7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 11, 2012
Ship: Celebrity Summit
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The Summit is 10 years old, and certain things show their age (deck chairs, a few service doors, tile in the bathrooms etc.). Still, it is generally very well maintained and had had recent additions to make it more comparable to the Solstice-class ships. The food and over-all service is excellent, which is typical of Celebrity. The new Qsine restaurant is very fun and different from the main dining experience. Highly recommended! The ship has a pleasant and roomy feel in public areas (excluding the main dining and casino, of course) so there are few times that it feels crowded or loud. One oddity was the music choice - loud disco beat in the formal dining room, which tended to be turned off each night at the request of diners, but started again the next evening. This may seem like a small thing, but it really changes the tenor of the experience. Serene, new age by the pool, which didn't bother me, but I heard some wishing for a more exciting atmosphere. If you're wanting an experience of excellent service, and good food, Celebrity continues to be an excellent option. If you're wanting high-energy, loud and raucous, it probably isn't your best option.

The new Qsine restaurant is fantastic! Watch for drink pricing, particularly in the Martini Bar. A vodka gimlet cost almost twice as much there - ouch.

Always well-trained and courteous. Of course you can always find exceptions, but the service is great.
