  3. Celebrity Summit
Pre-cruise: We stayed two nights at the Embassy Suites, San Juan Hotel & Casino. We were very pleased with our stay at the hotel. The pool is beautiful. The free breakfast was ok, and we enjoyed the free “happy hour” in the evening. Embarkation: Went very smoothly. The Ship: We found that the refurbishment has been very successful. Among other things, we liked the lighter colors of both the Rendezvous Lounge and the Main Dining Room. But unfortunately, we were not satisfied with the comfort to sit in the sofas in the Rendezvous. We liked the new design and furnishing of the Oceanview Cafè, but hink the outdoor section of the Cafè/The Sunset Bar should have more shade for the sun. Moreover: We appreciated that we now could put our carry on baggage in the cabin once we got on board, before the cleaning was finished, and before we went to lunch. We were pleased that the indoor Thalassotherapy Pool was kept after the refurbishment. . Cabin info: We had two Concierge balcony cabins on deck 8. We think Celebrity have done a great job with the total renovation of the cabins. And we were really impressed with the new bathroom. We had two different cabin attendants for our two cabins. The attendant for cabin no. 8150 did an ok job regarding the cleaning of the cabin. But we had to ask him for the Concierge bottle of sparkling wine, and we were not presented with the pillow menu. Dining: We had the second seating on deck 5 in the MDR. We four family members were mostly pleased with the quality of the food we selected, and we were all very satisfied with the service we received on our table no. 506 from Waiter, Moe, Assistant Waiter, Restiari and the Sommelier, Josip! The waitress who was responsible for bottled water, soft drinks, beer and drinks in our section of the MDR, also did a very good job! The maître was very visible. We had all our breakfasts in the Oceanview Café, and also lunches, if we got back on time, after being ashore. In contrast to our cruise with Constellation last fall, we had this time no difficulties in finding an unoccupied table. We were pleased with the food selection. But unfortunately, we were not satisfied with the clearing of tables. Especially clearing of tables in the outside part of the Oceanview, was very slow. In our opinion, it was due to poor management in the Café. We enjoyed Café al Bacio and its wide menu of coffee and teas, and with its nice waiter service. Bars: The service in the bars were mostly good. Our favorite hang-out bar/lounge, was also on this cruise the Rendezvous. Entertainment: With the exception of the group, Up Town, who performed in the Theater with Motown Music, and what we think in an excellent way – we found the two production shows to be quite ordinary. Unfortunately, we think some of the live music in the Rendezvous, was too noisy. The Captain’s Club Society: We are Elite Members, but we never attended the Elite Cocktail Hour, so we can't give any comment on that event. The Voyage: The 5 ports of call were all great. Internet: We were very dissatisfied with internet on board! Especially in the morning and evening the speed was very slow! We will take the opportunity to tell that we found the Concierge, Jess Dhokar, to be very friendly. And she did an excellent job, not least with the assistance we received from her concerning change of cabin, after one of our two cabins got a water leak from the air conditioning system. The salesman in the Apple Store was both very friendly and skilled. We also think the Cruise Director did a good job. Disembarkation: Fast Overall: Our family was very pleased with this cruise on the newly refurbished Summit, and with a friendly crew.
