When is Celebrity Summit slated to resume operations?

Celebrity Summit will begin cruising in the Caribbean starting July 3, 2021. The ship is offering week-long all-Caribbean itineraries through August 27, sailing from Philipsburg, St. Maarten, and depending on itinerary, will sail to Willemstad (Curacao), Oranjestad (Aruba), Bridgetown (Barbados), Tortola (B.V.I.), or Castries (St. Lucia).

All guests ages 16 years and older sailing with Celebrity Cruises must be fully vaccinated with all COVID-19 vaccine doses administered at least 14 days prior to sailing. As of August 1, 2021, all US Guests ages 12 and older must be fully vaccinated. 

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 this summer and prices are changing regularly. Right now you can expect to pay about $90 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 $145 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.

An additional test will be administered onboard, free of charge, if required for home country re-entry. All adults ages 16 years and older must present proof of vaccination prior to sailing, and come August 1, all US Guests ages 12 and older must present vaccination proof.
