Celebrity Summit

March 2015 - Celebrity Summit to Caribbean - Southern

A Very Old Ship

Rust on balcony and in our bathroom.  Staff was good, but nothing exceptional.  Cabin was fine, but candy on pillow only one night and no towel animals at all.  Cruise came with beverage package, thus all the drinks were included.  That worked well except that it was very inconsistent at the bars as to what brands they had.  If you wanted your drink with a specific brand of alcohol, you might have to got to a specific bar to get it.  Entertainment was okay.  The cruise director was not good at all.  He spent most of his time trying to get everybody to clap for the staff and entertainment.  Clearly there was a focus on non-traditional life styles, which the cruise director and some staff promoted at the Liar's Club event.  Ports were great, but the excursion options were not very enticing.  Most people we talked to just did their own thing.  If you go to Barbados and want to hire a taxi, ask around for Lydia.  She is fantastic and makes the day great.

Independence of the Seas

July 2012 - Independence of the Seas to Europe - Western Mediterranean

A Cruise with Problems

The staff are excellent in the cabins, the dining facilities and throughout the ship. Do not book on this ship, Independence of the Seas, if you need to use the internet during your cruise. It very seldom worked. Guest services was continuously giving credits to everybody using it throughout the cruise. Also, since they send everything through their corporate facilities they block many secrured websites and all sites like Skype. In addition, the entertainment (nightly shows) were not very good. We actually walked out on some they were so bad. This included both the cruise line's singers and dancers as well as the guest entertainers. As the cruise went along, fewer people came each night. Finally, the ship seems to cater to families with children. Out of 4300 passengers there were over 1000 children. Towards the end of the cruise, they started putting employees in the elevators since the kids were playing in them (pushing every floor and holding them so people could not get an elevator). Finally, they treeat formal dress up nights in the dining room as optional. When we brought formal attire and saw people in shirts and shorts, we were shocked as every cruise we have been on the attire was a requirement, not optional. So if you do not want to dress up, you may not need to pack those formal clothes.

Denny's Tips

Bridgetown, Barbados - Take a taxi tour and find Lydia at the port. She is terrific and makes the day fun.
Celebrity Summit Celebrity Summit - This ship is very old and Celebrity either needs to clean it up or take it out of service. It really hurts their reputation.
