This was our third cruise and second with Celebrity and we truly enjoyed ourselves. We chose this trip because of the itinerary - Barcelona, Palma De Mallorca, Gilbratar, Malaga, Lisbon and Cadiz (Seville) and it was during the Thanksgiving holiday in Canada where the weather was perfect for walking and visiting. Our overall impression of the Celebrity experience is positive - this ship had some of the friendliest crew members we've encountered in a long time. Our Silhouette dinning room crew, Milorad and Izlem, were top-notch. They were extremely attentive and fulfilled every request in a timely manner. They set the tone each day with a wide smile and friendly greeting.
The decor is sleek and minimalist with white curtains hanging in the shopping area. Modern art photos hung on stairway walls throughout the ship. The atrium was impressive but featured a huge multi-colored vase with a tree that shifted in the "wind." The public restrooms were modern and featured cloth and paper towels.
We really enjoyed the foods in the ship despite lack of some Asian foods on board, we appreciated more if we could have more Chinese and Vietnamese foods. We knew that there was a good Vietnamese cook on board.
This was a Concierge class C2 and the cabin was quite spacious - 182sq-ft. We enjoyed the sunshine everyday through veranda. The room service was a top-notch. However because we traveled in a period where the weather was a little bit cold some time particularly when the ship was at sea heading to Lisbon on Atlantic sea.
A lot of history
