We had sailed the Silhouette before and loved it. The overall ambiance is sophisticated without being intimidating. The shops are upscale and there are many bars and lounges to suit anyone's taste. The martini bar (with ice counters) and Cellar Master (wine room) are across the Atrium on Promenade Deck. Both great gathering places, with Cellar Masters being more quiet. Wine bought by the glass in Vending Machine like devices. Good place to sample different wines. Cafe AL Bacio on Deck 5 is a very nice specialty coffee/tea area, which serves gelato and pastries as well. The pastries and cookies are complimentary and are a must to stop before retiring for one last sweet snack.
Entertainment was good, but the production shows were going for a more "edgy" look and feel. Not to my taste; songs did not always match the desired theme of the shows. I give credit to creativity and the dancers and singers were talented. The first and last shows (Pearl and Love?) were better than the "Around the World" show. One of the best shows was the "Chico" show, a one man show by one of the Cruise Director's staff. His voice was awesome.
We ate our meals in the main dining room and were NOT disappointed. The filet , prime rib and beef with Yorkshire pudding were superb! Tender and cooked to perfection. No need to pay to eat in specialty restaurants. Service was excellent; and our servers had some challenges with very demanding passengers.
Although this was a "partially obstructed" cabin, it really wasn't. The cabin is above QSINE (a specialty restaurant) and their roof extended out under our balcony. It actually seemed like our balcony was larger. The lifeboats were to the left and ended two cabins away. Bed was comfortable. Shelf storage was "iffy". A few drawers in the desk area and open box space in cabinets above the bed. The closet was sufficient, but no shelves in the closet. Bathroom space was really good, lots of shelves for your stuff. Bathrobes were provided
