The pinnacle of top class cruising
Celebrity Summit, which entered service in November 2001, leaves you feeling on top of the world.
Large in size yet intimately elegant in ambience, Celebrity Summit - the third of four ships in Celebrity’s Millennium-class fleet alongside Celebrity Costellation, Celebrity Infinity and Celebrity Millennium - boasts all of the services and amenities that have made Celebrity the preferred choice of avid cruisers around the world.
And Celebrity continued its distinctive tradition of paying tribute to grand, historic ocean liners with Summit’s specialty restaurant Normandie, featuring original panelling and various artifacts from the the ship that was considered the foremost ocean liner of the 1930s.
Normandie was the industry’s first 1,000ft liner, the first French Line vessel to win the coveted Blue Riband, the North Atlantic’s prize for speed, and the first to take the chic “arts decoratifs” - now known as art deco - design style to sea.
On Summit, the 134-guest specialty restaurant - aptly named “The Normandie” - recalls the art deco design of the original Normandie’s scheme, with a dining venue divided by a circular colonnade displaying two sets of four large, gold-lacquered panels from the stylish smoking room on the original Normandie. Celebrity obtained the panels at auction at Christie’s.
The restaurant provides guests with an elegant, alternative dining experience created by Celebrity’s longtime culinary consultant, Master Chef Michel Roux.
The $350-million Summit, built at Chantiers de l’Atlantique in St Nazaire, France, where the original Normandie was built, presented the industry’s largest luxury suites and a wealth of ocean views - 80 per cent of the staterooms have an ocean view, and 74 per cent of those will have verandas.
