Ports are incredible but no laundry facilities - outrageous!

No laundry facilities - are you kidding me? The only laundry option is sending to the ship cleaner with socks starting at $3/pair. We travel a lot and packed for 5 days plus two sets of nice evening clothes figuring we'd do laundry twice since this is a 12 day cruise and would pay $3 to $4 per load (wash and dry). We were shocked and appalled to learn Celebrity does not have laundry facilities on its ships. We've cruised with other lines other lines and they all have laundry facilities so it never dawned on us to ask the question. The cost to have our clothes washed was absolutely ridiculous as each load came to almost $100.

The trip was pretty hectic a more sea days in between ports would have been nice to recoup. The wait staff and room staff were one of the best we had having been on 37 cruises.

Great Itinerary Not So Great Ship

Verified Review

The ship was a disappointment. It was too crowded and too noisy. The final area of disappointment was the pervasive feeling that we were “marks” for the staff that was constantly hawking extras. One could hardly walk along the shop areas without being accosted by aggressive sales personnel. It was ironic to be treated that way be people selling some elegant products. I was hardly ever accosted by vendors selling souvenirs in the ports, (it was the Baltic and not the Carribean where things would have been different) – not so on the Silhouette. This survey calculated a 4.1 star rating. I would give it a 3.5.

Great cruise to places we've never been. The ship was excellent and our cabin 7259 was great. The food and service staff was top notch. Celebrity knows how to do it.

This was an amazing journey to learn about places I thought we would never go to. I wish I would of had the opportunity to share this trip w/ my parents. I had them on my mind the whole time. We are Blessed to live in The USA.

If you enjoy your drinks, upgrade to Premium Package, you won't regret it. Research all ports and plan ahead. This saves time, and you can be on your way instead of trying to decide once you have disembarked.

Get the drink package you will use it. For the ports get out of the cruise shopping areas and see the islands. For PR see old city, For St Martin see the whole island, for St Thomas (SEE ST JOHN). If you bring kids they have plenty to do too so you can enjoy your cruise.

Drink package is great and a must even if it is only soda and bottled water. Remember even the bottled water will cost you! Do the excursions and see the Islands, it is well worth it.
