Celebrity Silhouette Cruise Review by bagsy1

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2018
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Sky Suite 2

We have taken more than 20 Celebrity Cuises and chose this itinerary as it sailed from and returned to Southampton for a no fly Cruise as my wife has walking difficulties and did not wish to fly.

We had an Accessible Suite which was ok but looking dated in decor but was otherwise finebut the wet room shower leaked water all around the bathroom which we avoided by placing towels s a water break.

The main problem was incessant noise from the cafe overhead and overnight disturbing our sleep in the small hours of the morning.

Also a strong smell of fried onions and garlic pervaded the corridor outside the cabinand at times was also inside the cabin.

The ship is otherwise a modern cruise ship with. good facilitates but in inclement weather there is insufficient comfortable seating . Unfortunately we had several days of poor weather. The seating looks modern but the seat depth does not work well if you are much under 6 foot as your feet might not touch the floor.

The quality of the food has deteriorated and many of the steak meals the meet is tastes likeit has been heavily over salted. This was explained " the tougher cuts of meat aremarinated to soften the meat and make it edible".

The service in the Luminae Restaurant was excellent

We enjoyed the shows but the timings have changed to 7 pm pre dinner and 9 pm post dinner which means a rush to get ready for the early show and then struggling to get a tableat 8 pm and eating late or eating early and rushing to be finished in time for the show.

This is the first time that we have questioned whether we will book another Celebrity cruise especially as we were impressed by many aspects of our Cunard Cruise last year admittedlly in a Queens Class Cabin although the entertainment was not as good.
