Baltic Cruise on Celebrity Sihouette

Sail Date: May 28, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We enjoyed the cruise primarily because we wanted to visit so many Baltic cities.  All were wonderful but St. Petersburg was fabulous.  You cannot adequately describe how magnificent the palaces and cathedrals are.  The guides on all our trips were excellent.  They spoke very good English and were full of interesting information.

The staff on the ship were very friendly and anxious to accommodate any needs.  We ate in the Aqua Class restaurant and the food was very good, varied, and well prepared.

We did not see all the shows but those we did were excellent.

We are not big cruising people but if you like cruising on a big ship, then I would recommend the Silhouette.  It was a very good experience. We really have no negative comments.

Ship Quality
Good shows, library, games room, nice cabin with balcony - all well maintained

Onboard Activities
Good but we are not casino goers and we did not spend much time onboard.
Destinations and Excursions
Great excursions, wonderful guides, lots of information.
Cabin / Stateroom
Quite a roomy bathroom. Very clean but functional.
Helsinki, Finland
Went on a trip to an old fishing village - Poorvo.
Tallinn, Estonia
Beautiful preserved medieval old town
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
Went to Lubeck and Wismar - 2 lovely medieval towns.
Fredericia, Denmark
Went to an old Viking camp.
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Rijks museum - fabulous, Canal trip - lovely


Having the upgrades included (drinks, gratuities, onboard spending) was great particularly as buying a drinks package can be very expensive.
We booked some trips ahead of time and they were all good. Also booking ahead from Skymiles might mean you are in a smaller group.
