  3. Celebrity Summit
This was a special gift to myself for my 50th birthday -- an 80s-themed cruise on the Celebrity Summit. We had an absolutely fantastic time, and a lot of the credit goes to the incredible food, service and amenities on the Summit. From top-to-bottom, my wife and I literally had no complaints. The food -- from the specialty restaurants to the main dining room to the spa lunches -- were great. The service was top-notch, and we had no worries from Day 1. Our only complaint was the two of the ports were sub-par, and we could not get to their private island because the water was too choppy to tender boats. However, I don't blame the cruise line for these issues. I really can't thank the Celebrity team enough, as we are not "cruisers," but this experience sold us on taking another Celebrity cruise in the near future. This was just a really fun experience...and the ship was the perfect playground to enjoy ourselves.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 2
Cabin C2 8095
We didn't spend a lot of time in the cabin, but it was more than fine for the week and we loved the balcony as we could watch the sunrise every morning.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Bamboo Rafting
    The port was pretty and designed for cruise ships. The trip to the Brae River Rafting was fairly well-organized and a fun adventure. Sure, it's a touristy thing to do...but so what? We enjoyed the romantic trip down the river, sharing laughs along the way.

  • Atlantis Resort
    I'd skip the unsteady, tiny ferry boat and take a cab next time I go to the Atlantis, but the hotel complex was beautiful, and the day pass -- which allowed us to go to their beach -- was well worth the money spent.

  • Ocho Rios
    Unless you are taking an official excursion with the cruise line, this was not a great experience. It didn't seen the port was well-organized to handle the ships coming in, and there was not enough to see and do nearby.
