Having spent a day in Rome prior to boarding, we were really looking forward to joining the ship which had been highly recommended. Checking in and boarding went really smoothly we were on board within an hour of arriving at the port. The problem then was we had to wait two hours until our stateroom was ready. This gave us time to enjoy an excellent buffet lunch. he buffet is amazing ! everything is well spaced out so we could saunter from one station to another without having ti elbow our way to the food.
We had a C1 balcony state room beautifully appointed and compared with other ships we found the bathroom and shower just that little bit bigger.
Our cabin steward, in fact all the crew, were extremely efficient friendly and helpful. great entertainment
great shows , missed the music in Michaels bar as we are not beer drinkers.
Our only criticism is the main dining in the Lido restaurant. Overall the presentation of the food was very good but generally bland and not very tasty. my wife is vegetarian , and although there were options on the menu, the entrees were awful. one evening she was presented with a slice of quiche on a plate and absolutely nothing else.
Our complaint was sympathetically dealt with but really not good enough for a 5star ship.
The speciality restaurants were excellent if a bit pricey,
Silhouette is magnificent ship and overall we had a wonderful cruise and we would certainly sail with Celebrity again,on this ship with same Executive chef, not so sure!
