Ship Facts: Celebrity Silhouette Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Silhouette Deck Plans
Spanking new but disappointing
Pleased in general with my first cruise on Celebrity. The Silhouette is magnificent and very modern including its artwork. My preference and that is personal is Cunard or Royal Caribbean which are equally deluxe but both are slightly more luxurious and that includes some wonderful contemporary as well as traditional art.

What is disappointing is the lack of interest in the shopping promenade..nothing to compare to the magnificent promenade on the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas which has restaurants and bars along the promenade as well as shops giving it far more life. Also disappointing was the main dining room..nothing to compare to the RCL Liberty of the Seas and as well the lack of small eateries offering free food in a pub atmosphere.

The room however was the largest I have had for a similar room on other ships and the bed extremely comfortable..the bathroom largest as well with plenty of cupboard space. All luggage easily fit under the bed.

Quality of food in specialty restaurants was outstanding but why not given the extra cost. Quality otherwise in the free main restaurant and grill was simply mediocre unfortunately and service terrible in the main restaurant...perhaps to be fair because it was a new ship and new crew.

Of the 9 ports visited, Barcelona gets first place but closely followed by Ibiza whose village streets are a paradise of shopping and Adjacio, Corsica
