of us. Then almost immediately, we were escorted by a concierge directly to Michael’s Club. We were then greeted by the suite concierge (12:15). We were advised that our rooms would not be ready until 1:00. We went to Luminae for lunch. After lunch (2:00) we went directly to the rooms. We were greeted by Peter the Butler and Mevin the stateroom attendant.
Before arriving on the ship, the shoreside concierge had been in contact to learn all of our preferences... Sugar free Red Bull, Vitamin Water, Coors Lite all in the mini-fridge. Grey Goose and Patron Tequila on the in-room bar set-up. Everything was exactly as we had requested. All of this is provided in the royal suites and higher at no additional cost.
The cruise itself, we could care less where the boat goes. The main point of going for us is: food, drink, service, casino, and shows.
We did go to most of the shows. A- average rating.
Casino. A rating. (Mother-in-law did win slot tournament)
Tuscan Grille. A+ rating (expected) GO!
Qsine. A+ rating (unexpected) if you had not planned on going, GO!
Luminae. A+ rating (expected)
Siraz is the best sommier. Dominic is the best waiter.
This is the 4th time I’ve been on the Summit. It’s a great ship. Not to big, not to small. It’s probably going to be retired in about 5 years. Spend time with your family on this ship in suite accommodations. You will not be disappointed.
Disembarkation day —
We went to Luminae (7:30) for breakfast. Dominic took perfect care of us. We then made our way to Michael’s Club for the final time. After having one last coffee, the concierge escorted the four of us off the ship directly to our luggage. (Use Suite luggage tags for both royal suite and concierge room)
You then see the long line that is immigration/customs. Ugh, but have no fear.
The concierge escorted us to the suite line.
(To which we heard someone standing in line say “there go the suites.”)
It took us 3 minutes to get through where it takes the regular cabins 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Then off to FLL and home.
Next cruise booked on Celebrity Edge January 6th, 2019.
One drawer was not functioning, but overall A.
