Ship Facts: Celebrity Silhouette Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Silhouette Deck Plans
Crossing the Pond with Celebrity Silhouette
My wife and I have been crossing the Atlantic by ship since the early 1960's. This is our fourth Celebrity crossing and it just keeps getting better. The Millenium in 2000 was fine, especially the Olympic Restaurant and the enrichment program, but food was only fair in Dining Room. The Constellation in 2008 was a big improvement and the Solstice last year even better. But this year, there are very few negatives. The food in Grand(sp)Cuvee Dining Room was almost always superb. Certainly the equal of Azamara and Oceania recent trips. And the alternative restaurants also amazing. Qzine was a bit over the top and would have been more appreciated on not the first night. Best lamb dish ever there. And we ate at Murano twice..since we were a party of ten and were given the private wine room. Absolutely the best dining venue on any ship ever. And the Tuscan Grill also worthwhile.

Until recently our winter crossings have been with Cunard and they are really in a class by themselves. But Celebrity does so much right that it is hard to justify paying at least twice as much for half the time on Queen Mary 2, still my wife's favorite ship.

And to comment on the ports, Genoa was a real treat. I had been advised to take the train for 20 minutes to the town of Nervi. There our group spent the day on one of the most beautiful cliff walks ever...a real treat, with a couple of restaurants and gelato and coffee places along the way. Truly a heavenly day.

The service on board was very friendly and competent...with crew members saying hello at every turn, much like Azamara. And the captain was one of our all time favorites.

One friend traveling with us, and this her first crossing since the SS France in 1965, said she would do it again in a heartbeat.
