April 2017 - Celebrity Summit to Caribbean
This cruise was to place the Summit in Cape Liberty for her summer cruising season. The Summit is a beautiful ship with tasteful decor throughout. The ship's staff was excellent and friendly. The ship's captain was fun and informative. Every morning she would give her daily report, and include a daily riddle, and a quote from Confucius. That always brought a chuckle. I had an inside cabin on deck 8, forward, and almost never felt any motion from the ship. The cabin was comfortable and two people would have fit with no problem. A good size bathroom and plenty of closet space and storage was available. The cabin attendant did a fine job of taking care of my cabin, and always greeted me with a cheery "Good Morning". The lounge and pool deck entertainment was good with a wide variety of music styles to fit everyone's taste. From pop singers to a string duo, you could find something to listen to.
The food in the main dining room was very good, and again the staff made it a pleasure. They seemed to press you into the open seating, but I opted for the set dining time. I personally prefer having the same table and the same wait staff. They get to know you, know how you like your food, and are always ready for a recommendation. The "Lido" cafe on the pool deck was good, not great. Sometimes the food was hit or miss, but for cafeteria/buffet style service, that can happen. However, the space was roomy enough that there was never a big problem finding a place to sit. I can't comment on the internet service as I don't use it onboard a ship. Overall, I would recommend the Celebrity Summit and Celebrity Cruise Lines in general.
