Celebrity Silhouette

February 2015 - Celebrity Silhouette to Caribbean - Western

Great Relaxing Cruise

I need to start out by saying that I have not been thrilled with the embarkation experience of any previous Celebrity cruise. They seem to have cleaned things up and smoothed out the process. Embarkation was easy! I got a great rate on an inside cabin, so we economized and did that. The cabin was very nice but I will be returning to a balcony on the next cruise! I did the book on board and got a good deal that was tied to my travel agent and got a shipboard credit and the classic beverage package. It was a super easy process. Food was impressive and I enjoyed most of the specialty dining. Wasn't sure the Lawn Club was worth the money, Celebrity might have broken the barrier on the thinnest steak ever. Qsine was innovative and fun but not my thing. The service was great and the food was good, it just seemed like they worked really hard on the quirky presentation. 

The ship was a very pleasant home for the week and all the bar staff and wait staff were wonderful. Great cruise, great ship!

Regal Princess

November 2014 - Regal Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Great ship, minor kinks to work out

I have been on Princess several times and there are certain things you should always expect. Great service, beautiful ships, unique public spaces that each have their own atmosphere. This ship is no different. I wasn't in one public space that I didn't feel comfortable in.

I was economical on this trip, since I was traveling as a single. I sailed in an inside cabin. The room was efficient and was well laid out. The closet was huge. Honestly a little less closet and a few more drawers would have been helpful. I had plenty of space but two people's clothes or even 4 (which this cabin would sleep) would have been pushing it.

My one complaint was with the technology in the cabin. The flat screen was beautiful but notable, the system would lock up frequently and not stream content, even music content. I would have expected better tech on a brand new ship. Obviously not something they decided to sink money into.

As usual, the specialty dining was exquisite. In the main dining rooms, the food was good. I didn't starve but nothing blew my socks off. The bars all served great drinks at respectable resort prices.

One suggestion for the morning buffet. They have servers who bring coffee and juice to the table. Very nice touch, but they need more of them! Several mornings I was almost done with breakfast before they got to me. Everybody was working hard, they just had too many people to get to effectively.

All in all, I would recommend this ship. I think they have some things to shake out on the service side but overall it was a wonderful experience.

cruisecellar's Tips

Falmouth, Jamaica - OK, the area just off the dock is like the Disneyland version of Jamaica but still a nice experience. Got some good Jerk chicken at a local spot.
Celebrity Silhouette Celebrity Silhouette - Got the premium bar package and lived in the Molecular Bar! It just takes one more thing of the worry list!
Regal Princess Regal Princess - Try the specialty dining, you won't be disappointed.
