My wife and I both got food poisoning on the last day of the cruise. Had to call out the paramedics at San Juan airport. Beware!! Otherwise good cruise
21 Apr 2019
The Summit is one of the slightly smaller Millennium class Celebrity ships but that doesn't mean that passengers miss out in any way. The Officers and crew are always around and available and so friendly and helpful. Food in all dining areas is excellent with a huge choice: entertainment was very varied and first class. There are lots of quiet areas to sit and read as well as larger social (people watching) parts of the ship. She is in for a massive re-furb in February so should look even better next year.
15 Oct 2018
Overall a very good cruise. Service on the ship was excellent. One concern was the delay between arriving in port and, then, access to the ship. Also, extended transit times between arriving in port and flights back to the UK.
