Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Summit Review

Celebrity Summit's 2019 Refit - Lounges, Staterooms & Dining Upgrades.

Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Summit is turning heads after completing a dramatic transformation. The ship’s revitalization is the next chapter of THE CELEBRITY REVOLUTION, Celebrity Cruises’ extensive modernization effort, with more than $500-million in upgrades across the fleet.

The all-new Celebrity Summit’s revolutionary enhancements include:

  • Completely redesigned staterooms and suites
  • The addition of The Retreat for suite guests, with exclusive new sun-deck and redesigned lounge
  • Stunningly re-imagined restaurants, bars and lounges
  • Fully redesigned spa and casino

“Celebrity Summit is one of the most popular ships in the Celebrity Cruises fleet and we’re excited to share the revolutionized design with the world,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises. “Celebrity Summit is better than she’s ever been – with modernized spaces and exciting new experiences, and she’s the first of our ships to feature our partnerships with American Ballet Theatre and Chef Daniel Boulud.”

“Nearly every space on Celebrity Summit has been modernized, with attention paid to the smallest detail,” said Brian Abel, Senior Vice President, Hotel Operations, Celebrity Cruises. “We couldn’t be more proud of the work that our teams have done for Summit’s ship’s ‘Revolution’ and the months of hard work leading up to this moment.”

Celebrity Summit’s bow-to-stern transformation began on February 17, 2019, in Freeport, Grand Bahama. It spent a total of 31 days in the skilled hands of thousands of engineers, architects, artisans, designers, contractors and members of the Celebrity team who collaborated to ensure flawless execution of the ship’s dramatic modernization.

Celebrity Summit 2020 Itineraries

Modernized and eager to travel, Celebrity Summit will kick off her North American season of sailings with a completely new program. She’ll expand her itineraries to visit 19 destinations and 7 countries – both marking new milestones – and bring travelers to Greenland for the first time, along with a Statue of Liberty experience. She’ll stay for more than 10 hours in port at a record 56 stops, docking in 39 of those ports for more than 12 hours. Travelers have never had so many choices and chances to explore beyond her decks.

New 10-night cruises will start the summer, bringing travelers south to historic Charleston, S.C. and to the British charm of Bermuda – the perfect warm-weather escape. Another seven-night itinerary to Bermuda will include a new stop in Newport, R.I., and an up-close experience with Lady Liberty herself as the ship circles Liberty Island and sails out on her way to the pink sands of Bermuda. As one of the most popular tourist sites in the United States, the Statue of Liberty is a definite must-see – and from the top decks of Celebrity Summit, the views are exceptional.

In August, Celebrity Summit will offer new opportunities to travel between North America and Europe with two, 14-night sailings from Cape Liberty to Dublin and then from Dublin to Boston. Travelers will experience new ports of Prins Christian Sund and Qaqortoq, Greenland, offering a once-in-a-lifetime experience where floating icebergs and frolicking whales will mystify guests in the arctic Riviera.

Following these exciting summer sailings, Celebrity Summit will settle in Boston, her new homeport, and offer 12-night Canada and New England itineraries for the fall season.
