Review summary

Please note that with the exception of Dominica we did not go on any excursions or island tours. We just explore what is available directly off the pier. However, we heard good things from other passengers on excursions and island tours. In Dominica we went on the excursion to see the black sand beach. Sadly, it was mostly gray sand. But it was a beautiful day, as was the ocean. The locals were walking around selling their crafts. They were very friendly, in spite of the fact a lot of the island was flattened by hurricane Maria in 2017. This was our 24th cruise, first time with Celebrity. We were very impressed with this ship and the line. The Silhouette was maintained, cleaner and in better shape then the one year old MSC ship we were on last month. It's a very elegant ship with a wonderful crew. The cruise director Sue was fabulous, hilarious and very talented. Our room steward, Anthony, was very hard working and always around if you needed something. In 12 days, everytime we went back to the room (AM & PM) our room was always cleaned. The menu in the main dining room was a little disappointing, however, they did have a lobster night and escargot was available daily. We found the late seating at 8:30 was just a little to late for us and with the menu not very impressive, we ate in the buffet most nights. We found the buffet selections very good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Quality was good. Juices, water, iced tea, hot tea and coffee available 24 hours. The nightly entertainment varied. The ship dancers and aerialists were very good, however, the singers not so much. Some of the acts that were brought in were very good. Such as, an acapella group with a "human instrument", a piano player that had performed with Liberace, a few of the singers and a wonderful comedian that was suitable for all ages. Be sure and try the "Silent Disco". Very original and fun!

Ship tip

If you enjoy eating in the main dining room but the 2 seating times do not work for you, try the anytime dining. We didn't but wished we would have.
