We were on a 14-day Panama Canal transit two years ago on Summit; and, it was a wonderful experience. Nothing negative whatsoever in our experience.

In Dominica hike up to the waterfalls - if you can.

Not sure what your itinerary is... it helps if you list it.

Default Just sailed the Summit

Sailed the January 17th Summit cruise.

The ship is looking a little ragged. The wood railing around the ship needs sanded down and re-stained and sealed. Several areas of rust on the exterior also. I think this ship really shows its age.

Food in the main dining room is not better than Princess for instance.

Normandie specialty restaurant is fantastic! Worth the extra $$.

Service is excellent all through the ship.

Entertainment is very good.

Embarkation/Debarkation process is the best I have ever experienced!

Very good experience overall, but not unforgettable!

I still prefer Princess overall experinece.

I can't comment on excursions as I don't know what ports you're visiting. But I was on Summit for almost 3 weeks last March/April (we did a week around the Caribbean and then stayed on board for the repositioning across the Atlantic - it was awesome!) and we adored it. The staff are tremendous, especially Gary Walker, the British cruise director who made our cruise so special for us.
Carry on cruising!

Among other problems on the Summit, I had a terrible washroom in my cabin. Mold and mildew all over the floor and shower tiles, a shredded and dirty shower curtain, black all around the mirror, dirty toilet, and very few toiletries. My showerhead did not work, as is the complaint on so many of these posts. No amount of asking for the cabin to be cleaned seemed to bring any response. I didn't even see or meet my cabin stewardess for the first three days.
