Summit -- Wonderful -- Best Cruise Ever


Recommended Posts

I'm putting together a review but just wanted to let everyone know that I'm back from my April 5 11-day Summit cruise and it was the best cruise ever. Best ship, best service, best new friends . . . A+. We've already booked the 10-day in October on the Summit.

You did the same thing we did. We were on 11 day on 3/15 and booked the 10 day next 3/11. Seems Summit is a very popular ship!

I was on the ten day ending 4/5 and reported the crew "firing on all cylinders"; I enjoyed it more than the 11 day ultimate on Summit over new years 02-03 but only for the crew - OK maybe the ports - but the central america then aruba GC is s fine mix too. Crew is everything - they're hummin'...

Hi BasketLady - I'm also on the October 15th 10 night sailing of the Summit with JuliePaule. Julie already found us on the Roll Call board, so head on over and say 'hello'. We sailed on the Summit at Christmas for the 11 night and loved it so much we booked the 10 night. Can't wait to read your review




P.S. Hi Rosie!

Stretch -- we were on Summit for 11 days in March to the Western Caribbean and it was wonderful. That was our second cruise on her and we have already booked the Southern Caribbean on her next March. As you can see, we are having a hard time getting off her!!


She is a lovely ship, and the crew must be the best of the fleet in my opinion (after six cruises). You will have an absolutly fabulous time. We thought the food was excellent, certainly better than anything I get at home. And there are so many choices!!! The french fries are to die for and the ice cream isn't bad either!! Be sure and try the specialty restaurant, the Normandy. It costs an extra $25/per person but it is worth every dime.


Please let me know if I can answer any specific questions you have.

Was on the 11 day Summit with Basketlady and I have to concur it was a great cruise. For everyone's information the speciality restaurant is now 30 dollars per person but still worth the price. Also don't miss the spa cuisine I think it was some of the best on the ship and had lunch there almost every day. I have booked early seating dinners because I don't eat a lot at breakfast or lunch so by around 6:00 I am hungry but the thought of eating pizza, hamburgers etc to "tide" me over until late dinner was never appealing as that would constitue a heavy meal. The next time I take the Summit I will probably book late seating and if hungry I have the lighter and tastier fare at the Spa or a quick Sushi Snack leaving plenty or room to try what they have on their dinner menus

Hi Basketlady

Was on the same cruise with you, in fact, sat at your dinner table with Lance the waiter who was wonderful.

I have to agree, the Summit was wonderful, met so many wonderful people, thoroughly enjoy the cruise. In fact, one of the best & I will definitely sail the Summit again. Say 'hi' to your hubby for me.
