Sail Date: April 01, 2014 Ship: Celebrity Summit Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 4 years ago
Nice ship\, well kept\, a little smaller\, but while it was smaller it didn't feel like you were tripping over people. Great staff to cruiser ratio. Very few kids and mostly an older cruising crowd - 35 - 60. Very low energy\, no big sail off parties.
Food and Dining
1 out of 5
We only ate in the main restaurant. Buffet high quality\, but main restaurant was unimpressive as far as food choices and quality. Often we ate off of the \"available every day\" options and I am a foodie. Blue cheese souffle was outstanding\, but nothing else fell in this category.

Quality of performers was way beyond what we had seen on other cruises\, but there was not enough variety. Same guy playing guitar at Sunset bar every night\, same people pool side every day. After you had seen them twice\, they were playing the same things. Quality of big Theatre shows was great - Circue de Solei kinds of performances. Great comedian. Bad part was they need to start when they say they are going to. Many things did not start on time. Last night went to watch a show\, another show was playing on the same stage\, had to wait until first one was done tearing down to set up for second one. Started a half hour late (that's all the longer we wanted to stay\, being the last night and long day of travel the next day). Not the fault of the entertainers\, bad management by ship staff.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Always a greeting. Would help you with anything and LOTS of staff everywhere. Also liked seeing entertainment staff involved with guests\, getting guests involved\, and in the dining room eating. Seems as if Celebrity does not treat their staff as \"second class\" citizens where other lines kind of do.

Clean\, says it was recently redone\, but lacks \"redone\" pizzaz. Nothing grand about it\, all areas are the same. Middle area by Martini bar could be crowded. They could have opened that up more in their remodel.
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
SMALL. We have been on Princess\, Carnival\, and Royal\, smallest stateroom (we were interior room 8000) we always cruise interior. We did not have the yellow Celebrity beach towels in our room so we brought some down from the pool as we had an early excursion the next day. Room Steward told us we didn't have to bring them from pool\, he would get them for us. He did\, but after our first day of use\, we left them on the floor to be washed and replaced. We never saw them again. We had to ask every day for beach towels and he always brought us the blue ones from the pool area (which were much lower quality). Asked others in interior rooms if this was their case\, but no\, they all had the nicer Celebrity ones. Glasses in stateroom were never replaced after we had used them. Room was clean
Pros: Number of ports\, Sunset bar\, Entertainment quality
Cons: Dinner was the SLOWEST on any cruise we have ever been on. Didn't even go the last night because it took too long. Restaurant was not busy.
