More pics around the ship.  My husband and and I are loving the ship, we normally cruise Carnival and Ncl but I think we need to start cruising Celebrity.  What a difference and it's only day 1.

Many thanks to all the folks who have been posting photos and videos, and to Jim for this thread. 

 

We are booked on the Summit in September, and are looking forward to the "new" decor.  (Our only other M-class experience was on the Infinity in 2013, and she really needed a refresh back then!  🤣 )    As I said in an earlier comment, I do like the new color palette, it's very elegant and (as someone else said) serene.   I have a concern, though, about loss of functionality and surface/storage space (e.g., fewer drawers in the veranda cabins, swapping out a sofa for a sort of big chair, no coffee table), and am looking forward to what folks have to say after actual sailings. 

 

 

I'm sitting in the comfy chair as I'm writing this!  I like it a lot, yes only one can sit in at a time but I can curl up on it and look out the balcony.  I wouldn't normally do that in cabin furniture but this it's brand new right now 😉

Thanks for all the photos (and the "chair review" 🙂 ).  When you have the time and inclination, I'd certainly appreciate your thoughts on the storage (closet space, drawers, etc.), and I'm sure others would as well.  Thanks and enjoy your cruise!

I think there's plenty of storage, I like all the shelves and drawers.  I think it's better than Carnival or Ncl storage.

Thanks for posting all the movies and pictures.    Really looks fantastic.   I'm really enjoying that so much is being posted to give a real look at Summit.

Really appreciate you posting.  In 2015 we discovered Celebrity and there was no turning back.  It seems you are feeling the same way.  Thanks again!

Thanks for more pics...How easy has it been to upload and post them?

 

Some areas like Cafe Baccio seem unchanged other than carpet,  and  new chairs. Decor in  other areas seemd very new and refreshed.

 

How is the general lighting in the public areas? It  used to feel very dark in some spots.

 

Is there very much neon looking lighting?  We think it was overdone on EDGE...but did look nice out on the pool deck at night.  .

 

If you get to any Specialty dining..we would love to see pics and hear about the experience...

 

Thanks again!

Thanks for the pix.  Just curious, what kind of cabin is this, a regular Veranda or Concierge/AQ?  Thank you.

This is our first Celebrity cruise so it's all new to me, I haven't seen the whole ship yet.  Lighting seems to be nice.  I haven't seen any neon lights yet.  We are heading to Tuscan tonight, I'll take pics and post before sail away at 8:30

In June, we have booked Tuscan for the first evening.  Last October we had a wonderful experience.  The Maitre D was Bekir.  Perhaps he is still there.  If so, if given a chance, will you please ask if he will be there for the June 16 sailing.  If you don't have the opportunity, no problem.    Have a wonderful evening.  Thanks again!

There is usually a two for one price the first evening... to take the pressure off all the regular dining venues.

Thanks for all the pics.  Are the walls still metal so you can use magnets?  Also, can someone confirm that there are electrical plugs in both lamp bases.  This would be great so I can use my CPAP machine without stringing a wire across the room!

Thank you so much for posting the pictures and videos everyone!  We will be in a CS over Christmas week (did the same dates last year) and are SO excited to see the changes up close!  I have a question for anyone sailing now - did they do anything to the sports deck?  Or did that stay relatively the same?

Seems to me like the hanging space is not long enough as all your clothes are dragging on the bottom. This was also a  complaint in one of the suites I toured on the EDGE.  (Sorry forgot which suite it was.)

I was just wondering if anyone has pictures of the main staircase that had the yellow lights inside the steps.  I was wondering if they were updated or changed.  Perhaps there were pictures that I missed.

Thank you!

The insanity of replacing the canopy with bacon strips absolutely boggles my mind.  Why on earth would you eliminate so much shade in such a popular area?

Well I love bacon, but also I love this new design. It doesn't really look like bacon. The only way to get bacon this color would be to over cook it to the extreme, and then you would just be eating glass. Who wants to eat glass? I think the new sunset bar looks great, and the b-roll footage is great.

Dc .I so agree with you.  Taking away shade is ridiculous. Did you also notice hardly any shade in retreat ?

Same thing onEdge. Made expensive cabanas that are hardly used, taking away shade from most passengers.

It may LOOK great, but they've reduced the shade (and shelter from the occasional rain) by 80%.  

 

The odds of me sitting in the hot sun and saying "well... at least it looks nice..." is absolutely nil. 

 

If I want sun, I'll go to the pool deck.  I never sit on the pool deck.

I can't be in the sun uncovered, but refuse to give up cruising in warm climates. Used to enjoy sitting under canopy for shade for breakfast.  I will be the nut covered head to toe out on the deck!

Sorry if this question was answered, but can someone comment on the shows?   We're they changed during the revolution?
