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

Trip through the Panama Canal to cross off bucket list item. Embarkation ran a little long but we had received an email from Celebrity warning of this due to just coming from South America so it was not unexpected. Upon boarding they were ... 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

Wife and I are in our early-mid 50's, but pretty hip so not into an "old people" cruise at all. We had sailed on Celeb Summit last year (first cruise) and had a REALLY great experience so decided to give it another whirl this ... Read more

Sailed April 2017
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

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary as it covered many interesting destinations with the opportunity to get off in Beijing for 2 nights to be able to tour independently. The ship was an older ship but was very nice and the ... Read more

Had wanted to sail on Celebrity for some time and they did not disappoint. Had huge issues with Delta getting down to Miami in the morning but we still arrived at the Cruise terminal by 11:00AM. Check-in was the smoothest I have ever ... Read more

We had a great trip with almost perfect weather. The crowd was younger than expected which was nice. Upgraded to the premium liquor package which I thought was well worth it. Had some really good drinks at the World Class Bar. Thought ... Read more

Just back from our 7 day western Caribbean cruise on the Silhouette. Since I was reading these reviews for months before our cruise, I thought I would pass on some things to educate others. The ship is very nice, cabins are adequate. ... Read more

We always gravitate to celebrity if possible. The ship is clean and upscale, the food has improved over previous years. We found the staff to be friendly and accommodating in all venues of the ship. Our cabin was a standard balcony on ... Read more

My brother is having a "significant" birthday this year, and last year asked us to help him plan a cruise to celebrate (he's never been on a cruise, while we've been on several). Not only did I say we'd help plan it, but we'd go ... Read more
