We have sailed on the Silhouette previously. Love the ship, perhaps our favorite Celebrity Ship. We were in a Celebrity Suite. Check in at terminal 25 went quickly. We were on the ship about 10:30 AM. We proceeded to Michael's club and met Vanessa, the Michael's Club concierge. She was great and helped to facilitate multiple reservations. We also saw Rose, the Captains club Hostess. She as always was great. We had lunch in Luminae. The staff also was always meeting our needs for special requests. However, we preferred the specialty restaurants for dinner. We then proceeded to our suite at about 1:00. Our butler Surin was also excellent- enjoyed breakfast on our balcony and in the suite. We used to get white table clothes, but apparently no longer used. Su our stateroom attendant was also wonderful and keep our suite immaculate and well stocked. We even found Maja from the shops excellent. The entire staff was great.

We had dinner in Qsine- which was changed to a wonderful show and dinner venue. It was better then any Disney dining room experience. While I really enjoyed the old Qsine menu, we did dine in Qsine twice on our cruise. We also enjoyed dinner at the Tuscan grill and Murano's. Our favorite specialty restaurant, the Lawn Club grill was excellent, we also had dinner at the Lawn Club Grill twice. We enjoyed spending time in an Alcove on Sea Days and had excellent service from the Alcove team. Only negative comment is when we went to the sunset bar near our alcove, we experienced horrible offensive Cigar smoke from two smokers. The wind allowed to smoke and smell to move into the no smoking area, as the smokers sat on the board of smoking and non smoking- Celebrity has a great no smoking policy in the Casino, and all internal areas of the ships. However, cigar's should be banned from the ship. The Captain Georgios Latrou was visible throughout the cruise- always a smile . We enjoyed taking photos as we had the photo package- what fun and great picture memories. I had my hair styled twice by Jose who was also great. Didn't use any other spa services. The shows were disappointing. Celebrity clearly dosen't invest in entertainment. Mostly one guest performers a night- also a couple of production shows that were poor. The dancers and singers talented by the shows had no substance. For great shows, we love Royal Oasis class ships. The internet was great- no connection problems. Disembarkation was easy and fast. We also were able to use the luggage valet program which was excellent and very worthwhile. We had laundry done- and I just recommend that you limit what you launder to underwear, sleepwear and tee shirts that aren't expensive as they use very hot water and detergent. We loved as usual, lthe Martini Bar. Didn't participate in any enrichment activities as non interested us. As always Cafe Al Bacio was wonderful. Enjoyed spending time their daily. StilWell at Al Bacio was great- he remembered my name and order.

The ports were great, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao and Grand Cayman. I am sure we will sail on the Silhouette again!
