Celebrity Summit

June 2015 - Celebrity Summit to Bermuda

Nice ship, good food, great service

Summit is an older ship (14-15 years old), with some minor signs of its age, but overall in pretty good shape.  Rooms were comfortable, and cabin attendants were diligent and eager to please.  Dining room was very good.  Food selection and quality was excellent, and wait staff was generally attentive. We had "Celebrity Select" dining, meaning we were not assigned a specific dinner seating.  We could never get a reservation between 6:00 & 7:30, but showing up at that time without reservations we never had to wait more than 15 minutes for a table.  A couple of times we had to wait 15-20 minutes to be acknowledged by the waiter, which was disappointing.  We actually had to skip dessert on those nights to get to the show on time.  As for the entertainment - it was very good.  In our view, better than the theater shows was a fabulous jazz quartet from New Zealand, the Andrea Lisa Quartet, who generally played in one of the cocktail lounges.

Caribbean Princess

August 2013 - Caribbean Princess to Europe - Western Europe

Great itinerary, lovely experience

This cruise had such a great itinerary. My husband I Iike "destination" cruises, not just cruising for the sake of it. The ports on this cruise were all interesting - especially the first (Guernsey) and the last (LeHavre-Normandy), whose WWII history was so interesting and moving. The Caribbean Princess was a really nice ship, excellent service, food and entertainment. The only shortcoming to me were the lack of informative port talks. Instead of subject matter experts, they had a person who just seemed to be an experienced cruiser showing her own photos and commenting.

Adrianne's Tips

Celebrity Summit Celebrity Summit - In Hamilton, Bermuda, there is a free walking tour given by the Town Crier (yes, there is a Town Crier), every day at 10:30 leaving from City Hall. Excellent!
Le Havre (Paris), France - We took the ship's tour of the Normandy landing beaches. This cost $219 pp, and was a great tour, but Princess didn't even give us a bottle of water for the day. You'd think that with an all day tour for which they charge you $219, they could at least throw in the water and not charge you for it.
Belfast, Northern Ireland - We hired a local taxi (cabtours.com) to see the areas of political history ("The Troubles") in west Belfast, then around town. Excellent.
South Queensferry (Edinburgh), Scotland - Edinburgh was fantastic, though terribly crowded due to their International Festival, Fringe Festival and Tattoo, all happening during the week we were there.
Cobh (Cork), Ireland - We took the walking tour of Cobh; charming town with quite a history of its own. Lovely
Dublin, Ireland - Didn't see that much - ship's tour of city - St. Patrick's Cathedral and Trinity College. Nice. but would have liked to see more.
