Dining truly does take centre stage when travelling on the Celebrity Summit, a line that is truly renowned as a ‘foodie favourite’. As well as experiencing the divine in terms of cuisine, there are also opportunities to be taught a wine-matching masterclass from the ship’s sommelier - the definition of sophistication. There are 10 dining venues to choose from, many exclusive to specific accommodation, as well as room service options and the incredible Chef’s Table private dining experience.
There are two speciality restaurants aboard the Celebrity Summit. Qsine is a sleek, inventive venue that aims to provide a fully immersive and interactive dining experience. The key here is creativity, with artful chefs taking global classics and giving them an imaginative twist. The menu is designed for social dining, with the menu delivered via an iPad and dishes prepared with groups in mind.
The second specialist restaurant is Tuscan Grill, a traditional steakhouse delivering sensational Italian cuisine. Savour fresh pastas and matured, sumptuous, dry-aged steak. The setting reflects both classic and modern features, with dark woods and tight leather seating creating a relaxed, Tuscan-inspired ambience. Begin with fresh, vibrant dishes of carpaccio and calamari, before moving on traditional gnocchi and beef dishes.
A new feature of Celebrity cruises is the innovative Taste of Film dining experience. A multi-sensory extravaganza that takes place atop the stunning new Rooftop Terrace, expect film inspired dishes that are delivered alongside the movie, to perfectly complement a taste of the story you are experiencing.
For more casual buffet-style dining, the Oceanview Café serves a delicious blend of carved meats, made to order omelettes and internationally inspired dishes. The views are spectacular, with floor-to-ceiling windows perfectly framing the vast expanse of water that surrounds you. The Pool Grill too is another less formal eatery, perfect for those fresh from exertions in the pool. Expect burgers, fries and waffles, all cooked to the high standard you would expect.
Entertainment aboard the Summit takes place throughout the day and night. From traveller’s classics, such as bingo and trivia quizzes, to classes that teach the finer points of cookery and mixology, there is much to do during the daytime hours. There is also a free gallery tour, with an opportunity to meet executive chefs and dining staff and a number of lectures, workshops and activities to keep you entertained.
There is also a casino aboard the Summit, located in the Grand Foyer. The Fortunes Casino offers a range of slot-machines and table games, including blackjack, poker and roulette.
As the evening draws in, the two-storey Celebrity Theatre will play host to major musical productions as well as comedy and magic shows. iMagic is an innovative, ground-breaking concept that explores the tricks performed by history’s greatest and gives them a technological update. Expect a combination of childish wonderment and technical excellence.
There are several bars and lounges to choose from, for a more relaxed afternoon or evening. These range from the late night, dance-inspired Revelations Lounge, to the Cellarmasters wine bar, hosted by a knowledgeable bartender eager to impart his wisdom.
The Canyon Ranch is the perfect spot to relax and rejuvenate. The perfect combination of modern wellness spa and exceptional beauty salon, lose yourself to tranquillity and serenity as you immerse yourself in this stunning setting. Treatments range from manicures and pedicures, to massages and facials.
A Fitness Centre is also located nearby, complete with a stunning sea view for extra motivation. Feel energised thanks to modern treadmills, ellipticals and stationary bikes. Take advantage of the full weight area. Classes here include pilates, spinning, yoga and CrossFit and you can even take inspiration from a personal trainer or fitness consultant to maximise your workout.
Kids aboard the Celebrity Summit are in for a treat, with a number of age-specific activities delivered throughout your journey. Each child will be placed into a different category, to ensure they receive an appropriate level of stimulation for their age; Shipmates (ages 3-5), Cadets (ages 6-8), Ensigns (ages 9-11), Junior Teens (ages 12-14) and Senior Teens (ages 15-17).
Shipmates and Cadets are based in the Fun Factory, with singing, dancing and fun activities throughout the day. X Club is exclusively for teens, with a Scratch DJ Academy held on every cruise, and iTake giving teens GoPro cameras to make their own videos and edit them in the ship's iLounge. Other teen programs include football challenges, Ping-Pong tournaments, a talent show and dance party, scavenger hunts and flash mob dancing.
There is a basketball court located of the ship, as well as a volleyball court. There is often an ‘officers vs passengers’ game that takes place, pitting these two competitive teams against one another for the enjoyment of other guests. There are ping-pong tables scattered throughout the ship and a jogging track on Deck 11. Coincidently, 11 laps of this track equate to 1 mile, keeping you fully up to date with your progress.
The Celebrity Summit has two outdoor pools; one a shallower, family pool and the other a deeper adult-only area. To compliment these saltwater swimming areas, there are also four whirlpools that surround the pool area and several incredibly comfortable loungers available to passengers wishing to soak up the sunshine. There is also an indoor thalassotherapy pool inside a covered solarium. Open throughout the day, this peaceful, secluded spot is a great way to escape from the more exciting and boisterous outside pools.
