7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 14, 2009
Ship: Celebrity Summit
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

The ship was beautify decorated. There was not some of the amenities seen elsewhere such as a golf simulator, climbing wall or mini golgf course but what was there was all very nicely maintained. Very clean and well managed.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was first rate. Menues had a good variety. Seafood lovers would enjoy the many offerings. Only problem was that we found MSG or other additives must have been added. We had some reactions to food at times.

Entertainment is not their strong suit. It was good but not innovative in any way. The bands were sedate with easy listening style of music.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Crew were always helpful and also had a sense of humor. That sense helped us all enjoy the time spent with them.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship layout was fiine even wirh the large crowd we carried. Staff were always willing to help when asked.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The room was tight at the foot of the bed to walk by. Other than that it was nicely decorated and quite adequate. We do not cruise to spend time in the room.

Tubing down the river rapids was a fine time and the rum punch gave a real kick. Just not for wee children.

More easy going, laid back approach to living here. Don't demand fast service. They have "no worries, mon".
Don't Miss: Famous for the diving.

It rained and blew! In St. Maarten it is always sunny, I thought. Worked out as we went out n the Americas Cup race and had a rolicking time. Faux designer purses and other items, and watches (Chinese Rolex) are best prices here.
Don't Miss: Everyone should do the America's Cup at least once, even seeing the cost.
5 out of 5
Lots of shops. You can walk all over and feel secure. Minibuses everywhere to take you on tour. Public buses good and cheap to the beaches.
Don't Miss: Beaches are beautiful. Rent a cot and relax.

Went out on a sailboat for fun. swimming and beaching. Most enjoyable.
Don't Miss: Walk up to the town square market well beyond the tourist trap shops on the docks.

Pros: Ship's crew were all efficent. The check in and out were most smooth.

Cons: Rather subdued party atmosphere, elevator music sessions.
