What Concierge Class Means on Celebrity

Sail Date: November 23, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My wife and I cruise about twice a year and have been doing this for over 15 years.  This was our first cruise on Celebrity and it appears we saved one of the best cruise lines for last.  We ordered a room with a balcony and it was upgraded from Veranda to Concierge which means everyday you get something extra delivered to your stateroom.  This included a bottle of champagne when we arrived, fruit every day, special invitations during the week and a special waiting area when departing the ship.  The shows on the Silhouette were exceptional.  One night the singing and dancing was Las Vegas level, the acrobats and juggling night was as good as any Cirque shows we get coming through Maryland.  One night we had a pianist/singer that won Holland's Got Talent.  The food was very good in the "normal" dining rooms, but we went to a Specialty Steakhouse  one night for $90 (more on that later) which was every bit as good as a Prime Rib or Ruth's Chris from both a taste, service and ambiance standpoint.  This ship seemed to have a lot of pay as you go add on opportunities, but they don't oversell that.  For example, they didn't "push" drinks, but if you wanted one they were always there.  The only things we didn't like as much was the first day life raft drill which seemed a bit disorganized and the last morning it took us almost an hour from when we were told to depart until we physically were in a cab on our way to the airport.  So an unsatisfying 75 minutes out of a week long vacation is why I give them 5 stars!  We arrived in need of a vacation and left feeling like our money was well spent.   

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
We were able to relax and take our time with each meal in the dining room. The buffet upstairs had excellent choices.
Service and Staff
Our room attendant and waiters in the dining room were all exceptional. All in all a very friendly, very capable staff.
Best we have seen on any cruise. These dancers, jugglers, acrobats, etc. had to deal with swaying seas and in the case of the women do it in heels.
Cabin / Stateroom
Upgrade to Concierge class - not sure of the price, but we thought it was worth the extra dollars.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
San Juan, Puerto Rico We did not make this stop due to weather
Basseterre, St. Kitts
If you don't sign up for a ship excursion, you can get a driver with a van to tour the island for 3 hours for a very reasonable price if you share with 2-3 other couples.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We found a beach that was near the shopping areas, with good restaurants and looks of great island music.


Explore the ship. They have a lot of little hidden nuggets that you can only find by exploring. This includes quiet areas and little exclusive mini-pubs with great entertainment.
