I chose this particular cruise because of the itinerary. Additionally, my mother had been on the Millennium years ago and really enjoyed it. Since the Summit is her sister ship, I thought it would be easier to navigate for my mother since she is 82 years old and we were in the aft which meant quite a bit of walking. My sister and daughter in law joined us and off we went. We went to San Juan several days prior to embarkation so we could enjoy the sights of the city for a day. We walked around Old San Juan, visited San Christobal and then took a taxi to Isla Verde. What a beautiful day! We ate a the Metropol and at Los Pinos. Both were beyond excellent in both food and service!
On embarkation day, we took a taxi to the port. Embarkation was simple and we were to our room in a matter of 30 minutes or so. Champagne was provided when we got on the ship. Our luggage was to our room within minutes. We met our room steward, Ronald, who was attentive and caring of our needs for the entire cruise.
We did not eat in the specialty restaurants, as the food in the main dining room was absolutely wonderful. Our waiters were Don and Agaton and my sommelier was I Wayan. We could not have had better service. I found that all of the bartenders I encountered were more than happy to take care of my needs. We did have a few meals in the buffet and they were wonderful as well. I would usually have the specialty omelette or one of the specialty benedicts at the poached egg station. Anything you want for breakfast is available. We also had a bite now and then at the Spa Cafe. The food there was delicious as well.
Our cabin was huge and the balcony was almost as big as the room. We were four adult women, family, in this one room. There was enough storage space for all of us. The room and the balcony were wonderful!
