I had a group of 35 with some people with special dietary needs. I am vegan and the choices were very disappointing . Although my waiter was wonderful and tried very hard to find good dishes he didn't cook the meals. Twice they were so spicy I couldn't eat them. For most of the weeks I ate sweet potatoes and some wonderful vegetables that he brought every night. I have had far better experiences on RCL and P&O. One of the other has celiac and is diabetic also very disappointed in the choice. There are so many with food issues that we both expected much better choices We all enjoyed the cruise but definitely missed the Schooner Bar and felt it lacked nightlife I have a wonderful group coordinator and the head of excursions arranged a wonderful tour of Bonaire. I also missed my virgin Mango Tango I tried to order many times. It was never the same as I had on numerous RCL cruises Read Less

Spent of few days precruise at the Hilton Marina, after all the reviews we found it to be clean, comfortable with a great, helpful staff. Took Uber to port since we were in a Sky Suite we were taken to the lounge where we checked in and were taken right on the ship! Taken to Michael’s where we met Vanessa Solano, the concierge. She was kind and helpful and continued to be smiling and beautiful the whole 10 days. Albert the bartender was always there to remember our order. Went to Luminae where we met some of our favorite servers from previous cruises. Thanks Dominic “the smiling waiter” for your laughs great service. In fact the whole crew under Franko, was fantastic. Went to our room, way in the aft, which we love. Met Imade and Lorenzo who were helpful and kept our room clean with wonderful service for the whole trip. Cabin 1667 has always be our go to cabin on most ships. No noise, a little vibration a day or two but then one of the smoothest trips ever. The ports were Grand Cayman, Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. The beaches were good and the swimming was perfect. Would choose this itinerary again in a second! The entertainment was a band that had the whole house rocking both in the theater and the Grand Foyer. Never saw anything like it, including people riding up and down the elevators dancing!!! Everyone was singing along and they came back, at both shows, with an oncore. It was The Billy McGuigan Rock Band. If you ever see them on a ship we will remember them. Had the privilege of being on the helipad for sailaway in Bonaire. Crew was social and engaged the passengers attending. Food in Luminae could be improved on, they need a change in the menu. The staff was amazing! We did a catamaran sunset cruise, arranged by the ship and saw the most beautiful sunset. We traveled as a couple, celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. Booked another cruise while onboard and look forward to our cruise on the new EDGE next March. Ship goes in for refit in January. Look forward to another cruise on the Silhouette. Read Less

The staff overall are fantastic, as usual not all can be great. The Martini bar staff were an amazing group. The Mast bar staff of men were by far the worst, so just avoid that bar and have a great vacation. The pools are small but we were rarely in them. Most bars were nice, yet we did not hit them all. Food in main dining area was top shelf, were the main buffet area had lots of good food with some average mixed in. There was definitely plenty to choose from. The indian food in the buffet was great. The entertainment crew put on a great dance routine near the end of the trip, my wife being a former dancer was thrilled and moved to tears. Being our first cruise we did not spend much time in the theatre. The casino was a hit with our group, a number of us came home winners. Read Less

We chose this cruise for the time of year and because we had never been to the ABC islands before or on the Silhouette before either. She’s a beautiful ship with a wonderful crew. Very friendly and gracious. Wonderful experience in the MDR, with very good food and service from Randy and Khorizan. Murano was excellent as always and the Lawnclub Grill was great also. We were disappointed in the service at Tuscan Grill, the waiter was fine but the sommelier was invisible till the end of the night when we were already finished. Our cabin being aft, way aft, was a hike to get to and helped burn some of the extra calories consumed on the cruise ;/ It was kept immaculate by our attendant Damellia, who also greeted us with a friendly greeting and big smile both morning and evening. We didn’t go to the ship run shows at night, but the ones brought on were very good to great! Loved Billy McGuiggan! Would definitely love to go again! Read Less

We had a great cruise from embarkation tto disembarkation. We were in a veranda room on Deck 6 that was close to the iLounge & the elevators on the Starboard side. We are early risers and early to bed people and were able to sleep well without outside noise. Our room attendant was excellent. When we returned to the room each day, it had been made up. Even though we rehung our towels on the racks, he switched them out with new ones. He even provided a few flowers in a bud vase early in the cruise. Our dining room staff was great, although the assistant waiter was not very visible. It seemed thatt the main server did all the work. Even in that case, her service was great. The food in the main dining room was good for every meal. We especially enjoyed the bread each evening. We tried the Lawn Club & Sushi on 5 for lunch. We really enjoyed the sushi, but the Lawn Club Grill was just okay. I doubt that we'd try them again. We had breakfast in the main dining room everyday. We had lunch in the main dining room once and we did not really enjoy it at all. We took advantage of our Elite status & went to the Persian Garden on Sunday while the shp was in port in Grand Cayman. It was very relaxing. If we ever book in a suite, I'll definately take advantage of it more often. Overall, it was a great cruise & I can't wait to go again! Read Less

We are fans of Celebrity and this was our first time on the Silhouette. It is a lovely ship, with a very competent and involved crew. Our room was clean, and well-maintained by our cabin steward Enrico. We were with four other couples, and were seated at a table for 10 in the middle of the gorgeous dining room. We had great waiters: Alfi and Robert. The assistant Maitre D', Olga, was especially attentive to our particular needs, and dietary requirements. She made sure that we had plenty to eat and choices that were varied. She even got the chef to prepare some exclusive foods from recipes that we supplied. The ports of call were mostly ones that we've been to on previous cruises. It would be nice if there was more variety in that department. The entertainment was mostly good and varied. But overall, we complained that the volume of music (some might call it noise) during the shows is terribly excessive. I often walked out of the theatre after a 45 minute musical barrage with my ears hurting. Although we complained to the cruise director about it, it didn't do any good. In fact, it is hard to find a bit of peace and quiet on this ship, anywhere. There is music constantly, and usually at very high volume. But, there is so much to do, from games of trivia, to lectures, and demonstrations, internal tours of the ship, and of course, eating. The cafeteria serves a tremendous variety of food, and it's open almost 18 hours a day. On the subject of food: Since we observe the Jewish dietary rules, we were able to prearrange for kosher meat (not the prepared airline dinners) through our travel agent. And we had dinners that included a choice of chicken, lamb, and turkey. Our Maitre d' was especially cognizant of the details of this, and was most helpful. She would help us choose the next evening's dinner in advance, each night. She even arranged for our group to have a supply of custom-made cheese blintzes every morning in the cafeteria. The entire experience was a very good one. The ship was full to capacity, yet one never felt crowded-out. We stayed on-board for the next cruise, in the same cabin. See the next report. Read Less

This is our annual escape from Winter in upstate New York. Empbarkation was smooth & quick. This was our second cruise in Suites . We are hooked, embarkation, Luminae, Michaels Club, and 20 min disembarkation are all worth the extra $$’s to us. Our first “Suites” experience was on Summit last September. Quite frankly that experience was better than what we experienced on Silhouette. Perhaps the ship size?! The evening “cast “ shows continue to disappoint. The highlight was the tenor and a terrific rock group. The ship was hopping to the music so energetically , I was worried we might capsize (just kidding) We were disappointed with the Taste of San Martin excursion, they completely skipped the scheduled cheese event . Our Dominica tour of the waterfalls and Emerald pool was excellent; a chance to experience the rainforest. The St Nevis tour provided an excellent lunch, one of the best seafood meals on our trip. Overall the cruise gave us the respite from snow & cold, otherwise very much like our past Celebrity Cruises. Read Less

Two weeks away with friends, wanted sunshine and being looked after. Celebrity are top notch when it comes to cruising. If i have one criticism it is with their menus, they never change. There were three Chic nights and the first two were just normal menus,mthe final one the big hitters come out, Lobster, Beef Wellington, Duck ala Orange and aleg of Lamb, you cannot eat them all, why oh why can they not be split across the three formal evenings. Entertainment was excellent, just disappointed that the Tenors of Rock could not be brought on, lol. Dont like Jugglers, Magicians butbitherwise a great rick band, comedian and two vicalists Staff superb Ports of call good, some great some we got straight back on board. Dominica still not fullt recovered from Hurricanes. The ship ran out of Red Stripe and Miller after four days, or so I was told. Wine choices on classic packages are limited, is that a ploy Celebrity Overall loved the cruisev Read Less

We choose this cruise because we hadn't been to 2 of the islands. The shore excursions were very good. We also enjoyed the food in the buffet more than many ships. Only went to the main dining room once, the service there was not very good. Also, the cabin stewarts were not the best. We could be gone for 6 hours at time, and the room would still not be done. We had to constantly walk back upstairs to wait. I enjoy playing bingo while on a cruise and they have an antiquated system on that ship. Also the projector was not working properly in the room where it was held, so you couldn't review all the numbers. Also, the activities staff always seemed to be rushing through all the activities. Perhaps not enough staff? One good point is that there was many areas to smoke. Overall, a good cruise. Read Less

As Celebrity Elite Plus, we have experienced a transition in Celebrity cruises from peaceful and relaxing to LOUD at a point that it is difficult to find a quiet place to relax and read a book. Every event has the volume so loud we found it necessary to wear ear plugs. The ship itself was great, the food was superior, the staff very helpful and friendly....our only point of dissatisfaction was the noise level. In the evening in our stateroom and also in walking the passageway to our stateroom, we would constantly hear the boom, boom, boom of heavy bass. If we visited a lounge we found it impossible to carry on a conversation due to the high volume. If this is what we were seeking in a cruise, we would have gone to a competitor who is known for their loud music etc., and we could have done it at a much less expensive fare. Read Less
