  1. Just a quick opinion on the Summit, March 30 - Apr 6. We are new to Celebrity but this was our 30th cruise. We always book based on itinerary. The ship is gorgeous. We loved the colors. Our inside cabin was great, lots of storage plus a nice counter top area. The desk type chair and other chair were both appreciated. We enjoyed all the nook and cranny seating areas around the ship plus the usual seating was usually comfy. Our favorite place was the seating aft of the buffet. Our room steward Airlines was fantastic! He provided a memory foam pillow for hubby who thought the reg pillows were too fluffy plus a coverlet instead of the comforter. Loved the deck 4 outside promenade area. The coffee bar was good and customer service helpful. Though our room key did not work when we first got on and the line was sooo long. The food, mmm definitely just our opinion but it was pretty meh. The buffet had a good selection of Indian food, pasta and salad but definitely lacking in choice. Didn’t love having to wander almost the whole buffet area to see what they were having but it does cut down some on crowding. Eggs unless made to order were horrible and the line for omelets was usually long. The bakery made lots of fabulous bread but the dining room only had baguette and 1 other type besides those nasty hard breadsticks. Chocolate croissants were FABULOUS in the buffet. Desserts not so much. We ate in the dining room 6 nights and I had the NY strip steak 3 of those nights. They did have lobster on the 2nd formal night but it was small and all of my food that night was barely warm or not at all warm. Our waiters were ok but rarely asked us if we wanted drinks (non alcohol as we are not drinkers but love iced tea) Desserts here weren’t very good either. Definitely an older crowd, older than our Dec HAL cruise! Muster drill was AWFUL! Our station was B2, in the lounge for maybe suite guests? No seating, barely any air conditioning and after the long lifeboat part, they did announcements! Worst muster drill in years! The itinerary was fabulous. Loved every single island with Barbados and Grenada being our favorites. We were invited to the helipad for sail away, that was cool! The officers and crew were very friendly and visible. The CD did a good job. The shows were not good except the illusionist. He was great. All the bands we heard were great, Long play party band was fabulous but I felt bad as they got some lukewarm clapping sometimes. We had a good time, didn’t gain weight but I was surprised to not be a little more impressed by food and entertainment.
  2. Just wondering. Since we do not have a drink package for our October cruise we will definitely be attending for specialty coffee and mimosas/bloody marys. We prefer plated. Thank you!
  3. Thinking of doing a move up bid for aqua class, do you think it’s worth it? Right now we have a larger veranda on deck 7. Will put lowest bid so for two of us would be $240.
  4. Hello everyone! we are cruising to Bermuda on the Summit later this summer in an Aft Facing Accessible Cabin. (One on deck 7-9) Does anyone have photographs of these cabins after Summit’s stay at the cruiseship Elizabeth Arden? ... her most recent facelift? if discussed before, I apologize.
  5. Is Qsine on Summit still the old menu or is it converted to the animated meal?
  6. Does anyone know if they have food and drinks available at the newly created sundeck retreat? I thought they were going to have a bar and some light food like hamburgers etc. I also hear they planned on having pool butlers whick I would think would bring you food and drinks.
  7. Did they install night lights in the Summit bathrooms during the renovations?
  8. Celebrity changed from an Apple TV to a “new modem” type TV. When we attached our HDMI cable from our iPad to the tv as we’ve done many times, we couldn’t change the HDMI input. An IT supervisor came to our cabin and explained the new system. We were very disappointed as we’re used to viewing our shows (Netflix, Amazon, etc) via download and streaming.
  9. I have an S1 booked for November aboard the Summit. We were able to order from both the MDR menu AND Luminae menu last year aboard the Silhouette. Will we be able to do that while on the Summit? Thanks!

    Summit

    Good evening. We have never sailed with Celebrity and are considering their Canada New England cruise. What are your opinions on deck 2 for our stateroom? Or are there decks that are more appealing than others, in your opinions? Thank you.
  11. Just completed our check-in online for our July Bermuda sailing. In doing so it said we can use the Celebrity App to check-in at the port (Cape Liberty). It appears the app will let you text using the ship’s wi-fi. Has anyone been able to use this on recent Summit sailings? We are group of 17 on a family vacation, so this would be great for staying in touch. We used this feature a few years ago on RCI’s Anthem and it was great! Thanks in advance.
  12. We were on the 5/12 sailing and stayed in Cabin 3125 - one of the 4 or 5 new cabins created by the "revolution". The cabin seemed smaller than most but the round large porthole(window) was wonderful. The bed was a king so it took up more space. We adapted. However, the bathroom was so small(especially compared to the Edge oceanview). The sink takes up the whole counter area and one had to use the small shelves to the right(but we had stored items on them) and I had to put makeup case, etc. either in the sink(remembering not to turn faucet on) and mostly made use of the toiler cover as a place to put items when getting ready. I did not see any other oceanview cabins so not sure if the small bathroom(and small shower) was unique to the new Deck 3 cabins or not. I have been on many Celerity cruises and the bathroom situation was not good. We did hear some noise from the ship but it stopped after a few days. I loved the round large window for an oceanview cabin but that bathroom lacked convenience. If anyone has questions, please let me know.
  13. We are regular Celebrity cruisers and usually opt for a Sky Suite midships however the aft suites 6131 and 6132 do have larger balconies but look close to elevators. Has any of you lovely cruisers stayed in these particular suites and experienced any noise or disruption from the elevators? I am a very light sleeper!
  14. After painstakingly, deliberate consideration we chose one of the new deck 10 AQ cabins on the Millie for our upcoming Vancouver to Seward cruise. A lot of thought went into this decision. First and foremost, we wanted to be on starboard to watch the coastline as we travel north. We did not like the idea of the overhang on the deck 9 verandas so our choices for AQ was deck 11 or the new cabins on deck 10. Celebrity's specs on the cabin showed the exact square footage as the other AQ cabins, so even though we hadn't had the opportunity to hear anyone's real life experience, we made the choice. That was February. Fast forward to May and these cabins get re-classified to C2. A week in GTY limbo and then Celebrity gives us a port side cabin on deck 11! Celebrity says "no open starboard AQ cabins". TA complains on our behalf and I shook the tree as well. After much hold time, they put us back in our deck 10 cabin and agree to give us AQ perks. One might think I'd be happy with the resolution but now I'm reading that these cabins are significantly smaller than the other AQ cabins. We love spending time on our balcony and am wondering about the size of that too. I'm also worried that X is going to mess things up since we'd be the only AQ guests on deck 10. Not sure what to do now but I would love to hear from people that have stayed in these cabins since both ships were revolutionized. Were you happy with the cabin? Did the size matter to you? Did the location outweigh the size difference?
  15. For some you will break out the fireworks, marching band and cheerleaders....champagne flowing. For us, it was agony for 48 house. Ok ... all guests booked in aft facing Concierge cabins, sit down and hold on. You are now upgraded to Aqua Class. 👍🍾🕺💃🍸🥂💞🤸‍♀️😋 We were booked in the aft facing handicapped cabin with a friend (a triple) since January. Since Aqua Class are double cabins, the computer re-booked us in a non-aft, Non-Handicapped Aqua Suite Cabin and left our friend flying in the wind.....AND GAVE AWAY OUR HANDICAPPED CABIN. By the time we got through to an emergency customer service late that night we got the voicemail, the only handicapped cabin available was an inside. They promised to work on it but seemed happy they had booked us in one on those small/double Aqua Class cabins. No room at all for my scooter and no accessible Shower. As a top accounts agent years ago for Royal and Celebrity I KNEW they could and should do better. I put on my old agent cap and called. By now we had gotten pretty far up the Customer Service Food Chain. A trick I followed as an agent solving a problem, I refused to hang up until the problem was solved. Customer Service couldn’t hang up on US. i called with Flowers and Chocolates in my voice. Took a long time but they finally realized the problem. We have our handicapped cabin back and our friend is in an inside cabin around the corner. What we learned during this 2 day torture ......... During the refit the Aft Facing Concierge cabins were upgraded to Aqua Class. The sofabed has been replaced with mini sofa/big chair and does not convert. All of these cabins are now doubles. They have apparently decided to alert affected guests by sailing vs. all at once. I guess. We are sailing 1 September and we’re just contacted. if you are a Triple Reservation in one of these Aft Facing Concierge Cabins, call Customer Service right away to avoid our agonies with Customer Service. if you are traveling with others in other cabins who will not receive this upgrade, call Customer Service. You will be upgraded to Blu without your friends. Finally, did I make your day with news of an upgrade for you? ❤️ Cathy
  16. I know this may sound like a weird request, but can anyone provide a picture of the overhead view of the Summit taken from the Celebrity App? The one where the ship's bow is pointing to the top of the screen and it looks like a model of the ship, not an actual photo of the ship. Thanks in advance!
  17. On the Edge once you boarded you could drop off your carryon luggage right away at your cabin and pick up your key at the door and then go to lunch. Is that how it works now the "new" Summit"? It is quite nice to go to lunch without all your "stuff".
  18. Just want to share some information I don't see elsewhere. I just got off the phone with Celebrity. They had called regarding "changes to my cabin". I have a cruise booked in January of 2021. I had originally booked a C2 #9140. This room is now Aqua Class. The offer was to stay in the room for the same price or move to another C2 or C3. I stayed in a C2 on the same deck.
  19. I am trying to decide which Summit Bermuda cruise to take in June. They are both 11 day cruises that are basically identical except the June 5 cruise goes to Newport RI for one day and spends only one overnight in Bermuda (11am to 5pm the next day) while the June 16 cruise does not go to Newport but spends two nights in Bermuda(8:30am Wed to 3:00p Fri). I am travelling with my two teenage sons and we have not been to any of these ports before. The mansions in Newport are of interest to me but not sure how much they would appeal to teenage boys.I don't see us spending too much time at a beach as my sons prefer more active excursions or historical tours. Basically, additional port vs. more time in Bermuda is the dilemma. Any insight would be appreciated.
  20. Wonderful cabin. Only 1 minor inconvenience. There is no regular electric outlet anywhere close enough to a mirror in this cabin to style hair when using the blow dryer. I tried to use the TV screen as a mirror but that did not work very well. If I ever would sail in this cabin again, I would bring some kind of mirror along. I don't think electric extension cords are allowed. but that would be another option if they were.
  21. Does anyone know the hours in the Summit MDR for the concierge class luncheon on the first day?
  22. The Summit returns to Bermuda next weekend. My cruise is at the end of August and I'm hoping that some of you that cruise before me can provide copies of the current dailies and menus (MDR and bar.) Thank you.
  23. Does anyone know whether the verandas on the Summit will be designed like the New Celebrity Edge? I imagine that the decor will be the same, but will the veranda be like an open window as part of the room or will it still be a real balcony? I was on the Edge recently and was disappointed with the infinite veranda because the "openness" of a balcony was just not there. It had a full ceiling and full walls unlike a balcony in which the ceiling is partially open and the side walls are open at the top as well. The room is longer but you do not have more space because the two chairs and table which is part of the "balcony" takes up any extra room. The nice part of the infinite veranda is when the window is opened you can have a lovely breeze throughout your stateroom. The automatic shade was a plus as well. It just seemed like a wall to wall opened window.
  24. Staterooms were recently added to deck 10 on the Summit. Wondering if being directly under Cosmos Lounge is noisy in the evenings?
  25. Does Summit still have the Clothing Optional cruises?
