We chose this cruise following a very pleasant cruise with Celebrity on the Equinox at Christmas and New year 2016/17. We thought the standards would be the same but what a mistake Although the layout of the ship is the same as the Equinox the service and standards were certainly nowhere near as good. As we stayed in a suite we ate most nights in Luminae . The food was tasty but the selection was somewhat lacking. My wife is glutton free and on the Equinox the chef went out of his way to help whereas on the Sillouhette we never even saw the chef. The standard of service from the waiters was nearly as good but the Somelier was not so good . It was a good job we were able to use Michael's bar as this was the only bar on the ship that was able to make my wife's favourite cocktail a bbc ( Bailey's, banana and coconut). We chose this cruise mainly because we wanted to see St Petersburg and we chose Celebrity because of our very good previous experience on the Equinox. However double disappointment we never go to see St Petersburg as the ship failed to dock due to high winds and we were disappointed with the ship. Six days in ports and eight days at sea was not what we signed up for

What a disappointment

Cabin Review

Celebrity Suite
Cabin CS 2116
Clean and tidy and up to expectations however the same fruit sat on our table for two weeks without being changed ar all. We did not use the mini bar as no drink in there was of our choice
