Room Type: Balcony

This was nowhere close to what we wanted for our vacation. We are a young couple in our early thirty's. The ship and it's activities are designed for retiree's and the elderly. This was our concern when we booked but was assured it wasn't this way. Everyday after getting back on the ship from the ports we were stuck with what to do, there weren't any activties going on or shows until after dinner everyday/ This was the most boring vaca We have ever been on. The food was ok, the staff was great, and the service is the best we have had on a cruise, but it was so boring being stuck on the ship with nothing to do. Also the ship is not as big as it looks, it only has one after hours club and the other public areas are just open sitting areas with bars in them. It has two very small pools and none of the neat new things you see on the newer ships (ex: outdoor theatre, water slides, flo rider). The buffets had the same food evryday day it never changed, pasta bar, noodle bar, sushi, and indian food. They kept making fun of carnival cruises at all the shows, but all the carnival cruises we have been on had much more to do than this cruise by a long shot.

Pros: Staff and ports

Cons: entertainment and ship

Recommends Celebrity Summit? No.

Food and Dining
Buffet was nice the first day, but it never changed. The dining room food seemed very massed produced. I know all cruise ships mass produce food, but most cruise ships do a good job hiding this fact.
Ship Quality
Older ship, no larhe open areas with elevators like most ships, this makes it very easy to get lost. All hallways lead through clubs ,shops,and restaurants rather than them being seperate and you entering through a seperate doorway. You had to walk through three different bar areas to get from the front to the back of the ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was nice, the balcony was large and they gave us some amenties to use while on board.
no fun shows at the pool, no game show type shows during the day, only Broadway type shows at night. We had a comedian one night that was ok, but geared towards the retired crowd.. They also had a guy playing a Xylophone which was a bit wierd to have a whole dedicated to this. The last night "special show" was the comedian and the Xylophone guy again,doing the same stuff.
Children's Programs
nothing at all for kids, we have a three year old so we checked it out for the next time we bring our daughter. There was one 2foot pool at the very back of the boat that didn't have water in it and a very small kids club area. I would for sure not bring kids on this cruise.
Service and Staff
Staff was great, Service is their thing.
