Let me start by saying that my wife and I have been cruising since 1977 and have been on over 100 cruises. This includes just about all the cruise lines. We switched to Celebrity a few years ago and have sailed on the Equinox and Eclipse. Both were very good but the Silhouette is now our favorite. The other two ships were very nice but the Silhouette is even better.
The Hot Glass Show on the top deck has been replaced by the Lawn Club Grille. The Glass show is nice but after you see it once, it is just wasted space. The Lawn Club Grille can be enjoyed more than once and is a lot of fun. The wine cellar has been improved. The bar has been removed and there is more space there.
The crew is very friendly and the service great. The Captain was able to dock in Labadee even in very high seas and wind. And had the good sense to leave early when it became a little too rough.
We liked the Silhouette so much that we just booked another cruise on it for the Holidays.

If you get the Classic Wine Package as a perk for booking, spend the extra $10 pp per day to upgrade to the Premium Package. Well worth it. Also, get water at the bars and put in your cabin frig.
