Sail Date: Oct 2012
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda 1B

We sailed with a party of six on the 11 night Adriatic Cruise from Rome to Venice. It was very port intensive, with 12 ports (including embarkation in Rome and ending in Venice) which we loved. Yes, sea days are a nice break (and there was one) but when I go to Europe I want to see unique, beautiful places and this cruise certainly accomplished that!

The very best thing about this ship is its staff. There was not one staff member that did not greet me as I walked by and inquire after my well being. In every venue, public area and stateroom area, the staff made me feel like an honored guest. (It was a different story in the spa, but I learned they are contract workers, not directly employed by Celebrity and it shows! I cannot recommend the spa.) We prepaid our gratuities and were warned that, without incentive, the staff could be lax. Not so on the Silhouette. I cannot imagine being treated any better...I just cannot say enough about how good the entire staff was. We tipped many people above our prepaids. They were that exceptional.

The ship was spotless. Once I approached a beverage center where a guest had just left a used spoon and three staff members swooped in, one to whisk away the spoon, one to clean the area and one to pour my coffee.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda 1B

Cabin 1B

cabin 9232...balcony room...vista view unobstructed, looking down at lifeboats. Stewards used area outside of our room as their staging area. It was not problem for us because we were up and off the ship early, but I would not pick this room again because it was tiring to walk out right into the steward and/or his cart everyday.
