Celebrity Silhouette Cruise Review by Jooza

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda 2B

We had never been on a cruise so had no idea what to expect. From the moment we arrived in the car park the service was exceptional. Our luggage was taken as soon as we opened the boot!!!

The embarcation was seamless and fairly quick and we were in our cabin in no time.

For the whole 2 weeks the service was perfect. The staff are so friendly and helpful and our cabin was spotlessly cleaned twice a day. The food was very good and the choice to eat in the restaurant or the buffet worked very well for us. The waiters were charming and very efficient and considering how busy they were gave a very personal service.

The pool areas were nice just a little busy on sea days. I think there should be a rule that sunbeds arnt taken with a book or towel then not used. A little frustrating when you have nowhere to sit.

Loved the trips. We booked a canal trip and visit to a palace in st Petersburg and was well worth doing. We also went to Berlin but I have to say that the 3 hours each way on the coach and the 9am to 9.30pm was a bit too much and only 2 hours in Berlin to walk about although the guides were very informative and took great care of us throughout.

The entertainment was varied and understandably cant please everyone all of the time but very good over all and a lovely theatre too.

We were very impressed with the care taken when visiting places as it was very hot every day and we were given cold flannels and water on embarking back to the ship. We will definitely be cruising with Celebrity again

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda 2B
Cabin 2B 7299

Lovely cabin. Large bathroom( I expected it to be much smaller as its a ship!) beds very comfortable and gorgeous sheets. Lots of storage. Lovely to have the balcony. Kept so clean by Francisco who couldn't do enough for us. Bring your own hair dryer is all I will say

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Brugge (Bruges)

Beautiful little town. A bit of walk from the ship though


Lovely place. Saw the little mermaid!! Great shops and very friendly people


The islands on the way in to Stockholm are beautiful so I recommend you get up early for that. Another lovely town and very busy. Canal is worth a boat trip for. Again very helpful and friendly people and a good choice of bars and restaurants

Neva River Cruise

Lovely experience and well worth the money.

Very infirmative when we got there it's a fascinating place but I wouldn't recommend this trip as 3 hours each way was just too much and had hardly any time in Berlin. The guides were great and looked after us with food and drink on the coach. I suggest that you stay on rostock for the day though and visit Berlin for a few days another time
