Sailed out of Fort Lauderdale (1st time) and what a breeze. Embarkation was smooth and concierge class and above is the only way to go. Disembarkation was just as smooth. Lounge with coffee/juice and pastries was available on the ship while we waited for our time to disembark. The customs system at the port is smooth (picture taken) which eliminates the long line ups to be interviewed by custom officials. The ship was clean but a little outdated. We understand it is due for an overhaul...new carpet, room color, etc. Will make it much better. They need to understand that no one used the grass area. Great for publicity but not practical. Could make additional seating for guests on the top back deck (bar area). Cabanas were used by 1 couple on the whole trip. I think over priced and another item that could be eliminated. Dining: we have learned that it is not worth eating at the main dining area. We found the same food at the cafeteria and more relaxed and less crowded. The cafeteria food is bland but seasoning is available everywhere. Understand that everyone has different tastes, it is better to be bland and season your food (ie salt/pepper) to your liking. They did have Ox tail in the cafeteria that was exceptional. We (and others) requested to the chef to have it served again. Low and behold, 2 days later there it was (not something they usually do). The chef even made a point to let us know when it would be available. Nice touch.Specialty dining is hit and miss. Sushi on 5 was great. Fresh and appetizing. The Porch , not so much. Without improvements, it could go. Over priced, small protions and the food was not that fresh or tasty. Lobster bisque was the best part of the meal. The seafood tower was very disappointing. Entertainment: probably the least attractive item on the ship. Again, thru past sailings, we found the entertainment to be average at best. Don't expect Jersey Boys, Cats, Seinfeld or David Copperfield. Usually home grown and again average at best. Casino: Very nicely laid out. Staff was amazing. Very talkative, not pushy and that goes for servers to dealers to management...Joseph, Amy, Sol, Lou, Diedra, Hania, Charlene, and yes, you too Kyle. I know I missed some names, my apologies. Celebrity needs to loosen up the slots ! They need to know that any winnings on average just get put back into the machines. Probably the worse payouts of all our cruises. We have only cruised Celebrity and will continue to do so, but we are hoping the refurbishment and maybe some other changes will keep them at the top. Time will tell. Read Less

We are loyal to Celebrity, have been on 17 long cruises and until this one have always been happy with Celebrity. Our air arrangements (Choice Air) booked directly with Celebrity were a nightmare. What should have been no more than 4 or 5 hours turned out to be closer to 14 hours. If it had been weather related we would have accepted it but when we booked the air we were not given a choice of arrangements, we had to go with AA which was very bad. Due to a problem with the first leg of the flight they (AA) bounced us all over the place and refused to change to another airline. Instead of possibly booking us with another airline they squeezed us in the last row (no windows) and directly across from the lavatories. It was miserable. We spent many hours between flights. We had left our hotel in Manchester, NH at 6:30 am for a 8:45 flight which should have got us to FLL mid afternoon. We had to take a ride to Boston (80mph) to take a flight to Miami (not Ft. Lauderdale) and arrived at out hotel there after 9pm. My advice is not to trust Guaranteed flights by Celebrity. The ship itself is lovely as are all ships in this category. The meals in the main dining room were for the most part very much like what I remember at the school cafeteria. Small (measly) amounts of less than prime cuts. A lot of cheap cuts and sometimes tiny amounts. They were nothing like we have enjoyed even since 5 months ago. We had a good amount of cabin credit and used it to book 3 ship tours. St. Martin Beach and lunch was awful, Magens Bay was pretty but very crowded and the last one to Nevis on a catamaran was the best tour we've had in the Caribbean in years. We would book it again in a heartbeat. The service on the ship was great and we like almost all the shows. The ship is very nice. Our main complaints were about the air arrangements and the less than satisfying meals, Read Less

Best cruise ever - my 45th with Celebrity. Everyone out did themselves to make our trip the best as it possibly could be. Embarkation was a breeze. Was on the ship by 1030. Ship was the cleanest and friendliest of all of the Solstice ships I have been on. Fantastic attention to detail. The meals were exceptional, everywhere! I would highly recommend going to the Dining Room for lunch on Sea Days. The entertainment was also very good - the Celebrity Dancers are really amazing and I could watch them for hours! Ports of call with the exception of Dominica (which should be struck - what a waste of a day) were top notch! Lots of things to see and to do. One thing though -I will not be cruising on the Celebrity Edge - we were parked beside it in St Martin, and those infinity balconies are a complete joke. If I pay for a balcony, I expect a balcony!! I think Celebrity Corporate made a huge strategic faux pas and will find these new ships harder to fill up in the future after the "pink cloud" wears off. Just returning to the Silhouette, there are some key individuals who merit comment: Jamie, the Hotel Director, Jeremy, the Activities Director and all of the staff at the Cafe al Bacio, especially Bianca and Staywill. All of them made our cruise very memorable. Thanks so much. Read Less
