Celebrity Summit Cruise Review by Dsmorag

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2011
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean

First...the Celebrity website is terrible! I cannot understand why...the Royal Caribbean website is fantastic, and you would think that they would be somewhat similar...but they are as different as night and day.Second...if you are leaving and coming back to San Juan...use the cabs if there are more than two people in your group. It is faster, easier and cheaper.Four out of the five islands were wonderful. And the fifth (Tobago) was not bad.This cruise line is not for kids. There were almost none on the ship! We traveled with out 22 and 25 year old daughters, and they loved it. The food was very good, and the service throughout the trip was great. The cruise director was the best we ever encountered.I read a number of reviews before I went (but after I booked the trip)...one thing I learned for certain, for the islands we visited, it is extremely easy and cheap to do whatever excursion you want to do at the dock. DO NOT go through the cruise ship. The people on the islands were universally friendly, easy to understand, and helpful.My only complaint, other than the website, was that security getting on the boat at each and every port was a little ridiculous. Sometimes long lines...and a lot of clueless passengers.

Cabin Review

Cabin CC 9089

Nice, quiet and near the top so easy to get to restaurant and pools on top deck.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

St. Croix

Nice island...interesting. Did a snorkel trip to Buck Island. Not the best snorkeling, but fun.

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

They have a cross island train...something pretty unique in the Caribbean. Kids had a lot of fun...drinks included!

Dominica

Really liked the people and the island. Did a swim to a waterfall that was VERY strenuous...had to paddle AGAINST a strong current in deep water to get to the falls. Not recommended for those that cannot swim well. But then went to hot pools for a good soak...THAT was wonderful. Did some self guided snorkeling off Champagne Reef...beautiful. Great island.

Grenada

A lot like Dominica...great people...pretty island. Did a tour of forts, spice plantation, waterfalls.
