We chose this cruise to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary paying full price at the start of the year, first time ever cruising so expected to be wowed! Our room is clean and comfortable and we have no complaints there. The main pool area is in my mind ‘Benidorm on Sea’ loud, packed like sardines next to each other and with children dominating the very small pool. People reserving beds. We have resulted in either sitting in a chair on the back deck or lying uncomfortably on the grass. I did make a complaint about this but I did not receive any further correspondence. Food is excellent, large choice offered with choice of self service and formal dining. However all meals are warm only not hot as they should be. Some fellow passengers do not make an effort to dress for dinner which is disappointing and not as expected on a higher calibre of cruising company. Frustrating to know that some passengers have paid half the price we have during sale periods and that children are free. Evening entertainment is good in the main stage area however late evening disco/band for over 25’s is non existent apart from a silent disco, great fun but finishes way too early. First day on board we joined a guided tour of the ship to be told the Silhouette is having a full refurb at the end of the year. It does look tired in some areas.

Disappointed not what we expected
