Celebrity Silhouette Cruise Review by Jennyward57
- Sail Date: June 2018
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda
Sadly we were bitterly disappointed when the ship was unable to enter the harbour.
If it's known (as it was as this has happened before) why take such a large ship? Why wasn't this chance of being turned away mentioned in any literature? Why not have alternative destination on standbye?
The ship continued to sell Russian goods and shows while we say out at sea in a wind. Surely this was running salt into the wounds of the huge number of passengers who, like us booked the trip purely because of the St Petersburg destination!!!
Very disappointed Celebrity!!
Shame, this spoilt an otherwise perfect sailing!
Adored the Abba Museum! Sweden destination was very enjoyable but we had an issue with transport. You could buy tickets for the local Hop On - Hop Off buses around the city. Going out from the port was no problem whatsoever but we had to wait for one and a half hours for our return journey to the ship. As time was getting tight to catch the ship before it left we were forced to get a taxi. A bit annoying.
The dining facilities we found to be wonderful. We booked 4 speciality dining experiences and were not disappointed - great food and fantastic service.
The on board activities were not to our taste so didn't join in much, not really any blame, just a matter of taste.
Just great apart from the destination disaster!
Maybe I'll try again at some point but would choose the size of the ship more carefully next time
