Major Disappointment

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Favorite part of the cruise was the included drink package.  Food and service was mediocre at best. Some meals were literally inedible, and staff ran around totally stressed and disorganized. Celebrity used to have a reputation for great food and pampered service, but obvious lacking. I suspect cost-cutting. There could be no other excuse.

Although the weather was iffy at times,being with family was worth the weather. The ship offered something for everyone, fabulous food, beautiful accommodations and common areas and one of the friendliest Crews we've experienced in our 10 cruises.

Thanksgiving Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This was my 66th cruise and 4th on Celebrity. I was very disappointed in the cruise . The ship was not as elegant as others, taking formal night away was a poor decision did not sit well with myself and several others I met on the ship who were commenting about it and brought formal attire with them, Also,  having no Caribbean music at all which sets the mood when at least sailing out of port and playing top 40 songs instead takes away from the cruise experience. The food overall was about a 7 on a scale of 1-10 for both the cafe and the dining room and the Cruise Director was a joke. This was my sisters first cruise and definitely not up to what I had been telling her about cruising. We also had issues in the dining room with our seating it took a couple of nights to get it right and at best the seating was just okay. Luckily this was not my first cruise but it left me with a different outlook on Celebrity.

Fifteen plus days of delightful people, places and experience

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This cruise and the pre-trip in Florence was exceptional.  Starting with the hotel in Florence that was right around the corner from the Duomo and ending with our group farewell party, this experience was filled with good times, great stops and fun.  The ship was wonderful and Aqua Class service was delightful. The crew was attentive.  Our Stewart provided for our needs, sometimes before we knew we needed it.  The dining experiences were both yummy and relaxing.  The dining room staff were efficient and personable.  The ship amenities and activities were abundant. My favorite was knitting in the library with new found friends. The ship's Itinerary took me places in a style I can't wait to bookagain.  Oh, wait, I have!

A nice relaxing cruise

Always get a port side room (odd numbered) on the East-West crossing and a starboard side room (even numbered) on a West-East crossing. That way you have sun in your room every day.

 

Use the public transportation (bus, tram, train) in the ports and save yourself some money.

 

If you get an international plan on your Verizon phone, you can check your e-mail and text while at sea. You can also make calls. Just be sure your don't except your plan limits.

Great family time on a transatlantic

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Although is not the first time me and my wife sailed with celebrity this was our first transatlantic. It was a very nice experience, we love pretty much every minute we spent on the boat. There's only one little observation about the food quality, our previous experience on other celebrity boats were just slightly better, however overall everything was perfect.

If you have not experienced a Transatlantic cruise in your lifetime.....better sign up -  these are very popular itineraries.  We took the April 15, 2016 to Barcelona and November 5th Rome to Ft Lauderdale.  Celebrity has so many choices in how to spend your "sea" days when you do reach a port it's like....do we have to get off the ship today?  Both were wonderful itineries - what more could one ask for Barcelona and Rome in the same year!

Celebrity Silhouette Transatlantic Cruise - Nov. 2016

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our favorite part of the cruise were the 9 relaxing days at sea.  The weather was beautiful and the seas were calm.  Ports of call were great, the food was excellent and the entertainment was spectacular.  Most cruisers on board were not first time cruisers and many had done previous Trans Atlantic cruises before.  We would definitely do this cruise again and also recommend this cruise to our friends.  This was also our third cruise on Silhouette.  It is a wonderful ship.

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.
