August 2016 - 14 Night British Isles (Amsterdam Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Silhouette
The ports of call were part of our bucket list. Saying that, there are several areas that Celebrity cruise line must do a better job of coordinating with the port authorities. Tendering was, at times, a nightmare. Long lines and even longer times to dockside were a problem. The company must look ahead several years to coordinate dock space rather than tendering on this planned cruise. Staff and quality of food were excellent. Ship was as clean as a brand new one right our of the shipyard.
Many of the cruise sponsored side trips were sold out. Port transportation information for the rest of the cruisers was minimal at best.
This trip despite these few glitches overall was a wonderful time visiting some of the best that the British Isles has to offer.
