I enjoyed my cruise on the Celebrity Summit to Bermuda. I have cruised many times to Bermuda on different lines and I have cruised to extensively on all the major brands to many destinations. The last time I cruised with Celebrity was in 2001 so it was nice to return. Of course nothing stays the same and unfortunately some things that I loved about Celebrity has changed. Gone are pianos and harps playing instead DJs are playing in the main lobby. This kind of takes away from the elegance of it all. I am in my late thirties so I am guessing Celebrity is trying to appeal to people younger than I? They just seem like they can’t find their target audience. In any case, the Summit looks great after her renovation. I loved the interior design and the look of the staterooms. The only place they didn’t renovate was Cellar Masters and Sushi on 5. All in all she looks fairly new. The food was good to average as was service. The buffet restaurant flowed well and had a great selection of food. Embarkation was easy as was the departure. Entertainment seemed plentiful and while the shows were good the performers were excellent. The captain and his officers were very visible and courteous. This was my 10th time visiting Bermuda and it never disappoints. In my opinion, it is one of the best islands that offer some of the best beaches. Simply put, Bermuda is beautiful and I could have stayed a few more days! With all the alterations the Summit has had over the years, the ship doesn’t flow so well like she used to. Sushi on 5 blocks the flow of traffic, the added cabins on deck 11 block the jogging track and the new cabins added on deck 3 hide the Tuscan Grill. You have to go on hunt to find that restaurant. For the life of me I don’t get how they can do that but I guess they paid someone big bucks to come up with that idea. There are no longer any printed directories in the cabin so there is no way of knowing the number of room service or other services for that matter. Even guest relations gave me a wrong number for room service. I traveled with a few other people in cabins scattered around the ship. The inconsistencies with cabin amenities was rather large. My room did not have the advertised robes and tote bag other rooms had that and umbrellas, others had none of the advertised amenities. For me I personally do not care if I don't have robes but they do advertise these amenities. They also push beverage packages and upgrades very aggressively on embarkation day. Many crew would not take no for an answer which was rather uncomfortable. Overall, I had a great time and I would sail Celebrity again if they had an interesting itinerary. Sad to say but I felt Celebrity fell a little flat in some areas hopefully they will make changes.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2C
Cabin 2C 6024
This cabin had an extra-large balcony note noted on the deck plans. It is over the showroom but I did not hear any noise. Was a very quiet room.
