Our very first cruise, we are in our late 60's. Four of us booked the Rock N Romance cruise that sailed from March 3-8. The ship was wonderful. The attentive staff was great. We never had any situations with our room or the service. Because we all love music it was the perfect first time cruise. Styx were fabulous, Air Supply superb, The Guess Who put on a great show. I loved the Cher show.....she did a great job. All the bands on the ship were great!! The Queen Review at night was fun!!! He had Freddie down to a T. There was always something going on to do or see or listen to. The band members were all over the ship and very accessible! We were 12 inches from Michael McDonald. He was so gracious and signed my husband's drum head. We ate twice near the bass player from The Guess Who. Everyone on board was very polite, professional and very helpful. The food was good, lots of it and a good variety. They would bring you a dish that they thought you should taste because it was so good. By the second day they knew what you drank!!! Happy Happy wait staff. Considering they leave their families behind for 6 - 8 months to come and work on the ship. Think about leaving your family for months just to go to work and service others. Pretty impressive and the all had great personalities!! You know you booked the right cruise when you have a crisis!! A MEDICAL CRISIS!! My husband got very ill ( from a premedical condition) and the medical staff on board were great!!! they flew into action, made sure he was well taken care of AND made sure I was taken care of Too! When we had to disembark the ship to be taken to the hospital in the Grand Cayman Islands, we left with written instructions on who to call and their names and titles. They sent staff to our room to help our friends pack our stuff so we could take our belongings with us. They even made sure we had food to eat. We were taken by tender boat to the dock and all the way my husband had a lovely nurse Donna at his side. All this time I was wearing a black beaded bracelet given to me by Tasso, the Safety Captain on the ship. He took it off and said to me "my grandmother gave this to me. She got it in church. Wear it and know that God will be with you." As I was crying I thanked him. How thoughtful and caring. The Medical staff on the Summit is fabulous! The doctor knew just what to do and what to say to help us feel safe and secure. When we were taken to the Health City Facility, a 30 minute ambulance ride, I was told that thank goodness we were on a Celebrity cruise. They are wonderful and are very good at handling medical emergencies. I agreed. We had the best of care from the most caring staff of doctors, nurses and cruise line staff. They even made sure we got a message back to our friends before we left the ship. Although our cruise was cut short by 2 days due to the emergency, I am so grateful we were on a Celebrity Ship. They know how to treat there customers. I have been in contact with customer service to review charges and medical services. Thank God I took out the medical insurance and GEO Blue international travel insurance. Don't leave home without it!! We will go again because I know the ropes now and have confidence in the entire staff of Celebrity!

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 1
Cabin C1 9160
Our cabin faced the back of the ship!! We loved it. Always had the view of the wake of the ship and a breath taking view of the sea and all the ships. The cabin was a good size, very clean and comfortable. The veranda was huge!!!! I was very impressed with the cabin and the little snacks we had everyday. The service was wonderful.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Beach
    We went on the Bamboo Beach club VIP tour. Worth every penny! had lots of great food and lobster on the beach. Our tour guide was wonderful. Gave us lots of information about Jamaica. We were well taken care of, the food and drinks just kept coming.

    don't waste your time or your money. Very sad. The tour guide told us nothing about the island. Just about "here the condos are 1 million dollars, here is our subway, on my right more expensive condos. here is KFC and look at the chickens at the KFC!" This entire tour SUCKED!! even the town of Hell was Hell. nothing great to see or do. Stopped at 7 mile beach.....we've got better beaches on Lake Michigan. Stay around the port if you get off the ship and walk around there. This port had nothing to offer and we heard horror stories about other excursions as well. They need to work on these.
