We are fans of Celebrity and this was our first time on the Silhouette. It is a lovely ship, with a very competent and involved crew. Our room was clean, and well-maintained by our cabin steward Enrico. We were with four other couples, and were seated at a table for 10 in the middle of the gorgeous dining room. We had great waiters: Alfi and Robert. The assistant Maitre D', Olga, was especially attentive to our particular needs, and dietary requirements. She made sure that we had plenty to eat and choices that were varied. She even got the chef to prepare some exclusive foods from recipes that we supplied. The ports of call were mostly ones that we've been to on previous cruises. It would be nice if there was more variety in that department. The entertainment was mostly good and varied. But overall, we complained that the volume of music (some might call it noise) during the shows is terribly excessive. I often walked out of the theatre after a 45 minute musical barrage with my ears hurting. Although we complained to the cruise director about it, it didn't do any good. In fact, it is hard to find a bit of peace and quiet on this ship, anywhere. There is music constantly, and usually at very high volume. But, there is so much to do, from games of trivia, to lectures, and demonstrations, internal tours of the ship, and of course, eating. The cafeteria serves a tremendous variety of food, and it's open almost 18 hours a day. On the subject of food: Since we observe the Jewish dietary rules, we were able to prearrange for kosher meat (not the prepared airline dinners) through our travel agent. And we had dinners that included a choice of chicken, lamb, and turkey. Our Maitre d' was especially cognizant of the details of this, and was most helpful. She would help us choose the next evening's dinner in advance, each night. She even arranged for our group to have a supply of custom-made cheese blintzes every morning in the cafeteria. The entire experience was a very good one. The ship was full to capacity, yet one never felt crowded-out. We stayed on-board for the next cruise, in the same cabin. See the next report.
