Celebrity deilvered a really good time for us ahead of what we learned would be a hiatus for the beautiful Silhouette. My review may obviously cover a ship configuration that will have been significantly revamped. For instance, my favorite room, the Wine Cellar, apparently will be eliminated. Embarking and disembarking both went very efficiently. The public rooms on the Silhouette were really appealing. The atrium, the lounges and the theater were comfortable and attractive. Our standard verandah cabin was above average in terms of space and appearance, although storage space was a litttle lacking. Our cabin steward Oscar was outstanding - always on it! Breakfast & lunch at the Oceanview Cafe buffet was surprisingly manageable. Because of the use of various isoalted islands, lines were minimal and the experience less harried. The food was consistently good, though pretty much the same each day. Dinner in MDR also offered consistently good meals that met, while rarely exceeded, expectations. Our biggest frustration for the week was the experience of Select Dining. The flexibility of choosing the hour of your dinner comes at a price: lines and long waits even if you have a reservation. The waits are longer without a reservation -- you are given a pager (a la Applebees?!) in those instances. We should have opted for the unreasonably late 8:30 main option since 7:45 - 8:00 usually resulted in 8:30 dinner anyway. The MDR crew worked hard for us and perhaps the staff assignment between fixed and flexible sections was not properly considered. Entertainment did exceed expectations! That was surely the case in the main showroom 7 of the 9 nights. There was a Jersey Boys knockoff, a Jerry Lee Lewis tribute, an amazing electric violinst, a fantastic comic magician, and production shows that featured aerial acrobatics. Sue, the Cruise Director and host, was just phenomenal and very, very present. The smaller, daily music acts were also solid, particularly Brazilian folk singer Shanty...although I wish she had not been set up in the noisy Ensemble Lounge. We had a great time on this cruise. But it appears Celebrity is settling into an awkward demographic with its passenger population. Where Holland America used to be the line for the senior citizen set, we saw a far greater number of those elderly cruisers on this vacation. HAL, with its Music Boulevard and culinary positioning, seems to be attracting the more discriminating Boomers and younger generation. At the same time, Celebrity has opted to present LOUD poolside activities that had the majority of the cruisers scambling to find another place to relax. Never has it been this easy to find a lounge near the pool on sea days! The itinerary of the ABC islands was a terrific trip and we surely came home feeling good about our 9 days on the Silhouette.

Previous cruise on Summit was wonderful and expected same on the Silhouette however it was not. Food in the buffet was less than mediocre. Tasteless and often was not cooked throughout. Food in the main dining rooms was not much better. Only the lobster meal was good. Other meals were not. Also, service was rushed and the young lady handling the table assignments was overwhelmed. Too often I notice diners complaining. The theatre shows were also mediocre. With the exception of one show that featured a Jerry Lee Lewis impersonation I noticed numerous people walking out of the theatre long before shows were finished. Of note, there was a group of 5 Jamaican singers who played in various lounges that were outstanding. Biggest complaint was the watered down drinks. Celebrity should be ashamed of themselves for the horrible mixed drinks. Numerous people complained. Mixed drinks often were little more than flavored ice water. Basically made the drink package worthless. Was a big Celebrity fan but will probably try a different cruise line next time. Read Less

We are Celebrity fans and have been going on the Summit (Millennium Class ship) on a regular basis, maybe as many as three or four times. We booked this cruise, which went to the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçau), and also Grand Cayman, on board the on last Summit cruise. We were afraid the larger Solstice Class ship might overwhelm us. This turned out not to be the case. The ship only seemed crowded during embarkation and disembarkation, otherwise, except for the elevators, it seemed not crowded. We were in a Royal Suite, so we were pampered and spoiled, with all of the drinks, as well as specialty restaurants, included. A hidden treasure on this ship is The Porch, a dining experience by the lawn club that is ultimately relaxing. I had some of the best shrimp ever on one of the luncheons there. The wine selection was excellent. The elevators: On the main atrium elevator shaft, each side has four. Except on our side one elevator was broken for the entire cruise, and not available. This created long wait times, and crowded elevators once one arrived. Please, Celebrity, make sure all the elevators are fixed and working for our next cruise with you! Also, on embarkation, though we were guided through security (being suite guests), we later, in the boarding process, felt abandoned and had to wait in too many lines. Read Less
