Itinary was very good. History and archeology interesting in Greece, Turkey and Italy. Excursions to Delos and Ephesus excellent, with superb, knowledgable guides. Crete was disappointing as no organised tours to Knossos, we hired a car, ... Read more

To start off, this cruise was amazing, the staff, the ship, the ports and a majority of the other cruisers. This was an 11 N Eastern Mediterranean cruise. Departed on October 10th, 2016. This was the last Eastern Med cruise of the season ... Read more

We are a professional couple, no kids, early forties. We had never been on a cruise before and had no experience in this area of Europe so took the advice of friends who had done this exact cruise before and booked in March 2016. We dove ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and for the cruise line. Istanbul was removed early on, which saddened me, but I understood and agreed with the decision. Pros - The Celebrity Line, with loyalty benefits and pick your perk. ... Read more

The overall impression we were left with during and following this cruise with Celebrity X was one of total dissatisfaction and based on this experience we will be exploring other cruise lines in respect of our future cruise choices. We ... Read more

This is our fourth cruise on Celebrity. The other three were Caribbean, one on the Solstice and two on the Summit. I've always told people that my husband likes cruising more than I do. After this cruise, I am hooked. No renting ... Read more

The ship is still in great shape. Our Sky Suite was larger than the Executive Room we stayed in the night before the cruise at the Rome Airport Hilton. Our Butler, Bart, and room attendant, Leonardo, were ever present and did a great ... Read more

We were attracted by the itinerary and were not disappointed (except for Ibiza.). This is our second cruise with Celebrity on a Solstice class ship and it was nice that we were already familiar with the lay out once on board. We had no ... Read more

My wife and I took this cruise as the second leg of a back-to-back cruise (the first leg was the Mediterranean and Israel). None of the destinations were duplicated from the previous cruise apart from Civitavecchia, the port of ... Read more

We wanted a cruise which gave us a variety of ports to visit. However, the planning of the ports in terms of scheduling was very poor. We should not have not visited Cadiz at 1 pm on a Sunday afternoon, There was nothing to do as ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and because we like the Solstice class of ships. All in all we enjoyed this cruise but for the first time had some problems. We had booked directly through Celebrity for the first time and ... Read more

Just returned from our Western Mediterranean Cruise. Once again, Celebrity proved to be a cruise line in tune with their clientele. The ports of call were great and the selection of shore excursions were good. The crew, as always, was ... Read more

We arrived a few days early in Rome. Although we had been there two years ago, one never has enough time to explore Rome!!! This was our six cruise with Celebrity, but the first on Silhouette and I think this one has a little piece of my ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on Celebrity, and we are still fans of the line, particularly the Silhouette. The cruise was a new routing round the Med, including ports either not visited by us, or last seen many years ago. The October weather ... Read more

My second time on the Silhouette and it was even better than the first. The Mediterranean ports of call were a great mix. The ship is in tip-top shape, our cabin was so comfortable and always quickly serviced. Every need was taken care ... Read more

First cruise in Europe and only our second cruise (we cruised Celebrity Century in July 14). In a word amazing...we just loved every minute and it all went too quickly. Food in general was plentiful, fresh and tasty. We were in a ... Read more

We have cruised on Equinox twice before and have done this cruise once before. For us Celebrity was always top for us before NCL, RCI MSC and others. Unfortunately they appear to have taken a commercial decision to plunge down market. ... Read more

What a smooth process for embarkation - we were booked in a Celebrity Suite and found ourselves guided to Michael's Club by a staff person from Guest Relations. There we met our Captain's Club Hostess Maila who personally walked us to our ... Read more

This was our first Cruise. Our flight to Barcelona was fine. But didn't really give you time to visit the City. At Embarkation there were large crowds, seemed to take ages, but once the desks opened it got moving. Disembarkation ... Read more

We had done this itinerary 4 years ago and enjoyed it so much we wanted to do it again. Ports: Being the second visit to the ports allowed us to be a bit more selective of what to see/do. For the majority of the ports we explored on ... Read more
