This was our third Celebrity cruise and the second on the Summit. This magnificent ship is just that - clean, well-managed and with a most personable crew.

I enjoy a good cigar, with Cognac after dinner, and was surprised when I went into Michael's Club only to find that there was no more cigar smoking allowed there. The rules had changed since last year's cruise. Smoking is permitted only in designated areas (port side only) in the lounges and outside decks.

Our travel agent got us assigned to Table 434 three weeks prior to the cruise. However, when we got to our cabin, there was a card laying on the bed specifying that we were assigned to Table 517. It took me at least an hour to speak with the restaurant manager about the mix up in table assignments. He told me that he would check into it and get back to me. I NEVER heard back from him. When I confronted him again about it, he said there was nothing he could do because those sitting at Table 434 would not give up that table. He never offered an explanation about the mix up. Table 517 proved to be a better table, as we could overlook almost the entire restaurant area. Our waiter and assistant were super guys; always cheerful and full of magic tricks and artful in napkin folding.

Will we be cruising with Celebrity again. Most certainly! Now all someone has to do is come up with some different Caribbean ports to see.
