Great price - good value for the number of days. Every crewmember seemed to want to give the best service. Our room steward was excellent. He couldn't do enough to please us, and was very personable. There were too many ports. We would have liked to have had more sea days. We were disappointed that there were no guest speakers and theme. As for the food, we found that it concentrated too much on just one particular ethnicity. Other cultures were featured in the buffet, but just once each. As well, there was too much emphasis on pork in the dining room and buffet. Anytime dining was allocated to deck 4 as so many people now choose it, and that deck could accommodate the number. However, the noise level, especially in the centre part was so high that it made dining not enjoyable. We asked to be seated in a quieter area, and were, but had an extremely long wait on some nights. Read Less

We had never done a cruise before and OH WOW!!! were we surprised. Ship was huge and beautiful. We ate mostly at the Oceanview café as it had plenty of variety. Stir Fry section in the evenings was our favorite and late pizza. Staff were great!! We ate at Qsine. Was very interesting. 3 dishes to chose from each then dessert. Was very good and so much food. Presentations were well done. We ate at Tuscan Grille was a pleasant experience our server was very pleasant. Great suggestions and meal was wonderful. Our Cruise Director Patrick was wondeful and the gentlemen that made our stay and every day with a smile was wonderful. Shout out to Arthur!!! Room was always clean, bed made and fresh towels. The Poolside bars, barstaff also pools and hot tubs were great!! Movie night under the stars was magical ;) We loved the excursions, saw so many places that we could not have done in 12 days. The evening shows at the Celebrity Theater and activities at the Revelations were great and fun!! Silent disco OMG that was great!! Canyon Ranch for fitness was great!! Massages were wonderful both my husband and I loved it! BUT: Being first timers, our Cruise & Vacation Consultant Expedia CruiseShipCenters did not inform us of an evening attire for every evening!! Therefore, most of our evenings were walking very quickly by the Martini bar, Grand foyer, Rendez-Vous or Cellar Masters. We have NEVER ever felt so out of place, and judge by so many people dressed up. Stares, and looking down on us incredible!! If we ever chose to cruise again, we will know next time to bring more evening attires. I suggest having those gatherings in an area of the deck where it is closed off and away from people walking through in order to get to where they are trying to go to. The age group was an OLDER crowd mostly retired people 60 and over. The other downfall was the internet pakage. Why not add it in as a hidden cost? Up the price of the cruise no one would ever know. They would simply be appreciative of the internet pakage added in with the price. Other than dreading the evenings dress up and age group everything else was great. Read Less

Well, it was our first cruise to this part of the Caribbean and we picked as to the number of different islands during the cruise. We‘ve been on a number of other cruises before, several of those with Celebrity which is so far our favorite cruise line. Although we enjoyed the cruise, I have to say it does not fully met our expectations. The itinerary was interesting, the islands are beautiful but very poor, i would have expected that they benefit much more from all the Cruise ship tourists coming over the year. We knew upfront that the summit is an older ship and will undergo a major overhaul shortly after our cruise. Anyhow, we recently have been on the Millennium just as well short before going into dry-dock. The overall appearance of the Millennium was nicer, cleaner and better maintained than our impression from the Summit. Food (we mainly went to the main restaurant for the fixed seating) was good quality, although we do have the feeling that the overall quality of food on Celebrity shipps is slightly getting down. Disappointing was the variety of food, menu was pretty much the same as during our last cruise on Millenium last October. That combined with a not extensive selection each given evening does not support the feeling of getting your money worth. Instead with all „special events“ being promoted by the staff you get the feeling that the cruise line wants you to pay additionally if you like good quality. We went on several days to the spa cafe for breakfast or lunch, they have nice small (and more or less healthy) food, however it is disappointing that the menu seems to never change, so after some day you had everything and it becomes boring. Service in the main restaurant was as good as always. Staff is very friendly, attentive and professional. However, the Sommelier concept (which we love as ware wine lovers) does not work anymore, if the the Sommelier has to many table to serve. How can a Sommelier advise you if he is mostly in a rush? He still did his best and we got nice wines to drink. But here as well as for the food, wine menu could need more changes from one cruise to the other. Positively we noted that the beer selection increased and they had a decent number of different beers on board. Beside the good service in the main restaurant we noted that service level in the Cafe al Bacio and in some bars was not as good as used from Celebrity. In the bars we had the feeling of a lack of staff, in Cafe al Bacio staff was there but not really attentive and not always as friendly as we are used to from former Celebrity cruises. For the stateroom, we had the impression that the staff has to less time for each stateroom to keep it in real good shape. They probably increased the number of staterooms each person has to look after. We booked three excursions with Celebrity and two on our own. We liked the fact that the groups were not as big as on other cruises, however that is most likely just based on the fact that the busses on the islands are smaller (and older). Especially as the busses are older and not that comfortable is was disappointing, that on the cruise line excursions this busses were pretty full packed, where the privately book tours left some seats empty to make it a little bit more comfortable. And if you now expect that those privately book tours have been more expensive, just the opposite is true. Cruise line charges more for less comfort. Overall: I still like Celebrity, staff is (mostly) very friendly and attentive, although the cruise line have to make sure that there is enough staff available. We very much liked the room service, which comes (except for a short blackout period during the night) free of charge and we enjoyed having breakfast in the room, although the selection in balcony class was not that extensive. However it was sufficient for a short breakfast before going on excursions. We like the ample room in the public areas, we never had the feeling the ship is too crowded and we alsways found a quiet place to sit and relax. However, we don’t like that we get the impression of a continuing lowering of quality and a continuing increase of „add-ons“ sold for „a fee“ (which is mostly much more than justified by the added quality. I know that’s not only true for Celebrity and maybe not only for cruise-lines too. Seems that companies try to reduce more and more the base fares to attract customers which then find out that they have to pay more and more additionally to get the service which was advertised and which they thought they have bought. I hope that will change back to a fair and transparent pricing. Customers may be sometimes not really clever but on general not as dump as marketing specialists believe, especially not those with enough money to pay for quality. Read Less
