compared to the last time we cruised on Celebrity Solstice,  service and quality of food has declined quite a bit.  Felt that since tips were already added to our fare, staff was not eager to go the extra mile. This time Celebrity did not exceed our expectations

Silouette is Top Rate!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

My wife and I had a wonderful time on Celebrity Silhouette!! The veranda stateroom, the FANTASTIC dining, the great entertainment, the ship itself would be hard to improve upon! This is a cruise especially for adults. It could not fit us better. The crew and staff were the best. We WILL BE on Celebrity again!

Anniversary Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

We booked the flight and the cruise together.  The flight down was canceled and we barely made the boat.  Once this bit of drama was over, the cruise was relaxing and we were pampered.  When we got to the cabin, a chilled bottle of champagne was waiting for us.  The evening of our anniversary, the waiter presented us with a cake.  (we did not mention our anniversary other than at time of booking).  We had two days at sea which I found quite relaxing.  We took excursions at three out of the four ports that we visited.  I enjoyed the excursions, but I found that they were a little slow initially getting things underway.  We waited in the hot sun on one for nearly 30 minutes for transportation. The nightly entertainment was excellent on most evenings.  (Only one evening I would rate as just fair) The food was good, but not exceptional.  The presentation and service were excellent. I found the entire crew to be very helpful and accommodating.  Overall, it was enjoyable and I would definitely book Celebrity again.

OK Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

Enjoyed cruise.  Food was reasonably good.  Entertainment was not great, but adequate.  Cost-cutting was apparent:  Chocolates on pillow just one night now.  No whole Lobster in MDR, but half of a tail!  Used to get carafe of wine.  No more!  Celebrity cruise 2 years ago:  Better food, entertainment, etc.  But, we still had a nice get-a-way.

Small cabin, good food and good service.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date: Dec 28, 2014

We found our Aqua class cabin to be small with not enough closet or draw space. Since we were on a 7 day warm weather cruise it was ok but would not have felt that way on a longer cruise where warmer clothing was required.  We had dinner every night in Blue and the food and service were first class.  Our cabin attendants were also excellent.  Were always able to find comfortable seating in the solarium or at the pool.  We have been to the Caribean many times so the ports were not important nor were they interesting.  We tendered at Grand Cayman and it took us 2 1/2 hours to get off the ship.

First time cruising with Celebrity

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date: Dec 14, 2014

The Silhouette is beautiful. Our cabin with balcony nice. It could use a little more storage. Room attendants spot on. Dining attendants excellent. Grand dining room food a little above average. We ate lunch and breakfast in their café version buffet. Food was ok. We didn't do any specialty restaurants,too expensive. At $30 and up per person we stuck with dining room. Entertainment  in auditorium at night was average. At start of cruise captain announced we couldn't reach top speed. Little did we know how much that would affect. We were late for every port by at least an hour. We did three excursions. Mayan ruins and beach break on Cozumel. Mayan ruins are interesting but boring after an hour. Guide was knowledgeable. Tour of Cozumel revealed mostly jungle. Beach break was too short and no real changing rooms. There was a small restaurant and bar there. Help was eager to serve. Best of Jamaica excursion, ship recommended was a complete rip off at $110 per person. The excursion lasted 7 hours,3 and a half hours riding in the van back and forth from Dunn's Falls. The falls are nice to see but dangerous to walk in.Hour and a half later after you exit thru flea market and get almost mauled you get taken to town,for more shopping at over priced tee shirt shops. Thirty minutes later to a run down resort for inedible lunch and over priced drinks. After twenty minutes on the beach there and not going in the brown ocean from too much rain we were picked up in a modified catamaran. Twenty minute ride to drop off point,and then one hour ride back to pier. Last excursion in Ft. Lauderdale to Sawgrass Mill  mall was misleading as well. We were supposed to be dropped off in front of Saks to shop for 3 and a half hours. Instead because it was a Sunday and the mall didn't open until 11 we were dropped off at Target. At 1:30 we were picked up and taken to airport. This was our seventh cruise and we expected more from Celebrity. We have never been to Grand Cayman and still haven't been due to the very poor tendering schedule. We were scheduled to arrive at 930am.They had passengers line up for numbers to get tendered.The process didn't start until almost 12. Our number was called at 1:35. We decided not to bother for lack of time and disappointment. So to sum up,ship crew and staff excellent.Everything else needs work.

Great week away.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date: Dec 14, 2014

The ship was nicely appointed and in very good condition.

Our cabin was of adequate size, and the room steward did a very nice job throughout the week.  We were located in the back of the ship in Concierge Class - - very quiet and peaceful.

The dining was good and better than the competitive cruise lines.

Overall a very nice break from the daily grind.

Silhouette

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date: Dec 14, 2014

Embarkation at Ft. Lauderdale was hectic but efficient - ship was beautiful = Christmas decorations very nice - as soon as I got on board requested valet service for luggage upon disembarkation - dining room we had table for two =- never again -= you are pushed up to another table for two so this becomes table for two or four or six - went two nights at the dining room - long waits because they are handling large tables first - gave up and did the buffet rest of the trip. Entertainment at the theater was great for two nights = rest of the time a bore with the same singers and dancers doing the same routines - did the two specialty shows and bypassed the so called "Broadway Extravagances"" have seen these routines over and over again. Port at Haiti was very small but very beautiful  - Grand Cayman required a tender - that was ok - Jamaica and Cozumel ok - then we came to the disembarkation - waited for my tags for valet service - never came - went down to Guest Services and was told thatySouthwest had denied the service - who knows for what reason - suggested maybe because of senior fare - or whatever - so had to get luggage tags and face the Ft. Lauderdale airport for flight home - airport was a nightmare - lines were outside the building and down the sidewalk - juggling two large suitcases - husband in wheelchair - jackets - tickets - and whatever else - just could not handle this - we are two seniors in our late eighties so this is a problem - finally got desperate and went inside with my luggage and just went up to a man in a red shirt and told him he had to please help me with the boarding passes and getting myself and husband to the gate - he was wonderful - took care of us with the paperwork and got someone to get a wheelchair to take us up to security and thru to the gate. This airport for the amount of cruise ships that come in is way too small -= and I learned that three more cruise ships are due for next year - it is a nightmare now with two more it will become something else. I recommend that if anyone is taking the Silhouette and need help at Guest Services to ask for Abigail - she is a credit to this company and knows her job and will do anything to resolve your problem---- we were fortunate that we met many wonderful people on this cruise - have taken about seven others and as far as the people on the cruise this one was the best. We had balcony 8248 - no complaints as far as the room goes - buffet was good - great variety - dining room not for me and spoke to others who said they did it once or twice and ended up at the buffet in the evening. Haiti as I said was very small - but just a beautiful little port - not much there - few buildings - very small beach - but from what I heard from others beautiful snorkeling.

Celebrity is not all the upgraded cruise line I thought it was

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date: Dec 07, 2014

This has been my 9th cruise, and out of nine I rate this experience 8th.  Celebrity is supposed to be the upgrade of Royal Carribbean, I found the exact opposite.  Food in dining room was the worst I've ever experienced on a cruise ship....I was served a steak I wouldn't give my dog, soup with no taste at all.  Murano upgrade restaurant was not all like on a previous ship, Tuscan Grill was excellent....Impossible to get a hot coffee beverage at any restaurant or dining room.....Longest wait I ever had getting back on the ship in puerto rico......Ship had a bad engine causing swaying back and forth all 7 days....Why did you not have this fixed?????  Older people on this ship and if we wanted a towel on the upper pool level we had to walk downstairs and back up for a towel....Cruise director was joke, I'm sure you can afford someone experienced....Boring during the day with not much on the schedule.......Went to 3 shows, 2 put me sleep and I left, thats how bad they were....I expected 1st class all the way and received the ecact opposite.....Celebrity is not even close the positive experience I had with royal carribbean, Norweign and princess lines, shame on you!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get the drink package you will use it. For the ports get out of the cruise shopping areas and see the islands. For PR see old city, For St Martin see the whole island, for St Thomas (SEE ST JOHN). If you bring kids they have plenty to do too so you can enjoy your cruise.

Try the different bars as they have different feels. Unless you are really a big drinker the drink packages are not worth it.

Try and reserve a window table at the main Cuvee Restaurant , you will not regret this opportunity, you can do you cruise reservation with celebrity cruise online at least six months before.
