After over twenty cruises with Celebrity, I know what to expect: Great food, excellent service and a spotlessly clean ship. The Silhouette is all that and more. The ports of call were less the attraction than the ship itself. She had just arrived back from Europe, so there was about an hour delay in embarkation. Being Elite Plus help me in getting on the ship quickly.
Upon boarding I enjoyed the usual glass of sparkling wine and proceeded to the buffet where I met my friends that I was traveling with. Ther first night we dined in the Tuscan Grill which is excellent and offered a great view of our sail away.
My cabin was a large outside, forward on Deck 8 and my friends had booked a balcony cabin hearby on the same floor. Cabin service was outstanding, as usual, and the food and service in the Main Dining Room was as good as ever. Anyone who says that Celebrity has slipped must be seeing something that I have not. The fellow guests were polite, good company and well behaved, including the children.
The new Captains Club program is outstanding, in my opinion, with a complimentary happy hour for Elite guests every evening. The CC Hostess, Donna, was very attentive and professional. Our Ports of Call were the standard Western Caribbean; Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Falmouth Jamaica and Labadee, RCCL's Private 'Island'. Our day at Labadee was perfect and the highlight of our cruise. I would not hestitate to recommend the Silhouette to anyone seeking a Premium Cruise experience.
