This was our first cruise, and we were definitely not disappointed! The service was excellent-staff knew what you wanted almost before you asked, and you always received a smile and an inquiry to how your day was by any of the staff that you passed.
The food was awesome! The Grand restaurant had an excellent selection every evening, lunch was split between the poolside grill and the indoor buffet. Breakfast was either ordered to our suite to eat on the balcony, or at the poolside grill where they had belgium waffles (these are really good!), with your choice of toppings.
We were never bored, there was always an abundance of activities every day, and we enjoyed all of the ports (San Juan, St. Martin, St. Thomas and Nassau), my favorite was St. Martin - clear, aqua coloured water, and very nice people. Probably my least favorite was Nassau - found it very commercialized, it was the only port that we were bothered at - yelled at to come and get your hair braided, etc., but was still enjoyed.
We would definitely recommend Celebrity to anyone thinking of cruising, as a matter of fact, we are already booked on the Summit in January!
