Review summary

We had a great time overall. Some minor glitches, but that is true of any trip. When we complained about our room steward, they refunded us our tip money and we gave tips directly to the people who provided us good service. The Summit is an older ship needing some upgrades, but it was more than adequate for this trip and the crew and entertainment made this a memorable cruise. Nice to see so many islands in one trip. Too bad the effects of the hurricanes in 2017 are still affecting many of the islands.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Only used main dining room first two days. Not impressed with the food selection and service was very slow. Also as older ship they still had the requirement to sit with strangers.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Fitness center was good, not great.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The Summit provided some top notch entertainers - B celebs from shows like America's got talent. Really enjoyed all of the acts and the house band was quite good. The Summit troupe was not quite as good though, thus 4 stars instead of 5.

Children's Programs

no kids

Service and Staff

Worst room steward I have ever had on a cruise. No introduction, didn't trspond when we called guest services (had to call twice on several occasions and they sent someone else to handle it). Wait staff in buffet were excellent, especially the cooks.

Celebrity offered optional walking tour and then ride to airport. No guidance, simply dropped us off downtown. Driver was 30 minutes late picking us up.

Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
