We chose this cruise as it was good value for money with onboard spend and free classic drinks package. Also it started from Puerto Rico, which we had not been to before, as well as a good itinerary. The ship docked across the bay from Old SanJuan where our hotel was so we needed a taxi to the ship. There was a problem with the ships propulsion (again) which meant it got underway over 24 hours late and resulted in losing out on a day in Aruba. For this we were awarded a measles $100 each. We had a consierge cabin near the back which was very nice with a great balcony ensuring plenty of shade. It was also on deck 9 just below the ocean view cafe and handy for the lifts. This gave us free canapés every day which were virtually inedible so we asked them to stop sending them or give us fruit. This never happened and they turned up religiously every day. The cabin steward Pelas was very helpful and efficient. The food in the Oceanview cafe was of good quality but lacking in seafood. The evening meals again were good in quality but the choice not varied enough. There was a distinct lack of seafood on offer except for the lobster night. We tried quisine but were not impressed and did not feel it was worth paying the extra. The staff were excellent over all the ship and could not be faulted. We were disappointed with the onboard entertainment especially the ships own dancers and singers. The Summit orchestra were good as were some of the guest acts. Overall there was not a lot going on. We enjoyed the cruise but the ship is tired and will benefit from it’s coming refurb. We would consider the Summit again if the itinerary is right
