Review summary

Overall, great cruise & good value. We like cruising from Puerto Rico, and enjoy spending a few additional days on the island to take advantage of better airfares, and to see different parts of Puerto Rico.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Good food & great service. Menu for first "chic night' was weak, and since I did not have the preferred attire, we opted out of that one. The selection/quality of soups is still weak, but most other items had good variety & quality. Our dining room team led by Donovan was excellent. We had great service from the bar team in the Rendevouz lounge led by Anas - the sunset bar was also very good. We had the premium wine package, but often the good wine was hard to find in most bars other than these two & the wine cellar.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We were pleased with the availability of deck chairs - very little hoarding. Did not do many ship activities. Fitness center was good.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The show which was exceptional is 'ReVoiced'. A must see, amazing. The comedy shows were on too late in the day. The theatre productions were okay, not really my thing, but we did view at least a portion of most shows.

Service and Staff

Service staff was good. Our room steward Reggie was excellent, w

Ship Quality

As stated, the update to Summit was well executed. I was nervous because I loved Summit prior to the remodel, but was pleased with the outcome. I still prefer the smaller celebrity ships vs the larger Reflection class.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin fine, but noises from below that we could not control or identify. Will book on deck 3 or above going forward.

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Arrived day before - took cab to Courtyard Mirimar, then cab next day to ship. Pretty easy, and there is a 'Pueblo' supermarket across the street for last minute supplies. Just be sure they don't put you on the floor with families who have out of control kids.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

4 out of 5
Did island tour.

Oranjestad, Aruba

4 out of 5
Another island bus tour. Okay. Previous visits just did shopping.

Willemstad, Curacao

4 out of 5
A favorite for walking & shopping. Only our second time at this port - loved it first time. The port did not have as many fisherman displaying items as previous, and we did not see as many huge yachts as previously - the Shieks must be running out of oil/money. Still a good time.

Kralendijk, Bonaire

4 out of 5
Did a fancy "Aqua" trimaran tour & snorkel. A little pricey, but were able to see the fish while staying dry, and the option for snorkel. Good crew.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Customs was challenged, very slow.
