Come join our intimate and super-friendly group of gay guys, daddies, bears, admirers and friends cruising to a part of the Caribbean often missed: the far eastern islands. We'll sail from exotic Puerto Rico to Antigua, St Lucia, St Maarten, St Thomas, Tortola and Barbados. This cruise is all about the islands! But trust us, when you're on board you'll love the ship, too - you'll be on Celebrity Summit, which had a complete overhaul just a few years ago! Make your vacation complete with a few days before or after in Puerto Rico - one of our favorite Caribbean islands!
The Celebrity Summit will be our home away from home for this seven night sailing. Celebrity is known for a contemporary design, international cuisine, gracious service, and very comfortable cabins. Lay poolside with a favorite beverage, exercise in the gym followed by a relaxing sauna, enjoy Las Vegas style revue shows, and too much more to list here.
The island of Puerto Rico pulsates with music and color. Embracing the best of its Spanish and American influences, the culture exudes confidence and joy. You’ll find imposing 16th-century fortresses and vibrant street art, as well as a rich culinary scene, rolling coffee plantations, and rum distilleries. Everywhere you go, you’ll be captivated by music, from the sensual beat of salsa to cumbia, merengue, and the local genre, bomba.
Cruise to and from Puerto Rico will reveal the island’s natural beauty, too. The dense rainforest and tumbling waterfalls of El Yunque National Park are an easy drive from San Juan, while at the Escambrón Marine Park, you can swim among sea turtles and colorful fish. There are beaches for sun-lovers and beaches for surfers, as well as hiking, kayaking, and zip-lining for the adventurous. Little wonder that the locals here seem so cheerful. Explore this enchanting island on a Caribbean Gay group cruise with Celebrity.
On a Southern Caribbean cruise immerse yourself in the laid-back charm and natural wonders that the islands are famous for. Hike through lush rainforests and marvel at the islands’ stunning coastlines. Zipline over verdant landscapes and explore deep underground caves. Discover the simple pleasures of rustic beach bars and unbelievably fresh seafood. Stroll on flawless beaches and get up close to the marine life that inhabits the surrounding seas.
In St. Lucia, trek The Pitons for panoramic views of sea and sand. Play with dolphins and sway to the sounds of a live steel pan band. Tour the largest rum distillery in the world in Barbados. Soak up the Southern Caribbean sun by day, and return to your Celebrity cruise ship each evening for globally inspired dining, thrilling entertainment, and luxuriously appointed accommodations. Your unforgettable Southern Caribbean vacation awaits.
Every detail has been elevated, every comfort refined.
Celebrity Summit takes you to some of the most incredible destinations on the globe, so it’s only fitting that she offers some of the best experiences at sea, too.
By night, head to the Martini Bar to enjoy a classic cocktail upon a real ice bar, while you watch the bartenders put on a high-energy show every night. The sophisticated atmosphere at Cellar Masters provides a more intimate venue – recline in deep leather seats and enjoy a menu of the finest beers, wines and more.
And now Celebrity Summit has been modernised as part of The Celebrity Revolution - a $500-million investment to take all of Celebrity Cruises ships to the edge. Stay in brand new staterooms, enjoy beautifully reimagined restaurants and lounges, and relax in the newly redesigned spa. For our Suite Class guests, we now also have The Retreat Sundeck and The Retreat Lounge in addition to our Suite Class restaurant Luminae. Discover all of this and more onboard Celebrity Summit.

Day 1 - San Juan, Puerto Rico
The fun begins the moment you board the Celebrity Summit — which has been designed from bow to stern for your fun and enjoyment. As we sail out of San Juan, we'll gather for a hosted Daddy Cruise® Party. Here, you'll meet your fellow cruisers and start making new friends right away. We’ll sail past El Moro, San Juan's guardian ancient fort, and into the Atlantic Ocean.
Day 2 - Philipsburg, St.Maarten
This is the smallest inhabited island divided by two countries in the world: Dutch and French. There are no border crossings but the difference between the islands will be quite obvious. The Dutch capital, Philipsburg, claims colonial architecture, historic buildings, wonderful shopping and sun-swept beaches. The French capital, Marigot, is filled with designer boutiques, sidewalk cafes and bistros and trendy art galleries. Wander through the charming streets and experience a taste of France! Venture out to a nearby butterfly farm where large mesh enclosures house a dazzling array of exotic butterflies in their natural, tropical setting. Or find yourself on the famous Orient Beach noted not only for the cool trade winds, light waves and sparkling sand, but the clothing-optional side for the truly natural experience!
Day 3 - St.Johns, Antigua
The largest of the British Leeward Islands, Antigua (pronounced an-tee-ga) boasts one of the Caribbean's most spectacular coastlines with secluded coves and sun drenched beaches. The island's rolling hills are dotted with stone sugar mills, relics from the bygone era when sugar was king. Historic Nelson's Dockyard, where Admiral Horatio Nelson quartered his fleet in 1784, attests to Antigua's long and colorful nautical history during colonial times. And St. John's, the island's bustling capital, offers visitors a wealth of boutiques, restaurants and pubs.
Day 4 - Castries, St.Lucia
St Lucia boasts the world’s only drive through volcano. How convenient is that?! Drive right up to the crater and view bubbling pools letting off odorous puffs of steam. Soufriere is the island’s oldest town and the birthplace of Napoleon’s Empress Josephine. Visit the marketplace with its colorful murals and gingerbread trim. Explore Diamond Botanical Gardens where waterfalls gush from the mouth of a volcano, mineral springs fill the baths with medicinal waters, and flora and fauna abound. From just about anywhere on the island, you’ll see the majestic twin peaks of the Pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They rise directly from the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Each mound, created from hardened lava, towers over 2,000 feet in the air.
Day 5 - Bridgetown, Barbados
Because Barbados is one of the few Caribbean islands colonized by a single nation, Bajans (that’s what they call themselves) describe their country as “more English than England sheself!” But look around and you’ll quickly see the difference: lush tropical fields meet a glistening azure sea. From underwater submarine tours to swimming with the sea turtles; from tours of the Sunbury Sugar Plantation to tours of Mount Gay Rum factory (I know, right?!); from climbing around Harrisons’ Cave (complete with caverns and underground waterfalls) to climbing up to Gun Hill Signal with its sweeping views of the entire island, Barbados will amaze and astound.
Day 6 - Roseau, Dominica
Dominica is the Caribbean's best kept secret. Its towering mountains, lush green forests and winding rivers and waterfalls are practically begging for exploration. Dominica attracts the adventurous eco-tourist that treasures authenticity while on vacation. The island is considered one of the most pristine and well-preserved spots in the Western Hemisphere. Whale watching, snorkeling, hiking and most other outdoor activities are musts here.
Day 7 - A Day at Sea!
After all this, you’ll be ready for a full day at sea! Relax, unwind and enjoy your vacation mode. Lounge on your private balcony or near one of the pools, or maybe even find a quiet nook to settle in with a book. Want to be more active on your day at sea? Play bingo, work out at the gym, watch a movie, dance all night, attend a cooking seminar, soak in a hot tub, watch a sunset (or a sunrise), play trivia games, sing along at the piano bar, do some wine tasting, check your email or surf the internet, grab a snack, watch live entertainment, get lucky in the casino, indulge in a spa treatment, catch the game in the sports bar, and on and on.
Day 8 - San Juan, Puerto Rico
>We sail back to Puerto Rico, arriving San Juan at dawn. Disembark today with great memories, great pictures, and new friends from your all-too-short vacation. You’ll quickly realize Puerto Rico’s capital city is the gay Caribbean destination you’ve been searching for. Rich in history & breathtakingly beautiful.
