October 2015 - 14 Night Israel & Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Silhouette
Cruise was a disaster. Celebrity is a super cheap and an incompetent Cruise Line. Our dining room meals were bad, poorly prepared and tasteless. We had 2 sea days before arriving in Israel, but Celebrity did not have a single presentation educating us on Israel. All passengers were anxious to learn about Israel, but they gave us nothing. The entertainment was a joke, essentially non-existant. The theater shows were very amateurish and we looked for dancing venues but nothing except a small dance floor by the elevators holding about 20 people on a ship with 3,000. We went to a nightclub twice but all they had were music videos; no dancing and no people, just waiters standing around. We've cruised 30 times with Princess and the difference is unbelievable. Princess has fabulous shows plus dancing in several venues with live music every night. The service on Celebrity was so bad they had to change our cabin steward because the original one was not providing ice and she kept resetting the temperature setting in the shower so it was scalding hot every time we got into the shower. It was like this was the first cruise ever for Celebrity and they didn't want to spend any money on entertainment. We will never, never cruise with Celebrity again. They are completely incompetent and don't give a damn about providing a quality cruise for their guests.
