We recently sailed on the silhouette for the 3rd time. This time in an obstructed view cabin on 6th floor. We would never choose this location again as we felt it was very noisy. That being said, it did not impact our having a wonderful vacation.
We love this ship. We felt the food was very good. (it does not compare to cruising 10 + years ago -- so we don't compare) ...it is very good and we enjoyed everything we had. We went to Tuscan on day 1. the remainder of the cruise we went to MDR late seating and listened to our waiters recommendations -- he was usually spot on. Late seating was too late for us and we would probably opt for early next time ... the past 2 times we did select and BLU ... so we tried this and found we were just too tired.
Loved our day at labadee and would have loved 2 days there and NO days in Jamaica --- just personal preference.
we had the classic bev package and enjoyed that.
Staff were friendly with the exception of 1 waiter at the martini bar.
We never found the pool area crowded and always found seating. no signs of chair holding on our cruise.
We found the lounges were very empty some nights with the exception of the martini bar which was always crowded.
we did not do the porch or bistro on this trip... we enjoyed the lunch buffet and noshing at Bacio.
We would sail this ship and celebrity again in a heartbeat.
