St Croix, very nice beach just off pier to the left. Walk past the clock tower and follow along the shore. When you hit the beach continue along till the small shack where you can rent chairs and umbrellas.
Try to get a balcony then you can watch the stars!
St Maarten trip to Anguilla for swimming with the dolphins was amazing.
In St. Kitts and St. Croix we rented a car and explored. It was incredibly inexpensive and a great opportunity to be away from crowds. In Dominica we got a driver which was also much more economical than the cruise ship tours. Be sure to bring a picture ID with you in St. Thomas!
Public bus and ferries around the island quite good...no need to pay for excursion if you just want to get to Hamilton or Horseshoe Beach.
Get to the ship by 11:30am if possible to avoid lines but embarkation is orgainzed and very comfortable.
Eat your meals in the Cosmopolitan Restaurant.
Go to Whirlpool in the morning between 8 to 10. Take full benefit of the Gym: Excellent arrangement.
You cant miss the stir fry made by Mario. He makes them the best.. highly recommend it...
The Spa Food is the best kept secret on the ship
Go to the back of the ship on the 10th floor, where you can sit outside in the morning and evening to eat. That was a great place to sit!
get a bus/ferry 2 day pass. It's much cheaper than taxis or the "small bus".
Opt for Select Dining and make reservations for dinner before getting onboard(at least 4 days in advance).
Loved the service the Celebrity Summit provided. Everyone was extremely friendly. Captain Alex was very entertaining and Emily ran great trivia games.
if you have any food allergies or diet needs. don't go on this cruise line.
Summit is not too crowded for its smaller size. The only time we had an issue was at sea days. Impossible to find a lounger but not because there wasn't enough deck space. Celebrity had too few loungers to utilize the available space.
we booked the snorkel park beach - could have just walked it and paid lower fee since we don't do the water sports.
Don't be afraid to explore on your own. Everyone on the island is extremely friendly and happy to help.
The beaches at st. Thomas island are one of the best
