This was our 13th cruise and the sixth with Celebrity and it was one of the best ever. As a Captain's Club member, the embarkation and disembarkation were quick and painless. It is well worth the $35 fee to join the Captain's Club because of all the extras.The food and service were the best we have ever experienced when cruising. From the bar and dining room staff to the officers, everyone did anything they could to provide us with a first class cruise. And if you really like upscale dining, the Normandie Restaurant is well worth the extra $25. It was so good the first time, we ate there twice.Due to the length of the cruise, 14 days, and the time of the year April/May the average passengers age was 60-80, and the entertainment was more subdued. Even though we are in our early 40s, and were the minority, we found the cruise very relaxing. If you are looking for high energy, you would not have been happy.There were a lot of new extras that we really enjoyed. They have converted the cigar bar into a piano bar. They serve sushi every night and have extended the AquaSpa and gym hours. Not to mention the complementary ice cold towels, sherbert and punch brought to your lounge chair by the pools.The production shows were very well done but the solo entertainers were not the best.Overall, if you are looking for a laid-back, upscale cruise at the price of mainstream cruise lines, it will be hard to beat the Summit (but we'll keep trying).
