Celebrity Summit

April 2017 - Celebrity Summit to Caribbean - Southern

Great get away

Great get away.  Went  early and stayed in San Juan.  Cruise was great.  Unfortunately there was a group of about 500.  They sometimes thought they were a priority but nothing serious.  I have cruised on the Summit five times and I would go again.  I love the size of the ship as everything is convenient and not crowded.  Sure it might be a little dated but the service is 5 star and so is the food.  The Southern Caribbean islands are always exciting and beautiful.  I especially enjoyed St. Maarten/St. Martin and Antigua.  Beautiful beaches and a lot to see and do.  If in St. Maarten take a cab to Serafina's in Marigot and grab a sandwich and/or French pastry,  Baguettes are not to be missed.  Ham and cheese on a baguette is my favorite.

Celebrity Reflection

November 2016 - Celebrity Reflection to Caribbean - Western

Reflection

We cruised on Nov 5 out of Miami.  Unfortunately embarkation was far from for the usual Celebrity experience.  The ship arrived that morning from it's transatlantic passage and needed to undergo the normal US inspections.  Not the first time they have had to do this but check in was delayed with long lines and after you did manage to check in you couldn't board the ship.  They offered shuttles to a nearby mall or escorted you outside the terminal to wait.  Not a good experience and as I said early not the usual Celebrity experience.  The time changed that first night and the ship didn't turn clocks/schedule back.  People showed up for breakfast in Blu only to be turned away as they were closed.  They should arrive in port the evening before in order to complete all of the necessary inspections so that the passengers on the first cruise out on the new itinerary aren't treated so poorly at check in.  After things got straightened out we had a great  cruise.  Great food, great entertainment, great time.

Celebrity Summit

May 2016 - Celebrity Summit to Bermuda

Great cruise

This cruise is easy access for folks from the northeast.  Parking at the Bayonne Terminal is reasonable and right near the ship.  You can drop off luggage and then just park.  The ship is not a "mega" ship and just the right size.  Yes it is a little dated in spots but you really need to look to find those spots.  Everything is convenient on this ship because it isn't a "mega" ship.  Food is exceptional.  Staff is friendly and can't do enough to please you.  Entertainment is fun and enjoyable.  We have been on this ship four times and booked another cruise on the Summit out of San Juan.

sgibs's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - Took a private jeep tour. Great time. The guys loved driving the jeeps. Great snorkling.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island) - Plenty of beach chairs. Water is a little choppy but great place to relax. Nice to have the ship/s crew BBQ and serve food. More than one spot to get food so no lines and no crowds. Great place.
George Town, Grand Cayman - Was looking forward to the Stingray adventure but the wind cancelled that portion of our excursion. Turtle farm was informative and who can resist watching them in the water and/or holding them.
Celebrity Summit Celebrity Summit - In Bermuda hop a cab to Horseshoe Bay. Go early so it isn't crowded. Cabs drop you off at the bottom of the hill and pick up there to take you back to the ship. St. George is just a water taxi ride away. There is a small train tour, horse and carriage tour or just get a cab for a tour
