Celebrity Silhouette Cruise Review by VetDrm
- Sail Date: September 2016
- Destination: Western Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Concierge Class
We booked the pre-cruise package giving us 3 nights in Rome before boarding the ship. The pick-up from the hotel was a bit hectic only because we weren't sure where the Celebrity rep would be located amongst the hundreds of people. Then we had to lug our own luggage a fair distance and get it loaded onto our van. The hotel was nice, our room a bit small and dark. But we were there to explore the city, not stay in our room. The Celebrity tours in Rome were good, not great. The meals provided on the tours were good. We loved our tour guide. Rome is a very crowded city and it was quite hot and humid. There were long lines at each attraction. Needless to say, we are glad we visited this city, but probably wouldn't return.
The transfer to the ship was wonderful and check in was quick.
We enjoyed the ship, it is beautiful and well maintained. Our room steward was attentive and kept our cabin clean. We were in the Concierge class and I don't think we'll pay extra for that again as I didn't feel we really got any perks.
The food was good, both in the main dining room and the café. We did not dine in the Specialty restaurants. We did have the premium beverage packages as we enjoy martinis and wines, as well as the coffee beverages.
Our favorite place to enjoy a cocktail outside was the Lawn Club and indoors, we enjoyed the Martini Bar.
I did use the Fitness Center and it was quite good. The Salon is terribly overpriced.
The entertainment was fantastic, best we've ever seen!
The Celebrity excursions were hit and miss. If you can book your own, we did in one port and were so glad we did.
All in all, it was a wonderful cruise and we will sail with Celebrity again.
