Fantastic value for a luxury family holiday

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)

We booked a family cruise, including retired parents, brother and sister and their teenage sons to the Eastern Mediterranean.

Flew from Heathrow to Rome for embarkation at Civitavecchia, which was quite un-organised and with ittle assistance for elderly parents.

Once aboard, we found the Silhouette spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room in the deck 7 balcony staterooms.

The dining experience was very good, particularly the Grand Curvee double height dining room for formal dinner and the Lawn Club Grill for DIY BBQ's.

Favourite activities were the dance & art classes, gym and lectures.

The service was friendly and usually prompt, but lacked the attention to detail found on the Cunard line, e.g offering an alternative rather than just "no" if something is not available or possible.

The entertainment was very good, from the individual musicians (zylo-synth, violin, A Cappela vocals to the orchestra, jazz band, circus More perfromers, show dancers and singers.

Our port excursions to Santorini, Athens, Haifa and Naples were efficient and well managed, the one to Jerusalem less so.

By contracts to embarkation, the process of disembarkation was smooth and efficient.

In summary a very good experience, excellent value for money. Less
