Spring break, good times! by mennella

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Booking with Aaron Pecinagonzalez was made easy, and his follow up was great.

 

We had enjoyable time with our family. As usual, Celebrity is top notch.

 

We have been to these ports many times, wish there were other places that would be included. I realize being a big ship, limits ports.

Celebrity Silhouette by marthacrrt3

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

The cruise was very relaxing. Ports were nice too. Food was very good although the service was a tad slow. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't acknowledge that this was our honeymoon until we went to guest relations. Then they sent us a bottle of wine and flowers which was very nice. Good mix of ages and kinds of people from all over. We were seated with nice people for dinner.

The new glalmorous Celebrity Silhouette cruise experience. by bwk

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The entertainment was our best experience.  The dinner menu was excellent and we were very satisfied.  Service by our head waiter Vadym, his assistant Brain and Maco who provided us with wine and cocktails was top notch.  We gave them an A for service.

Celebrity western Caribbean cruis by salimmancho

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The cruise was phenomenal. The food, live activity and entertainment on the ship was simply awesome and the staff was exceptional. The captain was hilarious and super cool, every inch of this huge vessel was spotless. They did a great job of getting you to the excursions and back on the ship.  

Recommendation- Just do a little reading about the destinations and excursions as one of our excursion was partially closed because of new archeological findings and active digging.

Will do a cruise with celebrity any day, what an experience

Great cruise!! by CruZen

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

LOVE the staff. All were very nice and hospitable. Barista employees don't look happy, no smiles but great service. CLEANEST SHIP EVER-staff always cleaning and disinfecting public areas. we had a group of 8 and no one got sick-a rare occasion for a cruise. GUEST SERVICES-were very helpful for all our needs.

CRUISE DIRECTOR and Managers were great fun and entertaining. What a wonderful group of hosts. Really enjoyed the Silent Disco wished someone would instruct ballroom dance and not just play music. Our group wanted to learn more but no instruction was being offered. ENTERTAINMENT was PHENOMENAL. Wow is all we had to say! of all the things we did, we all made sure to see every evening. Gym was neat and clean and modern equipment. Some folks really enjoyed the outdoor walking track.

 

HATE:

CELEBRITY..FIX YOUR WEBSITE!! very difficult to navigate. CLASSIC DRINK PACKAGE-was changed the week before our trip and some people were disappointed they didn't get the drinks they thought were available. WHERE DID THE SMOOTHIES GO? the bar in the buffet was available for making smoothies on our last Celeb.cruise, really missed that. Now only the spa makes them. Don't understand THAT concept. Massage packages are priced about $45-50 per person too high!! Same with the Garden experience and the lawn cabanas. We would not recommend any of these services based on price alone. Staff was very friendly.

Celebrity is by far the best by jescev13

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The turtles in Grand Caymen and the beach beds in cococay were the best! Main dining room staff very attentive! Love the interactive TV to see charges to the room.  I wish the room TV had better/more channels and the ability to see photos like on the solstice ship

Another wonderful trip with Celebrity! by Dearie1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This is our third trip with Celebrity, the second on the Silhouette.  We sailed from Fort Lauderdale to the private island, Cococay, then to Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Jamaica.  We went Aquaclass and had the Classic drinks package included in the price of the cruise, we upgraded to the Premium package just before we sailed and it was well worth it, no large bar bill at the end of the cruise and it gave us the opportunity to try stuff that we may not normally try for fear of not liking it and wasting it.  Our cabin was spotless and well kept by Stanley our room attendant.  We enjoy eating in Blu each night, its a smaller dining room and a little more intimate, the staff get to know you quickly and make you feel so welcome.  All the food was good, including the Ocean Cafe, we also at at the Tuscan restaurant which was excellent too.  It was easy to find quiet spots on deck to relax or we could go and watch the hi-jinx by the pool!  We managed to catch several shows, the comedian and comedian/impressionist were very funny, the Beatles tribute band was not too bad as long as they were singing, but their wigs and speaking voices were dreadful, awful parodies of an English accent!  We also went to see the Captain's talk about navigation, and he provided a lot of information in a fun and humerous way, he is such a hoot, the daily announcements had everyone laughing!  We were pleasantly surprised by Celebrity's private island, Cococay,  it was very clean, plenty of sunbeds, easy to get away from the noise if thats what you want, the bbq was good, the water all kinds of beautiful blues!  we have been to other cruise lines private islands and were not impressed, they were crowded and very noisy, Cococay was quite lovely!  Embarkation was quick and painless, disembarkation was easy, there were the usual lines at immigration, but thats not the fault of the cruise line!  Only fly in the ointment was the idiot that flouted the no-smoking rules regarding cabins and balconies on the deck above us, not only did we have to put up with the stink we also had ash floating down on us and we also saw him flick his cigarette butts overboard.  At least thats where we hope they went, they could have blown back into someones balcony and started a fire/burnt someone.  Security were advised and took a very dim view of what was going on, we have no idea whether or not they caught up with the idiot, although he did disappear pretty sharpish on the last evening at sea while he was polluting the atmosphere on his balcony!

Cruise line that I would recommend by dklein

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Celebrity cruise line amazed me a second time on this vacation. I continue to be impressed by the service and detail to which they aim for excellence. A cruise with this line is relaxing, pampering, and true paradise. The days at sea were terrific and the entertainment in the theatre was very good. The desserts onboard not as good as the other food. Also, my birthday was screwed up. The line that my companion ordered was not delivered to our table on the night of my birthday. An 'alcohol removed' wine labled Fre' was set, which was also in our room upon arrival. It tastes terrible and the wine master that we had was very smug about it and he did not respond as he should have by apologizing and fixing the situation. He claimed it was wine and appeared uninterested and busy.

We were cabin 1662 on the Celebrity Siloutte March 24th-April 2nd. Also, my birthday cake was not a surprise because the staff came out and asked me if I wanted my first name on it..haha.

Lastly, a bartender in the Sky Lounge told me he was going to make me a birthday drink, which I assumed was complimentary, then he charged me $15 for it. These things did not make my birthday feel special, so that was a loss. It was actually one of the worst birthdays I have had. I choose Celebrity cruise for my birthday, so I expected a special experience, which did not happen. Yet, the rest of the cruise and ports were so nice and I was grateful to be away for my birthday. The dining staff did sing happy birthday to me which was very sweet.

Also, the eggs on the ship were too runny for my taste, but those are small details.

Great Cruise on a Great Ship by kosmo8206

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Overall everything was very positive. Our service at Dinner was top notch. I liked all the different bars and they offered top shelf liquor, beer, and wine. The premium drink package is the way to go. I don't drink a lot but when I do I prefer quality over quantity. Only negative was outside bar service was lacking even when no one else was at the bar waiting. The ships captain was very engaging along with the Entertainment staff. The Cruise director was also best I have seen, she even greeted us and every passengerHappy when we departed ship and wish us safe travels. I have done many cruises and never seen that.  I'll cruise with Celebrity again in the future.

Excellent, enjoyable and fun by Cruiser53000049

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

My husband and I had wonderful time with friends on this cruise.  This was our first time with a balcony cabin and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the blue water of the Caribbean, soaking up the sun, and in awe of the beauty of the area.

 

We enjoyed the food, entertainment and excursions.   We felt blessed by our experience and look forward to our next cruise with Celebrity.

Bus tour SanJuan A++++ 

Most restrictive tours(I was with a 70+ passenger) left ship within 1-1.5 hr of docking even 2-3 hr tours with ship on land 8 hrs. She was not ready until 10:00 each morning so did not book.

Shipmates very accommodating

Shows exceptional

Cruising with Celebrity Sihouette by dianajackson

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The cruise was wonderful.  Our even table wait servers, Melo, Saude and Sasa were excellent.

Dining in the Ocean Café, could be improved, maybe changing the type of food served would be helpful. I would go for breakfast around 10 and they would shut down early, so at least 3 times there was nothing left or closed. On one occasion I just there wondering what to get and the staff person approached me and asked if I needed anything, he actually prepared my hash browns for me. This really made me feel special. It was a kind act. I will say the staff were always pleasant and warm, accept on the occasion that I asked for a piece of paper to write a note and the staff told me to go down to the guest relations to get it. I was on the 14th floor and guest relations on 3. Even though there was papers on the tables, he and she could have been more helpful. Overall, I  really enjoyed the cruise.

Eastern Caribbean Cruise by Di27

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

We had a great time as always! Love Celebrity Cruises and we had a outstanding Silhouette ship, staff and port of calls in our vacation. The one and only downside of the cruise was the on board Wi-Fi, which did hardly work and they blamed it on our laptop and charged us anyway. Other than that we had a OUTSTANDING cruise, hope they will resolve that issue for our next sail with Celebrity Cruises in the near future!!

Celebrity Silhouette is fantastic by sandebeach1015

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

HappyThis was our second trip on the Silhouette and it was just as fantastic as the first. We booked two balcony staterooms and traveled with three teens ages 12-16. The crew and staff was top notch! The food was outstanding! The ports of call were great with so many activities and shore excursions! Everyone in our party had a great time. I highly recommend this cruise.

Just off the mark by ethune32435

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

The boat is lovely, the rooms quite well appointed and the staff, quite friendly. However including water, coffee and tea as part of the drink package seems chintzy. Also not quite honest when being asked to purchase the package for $55/pp per day that you have to pay for these beverages unless you purchase the package. The previously mentioned beverages are available for no charge if you go to the 24 hour buffet or access the pool area drink stations.

Also the excursion specialist gave incorrect information when we asked about our St. John excursion - she indicated it would be 4 hours. It was 5 1/2 hours. She indicated there was a beach stop and so we wore bathing suits and carried towels but there was no stop for the beach.

The best cruise ever by sgleason17

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

I have been on many cruises but I have to rank this one as my favorite.  It was just so comfortable and exciting at the same time.  I loved our big homey balcony suite.  It was big enough to want to just come down and hang out on the balcony with a nice glass of wine and some fruit for hours.  The employees were friendly and helpful.  The food was delicious and the special restrurants were so worth the extra money.  I loved the places we stopped and had wonderful shopping trips!  I can't wait to sail on one of new ships coming out.  I love Celebrity and know that they will be a great adventure.  I also want to thank Lonnie Thompson the agent who we booked with for giving us such good advise and such a good price for this memorable cruise.

A Great Cruise with still room for making improvements..... by RFK10

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The great parts included the Blu restaurant for Aqua class cabins. Smaller, better quality, great ambiance, amazing staff with attention to detail.  They remembered your preferences and name from day one.  The floor to ceiling waterside tables were great.  

It was curious why the Guest Relations were the only people that did not seem to understand customer service.  One actually argued with me claiming that I knew the assigned cabin was obstructed which was not true.  Then they blamed it on Delta Cruises. !!!

Connor at Delta Cruises was awesome and took his time paying attention to detail and followed up on his customers.  He was much more than just a quick order taker!

On the ship the excursion staff wasted much of our time with how they handled the tenders.  We had a timed excursion and we sat around for an hour in the theater and then more time on the tender.  We had a timed excursion for a submarine and they were sending people with no timed itinerary to the tenders.  This caused us to MISS our excursion.  Thankfully the submarine staff found us time later in the day. This meant we missed the opportunity to do other things. The ship personnel did offer us a token reimbursement.

The entertainment was weak with 3 nights of comedians. Only one was better than those trying out at some comedy club ashore.  All shows in the theater were pain level loud...the kind of level that damages hearing.  Often the sound distorted.  There is no excuse for this in a fixed venue with state of the art equipment that gets used daily.  I have studied acoustics at a university and performed in very impressive well -known venues that impress others of my experience on stage and in the best concert halls, so I feel my criticism is valid.

 

This review might sound like focusing on the negatives.  The seas were rough and we missed our first port but they found the calmer seas and that is priceless!

This asks about room for improvement.  This should not take away from what is a great cruise line with amazing ships and the Silhouette won awards for 2016 for the best food and perhaps even a ship of the year award.  It is well earned.

Celebrity knows their market.  There were few children and drinking to scary excess was not often observed.  Celebrity Cruises may be a slightly larger investment because of the top quality, but that small investment is a great value for those that want more than a cheap cruise with cheap food in the buffet.  One additional comment on the Silhouette...the captain is funnier than the comedians and adds to the ambiance....we looked forward to his entertaining announcements!

Celebrity silhouette by lindamm88

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Pros: ship was beautiful, wonderful staff, clean rooms, exceptional nightly     entertainment, plenty of delicious food.

cons: if you don't like feeling like your packed into a can of sardines than the pool area is not for you! Days at sea are very boring for lack of activities. I felt I wasted 3 days of my vacation.

cruise review by peachie1111

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Celebrity Silhouette / Destination: Caribbean - Western

falmouth Jamaica port was nice but Red Stripe beach was nothing to talk about. Very shallow water., staff there were great tho.

 

Turtle Farm in Grand Cayman is VERY awesome if you love turtles. YOu can even swim in the lagoon with the turtles. Just make sure you get the right Turtle Farm excursion,

 

Mr. Sanchos at Cozumel was outstanding!!!
