EMBARKATION: Easy breezy as we were in a suite. We arrived early and were escorted past all the lines and were on the ship within 15 minutes of arrival at the terminal. We even snuck into our room early and popped the champagne!
The Silhouette is a beautiful ship even if she is getting a little worn around the edges. (She needs a refresh mostly in terms of the seat cushions in the public areas, the towels and robes are getting a bit raggedy and furniture shows the dings.) But otherwise, the art throughout the ship is amazing and by famous contemporary artists. Do a little research and you will be blown away at all the modern pieces you can see up close, it's like a floating museum filled with millions of dollars worth of incredible art!
CABIN: We had C1 Concierge Suite 1112 which was conveniently located on deck 10 near the library. No complaints except the sink which didn't drain properly unless you removed the stopper completely. Plenty of memory foam pillows and extra hangers were provided upon request. Our butler, Teguh (from Bali, Indonesia) was exceptional, always available and anticipated our needs.
Our cabin was on Deck 10 and very conveniently located near the library. It had a large veranda with a lounge, two chairs and table. We had a large television facing an L-shaped sofa in our sitting room plus a bedroom with King bed. We had plenty of storage space including many drawers, two closets and lots of hangers (we ordered extras on request). Our butler provided memory foam pillows which were great. The shower was nice with good water pressure. Hairdryer worked well, there was also a bathroom scale under the sink. One minor complaint was the sink which didn't drain properly unless you removed the stopper completely.
