    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.

    Summit Revolution

    Let’s see what we can dig up on Summit Revolution. I thought she was heading to Dry Dock today but just filed plans show she is heading to Port Everglades arriving on 16th Unless this is incorrect.

    Summit picture ....

    Does anyone have a recent picture of an Ocean View room on Deck 3 of the Summit? We are planning a 12 day Canada Cruise and wonder if we could survive without a balcony for that long?
  4. We were on the Summit in January 2018 and it was ok but would like to know how the refurbishing has improved the ship. Since then we have been on the Reflection and Silhouette and want to compare.

    Summit Revolution

    On the Celebrity website, the Summit deck plans have not yet been updated to post-revolution. However, if you do a dummy booking, go to the list of available staterooms and click on 'view this stateroom', the deck plan it takes you to appears to be the new version. For example, it shows the new inside cabins which will replace the library. You can also compare against the current deck plans to see which cabins have had the symbol for a convertible sofa removed and which still have it, and which presumably will continue to accommodate more than 2 people. Notably there are C1 aft-facing cabins which show as still sleeping 3 on Summit unlike Millennium. It does make sense that the new deck plan is being used for new bookings as it will save Celebrity having to move people from the cabin they've booked if capacity has been reduced, as has been happening recently.

    The new Summit

    Travelling on Summit in November, I would be interested to know if the makeover of the ship will also bring changes of menues in restaurants & bars? We have been on 5 cruises with Celebrity so far (1 x Infinity, 1 x Equinox, 3 x Constellation), always in Suite Class, therefore mostly dining in "Luminae". It would be great if some of you travelling on Summit (and/or Millenium) before November 2019 could post some pictures of the menue and wine lists of Luminae and the Specialty Restaurants. Of Course also photos of The Retreat & -Sundeck, Suites, Luminae etc. will be most appreciated! Also heard about the change from "Cellar Masters" into "Gastropub" with different kinds of draft beer - true? Thanks in advance for any update! Save travels to everyone!

    Celebrity Summit Drydock

    Can anyone tell me exactly when the Summit goes into dry dock and where does she go for that ?
  8. Hi Everyone - cruising first time on Celebrity and we booked a Concierge room. It was only $10 more, so we thought why not? However, I don't have a clue what we would need a concierge for. We are not going for any specialty dining and have reserved our own private excursions. I have one weird request - I would love a gym mat so I could do my morning stretches in my room. Do you think he/she could accommodate this request? Thank you.

    Tea and coffee on SUmmit

    On HAL there is free coffee and tea, hot and iced, all day in the Lido. Does anyone know if the SUmmit has such a thing or do I have to pay for every glass of iced tea?

    Summit to Bermuda menus

    Does anyone have copies of the nightly menus for the main dining room? I’m especially interested in the first and third night, as I’m debating on booking Tuscan Grille the first night for the discount or the 3rd for our Anniversary. However, if one of those nights there is something on the menu I think I would really enjoy I would hate to miss it.
  11. Will the Summit still have this after the refurb? Is there a fee for this? We will be in a Concierge Balcony Stateroom. Thanks.

    Summit/Pitons question

    Does the Summit pass by the Pitons in the AM before arriving? Â I know we did on the Carnival Triumph. Â It was SPECTACULAR! Â Just wondering if the Summit did the same thing?
  13. I was wondering whether the helipad on Summit is accessible to passengers, both during sail away and also at night. First cruise ever was on Freedom of the Seas last April, and I always loved being able to enjoy sail away from the helipad. I only got onto the helipad at night a couple of times, but when I did the view was stunning; have never seen so many stars in my life, and could even make out their colors! I did do a search of the boards and found one post from 2012 that seems to indicate it can vary from sailing to sailing for sail away; sometimes open to all, sometimes invite only. Has that changed over the last 6 years, or still varies? And that thread didn't indicate anything about night-time access, although after reading about how it's a little difficult to get to compared to an RC Voyager or Freedom class ship, I'm guessing they close it off at night to avoid accidents and injuries? If the helipad isn't a usable spot at night for stargazing, where would you recommend? I'll be sailing her Iceland & Greenland transatlantic, and once we're up north I might venture out regularly (assuming I'm up late enough to actually experience night in August in those northern latitudes) to try and see the stars, maybe catch the Northern Lights if I'm lucky.

    Rooftop Terrace on Summit

    I was looking at some pictures of Summit and saw some of the Rooftop Terrace. I don't remember it from our last Summit cruise in 2015. When was it added? Is it an adult-only area like the Serenity areas on Carnival ships? Or is it just a spot with ungraded chairs?
  15. Hi, Just wondering is there somewhere I can keep up to date of Celebrity Summits revamp, e.g. Instagram, website etc? We are booked to cruise with them this year and would love to see the updates, pictures plus deck plan layouts. Is Qsine a set menu or can you ask for an alternative as I don’t eat fish and would love to try the restaurant and experience but no point if I can’t. Thanks as always 😎

    Summit Question

    We are leaving out of Fort Lauderdale this Saturday, Jan. 5, on the Summit. Does anyone know the approximate time that boarding will begin? I realize that this is just a guess as it can vary. Thank you so much!

    Dress attire for Celebrity Summit

    We cruise many times a year, but this is our first on Celebrity. Is it alright to wear dress capri's on the non formal nights? Also, will the nice flip flops pass inspection to get into the dining areas. Not the cheap ones, the ones that are stylish with embellishments and such.

    Summit drink menus

    Does anyone know where I can find the bar/drink menus for the Summit? I've been googling and searching this forum for an hour, I can't find them anywhere. Mostly Solstice-class ship menus are coming up. I just got the classic drink package on an upcoming cruise, I'm trying to get an idea of whether or not the upgrade to the premium is worth it (and also to get excited about all the different drinks to try!)
  20. I just happened to log onto our account today to review our reservations & excursions for our April 13 2019 cruise aboard the summit, and now under the description of our room went from 3 person cabin, to a 2 person cabin. Problem is, we are a PARTY of 3! Celebrity hasn't even notified us of this change. I tried calling the hotline this evening, but they're only open until 8pm EST 😥 I'm hoping it's a computer glitch, but I saw on cruise critic the new Millenium post-dry dock deck plans and the same room on that ship is now a 2 person occupancy cabin as well Will try to call the cruise line again tomorrow

    We just returned from Christmas on Summit and had a wonderful time! After reading all of the negative reviews about the condition of the ship and poor service at the bars, our expectations were not very high! We were pleasantly surprised with our entire week onboard! To all of the people who complained about everything, maybe they should add a little more to their cups so that they will be half full rather than half empty! It had been a while since we had been on the Summit and we had forgotten how much we liked that ship. We had an aft cabin with the huge balcony and really enjoyed that once again. The aft cabins on the S class ships are just not as nice! The food in the MDR and buffet was excellent (we chose to have an aft cabin over Aqua class), our room steward was excellent, the bar service was excellent (especially the Martini Bar) and we were always greeted by a hello and a smile everywhere we went. We are not big entertainment people but we did go to one show....for five minutes! That's a matter of personal preference. It was an interesting blend of passengers onboard. We met single people who had never cruised before, couples with children, couples whose children were grown and couples like us who were there to escape the reality of a first Christmas since the loss of a loved one. We especially liked a couple from Wales who were on their first cruise and another "duo" of two friends who had met 13 years ago on a cruise and have gotten together since then to cruise. One lady had lost her husband and she was from Texas and her friend was from England. They were just the cutest! We only went to one specialty restaurant and that was Qsine. It was good but I am looking forward to another visit at La Petit Chef! The pools were not that crowded and we love those "bubble" bars in the Solarium! My only complaint that has nothing to do with Celebrity or the ship was the excursions I planned! I usually plan for 20+ people and this time, it was just another couple and us. Since we wanted this trip to be more laid back, we planned two excursions. Prince Taxi Tours to Cruzan Rum Distillery in St. Croix and another rum tour in St. Maarten (Toppers Rhum). Both of those tours left much to be desired. I think I will stick with a good island tour or a nice catamaran tour from now on! All in all, I can't think of any negatives! I will be happy to answer any questions!
  22. So while on Summit the past 12 days I tried to get information about the upcoming revolution drydock updates. Now we know the general scope of the changes based on the new Millennium deck plans that were shared in another thread here a couple weeks back, but here were a couple other things that staff members mentioned. 1. The Retreat sundeck is supposedly going to have some sort of “bistro” that will serve food. This came directly from a Luminae staff member. He used the wording “Bistro”. I assume it’s going to be a bar set up with some tables where there is a light menu like at Edge’s Retreat. The reason Luminae staff know about this is that they were given a heads up that they will have to serve there during the day. This happens on Edge now where servers from Luminae also are servers at the Retreat sundeck. The servers on Summit were apparently concerned about how this change would work as they are already doing service at places like Oceanview during the day when Luminae is closed. This is good news if true as we have had no word that I am aware of about any bar or food service in the Retreat sundeck on the revolutionized ships and that can make that space more attractive seeing as there is no pool going in. 2. I got an explanation about why no pool is going on the Retreat sundeck on the revolutionized ships. Supposedly it’s not a space issue, it ‘s a weight issue. Apparently adding a pool with all that water weight throws off the balance of the ship. This was a manager telling me this and he was only referencing M class but I assume S class would face the same issue so it does appear that S class will also not be getting a pool on the Retreat sundeck. 3. For fans of the M class Penthouses, I got confirmation that those cabins will be maintaining their overall layouts, so we won’t be seeing the addition of another bedroom or reduction of balcony space. It will be totally redone for everything inside the cabin though like furnishings, etc. They said the hot tub on the balcony will be taken out and replaced. So this was good news as that cabin is spectacular and I would not want to see it restructured. 4. The casino will be getting 60 new slot machines to replace older ones. It’s also getting a refurb as far as carpeting and furnishings. No word on whether the bar will be expanded at all; the host didn’t know.

    Bathtubs on Summit - Celebrity Suites ?

    Hi - We just finished a wonderful cruise in Asia on the Millie - loved our Celebrity Suite - except HATED the tub in the bathroom - way too hard to get in and out of - and also hated that the shower was not separate - but within the very hard to get in/out of bathtub). Question - debating on booking a cruise on the Summit in Canada/Eastern USA in August 2020 - can anyone tell us if the tubs in the Celebrity Suites on the Summit will be the same as those on the Millie ? - Or - updated bathrooms with separate showers ??? Thank You !

    Questions about Summit

    I would appreciate comments of travelers who have sailed Celebrity Summit deeper Southern Caribbean ... ABC Islands -- Aruba, Bonaire, & Curacao ...in February or March. We've sailed out of San Juan 4 times, ( January) & have not experienced rough seas on any of the sailings but we've sailed Barbados not so deeper islands like Aruba. Summit is a beautiful ship, but is it too small ...Just wondering what the sea conditions are usually like in the deeperSouthern Caribbean at this time of year with Summit. Thank you
  25. I am booked on Summit over New Yrs. I just checked cruise planner and saw they added a chef's table dinner, but labelled it Daniel Boulud Chef's Table, and only the first night at sea is available. I have been to his restaurant in NY which is amazing. Does anyone have any idea if this dinner will be offered throughout the week ?
