Full disclosure is that we are impressed with the Celebrity brand - we love what they have to offer, we feel wholeheartedly that they deliver an outstanding experience. That said, this cruise and the next (we did back to back, on board ... Read more

My disappointment is more on the Oceanview Buffet and the value we paid. First of all, the food was generally good in the main dining and the service was better in comparison to our last Princess cruise. But the buffet was just so so and ... Read more

A little bit about us. We are late fifties, well-travelled and have cruised on Princess, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Silver Seas and Oceania. I have 103 reviews on Trip Advisor and have 97,000 readers. We were attracted to this cruise ... Read more

A group of 8, all very experienced cruisers (my wife and I are the least experienced), having cruised together before, chose this as our next great cruise. We all booked as soon as it became available, and mostly we were Acqua Class and ... Read more

Our Baltic Sea cruise on the Celebrity Silhouette in August, 2015, was excellent. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was great - we ate in the buffet for breakfast and lunch, and in the main dining room for dinner each ... Read more

We have sailed over 20 times on large ships, small ships and river cruises. This was our third Celebrity cruise although our last one was several years ago. The main point of this review is to advise fellow cruisers to not choose Concierge ... Read more

Itinerary and specialty restaurants were great. I can only think of 2 reasons someone might like this cruise: 1. You like large crowds (~2900 passengers); 2. You have enough points to defray the added costs. We purchased thru Celebrity ... Read more

This was our 10th cruise since 1998. This was our second cruise with Celebrity (the first in 2000) and have previously cruised with Windstar, Azamarra, Holland America and NCL. Although we prefer smaller ships we decided to give this a try ... Read more

We take cruises for access to the locations, not the activities. Our prior cruises were on much smaller boats, so I was apprehensive about taking this cruise with 2800 people on one ship. We were very pleasantly surprised to find the ... Read more

This was our second time sailing on the Silhouette. We had been in Amsterdam for 4 days so we walked to the terminal and were able to board right away. No lines. We did have to wait in public rooms until the staterooms were available so ... Read more

Just my thoughts, I would like to say we had a wonderful time sharing our cabin with our beautiful granddaughter. She is 16 in a few days and this was her first cruise to Europe. It was delightful to watch her experience the wonderful port ... Read more

We tried Celebrity because we heard the food was a little better than other lines. We did not find this true at all. The main dining room had the same breakfast menu everyday. The dinner menu had plenty to choose from and the dishes ... Read more

We are a retired couple in our 60's and have been on about 10 cruises before this one. Great ship, great cruise, loved our cabin on Deck 7, didn't care much for the entertainment, but then we rarely are. Food was good, Lawn Club was ... Read more

We started by meeting friends in Brussels and then taking the Thalys train to Amsterdam. One mistake we made was that we thought the ship would be closer to the rear entrance of the train station, but it was quite a hike, in the rain no ... Read more

We arrived in Amsterdam in the early morning of the day before our cruise left. I wish I had planned 2-3 days before the cruise so we could have gone to Bruges. Make sure when in Amsterdam you book your tickets online for the Van Gogh ... Read more

Long 2-1/2 hour line at embarkation in Amsterdam. Celebrity told us the fault was British customs---they had sent only 2 customs officers from Britain, which seemed to be true. I have neuropathy and should have pre-ordered a wheelchair for ... Read more

The Silhouette is a gorgeous ship. Well appointed, nicely laid out. Lots of natural hues - very soothing. It IS a luxury experience, even with 2900 passengers on board. I am a Celebrity devotee. They always treat me very well, and I ... Read more
