We stayed onboard for a second cruise on the Silhouette. See our review of the Feb 10, 2019 cruise that we posted. Most of what we commented on there applied. It was the very first time we've been on back-to-back cruises. We liked the fact that the itinerary was completely different, and there was no overlap of ports of call. Being a shorter cruise (9 days compared to 12 on the first cruise) the demographic was somewhat different. But what was disappointing was that the entertainment was mostly a repeat of what we had on the first cruise with 2 exceptions. So, there were nights we went either to see a movie, or do something else, rather than see the shows -- which weren't great and too loud anyways. We stayed in the same cabin, and had the same great cabin steward. But we were a group of 8, rather than 10, so they changed our table, which was located in a somewhat partly-crowded spot. We had a competent, but not involved wait team: Gilmon and Jayare Again, our Assistant maître d', Olga, continued to provide us with exceptional care and kosher meat dinners. While we're scheduled for two back-to-back cruises on the Silhouette for next year (after it is refurbished in drydock) the two itineraries are now practically identical (they weren't when we made the bookings in Feb 2018) so we might not end up taking both those cruises in 2020.
