Myself, wife and daughters went on the Silhouette last month. They had all been on a cruise before but for me it was the first time. Generally I have to say that it was everything I thought it would be, in a positive way. ALL the staff were excellent (with one exception) and could not do enough for the passengers. Both of our cabins (next door to each other) were fabulous. FOOD: An excellent standard for every meal. We ate every evening in the main restaurant at approx 8.15 at a table for four. Having previously paid for gratuities (an American obsession!) we did not have to stick to one of the two sittings. Really, really good food at every meal. The main cafe/restaurant on Level 14 always had a plentiful supply of everything. ENTERTAINMENT: Rich, Rachel and Sarah were absolutely superb. Whatever they are paying these guys, it's not enough! Extremely amusing, always going the extra mile and very professional....all three of them. Well done! The captain took part in a variety of events and was also superb. He is informative, has an excellent sense of humour and really cares about his profession. All the shows were of a high standard. I am 'in the business' and thought that the singers and dancers on this ship were outstanding. PORTS OF CALL: Cozumel-OK. Grand Cayman-Lovely. Jamaica-OK. Haiti-OK. Excursions are VERY expensive and there is a constant call on all passengers to do one or two. We as a family did an excursion in Jamaica (Martha Brae) which was excellent but at $400 I think it's 'over the top'. DRINKS: I think the drinks packages are pricey but then it all depends on how much you want to drink on a daily basis. WIFI: I needed wifi for business during the cruise and it was $200 for the week. In port the general reception is good and of course you can get free wifi in cafes and bars. Out at sea, the ship's wifi is adequate although a little slow. It was worthwhile though. Referring to an earlier comment about one exception with staff, I found the Guest Relations desk disappointing. On three occasions I had questions to ask there and I just didn't get the information I wanted. The staff just didn't seem to know to be honest. Caring but a bit clueless. All in all though, very positive feelings from the cruise. A lovely, well maintained ship with an excellent team led by a superb captain.
