Cruised Infinity to Hawaii (R/T San Diego) in October and it was wonderful...a bit cool first two days out and last two back, but wonderful. It's a great mix of four sea days/five port days/four sea days.
Lucky Duck! Took the Infinity twice on that itinerary, last time in October (see review section). It's the most relaxing and enjoyable itinerary out there. This fall we are going to try the Radiance on the same itinerary. Weather is great--first day or so out and last in are a bit windy and cool, but beyond that--Paradise! Have a great cruise.
My husband and I are also sailing on the Summit to Hawaii the end of September. I found out today through cruising Celebrity's website that our itinerary has changed. Were you aware that we are no longer stopping in Kauai? My travel agent told me this is because of the recent floods. We are bummed! We sailed on the repositioning cruise of the Connie last November from New Jersey to San Juan and had a WONDERFUL time! We are truly looking forward to sailing on the Summit!
Hi there, we are also going on this itinerary and just heard from my TA today, $50 is very little! But can't wait to go!! This trip is costing us over $8000 so we are going back to Celebrity via the TA, I will see what they say!
Good luck with your TA! I know we all take chances with the itinerary when we book a cruise but there was an excursion in Kaui that we were REALLY looking forward to taking. I know it must be especially painful for you after spending so much money. Good luck to you!
WE are going to hawaii on Summitt in September, also. Can't wait, that is for sure. I have a concern. How choppy is the sea? How big are the waves? I sound like a landlubber, but I want to know. Any advice?
We have taken the Hawaii cruise roundtrip five times. The weather and seas
have been different on each occasion, but its better to be prepared. Rough
seas are not as bad, at least for me, than rolling ones they seem to bother
me the most. Our trip last October to Hawaii was relatively calm just a few
days that we considered uncomfortable.
You'll enjoy the Summit a truly wonderful ship with lots of amenities and
terrific food. Enjoy to outside elevators too....
How was your trip on Summit and how did you like the ship? I hope it was wonderful. We are booked for Dec 9th cruise on Summit. It's CC on Panarama deck 8 room 8158. It's our first cruise with a balcony so I hope it's as great as I hope. We have never sailed on the Summit before just Infinity so would appreciate any info about the ship and room 8158 deck 8 if anyone has had experience there. Thanks for any info. Keep on cruising.
The Summit is a wonderful ship with great staff. The glass elevators are amazing. We had one of our best trips ever to Hawaii(pre earthquake). If you can, I suggest you eat at the Normandie. It was wonderful. Have a great trip.
We did this cruise on Summit in Jan 06. We agree with other posters who said that Summit is a wonderful ship and that dining in the Normandie Restaurant is a wonderful experience. We ate there three times on that cruise.
We experienced very choppy seas out of LA. Dollie was caught off balance and took a fall. She suffered some uncomfortable bruising. Thereafter, we held on to the handrails in the hallways when we felt that choppiness.
We hope that you get a good view of the volcanic action at Kilauea. The night that we sailed by we did not see the lava flow. The explanation given to us was that the lava was flowing through tubes that night rather than on the surface. We hope that you have better luck.
Thanks for sharing about your cruise. So sorry about Dollies fall and hope it healed quickly. Thanks for warning about choppy seas and to hold on to the hand rails. This is our second cruise to Hawaii, first was on Island Princess. That was a wonderful cruise and the sea was quite smooth. I was wondering about the Normandie Restaurant. Do we need to make reservations to dine there.
