Celebrity Silhouette Family
While Celebrity isn't in the same league as Royal Caribbean, Carnival or Disney when it comes to kids' programming, the line generally does a decent job of catering to families, who cruise in much larger numbers during summer holidays.

Deck 15 forward is the epicenter for Silhouette's kids' programming. Two dedicated kids' areas, X-Club (ages 13 to 17) and Fun Factory (ages 3 to 12), are each outfitted with age-appropriate gear (toys for the youngest tots, video games as they get older). The teen space also features a soft drink "bar" with a popcorn machine. The ship's video arcade is located nearby.

The youth program includes organized activities for four age groups, as follows:

Shipmates (ages 3 to 5) and Cadets (ages 6 to 8) participate in activities like cartoon trivia, face-painting and scavenger hunts. Ensigns (9 to 12) may enjoy pool games, talent shows, Wii and basketball. Those in the 13 to 17 sector participate in activities like pool Olympics, karaoke, an evening "dinner party" or hours of uninterrupted videogaming. During summer season sailings or cruises that have a large number of youngsters, teens may be divided into 12 to 14's and 15 to 17's. For-fee baby-sitting is available on a group basis ($6 per hour, per child, for an "afternoon party" on port days or late-night "slumber party") or individual ($19 per hour for up to three kids).
