Could not have asked for a better vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

First, for an early May cruise to the Baltic Capitals, we packed jackets and sweaters.  We had perfect weather for each of the six ports.  Rostock, Germany, was a sleepy but charming village.  We took a 20 minute train ride to Warnmuden, a delightful and picturesque fishing community.  Tallinn, Estonia, was the surprise; charming, ancient, quaint.  Don't miss the Seaplane Museum or the KGB Museum - both true gems.  In St. Petersburg we hired a State-authorized private tour company for the two days.  It seems that many others on the ship had several back-and-forth to the ship tours, a waste of time given the initial difficulties with their immigration system.  If you're in good physical shape, go private so you can see it all.  Helsinki, a relatively young town, was almost a disappointment after the opulence of St. Petersburg.  Stockholm has so much to offer but was the shortest port call.  If you see only one thing in Stockholm, be certain it is the Vasa Museum (but we did shake hands with the King, Queen, and President of Chile in a stroke of luck).  For Copenhagen, the final port, we used a HOHO Red Bus tour then a nice walk from the royal palace to the ship with a stop at the must-see Mermaid statue.

Celebrity Silhouette 4/23-Nancee & Bruce

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

The cruise was wonderful. It is a beautiful ship. Food in main dining room was good. Specialty restaurant's were better. When I first picked this cruise I wasn't

sure on the  ports. But they were very interesting and each one had something different to offer. Went to the Eskegov & Kronberg Castle. Rode the sandworm to the spit in Skagen. The whole town came out to greet the ship and they shot off cannons and the school band played in Fredericia, Denmark. Loved the Martini bar on the ship. Ended in Amsterdam going out to the tulip gardens and fields. Will cruise with Celebrity again.

TransAtlantic crossing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

This was our second crossing.  I am a big fan as we were able to completely disconnect from our electronic tethers.  It's amazing how quickly 8 days at sea can pass.  Celebrity ships are clean, modern, and designed so you can find your level of excitement or interaction.  It's hard to believe there were 2600 other passengers onboard. We are looking forward to our next cruise with Celebrity.  A big thank you our agent at who provided outstanding service and support.

A very successful cruise and most enjoyable

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

Our past cruise experience has been focussed on smaller ships. The Celebrity Silhouette proved conclusively that the bigger ships have a lot to offer and at a good quality level. We know that to be successful in this mass transit business you have to have good management. And this was truly reflected.

We will do it again!

Fabulous cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

Going transatlantic is so relaxing -- I read four books!  The Celebrity Silhouette is a beautiful ship, the service was excellent, the captain was really personable -- his morning announcement were hilarious!  The only thing that disappointed me was the casino policy -- on other ships, you earn points which can be turned in for cash at the end of the cruise (or any time, really), and after so many points, you earn free drinks in the casino.  This one had no such perks.  You earned points that appeared to be cash, but when I went to get my $46 the last day, I was informed that it could only be applied to a machine, not given back in cash.  Anyway, small complaint compared to the good time we had.

13 Night Capital Cities Transatlantic Cruise(Ft Lauderdale to Southampton

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

We really enjoyed the 13 night transatlantic cruise to Southampton leaving on April 10th.  The food was excellent.  The entertainment was good - the production nights (all 3) were well done but it would be better to have some music that you are familiar with.  The other entertainment was good.  The comedian on the first night was terrible and no one laughed but other than that it was fine.  We had one bad experience in that the local guide in Spain to Santiago had very poor English and I felt we wasted $140. on that.  But taken as a whole we would do it again.  It was very affordable and the balcony was not obstructed.  The staff on the ship was fabulous.

Fabulous trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

The cruise was     all or more than expected.  The service from all the employees was definitely 5 star.  The ship was very clean and kept up throughout the trip.  I enjoyed the lectures from the visiting speakers.  Their topics were very interesting to me.  For the most part, the food was good.  There was a variety on the menus and pleasantly presented.  I enjoyed the ports of call and the excursions that I took.

Disappointed

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

After a very good start in Ft Lauderdale, the boarding process being less than twenty minutes so a big plus for the shore based staff there. After a pleasant crossing of the Atlantic, upon reaching Lisbon I'm afraid things did get rather

unpleasant. We object to having to suffer continual noise from maintenance work while in port or at sea.

Also object at mid seventy years old to having to wait in line for 1hour 30 mins 

for our passports to be inspected, and not be given the opportunity to do so in the port of our destination. Celebrity were given the chance of showing us what they can do and have disappointed. Next year we will go back in January on Queen Victoria and return on April 13th on Independence of the Seas.

1st cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

Wonderful experience, but wish I had talked with some experienced cruisers.  There is so much to do and the time goes so quickly, but it is also very weather driven.  When you're planning heavily for outside activities you need backup plans although many of the inside activities were not of interest.  The food selection was outstanding and I tried many foods I've never eaten before. Finally, all the cruise staff I interacted with were wonderful.  I certainly plan to cruise again on Celebrity with all that I learned.

If you enjoy your drinks, upgrade to Premium Package, you won't regret it. Research all ports and plan ahead. This saves time, and you can be on your way instead of trying to decide once you have disembarked.

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.

Drink package is great and a must even if it is only soda and bottled water. Remember even the bottled water will cost you! Do the excursions and see the Islands, it is well worth it.
