As the newest ship in the Celebrity fleet the Silhouette is beautiful, functional and comfortable.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Excellent food quality and variety. We missed the dining experience in Blu and will probably upgrade to AquaClass in the future.

Art classes, Beyond the Podium lectures were appreciated. The new direction of the production shows is OUTSTANDING! We loved the energy, the choreography, the special performances, the music, the costuming, etc. Cirque at sea. The featured performers (violinist, vocalist, comedian, etc. were very good.)

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The senior crew were very visible and accessible. The staff is genuinely friendly and caring, although the disembarkation was an unmitigated disaster.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Contemporary design, great passenger flows, many different options.

Segway tour with Ivo was outstanding! The old walled city, the cathedral, the towers, the Piazzas, and walking the streets of old town.
Don't Miss: The 360 degree view from the top of the city.

Foul weather ruined the visit, but the Castle St. George is a great. The Monastery, the city tour, getting away from the waterfront and into the city of Lisbon.
Don't Miss: Monastery of St. Jerome
5 out of 5
The cathedral, the fort, and the walking streets Las Ramblas and the Pressiag Borne. Walking the waterfront and soaking up the life around the marinas.
Don't Miss: The Cathedral

Pros: The service attitude of the entire staff from Captain Paganis all the way down the organizational chart to the busboy in the buffet.

Cons: The rough seas

Recommends Celebrity Silhouette? Yes!
