Celebrity Silhouette

January 2016 - Celebrity Silhouette to Caribbean - Eastern

A Great, Relaxing Adult Cruise

The ship and it's crew were absolutely fantastic...hospitable, clean and efficient.

Strongly suggest purchasing the additional 4 restaurant package as the specialty restaurants are absolutely wonderful. Best of any cruise we've ever enjoyed.

Overall, we had a very relaxing time aboard this ship, however if you are going to bring children this is clearly not the cruise for them. (We did not)  We were a little bored by about day five but managed just fine.

Overall, loved it. The crew, from officers to stewards make you feel welcome every minute that you are onboard and clearly reflect a positive attitude toward their careers in hospitality.

Carnival Glory

June 2014 - Carnival Glory to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Glorious

Very nice since putting in place the "FunShip" 2.0 features on board. Guy's burger joint was excellent as was the blue iguana burrito and tacos. Very authentic, great a la carte options that were never included with carnival voyages before.

I've cruised a dozen times or so on many lines, and the food on carnival, especially the steakhouse competes or exceeds Royal Caribbean on many levels. Even the Oasis, with it's multiple options fails to compete with carnival.

The ports of call were ok..Cozumel is great for shopping, Belize for snorkeling, Roatan for the beach and Costa Maya for the port..which has a wonderful restaurant, swim-up bar and ample shopping in the immediate area.

Definitely a cruise, however, to be on your guard. Be very careful if planning trips on your own into Belize City or outside Costa Maya's port. Can be dangerous.

Brought my 12-year old as a graduation gift and she didn't want the cruise to end. She absolutely loved it.

rbarnes06477's Tips

Celebrity Silhouette Celebrity Silhouette - Upgrade to the 4 restaurant package if you can..you won't regret it! We found that all of the restaurants were as good as some of the best restaurants on land, and overall the food quality aboard celebrity is certainly a step above other comparable cruise lines.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Port is awesome. Stay there and explore..great pool with swim-up bar while watching dolphins swim in the Dolphin Encounter
Miami, Florida - Absolutely love Miami's energy and culture. Always have.
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - Try to enjoy breakfast plated option in the dining room if you can..much better than buffets on Lido. Steakhouse is EXCEPTIONAL. Do not miss this option! I've never been let down on any carnival ship. Get to the Lido deck early (9am) if you want to sit poolside on days at sea!!
