Cruised once before on Celebrity (Mercury) and decided to catch a repositioning cruise through the Panama Canal. Embarkation in San Diego went well. Got aboard after a short stay in line. Room was not ready yet due to late debarking passengers but the ship had a lunch buffet while we waited. Rooms were soon available and our bags were in our room before dinner.Had a small table with two other couples at the main seating. Waiter and Asst waiter were excellent. Saw the Asst Maitre'de every day. Best one we've had on our six cruises. Most others only showed up on tip night.Cabin steward was excellent as have been all the cabin stewards we've ever had. Chose Celebrity because the buffets were as good as the main dining room. Sailed in 1998 on Mercury. Buffets were better then but they weren't bad this trip. I remenber there being a dinner buffet on the Mercury. On the Summit there was no dinner buffet. If you got back late from the port, you had no buffet options.Entertainment was okay but I would recommend more comedy and magic acts. Carnival does a better job on entertainment.Next cruise will be Alaska. Will likely choose a ship which has open dinner seating and charges tips to our room account. Hope celebrity offers these in the future. All in all, a great cruise.
