Our first cruise was on the Celebrity Reflection and I loved every second of that so I had high expectations going into this cruise. I was not disappointed. The Silhouette is well maintained and clean. It is identical for the most part to ... Read more

Celebrity Reflection is a beautiful ship with excellent staff, food, and services. I wanted to comment on the Christmas Cruise we took from Dec. 20 to Dec. 27, 2014. Our Port visits all went well with a short, but pleasant stop in San Juan ... Read more

Having just returned from spending Christmas and New Year onboard Celebrity Millenium I have to say this is the worse cruise ship I have ever been on. Having sailed with several other companies I was persuaded by family and friends to try ... Read more

I was a cruise virgin until I spent 14 nights on the Solstice sailing from Sydney to Auckland and loved it! As a Brit, I loved the British entertainment crew - they made it for me. Seeing Santa in the Solstice theatre on Christmas ... Read more

We cruise so often it was difficult to find destinations we had not visited. The entire experience was better than previous Celebrity cruises because the ports of call did not have the usual lines since it was in the Caribbean. We left ... Read more

This cruise was sold as the "ultimate" and the ship was rated with 5 stars ! This cruise was just the worst I ever experienced. Apart from 4 constant shopping channels on the TV with a cruise director who should be fired at all, this ... Read more

Hello, This was our 1st cruise with Celebrity. Overall we thought it was very nice. We opted to only eat in the main dining room. The specialty restaurants were expensive, considering we already paid for all meals. Food and presentation ... Read more

This was our 16th cruise and 2nd Celebrity cruise. After trying 8 different cruise lines we have decided that Celebrity suits us best. We stayed at the Hampton Inn, Plantation FL through stay123. Front desk personnel were very friendly ... Read more

We did back to back weeks during Christmas/New Year's 2014-2015 in the Caribbean out of San Juan. We had been on the Summit before. Somehow, the ship's infrastructure has declined considerably. The plumbing was malfunctioning continually, ... Read more

This was our second sailing with Celebrity. We had never cruised over Christmas and thought it might be a new fun way to celebrate the holidays- stress free. We did enjoy our week but if you are thinking of sailing the high seas over a ... Read more

We sailed aboard the Celebrity Silhouette December 21-28, 2014, and had a great time. The embarkation process was surprisingly easy. We received a voicemail several days before, letting us know when the best time would be for us to ... Read more

We have cruised other cruise lines but heard that Celebrity was top notch. We booked Concierge Class on this ship and were assured a butler and preferential treatment.( It was our 20th anniversary). From the moment we boarded it went down ... Read more

The restaurant seating "TEAM" needs to take their work a little more serious. You don't seat two English speaking people at a table with six Chinese speaking people. And if the "TEAM" was too busy overlooking names (Italian vs. Chinese), ... Read more

What a disappointment! I booked with Celebrity due to its reputation as a high-quality, excellent line. My experience, however, was merely average and therefore disappointing. I have sailed twice in the past - the first with NCL Gem and ... Read more

Let me start by saying that we have about 15 previous Celebrity cruises under our belt - and 30+ in all. We started with X back in the early days of Chandris, sailing on the Meridian, Horizon, Zenith, up to the largest ships. We prefer ... Read more
