About Celebrity Cruises
Celebrity Cruises, marked with an X on the ships’ stacks, is characterized by elegance and international atmosphere on midsized ships. Extraordinary itineraries are even interesting for experienced travelers. Although the atmosphere in the daytime is very casual, the dress code “Smart Casual” is required on the so-called “Chic Evenings”. Most ships are designed very classy but the Solstice Class convinces its guests with an innovative design. Basic skills in English are recommended if you want to travel with Celebrity Cruises.
Celebrity Summit has been put into service in 2001 as a ship of the luxury “Millennium” class of the Celebrity Cruises. It offers room for 1950 passengers and you can look forward to a 5-star-cuisine, excellent service and a great value for your money.
All staterooms are furnished comfortablly and quite spacious. Free room service is available at all times. Staterooms belonging to the “Concierge Class” as well as suites enjoy the special butler service.
Atmosphere on Board
Despite its size, Celebrity Summit is a very comfortable ship mainly for passengers around 45 to 65 years. Families are seldom seen onboard. The majority of the passengers comes from the USA, but there are international guests as well.
Overall, the atmosphere is relaxed but high-class. During the day it is rather casual, but on special evenings formal dress is expected in the main restaurant.
A bottle of wine in the restaurant or at a bar costs from about 30 USD. All services are, as usual on American vessels, subject to a service fee.
