Celebrity Silhouette cabins come in 7 main categories, ranging from cozy singles to 1,291-square-foot Penthouse Suites. Solstice-class cabins are around 15 percent larger than the rest of the Celebrity fleet, with correspondingly larger balconies. A huge percentage of cabins have balconies and/or ocean views.
Standard singles, insides, balconies and ocean views feature gently undulating light-brown walls; two twin beds that can be made into a queen and two bedside tables. Note the beds are high, with plenty of space for suitcase storage (the life vests are also under the beds); expect hotel-style white bedding with red and cream trim; a desk and chair; a safe; a mini-bar, and framed pieces of modern art for some color.
Most cabins also include a sofa bed. Wardrobes are filled with wooden hangers, but oddly have no drawers inside -- for those, check the desk. You'll also find two deep cubbies above the bed. Flat-screen TVs include a range of channels, from news, sports and cruise line advertising. Each cabin has a hair dryer -- but you may want to bring your own if you require something with a little pep.
Shower-only bathrooms are standard across cabins. They have a modern look and feel, in wood and chrome. The shower stalls feature curved sliding doors, a footrest for shaving and a fixed showerhead. A nice touch: Cabins feature Gilchrist & Soames products, rather than a generic fixed dispenser. There are all sorts of drawers and shelves dotted around for storage.
Inside: The standard interior on Celebrity Silhouette comes in at a slightly-larger-than-industry-standard of 181 to 202 square feet. There are two twins that can be converted to a queen bed plus a sofa bed, a small coffee table, cupboard, wardrobe and a fixed desk with a chair.
There are also a handful of single inside cabins on Celebrity Silhouette, on Decks 7, 8 and 9. These staterooms come in at a snug 103 square feet but feature modern fixtures and fittings including USB ports by the fixed desk. Modern bathrooms include large basins and a glass shower door.
Ocean View: Outside cabins have the same furniture as inside cabins with the bed beside the window; they also include a large oblong-shaped picture window. The standard Ocean View cabin is a little smaller than the inside cabins at 176 square feet. Deluxe and Panoramic Ocean View staterooms offer additional space, at 242 and 212 square feet, respectively.
Veranda: At 192 square feet, Celebrity Silhouette cabins with balcony are roughly the same size as insides but come with 54 square feet of outdoor space furnished with a table and two chairs. The bed is beside the glass doors. Silhouette aft cabins in this category have stunning views at the back and so are highly prized.
Concierge Class: Celebrity Silhouette Concierge Class cabins are similar to regular balcony cabins. The couch and chairs are upholstered in leather, and the desk is topped with beige marble. Between the two spaces is a teak-topped pedestal table.
Passengers staying in Celebrity Cruises Silhouette’s Concierge Class cabins enjoy perks like welcome bubbly, fresh fruit and flowers, daily snacks, a pillow menu (upon request), and a massaging showerhead. Concierge passengers also get free access to a couple of exclusive events and priority restaurant seating.
AquaClass: AquaClass staterooms on Celebrity Silhouette (also the same size as standard balconies, with the same configuration) give passengers access to the spa’s relaxation room, the Persian Garden (spa suite) and Blu restaurant. Special perks include fluffier bathrobes and towels, as well as amenity kits, which includes foot spray, lip balm and relaxation mist.
During each cruise, Celebrity Silhouette AquaClass passengers also get fresh iced tea, canapes on a daily basis, free fitness classes, as well as an upgraded (and healthier) room service menu. As well as the aforementioned products, the bathroom shower has a five-head Hansgrohe setup. Note that Celebrity Cruises Silhouette AquaClass cabins do not have sofa beds as they are only for two passengers.
Silhouette has four categories of suites, which get a variety of perks including access to the suites-only dining room, Luminae, the Retreat Lounge and the Retreat Deck. All suite passengers also have the following perks: free Premium Wi-Fi, a butler, restaurant seating preferences, evening hors d'oeuvres, and complimentary in-suite espressos and cappuccinos, among others.
Sky Suites: The entry-level Celebrity Silhouette Sky Suites are each 300 square feet with a 79-square-foot balcony. In addition to the added space inside and out, the Sky Suites feature larger TVs, mini-fridges and shower-tub combos. These enjoyed a significant refurb in 2020, and all have new carpets, curtains, furniture, large flat screen TVs and a bedside lamp with USB ports.
Aqua Sky Suites come with the same perks as all other suites plus extras included in AquaClass, such as eco-friendly toiletries, in-room fitness accessories, and free bottled water.
Celebrity Suites: The 394-square-foot Celebrity Suites (105-square-foot balconies) add yet more space, a distinct separation between bedroom and living room, and two TVs -- one in the sleeping quarters and a second 52-inch display that's part of a surround-sound entertainment setup in the living area.
The living room area is expansive, with an L-shaped sofa, coffee table and chair, sideboard, aforementioned TV and double doors leading out to the balcony. The bathroom is the same as in a Sky Suite.
Horizon Suites: These one-bedroom suites come in at 757 square feet with a 53- to 105-square-foot balcony. Separate living areas feature a dining table and additional storage space.
Royal Suites: These are 590-square-foot suites with 153-square-foot balconies and outdoor hot tubs. They have a master bedroom with a large bathroom that has a separate shower and tub; a second half-bath; and a large living room with an L-shaped sofa, coffee table, a wet bar and a dining area that can seat six.
Penthouse Suites: Penthouse Suites have separate living and dining rooms, a baby grand piano, wet bars, a sofa bed, two 52-inch LCD TVs (with surround sound in each living room), two bedrooms with whirlpool tubs, shower stalls with dual shower heads, twin washbasins -- and even 26-inch LCD TVs. Each balcony has a second whirlpool and lounge seating.
Families should note there are several dozen connecting cabins and a number Family Ocean View Staterooms with two bedrooms each. These rooms measure 575 square feet with one master bedroom, plus a second bedroom (with a single twin bed) and sitting area with a sofa (convertible to trundle bed). They can sleep five, but have no balcony.
Celebrity Silhouette has multiple wheelchair-accessible cabins, from inside to Sky Suite. The vast majority of them have outside views; a few have balconies. All accessible staterooms have additional square footage over their non-accessible equivalents and have 32-inch-wide automatic doors. Most feature a 5-foot turning radius. Bathrooms have roll-in showers, ramped thresholds and lowered fixtures
