What a fast week, it always is when your cruising. We really enjoyed the Summit, she is still in great shape and the crew is a happy crew. Everyone was so nice and always smiling. We spoke to one crew member who won't leave the Summit he has been on her for 6 years, he told us they were one happy family and it shows! I found the food to be very good. I am not a buffet person (not because of the food) I hate walking around with a tray looking for a seat. I like to be waited on when on vacation. I did try it several times and it was very good. We did take our Daughter and Son-in-law to the Normandy one evening, it of course is outstanding. We have done it a few times in the Ocean liner on the Constellation so for us, I don't really need to try it again but if you haven't do it at least once. We had the cabin in the very aft in CC class it was a very nice cabin and they took excellent care of us. My Daughter was in a Cat 2b balcony very nice as well. My son-in-law got a drink package that I did not see before it was called a Classic Package for $275 he could have anything from specialty coffees, beer, smoothies, frozen drinks (anything $8 and under) that I was thinking was pretty good. The Bar crew always keep them coming with no problem he got his $$$$ worth. They also offered 2 drinks for 1 from 4 to 6, even on the specials of the day so I had 2 frozen drinks for $5.75 and they were so good! Shows were very good but we only went to 3 of them. I will miss the Cova Cafe, it was a nice spot in the afternoon, I will enjoy the Crepes in Bistro on 5 and I do love Murano's. I have nothing but good thinks to say about the crew, food, and ship. The Dining Room was off the first 2 nights, it took a while for each course, we were told they had request for over 70 tables for 2 and were trying to accomodate everyone, after that it was fine. Looking forward to the Infinity in January and hoping for a happy crew!!
I remember someone posting that the crew had vanished her railing on her Balcony and thus rendering her Balcony useless..I had to laugh at that one, ours was freshly vanished also and was dry in about 5 hours. Someone also said he loved the pool on the Summit the best but it looked the same to me as the Constellation. I did not use room service but 1 time on this course and it was yummy too! ( notice how food seems to be my main focus LOL)

Thanks Janfred. I've always loved the Cova Cafe too. I'll be on the Infinity in Alaska, June 11th. Last time I was in Alaska was on the Summit in 2007. Will see how she compares.

Cruise Fanatic,
I can't wait to hear your review on the Infinity!

Welcome back, janfred Sounds like you had a marvelous cruise. I'm so happy to hear that the crew was happy and the food was delish!
I know what you mean about the week flying by. It never ceases to amaze me. Every day, I'd be up by 5am. I'd go walk a mile, enjoy a cigarette and some ice tea, go back to the cabin and wake up Rebecca. The next thing I knew it was time to get ready for dinner. Weekends seem to fly by as well.

At least we have the Epic to look forward to. I am so excited about Blue Man. Then you're off on the Infinity. It's so much fun looking forward to cruises!

I hate to tell you this and I hate to do it but I am going to have to pass on the Epic and cancel. My job is in the way of my fun time. I don't have enough vacation to do it. I had to use some of my vacation for my family. I do get 4 weeks a year but it still is not enough. I have not cancelled yet but I know I am just prolonging the agony....
I did so want to meet you and maybe Billy Buzzy if he were going too !

Welcome Back JanFred!

Heck, If you, Penny, and Billy were going on the Epic at the same time I'd have to book it too.

jo ann 05-24-2010 06:22 PM

thanks for the information. we sail the summitt on sunday to bermuda. never sailed celebrity before. am really excited now.

penny3333 05-25-2010 07:59 AM

Oh, no, janfred, say it isn't so

I totally understand, though. I was so looking forward to meeting you and your hubby. I was hoping the guys would hit it off and Ron would have someone to commiserate with about how tough he has it being married to me

I promise to take in all the new ship smell, check out all the attractions on board, and see the Blue Man group and let you know. Maybe next year y'all can go.

I haven't heard whether Billybuzzy can go or not. He was having to wait to see what his son's schedule was going to be.

Jo Ann,
