Just returned last Friday from a 7 day on the Celebrity SUMMIT. Also sailed on the STAR Princess last September. As you probably know, the STAR and the Caribbean Princess are sister ships and almost identical.
If your SUMMIT cruise falls through, I would have no reservation in recommending Princess. On the STAR, we enjoyed fine service, excellent food, wonderful entertainment and particularly personal choice dining.
On the SUMMIT we experienced the same, but the deal breaker for us in future bookings will be the personal choice dining. Although many cruisers enjoy traditional, my preference is to have my meals at a time of my choosing. With that in mind, Princess best suits us!
Hope this helps in some way! Happy sailing.
