Overall Member Rating
Amazing itinerary, lovely ship!!
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
We aso have sailed the silhouette transatlantic last fall. the food in mdr is not as good on the solstice as we found on the silhouette. That was outstanding, this was good. Celebrity still has the best mdr food on the mainstream cruise lines. The speciality restaurants were all good. Silk Harvest More was excellent! we missed the lawn club and porch from the updated silhouette. Much better use of space on the newer ships.
This was all about the port stops and celebrity did a great job of managing that process. We book with the cruise line and feel safer when aboard. the bus we were on while on the Amalfi coast broke down,. Within an hour we had a new bus and were off and never missed a beat.
This is a very port focused trip. The first sea day was after after 4 days in different major ports. The ship activities seem very minimal. No art auction, no champagne tastings... We don't care but if you're looking for a active ship, this is not it. Quiet bars, quiet spaces, lovely if that's the expectation. The disembarkation was smooth! Celebrity did a great job and the port of Barcelona is so easy! They even have the luggage come out just like at an airport! No digging in a warehouse! 20 minutes to the airport. Very easy. Less
