Very good experience with Celebrity. Cruise program was 2 days at sea dep F.L., for Aruba. Due to onboard accident? and illness for one passenger, ship had to return to Miami twice, before setting course south. Due to the delay, Intinerary had to be changed, so we were setting course to Curaçao. Arrived after 4 days at SEA. Top service onboard. Cayman Island intinerary cancelled. We got compensated for that. Two days before arrival F.L. we experienced that many flights from Miami/F.L. to Europe became cancelled due to the corona situation. Our flight cancelled, but outstanding service from Celebrity, rearranged our booking, so we left Miami only one hour later than originaly planned. Again, many thanks to Celebrity for excellent and effective service. We had a very nice cruise, but circumstances as mentioned, did not give us 100% of what we expected prior to the cruise. Celebrity and RCCL are still our favourites. Read Less

Our cruise left Fort Lauderdale on March 6th, 2020 and on the morning of March 7th we found ourselves at a dock in Miami apparently so we could offload the corpse of a guest who chose to rapidly ascend several decks without the benefit of an elevator and landed on a lifeboat. That should have been a tip-off that this wasn't going to be the vacation of a lifetime. OK, so we leave Miami after the body is removed from the ship and head towards the A-B-C islands when it becomes apparent that something else is wrong because we turned around then turned again and slowed way down for several hours. The captain made an announcement about having to return back to Miami (again) for a "medical emergency" (mind immediately thinks Coronavirus and the captain's announcement without any details wasn't at all reassuring that it wasn't virus related). He could have easily said it wasn't virus related and put everyone's minds at ease but didn't. Morning of the 8th we are back at the same dock in Miami when a seemingly fine looking couple disembark the ship, pause to take selfies on the dock and then get into a yellow cab and drive off. Certainly didn't appear to be a life and death emergency that would require a ship with nearly 3000 passengers plus crew to turn around and waste another day at sea. The only relief was that there was apparently not a virus issue otherwise we would assume they would not have allowed them to leave without masks, gloves, and other protective gear or get into a yellow cab. We were once again off towards the A-B-C islands where we were told we would arrive at Curacao on the afternoon of Tuesday 3/10. Due to high winds and rough seas we were late getting to the first port and arrived at 6PM, just after shops had closed. Next two days we had pleasant enough port calls in Bonaire and Aruba but because of the two returns to Miami our stop at Grand Cayman was canceled and we were to spend the next two days at sea in order to return to FLL on the morning of 15th. As the days progressed the news from home was getting worse and worse and while my wife and I had booked two more consecutive cruises on the ship the experience thusfar had us second thinking the wisdom of this so on the morning of March 12th I went to guest services and asked what my options were. I was told I could cancel the next two cruises and receive a future cruise credit (FCC) but I had to do so by the end of that day or I would receive no credit and no refund. I noted that the virus issues were getting very bad back home and that our president had declared a national emergency and that at least two cruise lines had already announced they were canceling future cruises and offering their guests refunds asked if I could instead get a refund and I was told that celebrity would not be cancelling the next cruise and my only choice would be to either go on the cruise, cancel that day and accept a FCC or risk losing all our money if we later decided not to go. We reluctantly decided to cancel and rushed to book air travel home on Sunday (at full fare). Less than 24 hours later I received a text saying Celebrity is suspending all cruises and because they cancelled any guests booked would receive either 125% of their fare as FCC or a refund of 100% as well as return airfare for anyone left at the port due to the cancellation. I was then told that because we canceled the day before (under the duress of being told we had to) that we were not eligible for this offer. I feel we were misled (either intentionally or unintentionally) and pressured into canceling because Celebrity knew if we cancelled they would get out from having to refund our money and pay our airfare home. Now I really don't want to ever cruise on Celebrity again. We're 4 star mariners on Holland America and if we decide to ever cruise again it will be on HAL. One last important thing. Celebrity still has passengers handle all of the food/service utensils at the buffet which is very unsanitary. In this age of virus, there is no excuse for this other than cutting corners on crew by not wanting to pay people to serve the food. HAL has crew members handle all of the food and serving utensils at the buffet and it is a much safer system. For this reason alone I would not return to Celebrity. My wife and I are now voluntarily self-isolating at home hoping we don't develop any illness from either the cruise (and its unsanitary food service) or the flight back. We may never go on another cruise again because of how this was handled by Celebrity. Read Less

We chose this Celebrity cruise based on prior experience sailing on Reflection, which was extremely good. However, we were disappointed with the Silhouette. The ship itself is nice, and while there are many good staff, we were surprised by the number of staff that were dismissive and rude. The food was average at best. Service and standards were definitely not up to par with what we experienced on the Reflection. The childrens play area for 3 and under had minimal operating hours. We returned to the port of miami twice, each time sailing over 10 hours back to the port for medical emergencies. Due to this we did receive a large onboard credit and a promised 25 percent cruise fare refund (although it has yet to post to anyone's bank account) which was much appreciated. Spa experience was very good, despite front desk staff actually scolding us for booking a promotion, stating they had no availability for the facial portion, as if it were our responsibility to manage their schedule. We were actually ignored more than once at various bars when attempting to place drink orders ( bars were not busy at the time) and staff at buffet was often dismissive. Future cruise office staff was beyond rude, which cemented our decision not to book a future cruise at this time, and definitely not on the Silhouette. Read Less
