  3. Celebrity Silhouette
This was our second Celebrity cruise - we enjoyed the Summit so much we thought we would give this ship a try since the British Isles were on our bucket list - and we had family traveling this itinerary as well! Silhouette is easy to navigate and finding our way around didn't take long. She is a beautiful ship and well maintained. We found no fault with any of the public areas or our cabin We had Select Dining option and we made reservations for the entire voyage as we were a group of 6. It was nice to have the same wait staff each evening and they were fantastic. We found the menu's just so-so and often went for the "everyday" menu - the Sirloin was great every-time! Breakfast in the Buffet was great and many made to order options were available. Entertainment was a huge disappointment - from the first night with a hypnotist who could only manage 4 subjects, to a trio of ladies who separately were okay but when they tried to harmonize it was not good. The Beatles imitators did a poor job of representing what I remembered the Beatles to be like - and for me there wasn't enough local flavor - I expected more Irish and Scottish music for sure! Bar service was not great- often we would have a waiter take our order and our sea passes and not see him again for 15-20 minutes. Typically they would take orders from 3 or more groups to minimize their "travel" time I think but it made for some very long waits for a drink. There was no consistency with bar staff - a simple drink like a Pina Colada was made different every time! We did not take any shore excursions with the ship - we prefer to book locally and with smaller vendors, which worked out well on this trip. This was a great itinerary and gives you a taste of the British Isles while having your luggage stay in one place! Loved being able to walk off the ship in Liverpool and Cobh, but most ports are industrial and require transportation to the city or town which was fine - often shuttles are available either free or for a small fee, but be prepared for some walking.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda
Cabin 1C 8290
We had a Veranda on Deck 8 Starboard Aft - great location and the cabin was large enough for two adults; adequate storage areas for clothes although I did find the over the bed storage cabinets hard to reach and keep clothing organized. Suitcases fit nicely under the bed for storage. The doors on each "set" of cabins are right next to each other and can be very loud if your neighbor decides to just let the door "slam" on the way out. We found the cabin quite except for this disruption.
