When is Celebrity Summit slated to resume operations?

(Latest Update: September 23, 2021) Celebrity Summit resumed cruising on July 3, 2021. The ship was among the first Celebrity Cruises’ vessels to restart sailing, offering week-long Caribbean itineraries from Philipsburg, St. Maarten. The ship has since moved to homeport from Miami, offering a variety of Western and Eastern Caribbean cruises into 2022. 

All eligible guests ages 12 years and older sailing with Celebrity Cruises must be fully vaccinated with all COVID-19 vaccine doses at least 14 days prior to sailing. Additionally, all guests 12 years and older must present a negative Covid-19 test result (taken as either as an Antigen or PCR test) conducted within two days of embarkation and complete a health questionnaire. All unvaccinated children between the ages of two and eleven years old, will be required to bring a negative Antigen or PCR test result conducted within three days of embarkation. 

Cruising on Celebrity Summit? Here’s our guide to everything you need to know before you board. 

About the Ship: Celebrity Summit takes the line’s modern luxury concept to the next level. The vessel isn’t the line's newest or biggest ship, but it's a favorite among couples and first-timers seeking a premium cruise with destination-focused itineraries, gourmet restaurants, and high-quality entertainment. It received a refurbishment in 2019 so you will find many new added amenities throughout the ship. At full capacity (prior to COVID-19), Celebrity Summit can carry 2,218 passengers and includes 1,079 cabins. All staterooms include expanded bathrooms, premium eXhale bedding, a comfortable layout, and ample storage.

Pricing: Sailings are filling up quickly with the return of Celebrity Cruises to the Caribbean and prices are continually changing regularly. Right now you can expect to pay about $70 per person per night for entry-level accommodations. Looking for your own private oasis to enjoy the spectacular views? We recommend choosing a Balcony Cabin. Prices for these rooms currently start at around $125 per person per night. 

Celebrity Cruises prices may seem a bit more expensive than other lines, however their ‘Always Included’ promotion inclusions make up for the high price tag. This offer includes the following on all Celebrity sailings: Wi-Fi, drinks, and daily gratuities.

Embarkation Process & Onboard Protocols

Prior to boarding the ship, Celebrity requires all guests ages 12 and older must present proof of COVID-19 vaccine. Additionally, all guests 12 years and older will be required to present a negative COVID-19 test (Antigen or PCR) conducted within two days of embarkation and complete a health questionnaire. Children, between the ages of two and eleven years old, will be required to bring a negative Antigen or PCR test result conducted within three days of embarkation. Additional tests will be administered onboard, free of charge if required for homeport, or home country re-entry. 

Celebrity is currently limiting the number of guests on each ship to allow for a reduced overall capacity and allow for social distancing. The line has introduced ​​enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols throughout the ship. Guests will find hand sanitizer stations strategically placed throughout the vessel. Almost all of our onboard venues or experiences will be operating, however guests may notice new protocols and signage to ensure maximum safety.
