Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C

We usually venture farther afield, but chose this cruise for several reasons - a very high percentage of adults, recently upgraded ship, good friends were going, and we had never done a Celebrity cruise and wanted to find out if it's a cruise line we would use again

This Caribbean cruise won't be our last. We surprised ourselves by loving the whole experience, especially the beautiful waters and charming ports. The Summit docked for a crazy amount of time at St. John’s, Antigua - an appealing port with way too many people trying to sell stuff. Next time we won't even bother going ashore there. We loved all the other stops. MUST DO: Cuban cigar shopping at La Casa Del Habano in Basseterre, St. Kitts. Sit on their balcony, enjoy a balmy breeze, and watch the world go by as you drink FABULOUS coconut mojitos while the other half roams the humidor. What could be bad?

My partner snorkled in Bermuda - went on a high priced inflatable boat escapade to a reef. The currents were strong, there were no fish, and a woman got swept out and almost drowned. Our friends went on the shipwreck snorkeling trip and had a fantastic experience.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C

Cabin 2C

This cabin is forward on deck 7 just off the elevators in 7072. Never heard annoying noise and the convenience was great. The recent refurbishment meant our cabin felt up-to-date and clean. The showers were always hot, The bathroom was immaculately cleaned twice daily and virtually every time we returned from whatever we were doing, our room had been made up. The housekeeping was flawless.

Port Reviews

San Juan

The old town area of San Juan is really charming, except for the homeless junkies spitting on every surface. There is a visible police presence so the place feel reasonably safe for tourists. Watch out for nutcase taxi drivers if you get one at the airport - ours drove us at over 80 mph. We were thrown all over the cab. He kept offering us pharmaceuticals "anything you want". He wanted to store our luggage at his house - not kidding. We convinced him to stop to check on something, got out, paid him enough cash to shut him up and took our luggage.

The food is very inexpensive - we had two very good coffees and two massive breakfast sandwiches for US $11 total.

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

Clean, fun, beautiful, historic and we had a lovely April morning Cuban cigar shopping at La Casa Del Habano in Basseterre. Sit on their balcony, enjoy a balmy breeze, and watch the world go by as you drink FABULOUS coconut mojitos while the other half roams the humidor. What could be bad?
