Suite guests have exclusive access to the Retreat Sun Deck, which rivals any high-end resort. And the Retreat Lounge is a place for suite guests to go for complimentary beverages and gourmet bites.

Celebrity is setting an all-new course for diversity. The Summit had the privilege of being captained by the first American woman to ever command a cruise ship, Captain Kate McCue. And back in December 2014, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo was appointed President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, making her the first and only woman to lead one of Royal Caribbean’s cruise line brands. VACAYA is thrilled to partner with such a progressive industry leader!
FIRST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE AT SEA

CONNECT. LAUGH. PLAY.
Our journey begins in beautiful San Juan! VACAYA traditions are already starting to take shape and we’ll celebrate our coming together tonight in fun new ways. After all, that’s what these vacations are all about – connecting with old friends and making countless new ones, all the while having endless fun.
LIVE. LOVE. DANCE.
Our first day at sea gives you the chance to soak in the Caribbean sunshine while we all celebrate Valentine’s Day together! Our first V-Dance of the week will be this afternoon and you can be sure it’ll give you endless ways to connect with fellow guests.
RELAX. INDULGE. FROLIC.
Colorful St. John’s is a welcoming paradise and home to 365 white sandy beaches and kitschy beach bars around every corner.
Like any tropical destination, St. John’s is perfect for lounging beachside, snorkeling and diving, or hiking to see Fort Barrington’s watchful eye overlooking the city. Historic sites like Fort James and St. John’s Cathedral make for fantastic tours, leaving plenty of time in your day for tasty Caribbean cuisine and seafood, where the fresh catches of the day rule the local menus.
EXPLORE. UNWIND. FEAST.
You’ll quickly be swept up by Fort-de-France’s energy and natural beauty, which alternates between crystal-blue waters and laid-back beaches to dense, tropical rainforest. Whether you’re touring a distillery and sipping authentic local rum or hiking the lush trails of Martinique Natural Regional Park, the Fort-de-France area offers just enough to do without being overwhelmed by the options.
Feeling like doing nothing? Set up on the beach with an umbrella. Want to step back in time to French colonial occupation in the Caribbean? Walk the expertly-preserved grounds of the ruins of Chateau Dubuc. Hungry for Creole cuisine, crab cakes, or octopus stew? Martinique’s foodie scene is adventurous without being too frou-frou. Whatever your mood, Martinique will rise to meet you there.
DISCOVER. CHILL. SHINE.
Saint Lucia offers a different side of the Caribbean than you’ve ever seen before. Castries is a walkable, bustling town. Head to Derek Walcott Square to relax after exploring the town, and don’t miss the historic cathedrals in the heart of the city. Of course, you have to try traditional Saint Lucian food, including saltfish and green banana, the region’s signature dish.
Saint Lucia itself is sprawling and mountainous, protected yet easily explorable. Downtown Castries will easily fill your day, but you could also venture further inland for thrills and outdoor adventures, like hiking one of the volcanic Pitons, a spire-like mountain promising incredible views of Saint Lucia from the summit. Take a mud bath at Sulphur Spring Park, or simply swim and snorkel at Pigeon Island National Park or the beautiful Reduit Beach.
COLORFUL. HISTORIC. LAID BACK.
We’ll dock in Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, and an important port city in the Southern Caribbean. What’s not to love about Barbados? Miles of sandy beaches, turquoise island waters, and an abundance of plantations and historic sites to tour mean you’ll find plenty to occupy your time here. Be sure to try traditional Barbadian dishes like cou cou and macaroni pie, and make time to enjoy a rum tasting or distillery tour.
Be captivated by protected species like the West African green monkey at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve or head east to Bathsheba for plentiful chances to snorkel, surf, and dive.
SAVOR. SOAR. ENJOY.
Our final day at sea promises to be one to remember. Soak up those last rays of sunshine, get that much-needed massage you’ve been putting off, or join your playmates around the pool for our final V-Dance of the week. However you choose to spend your day, you’ll do it surrounded by 2000+ new friends.
We say “so long” today, but it’s never goodbye for long. Another adventure lies just around the corner. We’ll see you again soon! If you’re flying out from SJU today, we recommend flights at 12pm Noon or later.
