Celebrity Silhouette Cruise Review by Eyedoc44
- Sail Date: January 2019
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Sky Suite
The ship is beautiful and well maintained. What absolutely added to the cruise was the Cruise Director, Sue Denning! We have had many cruise directors, but Sue has to be our age, mid 60's, but has the energy of someone in their 30's! From the time we got up in the morning, to late at night, Sue was always there. She was vivacious, and fun, but NOT over bearing! The entertainment was unbelievable, to good. Ivan Rutherford, who played Jean Valjean on Broadway and around the globe, performed a number of Broadway Show Tunes, and his voice was magnificent! There was a "comic/juggler" was on the bill. I am so sorry I forget his name. I said to my wife that I was not sure I even wanted to go to that show. That would have been a HUGE MISTAKE! To say he was a little funny would be like saying the Pope is a little Catholic! He was side splitting funny, and did a second performance matinee which was as good as the evening show! A group named Uptown, 3 guys from New York, were absolutely wonderful, and another senor moment since i can't remember his name, piano player/singer who has performed for years, and at the Grand Old Opry, was also great. The cast productions were OK.
The silhouette had something called "Silent Disco." We saw these people dancing in the disco on the 1st or 2nd night, with no music, just headphones on. Looked pretty lame, but on the 3rd night, they moved it out to the main section of the ship. Lame it is NOT! Again, my wife and I are in our mid 60's but very healthy and pretty much in shape. Well, Silent Disco has got to be the most enjoyable evening dance activity we have ever done. There were all ages there, from their 20's to their 70's. You really don't want to hear this loud disco music if you have a cabin close to the center core. So everyone has headphones with 3 channels, each one playing a different selection. You see all of these "weird people' dancing with no music, then all of a sudden, people are singing, off key I must say because you have the headphones on and can't hear yourself, to the chorus. We did Silent Disco 3 nights and we should have done it that 1st night.
There were a few "late night" activities for adults over 18 only. Hysterical!
I'm gonna end it here, but to say we had a great cruise would be short sighted! This was definitely one of the best cruises we have ever taken. I would go on the Celebrity Silhouette again in a heartbeat!
