Updated: Nov 17


blue water, blue sky, 6 celebrity cruises ships

Celebrity Summit is a beautiful, timeless cruise ship. There are many reasons why you do want to consider her for your next cruise vacation.


In this article, I’m sharing information about her last refurbishment, FAQs with helpful links, and an invitation to a special sailing:

Celebrity Summit Refurbishment

Celebrity Summit may have an older birth year, but she should not be dismissed as an “old ship.” If you last sailed on her early in her career, you’ll likely not recognize her now.


Celebrity Cruises committed to “The Celebrity Revolution” just before Covid-19 struck. It went far deeper than reconditioning ships with new carpets and other soft goods, updating accommodations and public areas’ decors, and other upgrades normally done with a partial or extensive refurbishment.


This was an entire commitment that started when Celebrity Cruises introduced the ocean-cruising Celebrity Edge and the beautiful 100-guest Celebrity Flora that sails to the Galapagos Islands. They seemed to be the inspiration for bringing the entire fleet- whether the ships were new builds or rebuilds of existing ships to a philosophy of “modern luxury.”


In fact, she fits beautifully with Celebrity’s newer tagline, “Relaxed Luxury,” which refers to the line’s ships being relaxed luxury resorts at sea.


You can expect the premium “Cashmere mattresses,” the addition of AquaClass cabins, and the reimagined Michael’s Club which is now The Retreat Lounge for suite guests, along with a sunbathing area there.


There’s so much that’s changed that I think the best way to share the new experiences is what you can see here instead of what I can even describe.

Celebrity Summit Special Invitation


I saw a unique Western Hemisphere itinerary. It had the rareness of a repositioning cruise, but with the convenience of being a “closed loop” cruise. Closed loop means roundtrip from the port as opposed to starting in one port and ending in another. Check this out:


Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Summit

May 6 - 15, 2023


Roundtrip from Cape Liberty / Bayonne, NJ to:


Newport, RI * Martha's Vineyard, MA * Charleston, SC

PLUS:

TWO Days in Bermuda * Three Days at Sea



I'm excited about sailing on this itinerary. And I'm inviting you to join me!



Would you like to visit these ports and enjoy your relaxed luxury at sea aboard Celebrity Summit? I’m inviting our existing clients as well as those who would like to book and become our clients to join this neat sailing.
