7 Night Eastern Caribbean Holiday (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 21, 2014
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8349
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

For some unknown reason this Holiday Cruise featured Motown and Soul music all over the ship. The fellow passengers did not look to me like they would be fans of this type of music.  Other then the music, the ship is great. Decorated nicely for the Holidays with lots of Xmas trees.  We could not stop in San Juan due to the ship's engine trouble but they gave us a shipboard credit to make up for it. This was not a problem with us since we had been to San Juan many times. But for those passengers that had not bee there, I am sure it was a disapointment.

Must have been OK as the children were not always "under foot"

Room staff and dining room staff were very good at what they do.

Ship Quality

Some items need to be replaced with new ones- like the sheets on the bed.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the Sunset Veranda cabin a lot. The wake was nice to watch.

Ship Tip

I love the drink package. I always upgrade it to the Premium. That way just about all the drinks are covered. Nice not to have to pay for water and smoothies. Sunset Veranda location is nice and quiet in the back of the ship.

Take the ferry into town. No need to go to the beach as it is right in town.
