Smile Review from Celebrity Summit
I have been on the Summit a few years ago but not since Celebrity Summit went thru it's Solsticizing. I had read some reviews and was surprised that some were so negative. I found the ship to be beautiful. Beautiful leather chairs everywhere on Deck 5 near Cellar Masters and Bistro on Five. The carpets were also beautiful. Up in the Revelations Lounge it was stunning. Perhaps it was because it was all done in my favorite color! So relaxing up there with all the glass looking out over the sea. Someone complain about having a cracked tile in their bathroom and I did too but I have one in my kitchen so I really didn't care about that! Complaints about carpet having water stains near the pool (really) who cares it is by the pool. Carpets were new all over the ship in in the cabins.
Service was wonderful and everyone was so friendly and nice. I did however find some of the passengers so darn impatient, it was ridiculous. A table mate opened his own bottle of wine because he could not wait 2 min for the sommelier to do it. He had his own cork screw in his pocket. I was waiting for more salad on the first day to be brought out and a lady had a fit because they ran out and had to go get more she did not want to wait for 2 min and said, "they sure took my money fast". Poor Crew, I know sometimes it must be hard to smile. We had dinner in Qzine and it was as fantastic as the last 2 times I went there on the Silhouette, so much fun and de-lish! Bistro on Five was also excellent. We had early dinner in the Main Restaurant and I found the food to be excellent. I had the most tender melt in mouth fillet...mmm. No escargot but they used the same cute dish and did small mushroom caps stuffed with crab meat and a wonderful sauce. I loved them, so I did not miss the escargot really. I had breakfast in the Normandy for Elite Member every morning but did manage to go upstairs to get those fantastic waffles ! We did not go to shows we chose to do some night excursions in Bermuda. I found they had lots to do on board and of course you can't do them all. I tried the Perisian Garden for the first time and it was so relaxing. They have 3 different saunas. One was herbal steam, one was a dry heat and the third was a Turkish steam. All the tile lounges were heated and the showers to cool off had different settings like Tropical Rain or Victoria Falls. That was very nice, the one staff member I delt with could have been nicer. One crew member that was not very helpful. I just love Bermuda and Celebrity ! Crabby passengers should stay home...why do they cruise? One table mate said he never goes to the Grand Buffet because that is when they are getting rid of all the leftovers on the ship to restock for the next cruise and they just are cleaning out the fridge.....really was as always unbelievable and so much hard work for the crew. Loved it all. Thank you Celebrity for another wonderful, relaxing and weight gaining cruise !!
Next we will see how NCL Breakaway does to Bermuda :OD
