Cruise to San Juan, Puerto Rico Aboard Celebrity Cruises – Celebrity Summit
By Vivian Nieves
Our adventure began late afternoon Friday March 22, 2019, as we headed to the airport. Once we entered the terminal, we walked to The Retreat Suite Class signage. That’s when my eyes lit up and I immediately knew this was going to be an amazing trip on the Celebrity Summit! Entering our suite was a moment I will never forget! The room was absolutely stunning with light grey wood panels and navy and white decor throughout the suite. Our Celebrity Summit Suite was number 9096. We walked into an enormous living room/seating area with a mini table that sat 4 people, a vanity area and a balcony with plenty of seating space.
We dropped off our bags and immediately began to explore the ship and all it had to offer. We made our way up to the Oceanview Cafe. There was an enormous selection of traditional Puerto Rican food and other options as well. I could not decide between the selections of tuna ceviche served inside a coconut shell, Octopus ceviche and Salmon ceviche. After grabbing some lunch, we went to view a variety of accommodations offered. The first room was a Sky Suite, number 9111. The bathroom decor was grey and white marble with the bed set in the middle of the room and a balcony view. Next, aslo on deck 9, cabin 9073. This was an Aqua Class cabin that has full access to the Persian Garden, a relaxation area within the Canyon Ranch Spa, and their own private dining area, the restaurant Blu. Upgraded amenities included cashmere bedding and bathroom spa amenities. The shower head design located in the bathroom was pretty cool. It was designed to look like an optical illusion, it appeared as a silver and round ring opening that was flat and allowed the water to trickle from around the edges of the ring. It resembled a magnifying glass without the glass! The next cabin on deck 9, was 9173, a Verandah stateroom. All accommodations boasted new patio furniture and a pre-revolution photo were included in all of the staterooms.
