This was our first ever cruise so we could only compare to our experience in all-inclusive resorts. As it was our first cruise, we wanted a no-worry/no-trouble trip so we booked an all in one package that included air transit from our home city, onboard gratuities and standard drink package which we upgraded to the premium package. We were happy to do so since the plane chartered by Celebrity to bring us to the cruise had a first half-hour delay due to late arriving of the crew (!?) then, at the beginning of the runway, we turned around for a one hour delay due to minor (?) mechanical problem… finally, we arrived at Palm Beach Airport (PBI) having missed our landing window so we had another half-hour delay to get to an access ramp (!?) … add to this the one hour+ bus transit to Port Everglades, every other passengers were already boarded when we arrived. The good thing is we had absolutely no waiting time for the check-in where plenty of Celebrity people were waiting for us. Due to our late arrival, we boarded the ship while the muster drill was taking place so we could not get to our room immediately. Then finally, we discovered our stateroom and started the real vacation time. We were greeted with enthusiasm by our Room Stewart who answered kindly our few questions. Dining: We were set for the 6 PM dining; being new to this, on the first evening, we were right on time. The main dining room is split between two deck: full floor on deck 3 and balcony style on deck 4. We were assigned a table at the edge of the balcony with a nice view of the main floor down on deck 3. On the following nights, we presented ourselves between around 6:20~6:35 and always got the same table. The only time we got another table, but still got the same waiter, was when we arrived at 6:50. There was 10 choices of appetizers, six of them changing each night, 9 choices of main courses with 6 changing every night and finally 8 or 9 choices of dessert with 3 of them changing every night… With that variety, we didn’t feel the need to try speciality restaurants. Our friendly waiter gave us his suggestions of the day and gave us tips on dishes that will come later that week to help us choose. Food was excellent, flavorful and cooked as desired: my wife likes her meat very well done; she ordered a Filet Mignon that arrived without the slightest hint of pink in it but was still wonderfully tender (a first ever!). The service was quick and very attentive, we once ordered a dish unknown from us; at first bite, we didn’t like the taste and texture, the waiter quickly came inquiring, as soon as we answered, as soon the dish was gone and a replacement order had been taken which arrived only minutes later. Top service from Constantin, our waiter and Asep, his assistant! Other meals: We could have had breakfast at the main dining room but never took advantage of it. Breakfast and lunch were taken at the OceanView buffet. Lots of variety, freshness, taste, cleanliness, everything was there. And we always managed to get a seating place. There also we got great service as waiters and waitresses wandered around to as if we wanted some drinks. There was only on little glitch: at the cheese counter (La Fromagerie), there was several bowls containing cheese cubes of different variety; a bowl of blue cheese was sitting in the middle of it which result in people using the blue cheese tongs in the other cheeses plates, spreading the blue all over them… despite loving cheese, my wife, she had to restrain herself since she has allergic reaction to blue cheese. We also have to mention the Café Al Bachio where we ordered excellent speciality coffee and delicate pastries, at the counter or from a waitress while sitting in the comfort of an armchair. Outstanding ! The service: We received excellent service everywhere on the ship: waiters and waitresses at the dining room, at the Café, on pool decks, in the theater, the staff at the excursion and guest relation counters, at the stores, everyone would greet us and serve/answer us with smile and eagerness. During the whole cruise, only once did we encounter a member of the staff whose attitude was unpleasant; since it was not strictly necessary, we simply avoided having further business with him. Security: The night before arriving at Grand Cayman Island, upon reviewing the water condition forecast, the cruise decided to cancel all excursions to stingray bay the next day. We were quite impressed with that action that showed passenger’s security is of great concert to the cruise! Pools: There are 2 small outdoor pools flanked by 4 Jacuzzis and one inside pool (glass roof) flanked by 2 jacuzzis. The outside polls where quite crowded, especially on days at sea while the inside one was not. We always found available beach chairs on one of the two decks around the pools (with a little more effort on the first day at sea since we arrived late in the after-noon). Entertainment: First we have to say the theatre is awesome. Excellent acoustics and you have a good view from every chair. The quality of the evening shows was just “WOW!”. Those were not the homemade semi-amateur show you see in resorts, those were hi level professional shows, whichever performed by guests our by the cruise artists. Our only wish would be for them to last a little longer… Musical performances in the halls were also of professional quality. There were several other activities (games) organised by the cruise entertainment team but we choose to take advantage of the nice weather and to relax instead of joining in. Although, we watched a couple of them and they were fun. Well that’s about it. We were a tiny bit anxious about that first cruise but now the ice is broken and we will enjoy even more the next one. Will it be on a Celebrity ship? There are good chances it will since we really enjoyed this cruise. Read Less

This was our first cruise, so we weren't quite sure what to expect. We are a married couple in our late 30's. We chose Celebrity because we read they had great food and the accommodations would be nice. Overall, it was nice, but we got bored during sea days. We arrived the night before and stayed at the Red Carpet Inn. It was the cheapest we could find. Shuttle to the hotel was fine. We had to wait 30 min. It was a longer wait (1 hour) in the morning to catch the shuttle to the port. It went really smoothly. Embarkation was great. No wait. We explored the ship and ate in the buffet until the rooms were ready. Food--Of course, there was always plenty of food to eat. The buffet was good, with lots of different choices and usually no lines. The main dining room had the best food, but service was very slow and the side dishes were tiny. We figured out to arrive when it opened at 5:30 to get the quickest service. We did not try any specialty dining because it was too expensive. Room service food was mostly bad and slow. Despite not being as gourmet as I was expecting, I always found something good to each and never went hungry. Entertainment-- The entertainment in the theater was pretty good. We enjoyed the first 2 comics. We found that it was easier to get seating for the first show. The other shows (comic, dancers/singers, acrobats) were good, but not something I would pay to see. Besides the nightly show, there was very little to do onboard. We watched a movie everyday and a few TV shows. They also showed a movie in a "theater" on the 3rd floor. The resolution was terrible! And they didn't offer popcorn. Exercise room-- Lots of treadmills, bikes, elliptical, & weight machines. Many of the screens did not work though. Mornings were busy, so we exercised later in the day. Chilled wash clothes were nice. The exercise track was only usable very early in the morning before people wake up. Service-- Everyone was friendly and pleasant. The ship was kept immaculate. Stateroom-- We had a balcony, but we didn't use it very much. A large window would have been just as nice. There was plenty of room & storage for two people. Shore Excursion-- On St. Kitt's, we chose an excursion through Celebrity and we are glad we did. It was snorkeling and sea kayaking with a snack at the end. Library, Ping-Pong, Lawn-- I was glad to have a library, because there was not a lot to do. We played ping-pong one night. Played a game on the lawn. Lounges-- We don't drink, but we walked through the lounges during the day. They were beautiful! Passengers-- Most everyone was polite and pleasant. I think 75% of the passengers were over 70 years old and from the NYC area or Florida. Disembarkation-- We had an early flight, 11:05 am. We got off the ship and to the airport in plenty of time. The only annoyance was that a shuttle van grabbed our bags when we really just wanted a cab. The van was $11 per person, but a taxi was $16 total, so we felt ripped off. Overall, I'm glad I finally got to go on a cruise. I enjoyed eating as much as I wanted. The ship was beautiful, but there was not much to do besides eating, drinking, gambling, or shopping.

This was my first cruise and I had a fabulous time! Specifically, what made my time on celebrity so amazing was the amazing staff on board. I can't say enough times how nice, curteous, and enjoyable all the crew members were towards me. In fact, I only eat kosher food and they catered to my requests to the T. The activities director and managers made my vacation loads of fun! I went to most of the activities on broad and attended every show. The director and managers are hysterical and entertaining in the best ways possible. As I'm not one to sit at the pool all day, I very much enjoyed having activities throughout the day. At St Maarten, I took the horseback riding excursion and that was just breathtaking! At St Kitts, I went on the snorkeling excursion and that was beautiful too. However, I didn't get a chance to tour those islands since I was too busy having fun, and I sort of regret not doing a tour excursion. How many times will I be at the islands again? Who knows.

First time cruiser, so take it all with a grain of salt. I was underwhelmed. Cabin: Very nice but as expected quite small. Didn't care too much since I planned to only be there to sleep, which worked out well. When the trundle was pulled out there was no room to walk past it so you walked on it to get across the room. Water pressure was good and temperature went from hot to boil the skin off your back, no joke. Food: We ate at the Grand Cuvee three times, once for lunch and twice for dinner. Lunch was eh. Thanksgiving dinner was alright, but not great. The last time I had some steak which was amazing. Ate at qsine once, which was a disaster. 2.5 hours total. Food was solidly eh, with between 10 and 30 minutes between courses. Wait staff didn't refill drinks, didn't check on us at all. Back of the bench seat next to us was falling down. Ate at the bistro on 5 once, great crepes, and small cover charge. Ate at Murano once, which was very nice. Food was great, wait staff was awesome. Over $800 for the 10 of us though. Ate at Tuscan Grille once for lunch, awesome food and staff. The rest of the time we were at the Oceanview Cafe, which always had pretty good to really good food and a great variety. No complaints there. We started with the classic package since I'm a beer drinker, but had to upgrade the first day since the only beers covered in that were the cheapies like budweiser. Bar at the cafe was great, bar at the pool was usually pretty good. Usually ended up at the sunset bar which was always top notch. Only thing to note is that I usually ordered the same drink, and had it prepared a total of about 7 different ways. Entertainment on ship: Im sorry but the dance/singing troupe on board is poor. I understand that their contract is up in March so maybe they're just burned out, but it's clear they don't practice enough. Dancers were out of step, singers were off key. We saw their broadway show and their cirque style show. The aerialists were excellent but their part was quite short. Also watched the dancers do the salsa show prior to docking at Puerto Rico, and at least a couple of them (I have video) were purely going through the motions. I understand that Celebrity contracted out this show and has not renewed the contract, and is bringing everything in house from now on. The jazz band was very good on the other hand, should have been out more often. The house band was pretty good and played a wide variety of music, but was more of the small party/bar level than you'd expect on a cruise ship. Like I said, this is my first cruise so maybe my standards were just too high. Other entertainment on board was a disappointment. There were things for the kids to do, although some of that seems like they didn't talk to actual children beforehand. Scrapbooking as a teen activity? My complaint, which probably has more to do with the predominant clientele of the boat, is that there's nothing for a family to do together other than the pool. If you want to buy an expensive watch or purse, gamble, play bingo, they have you covered. Activity with your kids other than sit by the pool or watch a movie, not that I could find. Shore excursions: Took a tour of San Juan, which was nice although the tour guide insisted on taking us to a restaurant across town rather than someplace closer. Food was pretty good though. Biggest problem here was that we were only in San Juan for about 6 hours, not enough time to really explore. Took a 'jeep tour' of St. Kitts which was scads of fun, made more so by the pouring rain that we had for the very first part. Hey, like the guide said 'You're in a rain forest. It rains.' Again, wasn't in port long enough to do much. Saint Maarten we just walked around rather than take a guided excursion, and while nice it was absolutely touristy. Every store/stall sold the same goods, people asking you every 10 feet if you wanted a taxi ride or offering a free gift to come into their store. Reminded me of Tijuana. Of course we spend all day there. Best part of the trip was the ship tour. Saw the bridge, engine control room, winch deck, crew quarters, behind the stage, etc. Well worth the money. Embarkation was pretty smooth, with a few delays due to rain. Baggage showed up at the room quickly, no complaints. Disembarkation was another matter altogether. We were in port on time and expected to disembark on time. An hour after our assigned time we went (back) down the elevator to level three and couldn't get out of the elevator because of the number of people still there. Ended up leaving about two hours after our planned time, glad we had a late flight. Have to mention that the $20 per person to have the bags checked through to the airport and boarding passes printed was money well spent. In summary, it all boils down to the question, would I do it again? The answer is no, with caveats. I wouldn't go back on this boat, and probably wouldn't take Celebrity again. They seem to cater more towards the older crowd. If you're in the demographic they're aiming at, I assume it's a great time. If I did it again I'd probably try one of the lines that cater more towards active people. Read Less

I understand that everyone has a different experience, some may agree and some may disagree with my opinion of this cruise. The issues I discuss are more observations than complaints. If I had encountered any serious issue that impacted my vacation it would have been addressed immediately through Celebrity. My wife and I are both professionals in our early 50s. This was our 5th cruise and the first with Celebrity. I have to say this was an interesting cruise. Overall the ship was beautiful and one of the cleanest ships I have ever been on. We had a great week and enjoyed many laughs. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. I am not sure why Celebrity wanted to know as there was no acknowledgement during the week so I guess it is just more data collection for the marketing department. Our stateroom was very nice. We had one of the large slanted balconies first off the hump. It was the biggest balcony that I have ever enjoyed. We had 3 chairs and a table. We could have easily fit 3 more chairs. The neighbors were very quiet but often smoked on the balcony so it was a little stinky at times. Yes, I know … smoking rules… call security … I just did not care that much. Our cabin steward was good. We did not see him much during the week but he and his team kept the room clean, ice bucket full and even made some towel animals. I believe that a vacation is what you make it. Unfortunately, at times I felt I had to work pretty hard to make this one great. Overall food was somewhat of a disappointment for me on this cruise. The best thing I had all week was ½ a grouper sandwich that I split with my wife at Jimmy Buffett’s in Falmouth. Before this cruise I didn’t understand how the celebrity class system works with food. It is open to debate that the specialty restaurants are supposed to be the best (hence the fee), followed by Luminae for suite passengers, followed by Blu for aqua passengers, finally ending with the MDR for everyone else. How low do you start the quality of the food to get progressively better going up 4 tiers? Some people say it is simply about choices but I suggest that it is indeed designed to be an upgrade at each tier corresponding to the increase in fares. The quality of the MRD food was ok at times but I feel that the Appleby’s or Cheddar’s chains are a step above the main dining room experience in both quality of food and service. We tried Murano one night. Unfortunately, I had great difficulty understanding our waiter he also seemed new. Asked for a wine recommendation and he could not provide one. He just handed us the wine menu. My wife asked to try 2 starters. The waiter strongly discouraged her saying the food was so rich how could anyone have 2 starters? He finally gave in after she explained she just wanted to try a little of each. The bisque did not appeal to her as she did not care for the “spinach flan” hiding in the bottom of her soup bowl. The other starter she could not eat at all because the crab did not smell fresh. (This was not her being picky it was clearly past its prime) The lobster was very good; and cooked perfectly by the assistant waiter. Our head waiter made a few minor mistakes like mixing regular water into my San Pellegrino, attempting to serve soup again after our starters (oops, wrong table), forgetting our cheese course after we asked him to bring it before desert, we asked again after desert and he responded “Shall, I continue with what I have planned?” I quietly asked my wife, “More soup?” All and all we had a wonderful time. At the end he made it clear that tip was not included in the $100 we paid. I think $120 was too high for what we experienced but it was fun. Breakfast kept me going all week, the breakfast food in the ocean view was fresh and hot. In the ocean view lunch and dinner choices were the same every day. I did notice a lack of seafood and any fried food such as fish and chips and that type of thing in the ocean view however the mast grill did a good cheeseburger and fries at lunch. The first service issue we experienced was service in the main dining room. I spoke to the waiter on the first night about the slow service. That was a big mistake. I wish I would have not said anything because for the rest of the week he was very cold. He did not do any more or any less than was absolutely required. Handed us the menus, made his recommendation and took the order immediately, brought the food and left. I guess that is what a waiter does but we did not feel welcome and actually were fairly uncomfortable much of the time. He never offered anything extra, never remembered our water preferences, never inquired about our day. These things are not requirements but it makes for a nicer experience and a nicer tip. I was not impressed with most of the dishes and came to dread the main dining room each evening. Dinner took 1 ½ to over 2 hours each night. We had late fixed seating and the room had many open tables each night and several nearly empty 8/10 tops with one couple sitting at them. We dined alone 4 nights at a 6 top. On the last night (extra tip night) suddenly our waiter was much friendlier. Unfortunately the entrée was inedible. We skipped dessert. Sorry too little too late. On the subject of friendliness; we did meet many friendly crew members during the week. However, a good portion of the crew seemed unhappy with a borderline distain for the passengers. Smiles were hard to find and the crew just seemed angry, exhausted or both. Perhaps it is just part of the ships “modern luxury” but friendliness was generally lacking. Anytime I tried to talk to a crew member it was the same. “Yes sir, No sir, and will that be all sir?” After a while I stopped trying to make small talk. A ten to fifteen minute wait at the bars were common. Perhaps they are trained this way but I did notice that some bartenders were intentionally working slowly. Make only one drink at a time, collect the sea pass, ring up the drink and return the sea pass before acknowledging the next customer. They purposely looked down to avoid eye contact with customers who were waiting for service. I can honestly say that that type of service would not last a day at many of our busy hometown establishments. I blame the drink packages, it seems like nearly every passenger at the bars had one. It was very rare to see a passenger sign a bill. I was surprised at the slowness because I would think crew would be running those cards as fast as they could to get the 18% gratuity off each pour but it did not seem to be the case in many instances. The ports were outstanding; we lucked out on Coz and had Chankanaab mostly to ourselves. My wife was asked to participate in the sea lion show!!! Stingray city was a blast. Falmouth had a fantastic Jimmy Buffett’s. Labadee was very beautiful but sort of strange. Things are pretty far apart so it is nice hike to get to the last beach. They do have a tram but we decided to walk. The local guys working the beaches were aggressive and wanted to make sure everyone knew they were in charge. We had a guy follow us all the way down the beach to keep us from getting a chair from someone other than him. I guess I should have just given him some money right away and he would have left us alone. These are not your run of mill beach guys. They are organized and in charge of the beach. After they set up the chairs they just stood around and glared at everyone. It was a little creepy. The wave runner tour was cancelled without notice. Not a big deal but we watched the time carefully, did not drink and walked all the way back to the ship from the far beach to meet our tour for our 1:30 appointment only to be told they were cancelled. They offered the zip line instead but we just took the refund and got back on the ship. Guest services left a message that I needed to come down and run my credit card again. I provided it at check in but they had no record of it. They ran it again it was fine. Luggage Valet - Guest service told me that I had to name both of us on our luggage valet reservation even if I had 1 bag to be checked. This caused the charge to be $40 instead of $20. I noticed the extra charge on my account questioned them about it. I removed one of the names on reservation and dropped the price back down to $20. They said the person not on the reservation would not be able to access their airline boarding pass online and would have to check in at the airport. This is simply false. The online check in and boarding passes worked fine. They told me I would not get our luggage tag until 11:30PM the night before we disembarked. We had the luggage tags by 6PM so I am not sure where that info was coming from. Luggage valet worked great except for losing my bag for 4 days. It was a little stressful filing a lost luggage claim and trying to remember everything in the bag. The bag finally arrived safe and sound so basically for $20 I was able to ship my grossly overweight bag home from Florida. Celebrity called me back today to make sure my bag had arrived safely. It was good to get a follow up call. I met some awesome people, went to some very beautiful places and had perfect weather most of the trip. It was a fantastic week. We had so much fun!! We laughed until we cried. There were some issues I could have addressed if I wanted to but did not bother. I have seen it posted many times that Celebrity is not for everyone. I am not really sure if Celebrity is for me or not. There were some great times, some not so great but no terrible times. In the end, I feel I received what I paid for nothing more, nothing less. I would rate this cruise a 7 out of 10. Read Less

The ship although rehauled was dark, which made it seem dingy. The food in the main dining room, Blu and Tuscan grille were also a let down, especially since we cruised the Mediterranean on the Equinox which is the same class of ship and the food on that was spectacular!! We were disappointed as we were hoping for the same quailty dining experience. The food in the ocean view cafe was, however , very good every day. The ship was spotlessly clean. We even observed them steam cleaning the hand rails! A+ for clean! Room was very comfortable especially the bed, which for me is the most important attribute. Cafe Bacio was excellent and the only place on board you could get a decent cup of tea. Although it will cost uou extra. The tea in ocean view was horrible, like warm dishwater. Very poor quality. Definitely not what you would expect from a Celebrity Cruise. I did hear that they hired an executive from carnival to cut costs. Whether that is true or not the quailty of food has gone downhill considerably. The ports of call were excellent which is why we chose this cruise also the 123 go promotion. However, the excursions were very poorly organized. We lost an hour at the hermitage due to poor cruise opetators.We will not sail with Celebrity again until the food improves. Read Less

We cruise a lot and have tried just about all the major lines. We find the celebrity aqua class fits what we like. We like the Persian garden relaxation room and the Blu restaurant. For that reason we find the buffets (on all ships) to be chaotic and do not enjoy the search for somewhere to sit. All though the way the different food stations are set up is a much better plan than 2 long buffet lines on most ships. Embarkation was easy and fast. we booked transfers from airport to ship, for convenience, but (like every transfer we've experienced) you end up waiting so they have a 40 person bus load, this time our wait was about an hour. Leaving the ship they take care of getting your luggage from your room to the airport. But... when we got to the airport everybody's luggage was stacked outside the one terminal where everyone was dropped off. My husband was trying to help the elder people get their bags as there was no help, it was a huge piled up mess. Any one could have come and taken any bags they wanted. Plus lucky for us this happened to be the terminal we were flying out of, other people had to haul all the their luggage around, which is no easy task at the Amsterdam airport. This cruise itinerary was fabulous, loved every port. As a rule we do not do ship tours, we did our own thing and booked our St Petersburg excursion on line before we left. This ship is set up with lots of tucked away sitting areas, and with the older frequent cruisers on board we never seemed to notice we were on board with 2500 other passengers. Read Less

Mostly everything they have at the restaurants shows up at the buffet sooner or later. Get the beverage package. One thing that is very expensive is the internet. There are not many activities. Not like the old social director days. I didn't like the dance floor much but the public areas are great. The gym is really nice. Shops are very limited. Jewelry bags and artwork. would have preferred more womens wear. Rooms were great. Service was great and people really nice. Entertainment just short of Broadway caliber.

The Celebrity Silhouette might've spoiled me for all future cruises. This was my first cruise and I was blown away by the ship. It was gorgeous and I felt like I was in a high-end hotel for the entire trip. The staff was friendly, the ship was clean and the food was delicious. Getting on the ship was quick and efficient. Our rooms were already ready by the time we got on board. We stayed in an Aqua Class cabin and enjoyed our welcome bottle of sparkling wine. There was more than enough storage (closet, under the bed and over the bed) for all of our luggage. The bathroom was gorgeous and we enjoyed the upgraded shower head. Our room steward kept the room clean and was very friendly. While on board, we ate at Blu, The Mast Grill, The Aqua Spa Cafe, The Ocean View Cafe, The Porch and the Grand Cuvee dining room. We had no complaints with any of the food and all of the staff were very friendly and polite. I was thrilled the bars had Campari on hand so I could over indulge on negronis all week. The pools were very nice. The deck was crowded and finding a chair to lounge on was a bit of a hunt. Our entertainment was good, as was the cruise director, Richard Spacey. Basically, I have nothing to complain about. The Celebrity Silhouette exceeded all of my expectations. S-Class from here on out it is! Read Less
