Celebrity Silhouette 12 night British Isles cruiseLady

Sail Date: May 26, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We enjoyed the ports and itinerary. Ship is attractive and easy to navigate. Entertainment was very good. The two tours we booked through ship was very good. Had problems with embarkation and room location was not good. Very noisy and far away from everything. We would recommend the cruise. Biggest problem is that you never have enough time in port! 

Cabin / Stateroom
Do not choose this location. It is one of the last cabins towards the front right above the area where the captain crew guides the ship and drops anchor. It is very noisy early in the morning. We rarely had a good night's sleep.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Lady that checked us in made mistakes. My photo wasn't usable and had to be retaken. she tried to assign our credit card and room to another couple at a different desk! She seemed disorganized. The disembarkation process we paid for back to airport was very chaotic! I would not purchase again.

Amsterdam, Netherlands
Purchase Holland Pass to skip lines and get into museums easily. Beware of bikers!! they are everywhere and do not stop.
St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands
Victor Hugo house tour was great. Wish we had taken a driving tour around the island.
Cobh (Cork), Ireland
Not much to do in Cork. The hop on hop off buses were cancelled! Glad we did take tour to Blarney Castle as everyone that went did not have time to go up the tower. Probably best to take a countryside tour instead.
Dunmore East (Waterford), Ireland
Loved the Waterford and Kilkenny tour. Very lovely lunch on cruise tour.
Dun Laoghaire (Dublin), Ireland
Big city; not easy to get around. We booked our own tour to Malihide Castle and Howth.
Liverpool, England
Booked private Beatles tour online and loved it! Great port area and easy to walk around.
Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland
Took train to Glasgow but hard to get to train station. Long walk. Loved Glasgow! Lovely city and great shopping. Took hop on hop off bus. Best stop was Killengrove Museum! Absolutely the best art and paintings on the whole trip!
Le Havre (Paris), France
2nd day took cruise tour to Rouen and Honfleur. Great tour guide and lovely day and lunch. Our tour to Giverny was cancelled due to flooding.
Dover (London), England
Shuttle service took too long. Not organized. Don't waste your time, better to get a taxi. Dover Castle was fantastic. Expect to spend 2-3 hours there. Wish we could have hiked the trails but ran out of time.


The classic drink package was very nice and adequate. Be prepared to pay for shuttle, taxi or transport into town from port. The port locations were usually far away from town and activities. There is a lot of walking at these ports.
