Review Summary

Experience at San Juan airport - had opted for the Celebrity bus  to get on board- well, we are seniors and my husband requires a wheelchair if walking distances are too far for him -  he had a wheelchair coming off the plane that brought him to where we were to take the bus and was told the bus would come outside and that I was required to take my luggage out to the curb myself - two large bags and two carry-ons - no wheelchair for husband as they were not allowed out of the building - Celebrity people watched me struggle with the bags - watched my husband try and walk that distance to the outside and did nothing to help - finally when one of the bags I was pulling fell ove the driver of the bus came over and asked if he could help - I canceled the bus going back at the end of the cruise and took a cab. Now for the bathrooms - what a disaster waiting to happen - no walk in shower - I had a suite - I have never seen tubs so high off the ground - a broken leg or arm in the making - I was told that some people bring in the small table from the balcony and use it as a step to get in the shower - are you kidding me??? Summit was clean - food was good - butler was very good - ship is old - but then so am I --- after the trip got to San Juan airport early -= curb side checkin said I could not have a wheelchair for my husband until I checked in at the desk - never had this happen to be before - so husband did the best he could getting into the terminal =- went to the desk and was told they could not take my luggage yet as it was too early - ok - can understand that - however, when I asked for a wheelchair for husband to sit in - and they were all there in view - was told that he could not have a wheelchair until his baggage was taken - what was he supposed to do - sit on the floor??Sitting is at a premium at that airport. My last comment is about the entertainment - it is non-existent - had the same juggler for two nights - no specialty acts at all - last night show was so bad I walked out. I loved the Solstice and also the Silhouette - but the Summit is not my cup of tea and San Juan airport certainly is not - one more comment - and I promise I will be done - there is nothing more frustrating than an airport that has places to eat but no tables or chairs and you have to sit with the food in your lap.
