Review summary

This is the 2nd time that we travel on Celebrity having been on a marvelous cruise on the Reflection 2 years ago. Its sister ship, the Shilouette did not disappoint. We are a group of 13 including edleries and young children and the majority of them did not speak much English therefore finding a "user friendly" ship is of prime importance (in addition to the destinations). The ship is well kept, the staff curteous, helpful and very friendly! The quality and choices of food on board remain (in our opinion) the best amongst similar cruise liners. The "added perks" for Suite Class passengers were great value for money and the services impeccable and made the passengers felt valued. The only slight draw back being that it was obviously a very popular route and at a very popular time and the ship seems to be at full capacity, which makes the public area very crowded(and makes it seem a lot smaller than the Reflection) and the only cafe offering premium tea, coffe and cakes was full to its brim on all sea days. The food in the speciality restaurant were of good quality except for the Tuscan Grille where more attention could be paid to the ingredients (especially the fishes which tasted rather stalled).

Clean and thoughtfully laid out, with plenty of storage spaces, even with 4 residing. Lovely balcony. if there could be an additional bathroom it would have been perfect.

Ship tip

Book a suite if possible, the added perks and the attention given to suite guests makes it worth the extra monies.
