Silhouette Western Car. 2/24

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Without going into a lot of details, this cruise on board the Silhouette was simply outstanding, I'm very surprised at some of the past reviews based on what we experienced. First, the whole staff was very friendly and accommodating, the ship was spotless, the food was terrific and the entertainment was as good as we have ever seen. So if you are scheduled for a future cruise on Silhouette, rest easy, you are in for a real treat.

I would like to especially mention the dining experience as it gains more attention from readers, we had one of the best waiters ever in the MDR and the food was outstanding. We did not go to any specialty restaurants as we had been in the past on other Celebrity ships, and the experience in the MDR was so good we looked forward to it every night.

We had the classic drink package and found it to be a real treat, the bar staff and wine steward in the MDR really served us well. Our wine glasses at dinner never went empty, and the inclusion of More specialty coffees was especially nice.

The only negative comment would be that the cruise director is rather bland, but it was a non-issue, the entertainers were so good, he didn't make any difference.

We boarded within thirty minutes of arrival at 11:30, and was off the ship at 7:30 upon debarkation and drove out of the garage within thirty minutes.

Great cruise ! Less

Cabin review: 2A9145 Deluxe Veranda

One of the nicest cabins we have had. Bathroom was larger than past ships, and the shower had glass doors. Balcony was large and had nice quality furniture. Interactive TV is very useful in ordering room service, making shore excursion reservations, dinner reservations , reviewing photographs, or checking your account.

Have visited Cozumel many times so we just went ashore to use wifi across the street at a cafe, enjoyed the ship while everyone else were ashore

We took the rafting trip on the Martha Brae which we have done one time before and thoroughly enjoyed it. The port area is extremely nice, but the shops are the same as in most Caribbean ports.

Simply the nice private cruise island we have experienced. Beautiful beaches, very clean, plenty of activities. Delicious barbecue lunch, and very nice to be able to use your beverage package on the island.
