9 Night Scandinavia & Shakespeare (Southampton To Amsterdam)
Sail Date: April 23, 2016
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 8161
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

The Baltic cruise was a pleasure to take for it involved only sea days an had some excellent stops especially if you can find your own things to do in the port. The overnight in Oslo was very nice so you could stay out late and start early particularly because Oslo has lots to see. Helsingborg was good for the Kronberg castle but it was a tender port. Copenhagen and Amsterdam are the best of all with so much to do. Skagen and Fredericia are cute but not a lot to do. The  400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death was treated well with speakers and actors on the ship. I loved the back to back stop at Southampton for a private excursion to Stonehenge. Finally the end of the cruise at Amsterdam allowed us to see the tulips at Keukenhof before the weather got too warm

Food and Dining

The open dining option was better than the 8-8:30 late dinner Celebrity had on our previous cruises.

We usually get inside cabins since a balcony is not useful while sleeping, but we had a balcony on the trans Atlantic.

Celebrity had no excursions for back to back cruisers so we got a private one to Salisbury, Stonehenge and Sarum.
