Celebrity Silhouette Overview

Celebrity Silhouette
Celebrity Silhouette from Celebrity Cruises

Since its inaugural voyage in July 2011, Celebrity Silhouette has been upholding the cruise line’s standards for elegance and style at sea. Featuring Celebrity’s iconic Lawn Club, which boasts real grass, as well as an ocean-inspired Solarium, Silhouette exemplifies luxury and indulgence. And when it comes to entertainment, Silhouette has that, too. The grand Silhouette Theater hosts epic performances, including full-scale stage shows, musicals, and comedy, so passengers can enjoy live entertainment nightly.

In January 2020, Celebrity Silhouette is scheduled for a bow-to-stern refurbishment through Celebrity’s multimillion-dollar Revolution program. Anticipated upgrades to this Solstice-class ship include completely redesigned staterooms, upgraded dining venues, new boutiques, and enhanced spa experience. A whopping 85% of Silhouette’s staterooms include balconies. This means that the majority of the ship’s passengers can enjoy private outdoor sitting areas with breathtaking ocean views.

Itineraries and Departure Ports

Travelers looking to see the world will appreciate the ship’s varied itineraries, and voyages range from 6 to 16 nights. European cruises may include stops in Scandinavia, Russia, and the Mediterranean. The ship offers a dedicated 7-night Norwegian fjords cruise that departs from Southampton, England. Departing from Fort Lauderdale, Caribbean cruises include ports of call in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Antigua, and Barbados. The ship also offers trips to South America and the Canary Islands and offers a special Northern Europe Capital Cities cruise.

Before You Book

This ship is best for: Celebrity Silhouette is all about luxury. Travelers looking for a vacation that revolves around pampering, unique dining experiences, and first-rate entertainment should appreciate Silhouette’s amenities. These include a full-service spa, 6 whirlpools, and over 10 specialty restaurants. Plus, with its lack of amusement-park-style activities, the ship provides a more laid-back environment that’s conducive to relaxation.

You should know: While Silhouette does offer structured children’s programs and kid-friendly spaces, most shipboard amenities were designed with adults in mind. Families with kids who want nonstop action and the high-octane excitement of amusement-park-style rides may prefer a mega-ship with more active choices.

Things to do on Celebrity Silhouette

Silhouette’s Lawn Club provides a grassy space for outdoor recreation. Passengers can picnic, play bocce, or take a refreshing nap in one of the ship’s hammocks. For those who prefer indoor entertainment, there's a sprawling casino, which offers blackjack, slots, roulette, and poker games. Live entertainment is offered day and night throughout the ship, and it varies depending on the ship’s destination. Passengers who enjoy more interactive pastimes can learn how to pair food and wine in an onboard course. There's also a technology seminar at the ship’s iLounge. Silhouette also offers art auctions, game shows, and traditional cruise favorites such as bingo and karaoke.

With its unique selection of bars and lounges, Celebrity Silhouette also boasts a vibrant nightlife. From the ice-topped table at the ship’s Martini Bar to the futuristic Quasar nightclub, each venue has a distinct atmosphere and menu. Most stay active late into the night.

This cruise was a nice getaway. The only issue that I would change is the many locations of smoking areas, all the seating with chairs had been smoking areas

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.

Mar 04, 2015

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.

Do not miss the Breakfast/Brunch served on last day!
