Overview We have sailed with Celebrity some 25 times during the last 12 years and have enjoyed the experience each time. This cruise was no exception. The crew does its best to provide quality service and routine maintenance was under way around the clock. While on board we booked a balcony cabin on the exciting new ship “Edge” for a similar February, 2019 Caribbean cruise. To our surprise, “Edge” is already fully booked for several cruises in January, apart from Inside Staterooms, so book now if you want to check out " Edge" in 2019. Embarkation We arrived at the terminal at 11.45 and were horrified to find, for the first time ever, a queue formed outside the terminal building that continued inside. It took us 20 minutes to get to the part that split off the Elite and other passenger groups. As usual, the staff members who processed our tickets and passports were delightful. The Ship Our Deck 8 cabin was placed way forward and it was quite a hike to the nearest elevators/stairs, and to reach the restaurants we had to cross the entire ship. However it was convenient for the Theater and Sky Lounge. Silhouette is a sister ship of Eclipse and Equinox and well designed for getting about. Public areas and our cabin were clean and well maintained. Our Stateroom Attendant Lancy took excellent care of us. Liliana, the main restaurant hostess, juggled Select Dining guests' seating masterfully. She remembered us from a recent cruise on Summit. Waiter Miguel from Mexico, ably assisted by Vasco and Sommelier Natalia, made dining an enjoyable event. Liliana reserved a table for us at the same waiter station every night. The system is that you can reserve one night at a time. The Deck 14 Elite Members’ 5- 7 p.m. “Happy Hour” in the Sky Lounge is a great perk. Outstanding service in the Lounge from Yevhen (Ukraine) and Rajesh (India) added to the enjoyment. The Captain, thankfully, didn’t feel he was expected to be witty and his announcements were straight forward. I missed the detailed route map that used to be on a Deck 3 easel, which showed exactly our location as the cruise progressed. Dining We aren’t restricted by diet problems and enjoyed our dinners unhesitatingly in the main dining room: escargots, fresh salads, salmon, prime rib, seafood orzo, beef bourguignon were among our preferences. As frequent travelers on Celebrity ships, we joked with staff that the menus have been identical fleet-wide for ages, right down to cherries jubilee, souffles and bananas Foster. Apparently, it has to be so as menu variations are extremely costly to implement. That’s the explanation given, anyway! Deck 14 Oceanview cafe’s buffet breakfast and lunch menus were generally excellent. If you want to miss the seething crowd, get up for breakfast a 7.00 a.m. and return promptly at noon for lunch. We recommend the Indian lunch and English breakfasts in particular. Elite status meant we could eat continental breakfast and sip café latte in comfort at the Toscana Grill. Carmen (from Lima) was friendly and served us well. Breakfast and lunch in the main dining room were more relaxing than the hustle and bustle up in Oceanview, but more leisurely too. Our experience with room service at lunch time was good. When they said 30 minutes for delivery they meant it. The food arrived hot and on time. Entertainment We went to the first show in the Celebrity Theater most nights and generally thought the quality excellent. The ship’s own singers, acrobats and dancers performed with great coordination and esprit de corps. One comedian was funny, another less so, as is ever the case. Don’t overlook current movies that are shown on a big Celebrity screen several days. We caught up with an excellent performance by Judi Dench as Queen Victoria. Ports-of-Call On other cruises we have either organized or participated in small group cruisecritic tours or gone on Celebrity excursions. This time we went ashore on our own. At Key West we can recommend the Grey City View HOHO Trolley. The driver gave an entertaining and informative commentary as he drove us around the main city sights. We stayed on board for the full 90 minutes. If you disembark, they say another trolley will come by every twenty minutes. We bought discounted Groupon tickets in advance. As my companion has mobility problems (temporary, we hope), we went no further than the Disney-style cruise port at Costa Maya. It’s quite a distance from the ship to the end of the dock: a free shuttle tram was welcome. We bought $5 baseball caps and the vanilla essence for which the region is famous. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. Our third visit to Cozumel, we knew to take one of the many taxis available right outside the terminal. The flat rate for the 2 mile ride downtown is $4 per head. We got out of the cab at Cinco Soles store on the main drag, which has far more merchandise than the branch at the cruise terminal. The staff helped us choose small silver gifts, earrings and bracelets, to take home. From there it’s a short walk to the Benito Juarez Park. Blanc du Nil sells attractive white blouses and shirts. For inexpensive authentic Mexican food, we recommend Abuelo Gerardo restaurant at No.21, 10th Avenue North. It’s located about 3 blocks in from the main drag. We ordered beef fajitas and shrimp (camarones) quesadillas, washed down by Bohemia beer. Todo delicioso! Having been twice before to Grand Cayman we decided to stay on board. In view of my companion’s knee problem we thought it better to avoid struggling on and off the tender. Disembarkation We asked friends to arrive outside the terminal at 10.00 a.m. to pick us up. Knowing this, the ship scheduled us to disembark at 9.20 but we didn’t emerge till 10.15. There simply weren’t enough US Immigration agents on duty to handle 3000 people swiftly, even though individual inspections were perfunctory. This is a regular occurrence in Port Everglades and the cruise companies need to use their muscle to bring Immigration service up to par. Summary Another good week on board a Celebrity ship, thanks to the officers and crew. Keep up the good work, you guys! Read Less

B2B cruise, room 1501, Aqua Class. With B2B, guests wait until all other guests have disembarked. After this we exit as a group and go to the terminal for immigration go check passports, get new cards and back on ship. Ate in Blu most of the week, except for Chefs Table and Murano. We had become disillusioned with Blu during a previous cruise as we found it too busy and guests were rushed. Darko was an excellent waiter and we did not find the negative atmosphere we had in the past. Very happy with Blu during this cruise. Chefs table and Murano were excellent, both food and service. Cabin was good and attendant! Paz was excellent and the room was located at the very front of the ship. Ports were okay and weather was a little cool and windy at times. Service as always was impeccable and the crew were excellent. Disembarkation was disorganized and there weren’t enough the lines to keep them crowd orderly. Not sure what happened here as this was unusual. Read Less

We were in Aqua class with access to Blu restaurant for dinners and breakfasts. Absolutely no complaints about quality and service of amazing staff, maitre d's, servers Wayne and Darko. The weather cooperated allowing for the pool deck dance and pool activities, lounging, and drinking, drinking, and more drinking those wonderful frozen cocktails. The entertainment was a good mix of production and comedians. Cabin steward Melahio was always on top of keeping up with the cabin and requests with a smile always on. We zipped through embarkation and were in our rooms by noon, with luggage arriving shortly behind. We never felt crowded on the big ship. Staff were so pleasant and helpful. Set up the Qasar lounge for the playoff games. I would love to see the real sports bar back instead of Cellar Masters which was rarely used, as the one they say is a sports bar at the casino's edge is not--9 seats right next to slot machines?? So please with this Celebrity cruise. Read Less

We are a couple in our 50s and this was about our 12th or 13th cruise. We've sailed on Celebrity (this was our 4th), Royal Caribbean, NCL, Holland and Carnival. We had a balcony cabin for this cruise and this was a 7-day Western Caribbean cruise. Overall, we would score this cruise 85 out of 100. WHAT WE LIKED - The ship is soo beautiful and elegant and easy to navigate - We loved our balcony cabin which felt spacious, was well-designed and generally comfortable (with the exception of the bed..more on that below). - The specialty restaurants! We are not normally people who splurge on this kind of thing, but we had a good amount of shipboard credit to use, so we got a 5-dinner package. We dined at Qsine (we thought the food here was just okay and some of it tasted weird, although presentation was fun), Murano (excellent, sophisticated and gourmet), Tuscan Grill (the best of all of them...especially the lobster rigatoni alfredo!), The Porch (relaxed dining, lots of seafood options), and Lawn Club Grill (loved this one, especially the wood fired pizza and the warm chocolate chip cookie with ice cream). - Dinner In the main dining room. The food was great and we thought the Grand Cuvee was a beautiful space. - The service - our cabin steward did an awesome job, as did everyone on the ship. While there were a small percentage of staff that seemed serious or cranky (maybe 5%), the vast majority were warm, friendly and smiling. ALL staff are hard working. - The second comedian of the cruise...Derek-somebody. He was freaking hilarious and I was laughing so hard throughout his show, I had tears streaming down my face. - Our fellow passengers - this line obviously attracts a more classy crowd and we appreciated how mannerly, courteous and friendly everyone was. We observed very little borish behavior like pushing, cutting in line, running other passengers over with scooters, yelling (or talking loudly), and it was nice to see people dressing up nicely for dinner. While tuxes and gowns are now a rarity, most people did wear nice clothes to dinner and we saw very few passengers in jeans and tee-shirts. We also loved the fact that there were very few children on this cruise. It made the whole experience more enjoyable and relaxing. - The Solarium. We always enjoy solarium on ships but this one was extra nice with the beautiful New Age music, comfy loungers and beautiful fountain. - The premium drink package. We received the classic package as part of our booking but we upgraded hubby to the premium package. He loved the wide variety offered in wines, spirits, beer and cordials. He also liked the World Class bar and Cellar Masters wine room.I - Lots of comfortable relaxing areas in the ship. I have been on other ships (for example NCL) where you cannot find a relaxing, quiet place to sit to save your life. On the Silhouette, these types of spaces abound, both inside and outside on the decks. WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE - Music in the pool area (piped in music) was too juvenile for the demographic. Average passenger age on this ship is 55-65 but much of the music at the pool was teeny bopper music like Brittany Spears, Mariah Carey, etc. It would have been great to hear pop and rock music from the 60s - 80s. We actually avoided the main pool area most of the time because of the annoying "music". - Live music on the ship - all of the musicians were good but there was far too much loungy music, not enough up-tempo music suitable for dancing around the ship. The music that WAS up-tempo was usually stuff that doesn't necessarily inspire you to want to get up and dance, like blues. The bars, Quasar and Sky Lounge would be great venues for a hopping party band, but every time we walked into those bars there was either nothing going on or some terrible piped-in music (polka!!???) Celebrity, please realize that just because your clientele is a little on the older side, doesn't mean we don't want to shake our booties! People in their 60s and 70s today are not like older people from decades ago. We spoke to a couple in their 70s and they too were lamenting the lack of really upbeat dance music on the ship. That tells you how sedate it was. This issue alone would prevent us from sailing on Celebrity again, despite all of the great things about the line. Oh, and this was the first cruise we have been on that didn't have a Latin or Caribbean band. - The food in the buffet - The only excellent thing we tasted in the buffet was the pizza, which was shockingly good. The made-to-order omelets were pretty good too. Everything else we tasted was fair to inedible. A raisin muffin I tried was so bad, I actually spit it out. I have no idea how it is possible to make a simple muffin taste that bad. - Too much space on the ship wasted on ultra luxury shopping. From what I can tell, Celebrity passengers are mostly middle to upper middle class, not Rockefellars. We didn't see a single person shopping in the Cartier shop. One watch my hubby saw in a window (that came with an adorable model yacht) cost over $2,000. There were several luxury stores that had no customers in them, no matter what time of day we walked by. - The bed in our cabin - was so firm, it gave me serious back pain. Thankfully, our cabin steward was able to add an extra mattress pad which fixed the problem. - Pools are too chilly. I am not a person who tends to be cold but both the pools in the main pool area and solarium were chilly and uncomfortable to get in. They need to be heated a little more this time of year (winter). Additionally, the Solarium area is often chilly when it would be more appropriate for it to be a little warmer. The A.C. was blasting in there. Overall we had a really nice time and are happy with our experience on this cruise. I would say this cruise is perfect for older, sophisticated people who prefer a more sedate experience. If you like slow dancing or polka (ha ha) you probably will be very happy on this ship. If you prefer a more lively experience and you are energetic and youthful in your approach to life, you might be happier on Royal Caribbean, although there are many more children on RC cruises.

We had a good time on this cruise. I went on several Disney ones as my kid was growing, and tried Celebrity for an adult centric line. The first impression at the pier was not what I expected of a luxury line. The Disney terminal is well appointed - carpeted, a large ship model and character photo op. The Celebrity terminal is more like a warehouse. The dining in the specialty restaurants was outstanding. We couldn't even get to all of the restaurants. My favorites were Tuscan Grill and Qsine. My least favorite was our home restaurant Blu. The menu selections were sparse. I booked Aqua class for access to the spa, but I didn't want "healthy" eating - I go on a cruise to enjoy whatever I want. The spa was nice, thought there were no barbells, only dumbells, so I couldn't do my usual routine and should have left my gym gear at home. The hot tubs were not hot - only lukewarm. I don't see the point in that. The weather was unseasonably cool, so a hot tub would have been especially welcome. The entertainment was only fair. Disney's is head and shoulders above Celebrity, with full on Broadway quality every night. I learned to make a great martini on a Disney ship, not Celebrity, and the Disney class was free. Celebrity charges for most everything, including a simple group yoga class. I booked balcony rooms on Disney and on this Celebrity. Both have good quality rooms, but I really missed the split bathrooms of the Disney Magic and Wonder, with a commode and sink in one, sink and tub/shower in another room. It's handy even with only two people in the cabin. The tub/ shower on the Disney ship is larger than my Silhouette Aqua class shower, and is an actual tub, vs the phone booth sized plastic shower in the Celebrity Silhouette Aqua class room. On Disney and the Norwegian Gem, there was more weather and bridge navigation data on the cabin TV channel - both a geek and general information advantage. For example, Celebrity only notes the daily forecast temperature, not the current temp. I loved the baggage valet service! For $25 per person, our bags were left outside as usual, but Celebrity took care of checking us in for the flight and forwarded the bags, left boarding passes in our room. I could see that our bags were safely en route with us via the airline app, and the next time we saw them was at baggage claim at O'Hare. All in all a good luxury cruise, but because of the entertainment and cabin layout, I may try another line in the Celebrity / RC line or go back to Disney. Read Less

Here are my notes on the cruise, I picked Celebrity as I really liked the look of their ships - and this itinerary entailed visiting five places I had never been to before. [b]The Good Stuff[/b] - staff were excellent, Celebrity really let their personality shine and it they made the cruise overall an absolute pleasure - QSine: dining here was USD45 per person, and there was so much food. The sushi here was better than Sushi on 5, their play on every course was a delight. They recommend you go for five or six courses, we were struggling to finish our fourth! - The Lawn Grill: possibly my favourite meal of the week: the menu has 'Chefs Wanted' on it: so you can actually throw your own flatbread and cook your steaks at the open air kitchen. Again, USD 45.00 but great fun. - Martini Bar: this tended to be the most social area of the ship, which takes me to my next point: - the people we met on board were brilliant! Made so many new friends, everyone was so social and up or a chat. It made the occasional person who didn't say Good Morning in the elevator for example, stand out like a sore thumb! - the beds were very comfortable and there was a surprising amount of storage space in our balcony cabin - the balcony was nice. It was listed as Obstructed View, but as you can see from the pic below, it was a minor obstruction - security was excellent, and I felt reassured each time we boarded with the XRay machines etc. - entertainment highlight: a group of singers called Uptown - really excellent. The acrobatics and trapeze shows were superb, although I heard a few people saying the entertainment was not good. The silent disco was one of the best things I have ever done! - I really liked the public bathrooms. There was always someone there making sure they stayed spic and span. And actual hand towels - I approve! - the artwork throughout the ship was lovely - our cabin was great, with amazing water pressure in the showers! - there was also a sofa, coffee table, tv and minibar between the balcony and bedroom area. - back to food, the Oceanview Cafe felt like it had been lifted from a car ferry. But it was pretty wholesome, good comfort food. I liked that the Indian food section had actually spicy, hot Indian food, rather than trying to 'keep it safe'. Also, the pizza here was excellent! [b]The not so good[/b] - The bars tended to be understaffed for the amount of people there. This lead to the annoying situation of people arriving at the bar after, being served first. This is an 'amber light' because as the staff recognised us as days went out, we tended to get served pretty quickly. One way we made friends was to ensure we weren't queue jumpers ourselves. - We went back to QSine for lunch, but it turned out to be a set courses of sea food. Not my first choice. Although, when this arrived, we assumed it was to share. We were wrong! - On every excursion, you basically signed your life away. Celebrity weren't responsible for your death or injury. While I'm sure the legality could be challenged, it felt like a real downer. I didn't rate the excursions at all, apart from the one to some ancient Mayan ruins which was fascinating. - Grand Cayman was particularly disappointing with what appeared to be the mistreatment of the Stingrays. I was delighted to be paddling in water with the rays happily swimming around me, I didn't care for the organisers grabbing them and dragging them over to a circle of us humans. My pal said one of the rays was actually bleeding, but not sure how it was caused. The snorkling was disappointing too - perhaps one of the storms is to blame? Incidentally, the drive back to the ship, was in a word, hair-raising. I didn't feel at all safe. There was then a hard sell on photographs on the way back, with the boat deliberately slowed down to ensure the hard-sell could be completed. (USD 40 for a few photographs - emailed!!) - I know it's for health reasons, but having to hold your hand out to get a squirt of cleansing gel every time you went into the Oceanview Cafe felt very child like. But I guess if it prevents Novovirus then who am I to complain? [b]The downright annoying[/b] - boarding was from a warehouse, basically. Port Everglades Quay 29 was pretty awful. We first queued in blistering sunshine (I'm from London. 24C was blistering!) for an age, before being led into this grim warehouse for security then another huge queue to get our boarding cards. - there was a faint, yet strange smell around our deck which, was a bit like stale urine. Couldn't really work out why, because a) the ship and cabin was spotless b) it either went away or we got used to it - had lunch in the main dining room "Grand Cuvee" and it was really poor. We did not return. - The up-selling was incessant on days one and two, embarrassingly so. C'mon Celebrity, surely you are better than this? At every bar and restaurant we felt like we were being accosted (we were followed on several occasions by staff trying to get us to upgrade to Premium Drinks and extra dining packages and this was not a good introduction to Celebrity.) - cakes in Oceanview cafe looked amazing, but were really tasteless. Not sure how they managed that as they looked amazing - Wifi was USD249 per device. Having said that, it was fast, and enabled access to Netflix for those lazy moments at sea. - Certainly not my experience, but during several conversations, other more regular cruisers noted that 'This is not a good ship. Not a good ship at all'. Odd! Overall then, it was a good experience. I think I would like to try Celebrity Edge, but also see what other brands have to offer. Don't get me wrong, while I was annoyed by some aspects of the cruise, this is mainly due to what Celebrity promise and what they deliver. I struggle with Celebrity being seen as a more upmarket cruise line. It felt like a Hilton Hotel. (I don't rate Hilton) WIth eyes wide open, I was happily try Royal Caribbean. They have WATER SLIDES!! Read Less

We chose this cruise to accompany a friend of ours that had sailed with, and highly recommended Celebrity. This was our first cruise with Celebrity. I had decided that cruises weren't for me, but agreed to this one. My experience on Celebrity Silhouette has changed my mind! The cruise itself was efficiently organized in all phases and being run smoothly (although there are waits), out of Ft. Lauderdale. The atmosphere of this ship is elegant, more adult, yet very comfortable. The staff in all areas were extremely friendly and accommodating. Although there weren't rock walls, water slides, mini golf, etc., which my adult children (and husband!), somewhat missed, this ship did offer luxurious, yet very comfortable areas to relax as well as celebrate! The Spa with the Persian Garden was extremely relaxing. There is also a teen lounge where various activities are offered. Much of the on board entertainment offered was enjoyed by my 3 children; 22, 19, 16. There were pools inside and enclosed, with enclosed hammock areas. There's a good fitness center. Although there were 5 or 6 jacuzzi's (very nice!), and some were warmer than others, none were quite hot enough for us but enjoyable. A "grass" deck is offered where we rented a cabana and played bocce ball. Again, very comfortable... home on the Seas! The unique elegantly appointed areas of the Library, the Hideaway, and Sky Lounge are wonderful. The views from the Sunset cafe are breathtaking on any afternoon and evening. Another favorite spot was the Baccio Cafe, indoors, viewing the seas, where I could grab a latte or an Irish coffee, or even a glass of wine to enjoy with numerous baked items to choose from. The entertainment was excellent with the entertainment group, the dancers being very talented. The excursions, though a bit pricey were very good with excellent sites to see with competent, professional guides. We would happily sail with Celebrity again and highly recommend this Cruise line!

We chose this cruise to get out of the cold in January. We stayed at Embassy Suites by the dock and they are pros at handling multiple ships to put their customers on in a timely manner. The dock was surprisingly uncrowded. Embarkation was quick. The ship looks good, the cabin was very nice in Aqua Class. Aqua Class has their own restaurant with the best service!!! Food is lighter and great! We tried the buffet once and it was good and fresh but we liked the Spa Cafe for lighter breakfast and lunch in a quiet ambiance with a pool and relaxing music. We loved Emotions string duo and the House band was good. The coffee place is excellent for day or night entertainment with wine. All staff very friendly. Embarkation was also pretty quick. We loved Key West and the after cruise ride to the airport was terriffic with an hour and a half boat ride of the canals and history of Ft. Lauderdale. I would like to see a piano bar and more on demand movies. Read Less

This was a free cruise, so we had limited choices. Surprisingly enough, the ship and the itinerary were just what we were looking for. So, easy choice. The service has to be mentioned first and foremost. I understand that these folks serve a new group of cruisers every week, and they are programmed to make everyone think they are on the best cruise ever, but Wow, if they were not sincere, they fooled us and everyone that we talked to. Every crew member all over the ship seemed to know what we wanted before we did, and then bent over backwards to make sure we were happy. I can't even begin to start mentioning names, because leaving someone out would be such a disservice. The ship is the same as others in this class: simply a beautiful ship. The food was as good as any we have ever had. The specialty restaurants were fabulous. Our evenings were so enjoyable: nice meal, quality entertainment, and some wonderful music around the ship; the string duet being our favorite. A few trips to the casino highlighted our sea days and evenings as well. The entertainment was very nice, especially the first comedy show. Just a recommendation to all cruise ships worldwide: you MUST do something about the long customs lines. During the time we were being herded through the terminal waiting, we thought of no less than three very simple ways that the cruise line could make the process better and faster for cruisers coming off the ship. And we think of those things just about every time, coming off of every cruise, no matter where we are. In fact, we have only had two cruises ever where we disembarked and did not get into a long line. Read Less

This is our third sailing on the Silhouette. It is our favorite ship. It has been kept updated and the quality of everything is consistent. We eat in the MDR and find it to be exceptional. The nightly shows have been improved. There seems to be less entertainment around the ship but that is not a major issue for us. There is still plenty and the Activities Staff keeps things going. We stopped at Key West, Costa Mesa, Cozumel and Grand Cayman. All except Costa Mesa are excellent stops. Costa Mesa is a pretend port and we just stay on ship.There are plenty of options at the other ports for excursions or to just walk around and do things on your own. The staff has always been top notch and keeps you very well informed. This was probably the smoothest sailing we have ever had. We find Celebrity overall to be the most consistent cruise line that we have sailed. Read Less
