Celebrity Silhouette

May 2016 - Celebrity Silhouette to Europe - Northern Europe

Wonderful,worthwhile cruise of the Baltic countries.

Favorite part was the places we visited. It was on our "bucket list" and we wanted to see other cultures similar to ours and their progress in dealing with 21st century issues as global warming,carbon emissions,flooding,etc.

Our ship,the Silhouette, was beautiful. It was the 3rd time we cruised on her and enjoyed the cabins and lounges and the "green" 15th level. Lovely place to watch ship go in and leave ports esp. the channel leading into Stockholm.Train excursion into Berlin was well worth the money. The coach and tour guides were knowledgeable and accommodating. We also went on a river cruise in Berlin as part of this tour. Lunch was at a lovely restaurant in the old part of Berlin in an unusual area. For us,it was  an unforgettable place.

    We would highly recommend this cruise to anyone. We enjoyed our balcony cabin even though the mornings were cool.The afternoons were in the mid 70`s and a great place to relax before dinner.

   The tour for the Hermitage cpuld be improved. We were dropped off into a line of 300-400 people in the rain,at the Hermitage even thought we already bought our tickets to go in.We have talked to 2 other couples who took the same tour previously and they both  bi-passed the line-ups and walked straight into the building with their guide. Why did we have to line up and  wait 1 and 1/2 hrs. in the rain?

44garry's Tips

Stockholm, Sweden - Beautiful city. took canal cruise to see city areas,palaces,etc.
Copenhagen, Denmark - Take shuttle and buy ticket for "Hop-on,Hop-off"bus. Good tour even if you don`t get off before the end of tour.
Tallinn, Estonia - Beautiful city. Took shuttle to town and there we bought" hop on and hop off tour". Never hopped off but took tour around city.Great opportunity and
Helsinki, Finland - Shuttle from ship to town and walked to Market down to waterfront. Beautiful market- flowers,vegetables,seafood,crafts.
Celebrity Silhouette Celebrity Silhouette - The beverage pkg, was a great perk. Our bottles of water and different coffees and teas were all free as well as our wines and mixed alcoholic drinks.Hope it is always offered. We always enjoy a balcony cabin . Cabin seems bigger, enjoy peace and quiet "escape", morning coffee while enjoying view.
