Fix Cape Liberty
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The Silouette is lovely. I took this cruise to experience an "S-Class" ship and was not disappointed. However, I still prefer the Constellation or the little, now-departed Mercury. Will be happy to sail again on an "S-Class" ship but the port and itinerary will More dictate future cruise selections.
We experienced some high seas; I thought the ship rode well (mid ship, deck 7); others disagreed.
Same issues as expressed previously: lack of storage drawers in non-suite cabins; cabinetry over bed too high for many passengers, need for additional elevators.
The bathroom was well done. Balcony chaise lounge chairs were comfortable and were the hammocks and wicker Lawn chairs; rented cabanas were generally empty. Liked the many areas for quiet time. Furnishings throughout the ship were nice except the chairs in the main dining room: too heavy, too deep and too wide.
The Cruise Critic group did a cabin crawl which was great because we viewed several categories. All cabins except suites and accessible cabins are laid out the same. Concierge and Aqua Class had upgraded shower plumbing. The accessible cabins were impressive and indicated that much thought was put into the design.
Did not explore the specialty restaurants as I feel food should be outstanding regarding of venue when cruising a premium line. Food was good in the main dining room but no real WOW factor as in years past.
Officers and staff were wonderful as is the Celebrity hallmark. Entertainment was as to be expected. The holiday decorations in the atrium were beautiful.
Ports of calls were good: six ships in St. Maarten but it didn't feel crowded. Less
Cabin review: 2A7189 Deluxe Veranda 2A
Great balcony chairs; day bed was like a rock; over-the-bed cabinets were too high; not enough storage drawers; closet access was difficult because the day bed was only 16" away; nice bathroom; ugly night stands and table; didn't match the other millwork; cabin entrance is recessed and doors open out; hit my neighbor in the back on the first day; elevators are too far apart; need another bank of them.Read All Deluxe Veranda 2A (2A) Reviews >>
