Review summaryWe really enjoyed this ship and itinerary. Summit is an older ship, BUT the crew and resulting service was top notch. You can see the cosmetic wear in many areas, but everything was clean, the food first rate, and service the tops. The Capt and his team are very visible to guests and go out of their way to answer questions and provide tips. We participated in the Cellar Master Chef's Table and enjoyed an incredible 5 course meal with wine pairings. Orlando the executive chef and the drink and beverage manager Mario hosted the event. Small intimate dinner with about 8 guests - superb in every way. Ship goes into upgrade in Jan 2019 - we'll return to some future date.
Food and Dining
Nice portions, creative drinks - but it remained the same menu throughout the cruise. Would have liked to see variation through the week
Diverse menu - very good, but the combinations of dishes at a meal is not conventional.
This is a review of Martini Bar which is our FAVORITE on the ship. Most creative bar tenders will put on a show for you.
Hosted the first part of the Chef's Table. Incredible experience. The bar has the most variety of drink options. Other bars are not as well stocked.
Cafe al Bacio and Gelateria
Great coffee drinks (hot and cold). Visited several times per day. Also includes pastries and a gelato station.
Sky Observation Lounge
High energy and relaxed when it needs to be,
Great variety of shows from comedy to musicals. Talented team. Like the small lit tables for drinks. Had not seen that on the other M ships.
Nice but outdated and ready for the renovation. Dark without an outside window like some of the other ships.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Ask about Cellar Masters Chef's table. Look at Deck 11 (highest cabin deck) Aqua Spa - private area with easy access to movie venue, Sunset Bar, and Qsine
