Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Summit
Join your bear buddies and friends on remarkable and memorable BearCruise to Southern Caribbean aboard on our favorite ship, the Celebrity Summit sailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Explore the best of the Southern Caribbean with BearCruise as we sail to five stunning islands. Exotic adventures, from friending flamingos in Bonaire to conquering the Hato Caves of Curacao. Enjoy the very best that Southern Caribbean has to offer on Gay Bears Caribbean cruise. This cruise inspires a feeling of getting away...way away.
On a Caribbean cruise, life's a beach—actually hundreds—some long and straight, some tucked between cliffs, some brilliant white, some volcanic black. But our Caribbean cruises are more than beaches.
Travel deeper into the Caribbean on the road less traveled to discover exotic landscapes brimming with natural, unspoiled beauty and unique plant and animal species native to the region. Imagine aquamarine seas ablaze with brightly colored coral reefs and schools of technicolor fish, breathtaking national parks, botanical gardens and world-renowned beaches.
In San Juan, discover a powerful 16th-century Spanish fortification now grown into a major U.S. city. Stroll the cobblestone streets. Hear the rhythmic salsa. Smell the roasting pork.
Just off the coast of South America, our Southern Caribbean cruises visit the Dutch islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao. You'll find charming cafés, galleries, and a 17th-century fort in Willemstad, the traditional Dutch cityscape painted in bright Caribbean colors.
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.

Navigate through the tunnels, dungeons, and barrack of San Cristobal, San Felipe del Morro, San Juan de las Cruz, and the city walls. Stroll the blue-toned cobblestone streets and uncover various UNESCO sites, museums, historic churches, restaurants and much more along the way.

Explore French and English colonial architecture, breathtaking beaches, and lush landscapes beneath soaring mountain peaks.

While at sea, take the time to recharge before the next adventure. Lounge by the pool, be spoiled at the spa, taste the delicacies or explore the venues on-board, until we arrive at the next amazing destination.
Day 4 - Kralendijk, Bonaire
Kralendijk is the sleepy capital of Bonaire, an island in the Dutch Antilles. Kralendijk is lined with delightfully pastel stucco houses, in pinks, oranges and lime greens. Famous for its diving, the lively world under the sea is the allure of this laidback island. The island is surrounded by a marine park that starts at the beach and extends 200 feet in depth and covers its entire coastline. Cruise to Bonaire also offer such treats as flamingos, hiking and the only barefoot casino in the Caribbean. Head downtown to the Rincon section for a great selection of restaurants with menus offering authentic local fare, like the Dutch snack, Frikandel, a deep-fried sausage or the Creole gumbo stew called Yambo.
Day 5 - Oranjestad, Aruba
The capital of Aruba is made for walking. Browse the candy-colored townhouses, architectural details, and open-air patios that define this charming Dutch community. Gentle trade winds tame the Caribbean sun, shoo the infrequent rain, and maintain the perfect conditions for windsurfing and kiteboarding. When it’s beach time, dig your toes into the soft white sand and soak your skin in the warm Caribbean water. After lounging awhile, find spas, restaurants, and bars just steps away. Divers and snorkelers flock to cruise to Aruba for its vibrant coral reefs, neon tropical fish, and eerie old shipwrecks. With just a mask and snorkel, you can watch the fish dart in and out of Antilla, a major wreck. Board a catamaran for a peaceful day of sailing and snorkeling, recharging with a barbecue lunch at Pelican Pier on Palm Beach.
Day 6 - Willemstad, Curacao
Experience a traditional Dutch cityscape painted in distinctly Caribbean colors. You'll want to stroll the magnificent waterfront, admire the colonial buildings, and explore the backstreet cafés, shops, museums, and galleries of Willemstad. Visit 17th-century Fort Amsterdam in the historic area, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Swim with charming, clever dolphins—an unforgettable experience—or go below the surface on a reef dive. View otherworldly stalactites and stalagmites inside Hato Caves and take a trolley tour to learn about Willemstad’s landmarks.
After a day of discovery, sit back, relax, and watch the sun set over a glass of traditional blue curaçao. Landhuis Chobolobo, a 19th-century historic mansion you can tour, is home to the famous liqueur.
