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.
Good ship for a family cruise
Reviewed on: 17 Jul 2013
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 !

That was our 4th time on Summit -- love the ship -- the perfect size!! We always check where it is sailing when we're ready to book our next cruise. In fact, if there isn't an itinerary we want, we then check the sister ships (in fact, our next cruise is on the Infinity).

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.

My husband and I had a fabulous time on our cruise. The food was very good, the staff very friendly and helpful. My only criticism is their beverage program. It was very difficult to decide what was covered on each level of the program. Even after asking several individuals, it was not clear what was included or excluded.

This was my first cruise to Bermuda. The captain of the Summit was a great asset to the company - very personable and available to cruisers.Travel agent, Dave Mellon, was very helpful in deciding which cruise line we should take. His time and recommendations are greatly appreciated. Will definitely use him again for future trips. Was always pleasant and answered all questions.Dining room meals were very good. Buffet was not as good as the cruise taken on Royal Caribbean line to Alaska. Layout took a lot of walking to go around the island and then to find many of the sections closed.Crew members were very pleasant and tried to keep everyone happy and entertained.

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.

We have been on four Celebrity cruises, three of which have been on the Summit. Great ship, not too big (only 91,000 tons) but it has everything: pools, lots of deck space for lounge chairs, specialty restaurants, bars, coffee bars, theatre, casino, gym, spa and more.

This was my first cruise on a bigger ship and I did enjoy it. The crew was very friendly and did their jobs with care in the dining room, stateroom and everywhere else on board. There was an excellent variety of entertainment and there was always a spot on board that one could go to. I did find the pool area very loud and busy so did not use that section. Safety was a huge concern and when we left Bermuda a day early because of the Hurricane I was disappointed to lose a day but totally understood the reasoning.....well done.

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.

A good cruise
Reviewed on: 03 Jul 2017
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 . Each cruise line has their customer so this was a learning experience .

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.

The Summit is an excellent ship to take a cruise to Bermuda. Sailing from Bayonne, Nj gives enough sea days and enough time in Bermuda.

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. Definitely a trip I will remember.

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.

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. The internet is very expensive and awful in your cabin and we were not told it only really works in the public areas until the last day of the trip.

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. We chose one of the Celebrity Suites and were very pleasantly surprised. 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!

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.

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.

The Celebrity Summit is an older ship which has been "revolutionized" and my wife and I found it to be upgraded compared to one previous voyage on this ship 10 years ago. We only cruise on Celebrity and enjoy the the perks of the brand. Our trip this time was an "Independence Day Cruise" June-July to New England States /Canada. We enjoyed the trip and the refurbished cabins which have been upgraded but felt that the ship was still showing her age. The Persian Garden in the spa was virtually the same and was small and much less well appointed as the newer Solstice Class ships. Also the configuration of the Oceanview Cafe casual buffet dining room was not well laid out for the crunch of people dining there. Food stations did not follow a logical sequence for completing a meal and the food was just average compared to what we expect from Celebrity. The specialty restaurants were excellent as was the Blu Restaurant for Aqua Class cruisers. In future, we'll be sailing newer ships.

We enjoyed the Summit and would recommend it. The service and entertainment was wonderful. The cabin was very nice. We were a little disappointed in our verandah as it was an odd shape since it was situated next to a suite. We enjoyed being in aquaclass and would want to be in that category for the next cruise with Celebrity.

About as perfect as you can get. Cape Liberty terminal is the easiest for embarkation/debarkation. Staff on board ship do all they can to make sure you are enjoying your cruise. Meals and shows were all very good to excellent. Ship never felt crowded unlike the "mega" ships.

We enjoyed our recent two week cruise to New England and Canada on the recently remodeled Summit. However, Celebrity needs to train the lounge staff better on drinks available in their various packages. One of our group ordered a Bombay and tonic and received a glass of gin and a glass of tonic. All staff, especially staff in dining room and housekeeping, were extremely pleasant and helpful.

Celebrity Summit had to be one of the best of the fleet! The attendants just couldn't do enough for us. Our room person, Ida, was superb. I so appreciated him and his effort to make our cruise a great one. I so appreciated the cleanliness and the clean up of our room twice a day. Who could ask for more. Our stops were well planned and the shore offerings were soooooo very good. Our captain was especially good. An intelligent man who tried (and suceeded) to make his passengers happy and informed. I especially liked his talk about the sailing of the ship and I also enjoyed the evening he spent with a group of us on one of the outings.

The cruise was consistently challenged by unexpected weather systems, but Celebrity and the Captain did an outstanding job of adjusting the itinerary of ports in order to avoid the weather challenges and promote safety. Even with the many adjustments, the cruise was very enjoyable.

Enjoyed the refurbished ship. Excellent meals in all venues we utilized. Very disappointed in nightly entertainment. Production shows were very poor. Almost no background scenery or theme to the productions. Singers and dancers are very talented but subject matter is severely lacking. Specialty acts were the best part of the shows, by far. Excellent service from all staff members. Went out of their way to accommodate all needs and requests.

We loved the itinerary - New England and Canada - just as the foliage reached its peak! The ship was well appointed with an amazing captain and crew. All of our needs were attended to. The buffet in the Oceanview had the best selection of delicious foods with new offerings each day! Entertainment throughout the ship was diverse and high caliber. The main show each evening was impressive and very enjoyable! There was no shortage of opportunities to engage in activities with other guests or to just relax. We have cruised with Celebrity before and we will again! We are already planning our next cruise!
Great Ship, with a few notes
Reviewed on: 07 Nov 2019
We had a great time. The nightly shows were fantastic, the best we've ever seen on a cruise ship. Our only complaints were: 1) They got rid of the library. Instead, there were a few books on a shelf in one of the lounges. We didn't bring books because in the past, there was a huge library of books to choose from; 2) The shops weren't stocked with clothing appropriate for the destination. We were in Canada & New England in Fall. The weather was much colder than I expected (and packed for). I hoped to buy a sweater in one of the shops, but they only carried clothes for warm weather. The only thing remotely warm was a Celebrity branded sweatshirt for over $100. 3) I didn't love the changes to the Persian Garden Spa; everything was much brighter and lighter than in the past. I liked the dim lighting and colored lights. 4) Finally, they changed the showers in Aqua class. I was looking forward to the heavenly "wall" of spray; instead there was just a regular, handheld shower.

Celebrity Summit was a beautiful ship with so many amenities! The State Room we stayed in was beautiful, clean, plenty roomy, had comfortable beds, and a delightful deck. The food was very good in the main dining room, but I think most of all I enjoyed the coffee and pastries at the coffee shop :) I was fortunate enough to enjoy two massages on the trip and was very impressed with the woman who did them. I also liked the shows at night. They were all entertaining. I would highly recommend this cruise line to anyone.

The ship had a refurbishment at the beginning of 2019 and our Aqua stateroom was spectacular. The pink and cream color palette gave the stateroom a relaxing, clean, light, and contemporary feel, which we loved. The thing that Celebrity is known for is their food quality, and they didn’t disappoint. The abundance and quality on our cruise was outstanding. We enjoyed ourselves way too much! Celebrity is an amazing cruise line who values their guests. This is evident in every “good morning”, every “can I help you”, and every smile from the officers and crew. This is exactly why I sail with Celebrity. Would I recommend a Celebrity cruise? Without hesitation, yes!

Our First Cruise
By: Travel J
Reviewed on: 27 Feb 2020
We enjoyed our very first cruise on Celebrity Summit. We enjoyed the facilities, food, service and theatre (especially All McCartney). I felt they handled the Coronavirus issue very well with hand sanitizers and policy. One disappointment that we had was the dining room policy. It should be made clear that the dress code doesn’t apply on the first and last days, but applies to all other EVENING meals only. It should also be made clear that you can have breakfast any day as well on deck 4 in the dining room as well as the buffet option. We felt totally in the dark as far as what and when things were happening. We had no idea when shows were on. If we had a potential “daily event” schedule that could be reviewed in advance once you have booked, it would have made us much more comfortable planning our trip. Example, why would you book an excursion if there was an afternoon show that you would like to see? The app should have had all of the events to pick from in the calendar!

We had a great time on the Summit... although a smaller ship the updates to the rooms were a pleasant surprise. Meals were great as was the service. The celebrity singers and dancers were the best I have seen in quite a long time and the rest of the entertainment was also good. Embarkation and disembarking was very fast and the digital door lock and email communications onboard were a nice touch.
