Really good itenerary on an excellent ship. We were Aqua Class and Blu was excellent. Had the premium package and the wine was sublime. Enjoyed a good meal in the MDR with friends. Did not use the speciality restaurants. Buffet lunch on the rear deck was a great spot. Wife demanded the healthy cafe for breakfast St Thomas was okay. Did a snorkel cruise on a sailboat with Captain Mike which was 3 star - loads of unnecessary rules and poor reef. St Marten did the Celebrity arranged Americas Cup racing on paired 19 metre yachts. - excellent and an adrenaline rush (I sail and have raced so.....). Great tour with Cosol tours in St Lucia. The beach was pretty rubbish though but great boat ride there. Volcanic bath was fun. Ship arranged white water tubing in Dominica was fun. Lost my sandal so wear don’t sit on them as I turned over. We went to Shipyard in Carlisle Bay Barbados - okay. Why do these places always have banging music. Great value if you do the snorkel which I am told was good. Did the snorkel and catamaran trip in Grenada - really good. All in another great Celebrity Cruise. Have booked up another to South America in 2020 Read Less

Post cruise thoughts. We booked this cruise because we loved the Celebrity Equinox and were told this is the sister ship and exactly the same. It is mostly the same but some important differences. No bar in the back of the ship on deck 14. A underutilized Master Celler wine area and just not the service level we expected. While we enjoyed our cruise I was disappointed with Celebrity in many ways. Mostly with the entertainment. Being a Musician I am probably more critical of the music and shows than most would be. And I must say that the quality of all the musicians was excellent. However I thought most of the music in the lounges was inappropriate for the age of the crowd and there was not enough of it. Even the PA music was hip hop, pop and even rap. Really? Did they not look at the age of the crowd? Only Ocean 5 and the Silhouette orchestra met my taste. I know it's different strokes for different folks and there were passengers from many different countries, but BR4 was playing mostly slow Latin beats and seemed to have a repetoire of about 20 songs. Listing them as a dance band was ludicrous when you saw very few people dancing to their music. Again they are fine musicians but wrong for the crowd which had to average 65 years of age. Also they looked pretty bored and like some others, playing for their own amusement and satisfaction. Angie Hernandez soloist was very good, in the Ensemble for listening. The same for the string duo. But I didn't go on a cruise to sit and listen. The string duo was actually putting me to sleep. I know many like that but I want to party. Dallas Bridge duo were building their background music with what is known as a looper. In effect they were creating backing tracks by recording and multi layering song parts over one another until it was sufficient for them to play and sing to. This takes a lot of talent and expertise but I really didn't want to listen to 4 to 5 minutes of creating their backing track for a 3 minute song. After 1 or 2 songs it became tedious and boring for the listener. Basically in the evening there were 3 places to hear music, Ensemble, Sky, Grand Foyer. They did not run simultaneously. Many nights we had no place to go to dance. Only Sky lounge was large enough to accommodate a crowd, During the sea day there was the pool and maybe deck 15 occasionally. Basically 1 soloist, 2 duos and 2 dance bands for 2500 people in 3 locations at separate times for 12 nights. Huh? for As for the shows, I thought most were amateurish and corny. Only "Uptown" blew away most people. They are one of the best acts I've seen anywhere. The comedian Dan ???? on our last night was also very good. After the first 3 shows we basically stopped going. The dining room food to me was a 7 or 8 out of 10. My table mates rated it lower. In my opinion the specialty restaurants were way over priced. We did try Q-sine when it had a sale, but the lobster tail was tiny and tasteless and the filet mignon was the same as well as dry. The projected chef was a clever idea we enjoyed. Dining room service was excellent as were the bar servers. My room attendant was new and not very good though she tried hard. Many days our room was not made up until after 3 and every night my bed was short-sheeted. My wife cut her foot on broken glass in our cabins carpet. I sensed a real cut back on employees. This was my 18th cruise and it ranked there as well. I guess I remember the old days at Celebrity when they were a notch above the rest. I remember when waiters used to carry your buffet tray to your table; The kitchen staff used to parade around the Dining room with the baked Alaska and Cherries Jubilee: Specialty Restaurants were $15 to $25; etc. etc. Still as I said up front, we enjoyed our vacation and will cruise again. Last year we cruised Equinox and loved it, and we are scheduled for Equinox next April. Maybe this was just a Silhouette problem. I should say that I find the size and layout of the ocean view room to be about the best we've seen. But I used to lean towards Celebrity. No more. I will go where the best deals are. Maybe it's time to try one of the Mega ships. Read Less

We have sailed on 5 Celebrity cruises, Equinox, Eclipse twice on Reflection and first time on Silhouette. We love Celebrity for the low key, kick back relaxing atmosphere. we are 55 and 62 years old. So not young and not ancient. Celebrity really does treat guest with respect. (except maybe Guest Relations, they need to work on this) We choose Celebrity mainly for the duration and ports. plus the bang for the buck is awesome with the perks they offer. Getting on the ship is amazing fast and well organized, we always fly the red eyes. And arrive at port around 10am and are checked in and on the boat by 11ish. Getting off this time was a breeze. with the face recognition they do we just walk out once we found out cases. Amazing. This time we did an excursion on Grenada, Ultimate Sea, Sun and Fun Cruise . Well worth the money for sure. Snorkel at the underwater sculptor park and another area, then a wonderful lunch on Calypso Island, which is a rock formation with a restaurant at the top. It was amazing. St Lucia we booked an outside vendor Ambrose tours to Joulise Beach. Would not recommend at all. Not worth the cost at all. Sugar Beach is amazing on the resort side of the dock, the Public side is a grimy rocky beach. But you are able to go over to the resort side for sand and swimming. Public side did have snorkeling area. Next time we will probably just taxi it to Rodney Bay or Pegeon Island. I think Celebrity should think about removing Dominica from its Itinerary. We had stopped there on a previous trip and was not thrilled at stopping there again. I only got off the ship to walk through the vendors and back on again. The Ship is looking a little old but I understand it will be going into drydock next January. Can't wait to see it, as we booked next years on Silhouette again. We love Barbados and always just taxi over to Harbor Lights and have a good beach day. St. Martin we loved in the past because we would go over to Orient bay, but after the hurricane we now just beach day it usualy outside Kokonuts which is closed now but still have access to Chairs and umbrella we negotiate price for that and bucket of beer. We booked late so we were given a cabin on the 6th deck with the life boats. not great but it did ok for us. On board Dinning was good. We tried Quisine Le Petit Chef for the first time. It was fun but would not do it again. Lawn Club Grill is amazing. did that one twice. Main Dinning room we actually only ate there twice. Not for any fault of theirs but because after a few buckets of beer on the beaches we just relaxed and ate at the Buffet. Which is nice and chill. Variety is good, something for every one. Entertainment was alright. Not to impressed with the first production show cant even remember the name.. Second production Pearl was good. Some of the other shows did not interest us, did even bother going in. Not for us, but could be great for others. Read Less

Well it has been a couple of weeks and I am finally finding time to sit down and write a review of our March 15, Silhouette 9-night Southern Caribbean cruise. I will hold no punches, but unfortunately (or fortunately) there are few punches to hold. Day 1. Our cruise started, as always, with embarkment. The Silly was docked at the new Terminal 25. My thoughts where we were finally going to be able to test out if this terminal was all cracked up to its hype. Well, yes it did. Since we were in the suites, we had a separate entrance. From the time we took a foot into the terminal until the time we stepped into Michaels Club was maybe 10 minutes. The reason it was so long is that I stopped in the restroom right before the group of waiting passengers were escorted on board. DH and I had to wait for the next group to be escorted by my new bestie, Venessa, the Michaels club concierge. I swear, on embarkment and disembarkment days she must put in at least 50,000 steps and always with a smile on her face. For people not in suites, I heard similar stories from the other passengers. There were few lines and getting on board was a breeze. Once we hit Michael’s club, we were greeted by staff, crew and some officers. I’m sure part of the reason we have so many faces is that, they think, us suite people will be willing to open our purse strings quicker than some others. And of course, one of the first persons to greet us was from Canyon Spa. Although this can seem like a sales pitch as she offered to give me a shoulder massage, I knew what I wanted. DH LOVES the Persian Garden. Since they only sell a few full passes outside of the Aqua class, this gave me the chance to snag the passes so DH could be happy. Soon it was off to Laminae for lunch. (hint: One dish I enjoy is Chicken and Waffles. I found out the only time this is served is embarkment day.) Then to our rooms to drop off our bags, meet our room attendant (Su) and our butler (Suren). At this time, I explained to Suren that we were going to have a little get together (30 to 40 people) at the end of our cabin crawl. Could he put out a little spread? Since we and a couple of our friends had brought wine on board for this, we shouldn’t need more than one bottle of wine. Then it is off to the muster drill. These drills are getting less and less painful. When we first started cruising, I remember standing outside next to the lifeboats as the crew yelled over the crowd hoping everyone could hear. Now, if you arrive early enough, you can find some nice seating, strike up a conversation with your new found friends and wait for the short video of dubious entertainment quality. I actually think it is a little hokey, but it is humorous and does get the points across. After the drill, we are off to our tradition of meeting up with our newest best friends we have yet to meet, the Cruise Critic gang. Our meeting spot, the Sunset Bar, is configured different than Reflection, which has the bar set in a circle. I really like the Silhouette’s (and other S-class) configuration. I think it is more conducive to sitting around with your new friends. As we entered our cabin, after the muster drill, our cabin phone was ringing. It turns out that because of some issue with the registration, they didn’t have us as being on-board. the customer server asked us if we made it to the ship. I so wanted to say “no, I’m still at the pier waving at you.” After dinner, it was off to the show, a comedian, Daran Howard. But first, the captain and his officers were introduced. Unlike other ships we have been on, the officers were always visible and interacting with the guests. Our ritual at the end of the evening was to stop at Michaels Club for a night cap. Albert was always there with a smile on his face and quick service. For the first couple of days, he took our order and promptly returned with drinks in hand. Well, we are very predictable. After a couple days, we sat down and the drinks would magically appear at our table. How he was able to remember all of his clients and what they prefer is amazing. Day 2 Now our first full sea day and the cabin crawl. We were to have the cabin crawl right after the meet and greet. Since we were the final cabin, I wanted to make sure that everything was in place. But, as we checked in before going to Cellar Master, the room was not made up and Suren, our butler was not around. I just hoped they would finish before I brought by the gang of cruise critics. For the Meet and Greet, the Cruise Critic get together, I was impressed that so many of the officers came to say Hello. I do wish they had something a little more than coffee, but the captain did welcome us and stated that our opinion does matter and we should not hesitate to search out an officer if we have concerns. Now, the portion of the cruise I was anxious to get done, the Cabin Crawl. I enjoy the fun, but I am always so sure that something is going to go horribly wrong. It is so nice to see the different types of cabins. I was impressed with the Inside Cabin. I had this idea it would be dark and dingy and crowded. It was amazingly spacious. We had a good selection of cabins and each was well appointed. But now was time for my cabin. This is where the rubber meets the road. There was to be 30+ people, hanging around, at least momentarily, in my cabin and I was not able to check what was setup before I got there. Well, Suren and Su had done their best work. The cabin looked spotless and somehow, everyone was able to fit. People were everywhere, but that is what it is all about. And Suren was stopping in every once in a while to make sure we didn’t need anything else. As we were leaving, Su was rushing in to clean up and put the cabin back in order. I thought to myself, THIS IS THE WAY TO THROW A PARTY. We decided to book an alcove for the day. Since I hate chair hogs, this seemed to be a perfect solution and since there were two other couples we were hanging around with, this gave us enough room to comfortably sit and talk and a beautiful view of the ocean and grass and enjoy sipping sparkling wine. OK. Complaint time. First, the sparkling wine was average. I think it would be nice if they offered an upcharge for a better bottle of wine. Also, since it was so windy, stemless wine glasses please. The entertainment was All McCartney Live, a Paul McCartney cover band. Since I grew up on the Beatles, I thoroughly enjoyed it. But more than that, I was talking to a huge McCartney fan, who praised the band up and down. There is something special about evening chic night, even if you are not a huge fan. It seems everything is a little more elegant, people are in a more upbeat mood and officers are all around. (I love seeing men in uniforms.) Day 3 Our first port of call was tendering at Grand Cayman. I had booked a handicap accessible excursion purposely because it was a tender, I thought that the guides would help us to the pier. That was not the case. We were to meet on the pier. But, it really was not an issue getting on the tenders. And I wonder, if the reason we met on the pier was to not have all these wheelchairs descending on the tenders all at once. By the time we headed to shore, the water was rather choppy. Getting in the boat was a little tricky, but the crew managed it well. In the true nature of Celebrity, they quickly reacted and moved the tenders to the starboard side to help minimize the waves hitting the boats. Our tour guide was professional and very adapt at handling all the mobility issues, never skipping a beat. Seeing so many turtles in so stages of life is fun and interesting. Kids really enjoy getting into the water with the turtles. Hell has such interesting rock formations. The best part is being able to send a postcard from Hell. Some great lines could be “since you didn’t join us our vacation went to Hell.” Some bad ideas are sending a postcard to your boss with “Which you were here.” We were back in time to enjoy a Mast Grill hamburger and just enjoy the beautiful weather. The Mast Grill does a great burger and fries. Day 4 Next comes another sea day. I woke up early and decided that I wasn’t going to waste the day. So, I pulled on my swimsuit headed down to the Spa Pool, found the perfect lounger before the chair hogs and laid down and fell asleep. Hours later, when the rest of my lazy group got up, they woke me up by texting me to meet them at Café Bacio. And now the most disappointing part of our cruise. Tracy, from the Cruise Critic group, had offered to head the Cruise Critic slot pull. She did an amazing job of organizing the group, working with the casino to find a good time. But the casino did not do their part. They were supposed to give us a winning machine. Instead, we pretty much broke even. Even though we had a great time cheering each other on and just enjoying the new found friends, couldn’t Celebrity have found a slot machine worthy of our group. LOL. We were thrilled when we heard that the entertainment tonight was Jesse Hamilton Jr. We had seen him on other cruises and greatly enjoyed him. He has great vocal range and a true entertainer. He has starred The Lion King as Simba. Day 5 And now another perfect day, Aruba. Since this is about Celebrity, I will not go overboard about our excursion with Aruba Trikes, but if you want to do something a little different than the beach, what could be more fun than riding a Motor Trike around this beautiful island. Since we were not leaving the island until midnight, we decided to take a break from restaurants on board and trying out Barefoot, a very well-reviewed restaurant in town. It was nice to have to true Caribbean restaurant experience. Day 6 Curacao was another amazing island. We decided that we would just relax, find a nice pub to have lunch and do some shopping. We found a cute restaurant, Iguana Café, next to Queen Emma Bridge. It is so charming to watch the pontoon bridge open and close. Now, the reason I love traveling with my DH. Our friends were shopping for jewelry at Diamond International. She found a necklace, but didn’t want to spend that much. I had just asked to look at a necklace I thought was pretty, with no intention of buying it, just biding my time while she looked. Next thing, DH is bartering for a price if we bought both pieces. He loves this game of negotiating for the best price, even if he had no intentions of buying jewelry before he started. We walked away with both pieces at a good price. That night was a full moon, so Celebrity celebrated a White night, Full Moon party around the pool. The house band, Ocean’s Five, was rocking and the whole pool area was lit up with pop-up performers in the pool. The radar towers were illuminated as if they were full moons. Just a great time. Day 7 In Bonaire, we decided to rent golf carts from Bonaire Cruisers. Again, this was not through the ship. But if you want to see the island on your own, this is a very affordable and fun way to see the island. Bonaire is a lovely island and having golf carts allowed us to pull over and hop on and hop off whenever we saw something we wanted to check out a little more. I don’t know how this happens, but we get so wrapped up with talking with friends, we miss the show. Although we love the shows, we have found so many new friends that we find at least one a cruise, we send the night sitting around the bar talking and getting to know new people. We have met so many wonderful people who have become friends and cruising partners. Day 8 Our favorite days are sea days. Today is also the second chic night. How can you not love a day of sun and fun and a night of wine, steak and lobster? As always, Celebrity really knows how to treat you right. Most of this day was spent just hanging out with our friends. And of course, no cruise is complete without spending time with Future Cruises booking our next trip (or trips). Day 9 On last sea day, a day to relax and connect with the new friends you have met. Café Bacio is our place to meet. We can sit there and relax with an ice tea for hours. Unfortunately, those tempting cookies and pastries are call to us. And the smell of the Gelato Bar is torturing. But, after all this is vacation. Day 10 Boo-hoo. Disembarkment day is always a bad day, but the disembarkment was poorly run. This was not Celebrity’s fault. The had only 2 to 3 port agents when there should have been 4. Also, there was confusion about the Suite priority line. (Yes, if I paid for it, I will insist on using it.) As a suite guest we were supposed to have an expedited line. No one in the terminal were acknowledging it. Since my DH has mobility issues, if we know this would happen, we would have rethought about when we were leaving the ship. Poor Venessa, who was supposed to be escorting us off the ship, had to also handle a passenger who had issues with his statement. Things were finally resolved, but I learned, if you have Global Entry, BRING YOUR CARD WITH YOU. That line was flowing quickly. Final Thoughts Final thoughts. I had been a little panicked because we have never really dealt with wheelchair accessibility issues before. Our friends, who we had invited to join us had mobility issues, I was nervous about what we could do and the logistics of getting around. Celebrity did more than I could have hoped or even thought was possible. The only issue we had were sometimes, people in the elevators were not as accommodating as they could be. (You know who you are!) You are on vacation. Do you have to shove your way to the front of the line ahead of people in wheelchairs, who were waiting before you. But even at the ports, cab drivers and tour guides knew just how to handle the wheelchairs with ease. Silhouette was immaculate. I'm not sure how they do it, but I never saw any trash anywhere on the ship. I think they have invisible elves picking up any stray piece of paper or empty coffee cup. We have been on many cruises with Celebrity, Silhouette's staff was heads above the others. That is a difficult task since the other cruises were outstanding. I haven't cruised another line in years and I can't think of a reason to switch. Read Less

Really enjoyed this 9 nt on Silhouette. Plenty of sea days to relax and interesting ports. Crew was awesome everywhere. Will miss the ones leaving and looking forward to seeing the others again. Anxious to see her after refurb next year for the 12 nt. EXCEPT for getting rid of Cellar Masters. Very sad about that. Have to wonder where we will find good wine when it isn't time for lunch or dinner. Not sure what Celebrity is thinking with this attempted re-branding and they aren't telling. Casino hostess, Amy, had everything ready for us at the Slot Pull. The casino staff was very congenial and checked on us several times during our hour or so. Would have rather had better luck, but I think everyone had a good time. Luminae staff was great and Kati at Cellar Masters went above and beyond with a great horizontal 2007 wine tasting for 9 of us. Just hope we will be able to find her next year without the lounge.

We had never been to the ABC's and wanted to check them out. We had been to Grand Cayman twice before so we only did a walk about but we did bus tours on the ABC's which were well organized and paced just right. They were colourful and we enjoyed seeing a wide area of the islands on the tours we took. Our dining room experience was enhanced by the Waiter and his assistant who worked as a team to ensure our meal time was pleasant and enjoyable. The sommelier was very knowledgeable in the wine she suggested. The only negative in the dining room was the person who was supposed to serve the pop and alcohol drinks they were non-existent and the sommelier took care of it for us. The entertainment was a 10 out of 10 with a good variety over the 9 days. The Silhouette dancers/singers were wonderful and top notch. We love the Silhouette and look forward to our next cruise. We have been on both the Equinox and the Silhouette but feel the Silhouette is our favourite. Read Less

We have sailed on the Silhouette previously. Love the ship, perhaps our favorite Celebrity Ship. We were in a Celebrity Suite. Check in at terminal 25 went quickly. We were on the ship about 10:30 AM. We proceeded to Michael's club and met Vanessa, the Michael's Club concierge. She was great and helped to facilitate multiple reservations. We also saw Rose, the Captains club Hostess. She as always was great. We had lunch in Luminae. The staff also was always meeting our needs for special requests. However, we preferred the specialty restaurants for dinner. We then proceeded to our suite at about 1:00. Our butler Surin was also excellent- enjoyed breakfast on our balcony and in the suite. We used to get white table clothes, but apparently no longer used. Su our stateroom attendant was also wonderful and keep our suite immaculate and well stocked. We even found Maja from the shops excellent. The entire staff was great. We had dinner in Qsine- which was changed to a wonderful show and dinner venue. It was better then any Disney dining room experience. While I really enjoyed the old Qsine menu, we did dine in Qsine twice on our cruise. We also enjoyed dinner at the Tuscan grill and Murano's. Our favorite specialty restaurant, the Lawn Club grill was excellent, we also had dinner at the Lawn Club Grill twice. We enjoyed spending time in an Alcove on Sea Days and had excellent service from the Alcove team. Only negative comment is when we went to the sunset bar near our alcove, we experienced horrible offensive Cigar smoke from two smokers. The wind allowed to smoke and smell to move into the no smoking area, as the smokers sat on the board of smoking and non smoking- Celebrity has a great no smoking policy in the Casino, and all internal areas of the ships. However, cigar's should be banned from the ship. The Captain Georgios Latrou was visible throughout the cruise- always a smile . We enjoyed taking photos as we had the photo package- what fun and great picture memories. I had my hair styled twice by Jose who was also great. Didn't use any other spa services. The shows were disappointing. Celebrity clearly dosen't invest in entertainment. Mostly one guest performers a night- also a couple of production shows that were poor. The dancers and singers talented by the shows had no substance. For great shows, we love Royal Oasis class ships. The internet was great- no connection problems. Disembarkation was easy and fast. We also were able to use the luggage valet program which was excellent and very worthwhile. We had laundry done- and I just recommend that you limit what you launder to underwear, sleepwear and tee shirts that aren't expensive as they use very hot water and detergent. We loved as usual, lthe Martini Bar. Didn't participate in any enrichment activities as non interested us. As always Cafe Al Bacio was wonderful. Enjoyed spending time their daily. StilWell at Al Bacio was great- he remembered my name and order. The ports were great, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao and Grand Cayman. I am sure we will sail on the Silhouette again! Read Less

It has been a few years since we cruised on Celebrity so thought we would try it again, especially since we liked going to the ABC islands. Arrived at the port at 11:15. Registration was fast and we were on the ship by 11:30. The aft balcony room was great. Room attendant was super. Room was always cleaned and ice was always available. Concierge class hor dourves were not very appealing. Taryn, the Concierge, was very helpful. Activities on the ship were the normal offerings. The theatre shows and presenters brought onto the ship were very good, The ship show had "Rap" music and was not very good, especially for an older crowd which was most of the ship. The casino was 100% non-smoking, which I appreciated. The food in the main dining room was a little disappointing with limited choices and similar menu items each night. Food itself was just so-so. The best part of the meal was the wait staff and the sommelier who were terrific. Only took one excursion, Aruba Scenic Cruise and Beach Break. The catamaran was overcrowded and the beach break time was very limited. Departure was smooth and quick. Arrived at a different terminal than we departed from so had to take the shuttle to the parking lot in the port. Shuttle was waiting just had to wait until it was full. Celebrity is still a good cruise line, just not as good as a few years ago Read Less

This was our first time on Celebrity and we thought it was better than others we have experienced ( NCL, RCCL and Princess ). Great mixed crowd, few children and great service from the time we entered the ship until the end. We enjoyed the main dining room and loved Murano. We were extremely disappointed in The Porch, but hey, that's bound to be a few glitches. Entertainment was good, especially the Paul McCartney tribute show and Silent Disco. Would definitely cruise Celebrity again. My only real complaint was the long, long line to get through Customs..... We met so many great people and laughed until our sides hurt. This particular cruise was 9 days and we had 4 full days at sea. So relaxing. We saw the ABC islands and liked Curacao best. Swam and snorkeled with sea turltles.Beautiful down town area with pastel buildings. We plan to go back for a week next year! Read Less

we had previously only cruised with P&O but felt their standards had slipped and decided to try Celebrity cruises. We cruises southern Caribbean and from start to finish the Staff made us welcome and help made our cruise. The layout of the ship was good and easy to get around considering the size of the ship. It was clean and food excellent in all areas. The entertainment was OK but not great, perhaps not to our liking but speaking with other guests some thought it was good. we prefer to explore on our own and did this by foot in the towns of port, we particularity like saint maarten. Locals were friendly and the water station and cool towels before you returned to the ship was welcome as it was warm. Our waiter at dinner and his team were very good, wine waitress was good and kept our glasses topped up without having to be asked. We enjoyed it so much we booked another cruise while on board.
