Holiday Cruise - Southern Caribbean
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
We thought the service was top-notch -- can't say enough about the professionalism and quality of the crew. Overall, the food was exceedingly good, often outstanding. The one exception would be the steaks in the main dining room, which I would rate as fair to good. Everything else we ate was More great. We loved our tablemates, and found our dining room staff top-notch. We did not dine in the Normandie -- one of the couples at our table did, and said the service was great but the food was not really any better than in the main dining room. The entertainment was also outstanding.
We did have rain -- so much so that we had to stay on the ship in St. Lucia :-(, and a good bit of rain in both Grenada and Barbados. I took a Southern Caribbean cruise with Royal Caribbean in January 2010, and the weather was better. The rainy season is supposed to end in November, but I guess this year it dragged on longer. One of our favorite stops was Antigua (again) where we booked a snorkeling and lobster lunch with Creole Cruises (amazing).
Overall, we loved the Summit and were very impressed with Celebrity. I'm already looking at cruises again. I will say the one thing we missed is that there were no towel animals -- but since my daughter did not come with us this time, it was not an issue. Less
Cabin review: 087000 Ocean View 8
Room 7000 was an Oceanview in front of the ship, and due to its location, seemed larger than the standard OV rooms. Bonus -- very quiet since it was out of the traffic path. We had no problem with any motion from the position of the cabin.Read All Ocean View 8 (08) Reviews >>
