January 2017 - Celebrity Silhouette to Caribbean - Western
We were pleasantly surprised by the Silhouette, it exceeded our expectations in almost every way. The cabin was perfectly adequate, the shower actually seemed to be a foot or so larger than on the Oasis class ships of RCCL, the food was top-notch, and the entertainment was OK. The shows were well thought-out as far as timing was concerned, so we did not have to alter our nightly routine very much
However, Celebrity does not handle Anytime dining any better than RCCL (Princess still does it the best) as we had to wait at each dinner for a table up to 15 minutes, and this was despite our offer to share a table. At least we could wit in the lounge with a beeper, rather than stand in line the whole time as is on RCCL.
The Cruise Director, despite being energetic, does not run the Marriage game show very well, forgetting names, and sometimes what he had asked
I also wish there were more regular chairs on the pool deck, since I have a bad back and have problems getting in and out of the loungers
