This was the second half of our first back to back. We love to sail, snorkel and swim in the Caribbean waters, so this cruise was perfect for us as we loved all the ports. We did mostly private excursions as we prefer small groups. The sky suite corner aft is our favorite location...love the view. Crew from stateroom attendant to Luminae staff did everything to pamper us. Our cabin was kept spotless. Our butler was one of the best ever. Dinner and wine selections were very nice. Our only complaint was that the music was so loud that you couldn’t carry on a conversation in the bars. An after dinner drink with friends became a challenge. In the theater, singers sounded like they were screeching...much too loud for us. Overall, though. the entertainment was varied and pretty good. Embarkation and disembarkation was quick and smooth. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with both old and new friends, and plan on doing it all over again next year! Read Less

We went to the Lawn Club specialty restaurant three times. The menu and food are excellent, as is the atmosphere up on the top deck. We had not done this on previous cruises thinking you helped grill the meat. That's an option but one few people choose. We went to the La Petit Chef specialty also, and food was good, but consider it a one-time thing to watch the visual graphics show. The food and service in the dining room is good. We do Conicerge class and Taryn the concierge on our ship was excellent to help with questions or minor issues. We akways choose Celebrity, having done over 20 cruises with them. We love their ships and being warm in the Caribbean. We are not big fans of the production shows as we think they are aimed at a younger audience than is on the ship. But there were excellent comedias and singers and Hard Day's Night Beatles group is very good and fun. Already looking forward to next year on Celebrity. Read Less

Wh chose to spend our 50th wedding anniversary on a cruise because of some mobility issues we have experienced. We wanted to have unencumbered access to dining and entertainment venues. The Silhouette exceeded all expectations. All staff and fellow passengers went above and beyond in accommodation our mobility issues. These issues weighed heavily prior to our trip. Embarkation went smoothly, accessible sky suite was meticulous,thank you Mario, Luminae-outstanding meals and service, Franko, Eka, Zenia, and Djan. The butler and the concierge service was extraordinary, Irena and Vanessa Kept us fully abreast of the ship’s activities and Mario was always there to open the cabin door for us. We ate in Murano and Tuscan Grille twice and the Lawn Club once. Three fabulous stops! Most of our meals were in Luminae which afforded us premier service and gastronomic excellence. Michael’s Club had Vannessa and Albert, a winning duo to make you feel at home. The Casino dealers: Anna, Gladys, Valentina, Dragos, Igor and all the servers were terrifIc. The entertainment, activities, games, shopping, and karaoke were all great fun. This was our 6th cruise, first time on Celebrity and it keeps getting better. We booked a 12 night for our next cruise on the Equinox. Read Less

The staff overall are fantastic, as usual not all can be great. The Martini bar staff were an amazing group. The Mast bar staff of men were by far the worst, so just avoid that bar and have a great vacation. The pools are small but we were rarely in them. Most bars were nice, yet we did not hit them all. Food in main dining area was top shelf, were the main buffet area had lots of good food with some average mixed in. There was definitely plenty to choose from. The indian food in the buffet was great. The entertainment crew put on a great dance routine near the end of the trip, my wife being a former dancer was thrilled and moved to tears. Being our first cruise we did not spend much time in the theatre. The casino was a hit with our group, a number of us came home winners. Read Less

We chose this cruise for the time of year and because we had never been to the ABC islands before or on the Silhouette before either. She’s a beautiful ship with a wonderful crew. Very friendly and gracious. Wonderful experience in the MDR, with very good food and service from Randy and Khorizan. Murano was excellent as always and the Lawnclub Grill was great also. We were disappointed in the service at Tuscan Grill, the waiter was fine but the sommelier was invisible till the end of the night when we were already finished. Our cabin being aft, way aft, was a hike to get to and helped burn some of the extra calories consumed on the cruise ;/ It was kept immaculate by our attendant Damellia, who also greeted us with a friendly greeting and big smile both morning and evening. We didn’t go to the ship run shows at night, but the ones brought on were very good to great! Loved Billy McGuiggan! Would definitely love to go again! Read Less

We had a great cruise from embarkation tto disembarkation. We were in a veranda room on Deck 6 that was close to the iLounge & the elevators on the Starboard side. We are early risers and early to bed people and were able to sleep well without outside noise. Our room attendant was excellent. When we returned to the room each day, it had been made up. Even though we rehung our towels on the racks, he switched them out with new ones. He even provided a few flowers in a bud vase early in the cruise. Our dining room staff was great, although the assistant waiter was not very visible. It seemed thatt the main server did all the work. Even in that case, her service was great. The food in the main dining room was good for every meal. We especially enjoyed the bread each evening. We tried the Lawn Club & Sushi on 5 for lunch. We really enjoyed the sushi, but the Lawn Club Grill was just okay. I doubt that we'd try them again. We had breakfast in the main dining room everyday. We had lunch in the main dining room once and we did not really enjoy it at all. We took advantage of our Elite status & went to the Persian Garden on Sunday while the shp was in port in Grand Cayman. It was very relaxing. If we ever book in a suite, I'll definately take advantage of it more often. Overall, it was a great cruise & I can't wait to go again! Read Less

We are fans of Celebrity and this was our first time on the Silhouette. It is a lovely ship, with a very competent and involved crew. Our room was clean, and well-maintained by our cabin steward Enrico. We were with four other couples, and were seated at a table for 10 in the middle of the gorgeous dining room. We had great waiters: Alfi and Robert. The assistant Maitre D', Olga, was especially attentive to our particular needs, and dietary requirements. She made sure that we had plenty to eat and choices that were varied. She even got the chef to prepare some exclusive foods from recipes that we supplied. The ports of call were mostly ones that we've been to on previous cruises. It would be nice if there was more variety in that department. The entertainment was mostly good and varied. But overall, we complained that the volume of music (some might call it noise) during the shows is terribly excessive. I often walked out of the theatre after a 45 minute musical barrage with my ears hurting. Although we complained to the cruise director about it, it didn't do any good. In fact, it is hard to find a bit of peace and quiet on this ship, anywhere. There is music constantly, and usually at very high volume. But, there is so much to do, from games of trivia, to lectures, and demonstrations, internal tours of the ship, and of course, eating. The cafeteria serves a tremendous variety of food, and it's open almost 18 hours a day. On the subject of food: Since we observe the Jewish dietary rules, we were able to prearrange for kosher meat (not the prepared airline dinners) through our travel agent. And we had dinners that included a choice of chicken, lamb, and turkey. Our Maitre d' was especially cognizant of the details of this, and was most helpful. She would help us choose the next evening's dinner in advance, each night. She even arranged for our group to have a supply of custom-made cheese blintzes every morning in the cafeteria. The entire experience was a very good one. The ship was full to capacity, yet one never felt crowded-out. We stayed on-board for the next cruise, in the same cabin. See the next report. Read Less

Have been on the Silhouette only once before, and this was our second cruise. We were a little apprehensive as we were really impressed the first time out. This time out did not fail to deliver. We were impressed again. The ship was clean and well oiled by the Captain and his crew. The cabins were impeccable once again and our attendant Jannis was top notch. She greeted us every time with a smile - morning, noon, and night. Felt like we were part of her family. Dining in Oceanview was over packed at times, but the quality of food - unbelievable. The Grand Cuvee staff made us feel at home. Ramburn was a top notch attendant and had great presence of mind towards our needs only after the first time. Sue had entertainment nailed down to a science, and not without her own wit and charm. All acts were great. All presentations were full of info and knowledge. Really enjoyed the Titanic lectures. This was a 9 night tour around the ABC's and Grand Cayman. The beaches were great and locations really tourists invested. We really enjoyed Curacao for the history, and Bonaire for the Snorkelling adventure with Woodwind Adventures. Dee was great with us as beginners. Would definitely go again. Read Less

So nice to get out of the cold and settle in to another Celebrity cruise. 12 days in the sun, lots of islands to visit, and a wonderful ship all the while. Silhouette is still a great ship and the service on board has not slipped. We ate in Blu each night for dinner where the staff were once again amazing. We did think the food quality has gone down a bit from past cruises, but actually chalked that up to the chef who seemed to blunder at times with some of the standard menu items. Others were as good or better than we have had in the past. Our cabin in Aqua was fine, clean, spacious and centrally located. Quiet too. The ports in the Caribbean are typically the same. We did not go to any of the evening shows, finding the listings cheesy and amateurish enough to avoid. All of the bands performing around the ship were pretty bad too, although the solo guitar player was more than enjoyable. Bars were packed early but no so much late at night. All in all we had a fine time and plan on booking a similar cruise next January. Read Less

From the staff who organised the embarkation and disembarkation procedure to the people who welcomed us onboard till we arrived home and everyone in between including the captain, waiting staff, stateroom attendants every single member of staff on the cruise ship were excellent and a great credit to Celebrity Cruises. Every staff member deserves a mention and should be commended on their great service. The staterooms were spotless and a very good size. The entertainment was fabulous with such a variety to suit everybody's taste. The food was so good and we can honestly say we never had a single thing to eat that was not lovely. We travelled as a couple and would recommend this company and have done to family and friends. The shore excursions that we did do were very well organised informative and we thoroughly enjoyed them. I could not fault any part of the cruise and we look forward to sailing with the company again. Read Less
