We had not been on a big cruise ship before so we chose Celebrity X Silhouette for our first one. When we saw it as we arrived in Southampton we said "wow what a huge ship". Embarkation and Disembarkation went very smoothly. What a luxurouious ship throughout. Immaculate from top to toe. Pristine cleanlines everywhere on board. We had an inside stateroom on deck 8 number 8296 which was much bigger than we expected. Lovely furnishings. Good bathroom facilities. Our Cabin Steward Francisco was excellent a credit to Celebrity Cruises. Such variety of food throughout the day. Spoilt for choice each day. Entertainment was fantastic each evening. Daytime talks by NASA's Jim Kennedy were very very informative and enjoyable. Captain George's talk was excellent. So informative with a witty and fun style. We knew we had been in safe hands despite some rough seas during our 21st October 2018 cruise to Spain, the Canary Islands and Maderia. Drinks were expensive and we were disappointed that there was no "free Wifi" on board!! We enjoyed the five excursions we paid for. Disappointed that it rained in Tenerife whilst we were there. The service from all members of the crew was exemplary. We would certainly go on another Celebrity Cruise.
