7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Sail Date: April 14, 2012 Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 5 years ago
The ship itself was nice. Enough of lounge chairs through out different sections of the ship. If you wanted to find quite place to relax, it was easy to find it. I didn't eat much of the lunch menu as we were off at all of our destinations. Dinner was always enjoyable. Breakfast was good. It had a lot of options but they were the same every day. I would wish to see potatoes to be prepared in a different way from day to day and smoothies would have been a very nice addition to the whole breakfast menu. Fitness center was very nice. It would have been nice to have pool table on board and more ping pong tables. Overall, it was great.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
Overall quality of food was good. At times, some ot the things were a little on the salty side. Their beef dishes as stake, fillet mignon and ect. were the best !!! Sea food was pretty good as well. I didn't try any chicken dishes as I eat a lot of chicken at home and there wanted to try something different. Salad bar was pretty good as well. The only thing I missed was avacado but I think its probably not cost effective for them. Same with fruits and berries wider variety would have been nice but its probably not cost effective. Yet, watermelon, pineapple, bananna, apple, pear were ripe and great tasting. Soups were hit and miss. Some were very good and others like lentil soup with turkey ham not so good (and I wasn't not the only one who felt this way). I would like to see a station with fresh fruit smoothies, this would prevent fruits from going bad and at the same time provide healthy, tasty drink for guests. Breakfast buffet-needs to be changed from day to day.

Entertainment was nice. I enjoyed everything but Matilda show which I thought was lame but it could have been just me. I loved the pianist, guitarist, orchestra, Katya and Dima's acrobatic/ballet presentation, dancers, Alehandro-cruise director, was very entertaining.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
The person who cleaned our room, Johnston, was the best!!! He always greeted us with smile. Very friendly, kind, joyful person. We really enjoyed his service. If he saw us walking to our room, he would open our door for us and welcome us in. The room was always clean and stocked up, Thank you so much Johnston, you made our stay top notch. Concierge desk-always pleasant, very helpful, answered all of our questions.

The ship itself was nice, clean, fairly easy to navigate around. Public restrooms were top of the line.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
Condition of the room was clean and overall good. The only negative thing was we had oceanview room and the window on the outside seemed like it was never washed but its probably impossible to do. Beds were not the top notch but for ship it was good.
Pros: Overall food options were a lot better at Celebrity Summit rather than Carnival Splendor that we sailed on prior to that.
Cons: Last breakfast-guy at previous egg benedict station took 45 min. to make an omlet and there were may be 7 people in line.
