Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Penthouse Suite
Traveled with children

Have sailed Summit several times before (as well as other ships in Celebrity fleet, and also in RC and Disney ones). Celebrity continues to draw us to her because of the emphasis on quality people, places and experiences. It is interesting to watch the progression of cruising, and this particular line, over time... what remains the same is the emphasis on strong service, cleanliness, and overall classic elegance.

Ship: post-Revolution it has a particular design aesthetic now... perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but certainly not bold enough to be objectionable or in any way distasteful. We miss the wood paneling of Michael's Pub (now the more glossy-white Retreat Lounge), and miss the piano in our room (now there is a modern Aarnio-style "ball" chair), but, overall, the design changes are more subtle, promoting light and a general refresh in places like the Casino.

Our cabin, Penthouse 6148, was divine. For those who don't know, it is this class of ship on Celebrity - the M-class - that has the penthouse of all penthouses, with a glorious wrap-around deck (we had seating for ~28 persons on the deck), amazing square footage and storage throughout the cabin, and a very useful butler's pantry with full-size fridge. Closets were everywhere and the suite is tastefully and comfortably appointed.

Penthouse Suite

Our cabin, Penthouse 6148, was divine. For those who don't know, it is this class of ship on Celebrity - the M-class - that has the penthouse of all penthouses, with a glorious wrap-around deck (we had seating for ~28 persons on the deck), amazing square footage and storage throughout the cabin, and a very useful butler's pantry with full-size fridge. Closets were everywhere and the suite is tastefully and comfortably appointed.

The M-class Penthouse Suite is a spoiler. Yes, it is worth it. We appreciate the size and layout of this class of ship, and that wrap-around stateroom, and the exceptional services and "perks" that come with it, are outstanding. Unlimited laundry, premium bev packages for all, unlimited internet, unlimited specialty dining, and much more. It makes the vacation a true vacation.

Port Reviews

Curacao

Holland American ship got the preferred docking location... our ship was parked a bit more out of the way. Still, a beautiful stop. One of the best in the Caribbean.

Aruba

Maybe overrated as a stop? Maybe just not our cup of tea.
