OK cruise considering a few 'issues' along the way

My wife and I are fans of Celebrity, they just know what they're doing when it comes to cruising, service etc, usually that is! This cruise we felt Celebrity may have bitten off more than they could chew - so many kids set the crew up for a difficult set of circumstances. I'm sure the security guys were glad to see the back of (some) of the kids. That along with some bumpy weather, this ...

Expectations dashed - but still a very nice ship.

The itinerary was what prompted me to take this cruise, the ship was luxurious and the staff very professional. The average rating comes from the main dining room food, small portions, and average quality. Some excursion staff is sadly lacking in experience knowledge and organization! Missing excursion tickets, after several attempts and frustrating times dealing with the excursion ...

Are Celebrity Cutting Corners to Pay for Their New Ships?

We have taken more than 20 Celebrity Cuises and chose this itinerary as it sailed from and returned to Southampton for a no fly Cruise as my wife has walking difficulties and did not wish to fly. We had an Accessible Suite which was ok but looking dated in decor but was otherwise finebut the wet room shower leaked water all around the bathroom which we avoided by placing towels s a water ...

A potentially great cruise, spoilt by poor dining experience

Having sailed on several Celebrity ships, this was previously my favourite cruise line. We chose to sail on the Silhouette this time, as we are totally fed up with the hassle at airports, so wanted a no-fly cruise, and the Silhouette is now the only Celebrity ship that sails from Southampton. However, after our experience on this ship, we definitely won't be choosing Celebrity for future cruises ...

what is the point of paying extra for getting less, the menu in BLUE restaurant was smaller than in the CUVEE restaurant which meant that the choice was very limited indeed .we were also annoyedt that after the quiz in the afternoon in the mast bar we were asked to vacate the area as it was going to be cleaned ,when in fact it was going to be used for a private do, please treat us like adults not ...

GOOD POINTS Food Service Shows Rooms Silent disco Average age for cruise was 65 yo ! NEED TO IMPROVE: EXPENSIVE drinks when not on package. Package encourages an unhealthy amount of drinking and too expensive for most people. Should be able to have a few drinks at a price equivalent to a nice bar price and $US11 for a reasonable glass of red wine is far too ...

Not as good at the Eclipse

We went to Norway for a week with the Eclipse in May and had a good time, with great service and decent food, so we decided to go again to the Azores, Madeira and the Canaries for two weeks in September. The cabin steward Ovideo, was wonderful, but the balcony cabin needs an update....bathroom a bit grotty and the carpet too. The plumbing from the cabins above were so noisy that it sounded as ...

We were very disappointed that our latest cruise on Silhouette did not come close to our expectations, especially as our travel agent had personally recommended Celebrity. Our previous cruise on their Eclipse vessel was a much more enjoyable event. I had recently suffered the loss of my mother, close to our holiday date, and was in need of a refreshing break to assist the grieving process. The ...

Sailing from Southampton. Good selection of ports. Celebrity have been every good on previous cruises. Object to paying for shuttle buses and boat shuttles. Corsica was originally scheduled with no shuttle boat. Four of us went together having 2 adjacent rooms with balconies. Unfortunately all of us were very sick at some point during the cruise.Most unusual as 3 of us are very fit with only 1 ...

This was our first cruise and had been looking forward to it for such a long time. Overall we enjoyed it and ensured we had a good time. However, our experience was marred by poor service on a number of occasions along with indiscretions from two employees who were managers. Whilst the good old British class system is still alive and kicking, you don't expect it from the crew !!! The ...
