April 2017 - 8 Night Caribbean & Bermuda (San Juan To Cape Liberty) Cruise on Celebrity Summit
An enjoyable repositioning cruise.
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.
