Celebrity Silhouette in the Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas

Sail Date: June 2013
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice

This six-country cruise is for those who like to be in port most every day. It is packed with ports, and that means a few of the ports were less than spectacular and probably could have been easily skipped.

As for the Celebrity Silhouette, there are pluses and minuses:

PLUSES:

We have never seen a friendly crew. They could not have been better!

Our balcony room was slightly larger than on past cruises.

The Silhouette is a classy ship--not too flashy.

The variety of food in the Oceanview Cafe (the "lido deck") was outstanding, and the quality was very good.

The desserts were very good in the Grand Curvee, the main dining room.

MINUSES:

The casino is small and games were a bit dated.

The shows varied greatly in quality.

In the main dining room, the Grand Curvee, the entrees varied. You might get a perfect steak one night and a tough one the next.

The photo operation needs More updating. Newer ships let you view your photos on a computer screen--not on a wall.

In the case of several of ports, the ship had to dock several miles from town in an industrial area. So,Celebrity provides shuttle buses and charges $8-$14 per person. Your options are (1) sign up for an excursion, (2) pay for a shuttle bus, or (3) stay aboard the ship all day. Less
