Review summary

Ship needs updating. Food menu needs more variety. Ship needs more elevators and public restrooms, and menus at the bars to inform you what they can make at that particular bar and the cost of those drinks are completely missing. Linens, mattresses, carpet, floor under carpet in cabin (popping noises in a couple of places as you walk across floor) and climate control within the cabins all need work. After the first 4 days or so we were so tired of the same food. In addition, there isn't much to choose from on the room service menu without paying $$$$$. We're sure they do this so you will pay those big bucks for the speciality restaurants -- which are all incredibly expensive. And there are a LOT of speciality restaurants to choose from. You've already paid for your meals, you shouldn't have to pay more. Their drinks, even the nasty tasting bottled water, are incredibly expensive. In addition, frozen cocktails are not made properly. They are very consistently made incorrectly so it's obvious they are taught to make them incorrectly. We've cruised with Holland America, Norwegian and Carnival in the past and wanted to try a luxury line. Holland America is more luxury than Celebrity, at least the Silhouette. This was our least favorite cruise ship.

Ship tip

The smallest balconies we've ever seen or have. The same food for breakfast, same food for lunch and same food for dinner each and every day. Never changes. Ship needs to go into refurb NOW!
