I chose Celebrity because I had taken the Millenium in Alaska 4 years ago and the experiences was over the top. I love cruising, as it's the only vacation where Mom doesn't have to lift a finger! I invited 3 of my gal relatives (and one who had never cruised before.) I guess the build up in my mind raised my expectations too high. I SO wanted my three sisters/cousins to become as enthused about cruising as I am! (Selfishly.)
The new refurbish on Summit is terrific. Decor restful and tasteful (not garish Las Vegas!) We had a Veranda room and our beds were divine and we slept very well. The bathroom was super clean and outfitted with the latest bath decor. We took coffee on the veranda each morning and G&Ts each night! A small thing, but our favorite part of the day. I won't ever cruise without a veranda.
We did a SPA package which allowed us to eat at Blu, which we loved and did about half the time. It also lets you use all the spa amenities, which was really nice. Only annoyance was that not one of our special spa products had a pump that worked. We had to unscrew the lids and dump out the soap, lotion, etc. Given that the Spa package is kind of a 'thing' this was odd. Odder still was that our Steward never did replace the products with pump bottles that worked even though it was obvious (because we left all the pumps sitting out.)
