Default Celebrity Summit?

I think we finally chose the ship we are going on which it the summit. We have never sailed Celebrity and I know little about the line. If anyone has information regarding food, service, entertainment, and about the summit itself I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you

Lisa

Lisa, please do check the Celebrity forum, especially for recent pictures and many positive experiences on the many Celebrity ships. They rate #1 overall IMHO for service, food, and a total adult cruise experience. The best buy for my money, too. You hear very few announcements so be sure to read your daily newsletter to keep informed. The spa/gym and T-pool are surperb. Entertainment is varied and good, not great, but you can find something to please everyone. Low point would be children's and singles programs. But many families have a great time, especially during school breaks.
Bon Voyage

Since Summit is new, we can only judge that it will be identical in layout to the
Infinity. We cruised Infinity on the inaugural voyage early this spring, and we felt
it was superb--our opinion based on 14 cruises on other lines. It will be larger than
many, as are all in this class, but we found Infinity to be excellent in all respects.
As a matter of fact, we enjoyed Infinity so much that we are booked on Summit
for its first cruise in the Pacific--specifically Hawaii to Vancouver and then
Vancouver to Alaska--both in May, 2002. We should hasten to add that we are
not able to give any opinion on programs for children. Your will enjoy Summit!!

Lisa,

We chose Summit for our 2002 Alaskan cruise too! This will be our first time to Alaska and our first time on Celebrity. I am soooo excited.

I've been to the Caribbean 4 times so Alaska will be a nice change. Everyone says it's breathtaking. There was even a PBS special on the Trail of 98 and the White Pass Railroad...looks like a beautiful excursion and very interesting too.

We have been spoiled by Holland America, but fellow posters seem to indicate that Celebrity will meet the same expectations. I'm looking forward to a little more upbeat atmosphere and the butler service!
