Ship Facts: Celebrity Silhouette Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Silhouette Deck Plans
Celebrity Venice to Rome June to July 2013
We cruised with a total of 8 family members; aged 12 to 67. Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, although things have changed quite a bit since our last cruise on this class of ship. The food in the specialty restaurants was excellent. The children thoroughly enjoyed helping cook the meal at the Lawn Club Grill, as well as the hot chocolate chip cookie dessert. One family rented a cabana for the entire cruise, and we all enjoyed hanging out there, to read as well as enjoy the scenery. There did seem to be less activities scheduled for families to enjoy: only one day of bingo, no scrapbooking classes, only one cooking and food carving demonstration, etc. We did take full advantage of the ping pong table that was placed indoors in the Quasar Club...we only wish that the lighting was better and that the table was located in a permanent spot indoors, rather than being put away every day around 3 or 4 pm. Wished for a tour of the bridge, as well as much smaller groups for touring the galley. The shopping was very limited on ship, unless you are interested in very upscale jewelry or clothing. Wished for more sundries, and souvenirs from each port, for those who did not have enough time to shop on their excursions. Thoroughly enjoyed the crepe restaurant, as well as the Molecular Bar.... very entertaining.

The ship's excursions were very well organized. Tours left very promptly. Only problem as usual was in ports where we had to tender. Lines backed up, but moved quickly.

Wish they had chosen to add a couple of more sea days to this trip. Several ports seemed to have very limited historical or scenic interest.

We mixed our own tours along with ship's excursions, which offered the best choice for this itinerary.
