We had an excellent time. Staff was very attentive, meals were super except for the veal cutlet the last night which was tough with too much breading. Select dining worked extremely well and we met some very nice people as a result.

Enjoyed our second cruise on this ship. Just big enough and the itinerary was perfect for our family--just the right mix of sea and shore time (Bermuda). The service was excellent and the food good and because the weather was lovely we enjoyed the on-deck activities. A very pleasant experience !

First time with celebrity, very disappointed. Usually cruise with Holland American. Their speciality restaurant was really really a dispointment. From knowledge, to serves, to extra cost, to food, think that covers most of it. Our room service was great. Alway cleaned up and fresh at least two times a day if not more.

Reviewed on: 26 Aug 2014

Overall I found the cruise to meet my expectations. This was the first time I had a suite, so some things were a little different. I thought that my luggage should have been delivered a little sooner than it was, didn't come until 8pm. I choose to eat meals in the suite and that seemed to be a hassle. The Michael's lounge is a nice idea. I can't give the overall rating for food a high mark. I have sailed on the Summit before. The shows and entertainment didn't appear to be as good as they were before. The stateroom TV channels were not the best, signal loss, and programming. I am going to sail on the Eclipse in March so I can see if I have been too harsh in my judgement of the Summit.

We sailed over the week of New Years - our itinerary was so special and memorable. Over the course of 7 nights, we sailed to Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten and St. Thomas. It was a beautiful ship, with excellent food and great service. We were not traveling with children, so it was a nice ship for adults. I would not say it was particularly kid friendly in comparison to other ships that offer a lot more excitement, but it was the right ship for us on this vacation! We had a spectacular journey.

the shows were excellent but for people expecting kid glove treatment even at a royal suite level...forget it. we never met the captain or crew. there was no captain's dinner or special treatment. our room was lovely (2 rooms). The on shore concierge Katie never returned email requests, and the on board concierge never resolved a credit issue. Our travel agent had to resolve it. Then, the butler whom we gave a big tip to, failed to help us on the last day to pack up wine/champagne gifts from Celebrity, thereby losing all. If all you want to do is read a book, then this is the place to do it. No one helps you as a new cruiser. The high end restaurants are excellent but no sense of community once there. hard to meet and socialize. One must study the schedule every day to know where evens are. tours were not great in Bermuda and headed up by generally impoverished locals. Gym was adequate but not impressive. Spa had nice choices - not really canyon ranch level and expensive.

Our suite room was adequate albeit the ship had larger rooms. The ammenities like the lounge and private dining room staffed with amazing people really made the difference for us. We found the menus ok, not great . Not a big variety. The individual shows were interesting and unusual. The celebrity shows were well rehursed but not very well done . We went on the ship for the "America's Cup" and that was handled very poorly. Excursions were sold out months ago, almost no coverage while sailing except a few lectures . Never having been on celebrity before ,I was surprised that days at sea didn't have any other lectures or activities . We have been spoiled ,at our age by our many trips on Holland America. ,smaller ships, fewer people, better food, better lectures and a much larger room and balcony .

Celebrity Summit was a nice ship, updated with great decor and colors. Not a carnival ride or cartoon character in sight. We had heard that the pool music and announcements were loud and numerous, true. The personnel on board were just wonderful, could not do enough for us. singing waiter Donavan was a bright spot each morning. At the back of the food room they had just started an area where you could choose a steak, chops, chicken or fish from a market like display and they would grill it to your request while you waited. Just a great way to do food individually so don't tell anyone. We had a interesting choice of ports with Newport and Boston as well as 3 days in Bermuda, other ships there were shorter and only included Bermuda. Just wish we could have gone a few weeks sooner to view the America's Cup races off the stern. As it was, breakfast on the stern saw views of Oracle and Artemis boats lying in their yards waiting shipment home.

Captain Alex and his crew were fantastic. This was our second Celebrity Cruise. Ronald, our cabin steward, took extremely good care of us. He provided us with bags of ice to take to the beach to setting up a small cocktail party for our group of 12 on our final day at sea. Our waiters, Martin and Walter, were amazing. We were a large, sometimes very loud, group of 12. They always had a smile on their face and accommodated all our requests. From the bar staff to the gentlemen who passed us a cool towel on and off the ship, we loved every moment. I was extremely impressed with how personable Captain Alex was. He always had a joke for us every morning and participated in the staff/ guest pool volleyball game. What impressed me the most was that he was at the gangway to say goodbye to all his guests.

We enjoyed most of our cruise even though the ship is in need of refurbishing. Some of the carpeting was frayed and many of the chairs in the lounges needed reupholstering. However, the ship was always clean and neat. The food in the main dining room was not up to par in our opinion. Some of the entrees were excellent but many of them were just ok. We have been on the Equinox and the Solstice previously and thought the food was much better on both of those ships in the main dining room. The food at the buffet was very good. Captain Kate was very personable and we enjoyed her daily announcements. She personally said good bye to us as we left the ship. We LOVE Alejandro, the cruise director, and have sailed with him once previously. He could be a great stand-up commedien. In the future we would look for cruises on some of Celebrity's newer ships.

Disappointing return

By: JRW


Reviewed on: 11 Mar 2018

We were looking forward to sailing on Summit again, so were very disappointed to find that the service and attention to detail seemed "dumbed down." Celebrity used to be about luxury and class. To us, Modern Luxury is not the LOUD music, frequent announcements, and non-stop reminders to buy the deluxe beverage package. Embarkation took over an hour. Extra costs were everywhere - Tuscan Grill had premium priced entrees on top of the $45pp cover charge. Bar service in the lounges was minimal. Aqua Class and Blu were good, but the Blu menu was more limited than our last cruise. Waiter kept calling us his "family" rather than learning our names. It was February, and they had Christmas music playing the first morning. Aqua Class no longer had free bottled water in the cabin after the first day. Captain's Club Elite level provided some nice touches, but not enough for us to return to the Summit or Celebrity.

Go to the pool when the ship is in port and most people have left the ship. In the restaurants, the music often has words, which adds to the difficulty of carrying on a conversation.

Extremely pleased with this Celebrity cruise which balanced time on the ship with time in port perfectly. We had a Sky Suite and all the perks. Michaels’ Club was a welcome respite for us that we used frequently. Our butler, was fantastic and knew what we wanted before we could get the request out. Luminae is a great dining room that aspires to be a Michelin 1 star and comes close on occasion. The Chef’s Table ($279/couple) was probably the only better meal on the ship than what one could get in Luminae. The pools were small, sometimes murky in the afternoon, and it was a challenge to find lounge chairs, but we always managed to. The pool grill made excellent burgers and fries, and we tried the buffet for lunch once and it was quite excellent. Bermuda is just a classy place. Elbow Beach was just as beautiful as Horseshoe Bay, but more elegant and had a fine restaurant. Celebrity met or exceeded my expectations for quality, and service in all respects; we will cruise with them again.

Having traveled extensively on small and large ships, I have come to prefer the smaller ship experience. But Celebrity outdid themselves with the quality and level of service and attentiveness.

A few days prior to embarkation we were contacted by our Shoreside Concierge, Jamie, who effortlessly and efficiently handled our specialty dining reservations and a few other special requests. Separate lines for embarkation made the process pleasant and effortless. The food in Luminae was excellent...the service was excellent (most of the staff remembered us by name after our first meal)...our butler and cabin attendant were personable and didn't miss a single detail. Our only "issues" were some of the bartenders at the pool bars (slow with no personality)...and our experience at QSine. After the superb service at Luminae and Tuscan Grill, QSine was far below our expectations. Overall - EXCELLENT!

We very much enjoyed the Summit. All aspects of the cruise that we experienced were good. Dining in the Cosmopolitan Restaurant and Oceanview Cafe was very good. The Celebrity theatre presentations, the shore excursions, Revelation Lounge and the stern deck of the Oceanview were where we spent our most enjoyable time.

Overall this was a good trip, we had several port of calls that were new to us. The last time we sailed (2015) on the Summit, Captain Kate was in charge. This cruise did not have the "Wow" factor as the one in 2015 did have. Don't get me wrong, it was a good cruise on a good ship. My personal feeling was that there is financial pressure on the crew and seemed that there were less people taking care to make sure all needs were met in a timely manner. There also was pressure to buy "Select Dining" and other items like cooking classes and wine that went overboard. I would rather pay additional upfront and have these included in the package. We also experienced a smell of sewage on the 6th deck in the forward hallway every time we walked through the hall. Again do not mistake, we had a good time and cruise and look forward to future cruises.

Mostly a positive experience. The ship is going into dry dock. They were doing some of the work while we were on board. Some hammering etc which was somewhat annoying. We look forward to the refurbishment.

unfortunately we were on the last cruise before the ship was being refitted and as a result of that the appearance of the ship was rather tired. The staff and the amenities (we went Aqua Class ) made up for the shortcomings.

We took a cruise on the same boat last year and it was 100% different. They took out the library and moved all the books to a lounge ( which really wouldn’t be bad but now all the books are picked over and only spanish books are left) to make more cabins. The “over haul” was adding a new deck with a shower and larger whirlpool for top level suite guests only, and they down graded the 4 outdoor hot tubs to just whirlpools(small pool with bubbles). Took away some of the deck games, the first night they were already serving warm beer, and the food was pretty bad most of the time. There were very few plates that I really liked. THE BUFFET the wait staff, I ate there 2x a day for 7 days, so 14 times... 5 times i was asked if I would like a drink. 9 times they repeatedly walk by our table. OMG and the food there was the worst! 2 out of 10! The minute steak at lunch was the only really good thing. Please stop putting breakfast sausages on afternoon pizzas.
