Embarkation was not too bad, other than being led into the wrong line at Check-In. Should've been in the priority embarkation line, but was told to go to a different line, which took about 70 minutes. The ship itself is as beautiful as ... Read more

The ship showed some rust in spots on the outside but was beautiful on the inside. We selected this cruise because it was supposed to be a mature crowd but most of the passengers were elderly. To many electric scooters. In fact someone in ... Read more

Out of the 8 cruises we've taken from Florida over the last few years (Carnival, Royal Caribbean & NCL) Celebrity Silhouette was the best all around. Easy check in, not overcrowded, good food, good entertainment & best all around ... Read more

We decided to try this cruiseline based on previous comments as we had always taken Holland America, thus our comparison. The very first thing I noticed is that none of the staff treated you as though you were important. It was as though ... Read more

Celebrity is my cruise line because of the perks I get from Captains Club elite level. We have been on Celebrity 14 times over the years. The food quality which used to be fantastic is just not as good. Sirloin steak on menu is poor. Drink ... Read more

I chose to sail with Celebrity cruises, for our first carribean cruise, for two main reasons: 1. Celebrity has a good reputation, and 2. I have enjoyed sailing with Celebrity in the past. However, on our first Caribbean cruise, ... Read more

Great price including onboard credit and drinks packages. Didn't need to spend any extra at all for the seven days. School and uni holidays so timing good for our families. Lots of kids onboard but no worries as they were all occupied with ... Read more

Our party of 4 were expecting a lot from this ship. Travel agents advertised it as 5 star but we were all of the opinion this was not the case. Embarkation took 2 hours, with both the cruise line and international terminal both blaiming ... Read more

I took my daughter on this cruise to celebrate her upcoming marriage and my birthday. The average person on the cruise was retired and seemed to want a more staid environment. There were few children on board. We stayed in Aqua Class ... Read more

Celebrity was our first choice - we had never been to the Southern Caribbean. We had been to St Maarten, St Thomas, but the others were new to us. This is why we chose this ship. I do not like it as much as The Siloutte or Reflection - ... Read more

We are very happy with the attention we received in the dining room, buffet, our room steward and the concierge service they offer to some guests. The pool service has been better on previous cruises with Celebrity. My guess is that they ... Read more

We wanted to try Celebrity, as we had heard a lot of great things about this line and about Reflection in particular. While we came away impressed with both, I do not think this line or ship is better than some that we have sailed on ... Read more
