We had a great time on the Summit. Captain Kate was a trip. She actually was at the gangway the end of the trip to thank everyone.

We went to Megan Bay which was great. The shopping is so-so, too many vendors trying to steer you into their shops.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Oranjestad, Aruba

Sunset cruise with drinks and food was very good. Ship based excursion. 2nd day we took public transportation which was a very good value. Went to the main hotel beach areas and huge out at a seaside restaurant that was great.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

4 out of 5
Shopping is town was much more laid back. We were able to find a more upscale store and bought is very nice clothes. Afternoon we did a snorkel trip that was rated highly. It was a ship excursion, the snorkeling was ok but not great.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

4 out of 5
We went to an all inclusive resort Ausol, that was great. Nice beach and great pools and restaurant. We got took on the beach by one of the bar girls. They seemed to have trouble with English but got impression that was an act.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
The suite people were well cared for by the crew. We found our luggage without any problem. Captain Kate thanks everyone as your left the boat. Priority line for customs went fast. We used a private transfer rather than the ship's. Driver met us up front and we were able to leave quickly. Other passengers looked like deer in the headlights. Definitely, worth using Viator rather than cruiseship transit.
