This cruise itinerary was really nice; 9 port cities in 8 countries.  Ship was excellent (Celebrity Silhouette) - nice accommodations, excellent staff always looking to please, and pretty good (though not fabulous) food.  I would definitely sail on this ship again, and would recommend the "Scandinavia - Russia" itinerary.

Sailing with Celebrity was a real joy. Our oceanview cabin at the front of the ship was exceptional and really contributed to our comfort and enjoyment. The professional, caring staff made sure our needs were addressed. They were as good as any we've met before. The excellent meals and service in the restaurant were first class. The ship was beautiful.

The challenge was getting people off the ship when we arrived at our destinations. A significant amount of time was lost.

Please accept our appreciation for all your efforts.

Great itinerary

Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

The Celebrity Silhouette was nice and not too large. Balcony cabin was spacious, as is its bath. The food on board was what you would expect. It was good but not great. There were many eating options.

 

The average age on board was 50's, 60's, 70's. Very few kids or younger guests.

 

The itinerary was great, it was very port intensive. Some ports required tenders, others did not.

Nice taste of the Briish Isles however prepare for the cold and rain

Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

We left out of Amsterdam and 3 great days in Amsterdam before we left on our cruise.

Cabin:  We opt for the partially obstructed balcony cabin to have a balcony at a reduce rate.  However in the British Isles we seldom used it.  1.   It was cold a rainey, 2.  There were only 3 sea days out of 2 weeks.

The cabin was the exact same on all Solstice class ships.  So was the venues.

Cabin steward was great, as the dining staff. 

We ate mostly in the dining room when we could but on port days the dining room is closed for lunch.  So if you don't want to pay you must go the Ocean View Café or pay out at port.  The food in both the dining room and Ocean View was by far the worst than any Celebrity Cruise we have been on.  The soup had no substance at all.  I mean the Chicken noodle soup was ALL broth, vegetable soup all broth..  We talked to the staff but saw no improvement.

The excursions were OK. Most of the tour guides took you to the area showed you how to get around and left  especially if it was raining and the first week it rained every day.  You know the song by the Beatles Here comes the sun.  Well us Americans thought it referred to their love however it really means here comes the sun because they celebrate when the sun does shine!

The entertainment was hit and miss.  The magician was a joke most left.

Some we did not attend because to were to tired after a full day touring while at port. 

This is the first time we had the classic drink package because it was given to us as a promotion and I am glad we had it.  I just could not handle the ships water and thankful we got bottled water with the package.  I must say the bartenders were not very creative and since it seamed everyone had a drink package they really didn't try very hard.  We went to the sky lounge once for Elite evening and I could not even drink the drink they made.  Last time we went there.  This was a first.  This was the 5 solstice class ship that we had been on.

Overall it was fine.  I will never get tired of not having to cook and clean for an entire 2 weeks.

This was a great itinerary that fit our family's timing. Life on board the ship for these 12 days was fantastic! And the shore excursions to the various ports of call were fascinating!

This is the 2nd time that we travel on Celebrity having been on a marvelous cruise on the Reflection 2 years ago. Its sister ship, the Shilouette did not disappoint. We are a group of 13 including edleries and young children and the majority of them did not speak much English therefore finding a "user friendly" ship is of prime importance (in addition to the destinations). The ship is well kept, the staff curteous, helpful and very friendly! The quality and choices of food on board remain (in our opinion) the best amongst similar cruise liners. The "added perks" for Suite Class passengers were great value for money and the services impeccable and made the passengers felt valued. The only slight draw back being that it was obviously a very popular route and at a very popular time and the ship seems to be at full capacity, which makes the public area very crowded(and makes it seem a lot smaller than the Reflection) and the only cafe offering premium tea, coffe and cakes was full to its brim on all sea days. The food in the speciality restaurant were of good quality except for the Tuscan Grille where more attention could be paid to the ingredients (especially the fishes which tasted rather stalled).

The cruise was very enjoyable. The wait staff and bartenders were excellent and worked hard to meet all of your needs. Housekeeping did a great job refreshing the rooms on a daily basis. The food was excellent and the ship was very clean.

THE SERVICE AND CREW WERE GREAT BUT STOPS NEED MAJOR WORK

Verified Review

Ship: Celebrity Silhouette | Sail Date:

We enjoyed some of the stops but the hours in port were too short and the stops in Estonia, Germany and Helsinki left much to be desired.  They should be avoided and were very disappointing.  The Russian experience was very good but the authorities intimidated too many passengers.  The spa areas were a means of buying products and the casino tables were the worse in terms of payouts we have ever seen.  Captive audience??? 

MAJOR PROBLEM

BOTH OF US GOT SICK ON THE NIGHT BEFORE WE LEFT AND WONDER IF THIS OCCURRED WITH OTHER PASSENGERS!!!!

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.
