Our ll day cruise to the Caribbean on March 24, 2003 was good but not great. The Summit is a very nice ship and everything is kept spotless by a very nice crew. Our main complaint is that the cruise itself was impersonal and the dining choices were limited. At no time during the entire cruise was one public address announcement made about our itinerary! We found this to be strange since we know by our maps that we passed close to Jamaica and Cuba in the daylight, but no mention of this. In addition, the captain was anonymous; we never saw him at all. The dining was overrated. If you didn't want to eat at your set time for dinner in the main dining room, you were limited to a handful of entrees in the grill since the buffet closed at 3pm. The ship still maintains formal evenings for all in the main dining room. The food that we had there was good but not exceptional. Too bad that they are letting all the space in the buffet dining area be wasted in the evening.
