March 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Silhouette
Embarcation was so quick and easy, so a great start to the cruise.
The choice and quality of the food is fantastic, dont know how they do it but we are on a diet NOW!! Our room with a balcony was spacious,the bathroom too- and well kept everyday by our lovely friendly valet. Spent quite a bit of time on the balcony which was suprisingly large. As you can gather we had a great time on this lovely ship, the staff were great but if i did have to pick a hole it would be with the excurtions. The St Kitts one was a disappointment. it was advertised , rainforest, see lizards and monkeys so i expected a walk at least in a rainforest not just a jeep ride around old sugar cane plantations that dont exist anymore. we did stop and look up at a rainforest, but that wasnt enough and I expect to get what is on the ticket sales. The Puerto Rico walking tour was interesting but chaotic. Finding your tour guide was a mess. There were two big ships there and everyone scurring around trying to find a sign (Our lady had hers under her arm so couldnt see it -very annoying!)( and after asking around a few times found one lady , waited with her , then she decided we had to go and find the other guide as her quota was full even though we were one of the first people with her! Anyway, our guide Ricky waas great, knowledgeable and professional, with charm. After those two experiences we decided not to go on any more organised tours.
Yes we will go on the Celebrity ships again,and Royal Carribean too, both were great, Celebrity is just a step higher though. The shows are not to my liking but I just didnt go, fair enough. We loved our cruise and will talk about it for a long time. Well done Celebrity !
