Celebrity Summit emerged from a $75 million dry dock in March 2019 that updated its staterooms and suites, as well as a number of public spaces. This much-needed refresh was the first major update in more than a decade, which brought it in line with Celebrity’s popular Solstice class of ships. Summit was the second in Celebrity’s oldest ship class — which also includes Millennium (for which the class is named), Infinity, and Constellation — to complete the line’s $500-million, four-year “revolution.”
Summit now has a more contemporary look that borrows design cues from 2018’s Celebrity Edge. But, space and infrastructure create limitations, so this is no mini-Edge. Rather, the result is more subtly modern interior décor, and new exclusive venues for Suite Class guests, called The Retreat. There’s also a revamped approach to buffet dining in the Oceanview Café, which now includes 12 action stations and select à la minute preparation. Summit was also one of the first ships to offer menus by Michelin-starred culinary master Chef Daniel Boulud. These are offered both in Luminae, which is exclusive to suite guests, as well as the Chef’s Table experience, which is available to all passengers for an additional fee (reserve well in advance).
