  1. My wife and I have recently returned from the 14-day New England/Canada cruise aboard the “revolutionized” Summit that departed Cape Liberty on September 8, 2019. This was our fifth cruise on Celebrity, and our second on an M-class ship. We sailed on the Infinity back in 2013, and she was fairly worn and in need of updating back then, so we were very much looking forward to seeing what the “revolution” had brought to the Summit. In the posts that follow, I will give my thoughts about the ship (including food, dining, entertainment, etc.), as well as the itinerary, and of course I’ll be happy to answer any questions that I can. (the Summit anchored in Bar Harbor, by turtles06)
  2. I was just wondering if there were any itinerary changes due to the strong Nor easter hitting the east coast - Oct. 17, 2019?
  3. Hi All, I just booked a cruise on the Summit out of San Juan. What's the earliest you think I could make a flight out of SJU? I'm not sure how far the cruise port is from SJU airport. The ship docks at 6am, then to clear customs and all that stuff, etc. Thanks
  4. We were on the Summit September 2019 and agree about Cellar Masters needs to be replaced. The Summit just went thru her revolution and they forgot to update Cellar Masters. It looks exactly the way it did when we were on the Summit 2014 cruise. We've never spent anytime in Cellar Masters either time other than just walking thru or meeting the CC hostess to be escorted to the CC priority tender.
  5. We were on Summit just 2 weeks ago and became very frustrated with Cellar Masters. We'd usually go around 6:00-6:15 for a pre-dinner drink; there were usually a few tables available, but not many. We enjoyed most of the entertainment groups they had there. We had some problems though: first, almost each night, we couldn't get served at a table - simply no staff around until about 6:30. We usually went to the bar and got our own drinks. The other issue was, for a supposed "Wine Bar", what staff there was knew or cared amazingly little about wine. The selection was very limited, they poured the wrong wines, used the wrong glasses, etc. We liked the location on the Summit (a great place to wait with your buzzer while waiting every night to be seated in Blu - but that's another story!), but on some other ships (I believe Solstice for example) Cellar Masters is somewhat closed off, so there's no activity to watch while you're enjoying a drink.
  6. Thanks for reading along and for the kind words. Yes, at the end of the muster drill, Capt. Matt announced that we'd be doing a sail by the Statue of Liberty. And once we did, the ship of course turned around to head south, so both sides got a good look at her. Also, as you said, you will certainly be able to see if the Summit, which backs into the pier and docks with her bow facing toward the harbor, pulls out and turns to port (which is toward the SOL), or immediately turns right, in which case you'll be heading directly toward the Verrazzano. Have a great cruise!
  7. Great review! We're on Summit the day after tomorrow and can't wait! One question if you're around in next day or so @Turtles06, did the Captain tell you before leaving that you'd be sailing past the SoL? I want to be ready to record it if we do - I'm hoping we can as it's the repo to San Juan so she's saying good bye to the NY Harbor. I'm sure I'll be able to tell by the direction we are heading, but I want to be in a good location to periscope if we do.
  8. Does anyone have any of the daily schedule of ship activities papers for the Summit ? I forgot the actual name of them. Cruising in November and wanted to take a look see, and see the daily activities .
  9. We were on the Summit in July and Cellar Masters was busy every evening until about 8:30. Many nights it got busy again after the show. On the M Class ships Cellar Masters is more of a full bar than on the SClass ships where the focus is primarily wines.
  10. Summit Sept 2019 CABIN #:9104 DECK #:9 CLASS:Aqua AREA:midship BED NEAR: QUIET?: intermittent loud clanging "metal on metal" type noise- episodic and could occur day or night BALCONY VIEW: BALCONY SIZE: WIND A PROBLEM?:n SOOT A PROBLEM?:n PROBLEMS/COMMENTS: This was quite loud when it occurred, especially at night- we were able to be moved to a different cabin
  11. For the Caribbean we typically go RCI or Disney, but as I stated in some previous post at some point you exhaust what RCI can offer. We are down to our last RCI Cruises, a Aus/NZ and the Arctic TA that goes to Greenland/Norway/Iceland on the brilliance next sept and we are tapped out on RCI except for the short Asia cruise market, some random ports in the med, and a transpacific which I just can’t take off for 22 days of work for. After that it’s all X cruises as we are out of itineraries on RCI except for the occasional Caribbean/Bahamas break. We did do the summit to Bermuda in August and I must say the kids program is very good. Better than RCI and more organized I felt. While the ship doesn’t have the bells and whistles, the youth staff was very good and better than RCI imo.
  12. I will be on the Summit in a few weeks. Are Capris pants ok for MDR in the evenings for ladies? Thanks in advance
  13. We were on the Summit last month. I loved the app. We had our Express Passes download on the app, and used them to check in at the pier (the first time we've ever checked in without using printed passes). And since we'd already uploaded our security photos, the check in took about two seconds. On board, it was terrific to have the daily schedule right on my phone (be sure to set the filter to "all" activities, instead of the default, which is "recommended"). Great to be able to see menus. And it was fun to be able to see where the ship was (using the graphic of the ship on the app). Enjoy!
  14. Perhaps I have some misinformation,but I thought that Captain Kate became a Captain long before LLP became CEO of Celebrity. Although recently,Captain Kate has been assigned from the Summit to larger/newer ships including the Edge. This may be due in part to LLP’s influence. As to the role of women in the work force today, I can only look to my friends’ female children. Their careers include,a tug boat Captain,a neonatology physician, a marketing executive at a leading food product company, and an architectural interior designer. As a commercial from the 70s said, “We’ve come a long way baby !”. As someone who graduated from college in 1974 with a teaching degree, I can certainly appreciate all the interesting opportunities offered to women in the work force today.
  15. There is a review on CC here for the same cabin location on the Summit. It may help you decide -
  16. We had this type of room on the Summit. The room is quiet. No problem there. Look at the diagram of the deck. Our balcony was not private. People in the elevator could see us, which was a little creepy. The next room over, in which we also stayed, was fine.
  17. Summit, September 2019...we had an early excursion one day so we did the room service breakfast. My wife drinks coffee and requested half n half. No problem. She also had to request half n half each morning in the MDR. No problem.
  18. Has any stayed in outside cabin 7000 on the Summit? Any thoughts? Thanks
  19. I can only speak to why we sail with our 12-year old son on Celebrity. Our son detests chaos and noise, so Celebrity is really up his alley. His ideal day is having hot chocolate and a muffin at Cafe al Bacio, doing a half-day shore excursion, returning to the ship for lunch (Sushi on 5 is his favorite), playing basketball (on our last cruise there were a ton of teens and adults playing pick-up games), maybe lounging by the pool, dinner, then an evening in the small kids club. We've sailed DCL 7 times and age 7 was really the sweet spot for him on that line. On our last DCL cruise, when he was 11, he went to their kids club for exactly 2 hours while my husband and I went to one of their adults-only restaurants. After dinner, we found him in the club playing chess with one of the counselors and, once that game was over, he wanted to leave immediately. We sailed over Christmas week last year on Summit and the ship really was not overrun by children and, the ones that were there, were quite well-behaved in my opinion. We have never sailed under KSF, so it hasn't been an incentive thus far. I find, all-in, Celebrity offers a pretty good bang-for-your-buck for a major cruise line and always prices out less than DCL and RCCL for comparable staterooms. I will say, in the mommy circles I run in, Celebrity is not on the radar at all. I think the go-to cruise lines for families continue to be DCL, RCCL and Carnival.
  20. Forgot to ask, which ship are you on? The app only works on these ships at this time: - Celebrity Constellation - Celebrity Edge - Celebrity Equinox - Celebrity Millennium - Celebrity Reflection - Celebrity Summit
  21. We were on the Summit this time last year! Wishing you all the best as you weather the storm.
  22. December 16th 2017. We were onboard Summit in the Caribbean. Captain Kate announces over the tannoy that the ship will be diverting course in response to a distress call. An hour later the ship slows to a crawl, everyone on the ship it seems is up top looking for 'something'.... Twenty minutes later a sailboat comes into view. I heard at least three old dears ask words to the effect of "could they be pirates". Summit stops a distance from the boat and they're clearly taking a very long hard look at the boat. Eventually they launch a lifeboat. It takes a while before they can pull along the boat and rescue the passengers due to the waves, but they got them. We watched the passengers being rescued. It turns out they'd been adrift for a month after they experienced issues with their rudder on their way from Haiti to Guadeloupe. They had been adrift for almost one month and had been without food for several days. It also transpired that two of the women rescued were pregnant too. They disembarked the next day in Curacao safely. It was quite heartwarming to see. :)
  23. What a bummer. We did this cruise 8 to 22 September on the Summit and had great weather. The positive is those on this cruise are on a beautiful ship.
