We chose the med cruise because we did the baltics on same ship last year, what a difference Petty rules and regulations stopped kids and teens having fun Passengers tried to nake larger of 2 outdoor pools adult- only, managed to get it for over-12s only, leaving small pool over-crowded (about 600 kids and teens on ship) They tried to get all under-12s in kids factory and teens to stay in x-club to keep them out of the way of their preferred passangers They put a sea marshall permanently in hideaway, where they preferred to gather, and made them whisper The disco was in sky lounge and usually started at 11.45pm each evening, all under-18s were foreably ejected at midnight, even those sitting with parents A kid about 11 had a wanted photo of him placed around ship because he accidentally hit a girl with a water volleyball, he was escorted by 2 sea marshalls to his parents A lady photographed teens in hideaway and when was asked to delete photo, dragged one teen to guest relations, who were not interested when the teen said that was assault There were approx 500 extra guests on board than usual, this was very apparent in cafe and restaurant, as service was strained The entertainment was very poor and lack-lustre Sue, the cruise director, had no idea about entertaining families If you are thinking of travelling on silhouette in aug 2020, I would consider it very carefully, because the passengers travelling without family do not want their holiday compromised and the ship's officers pander to their every need, to the detriment of families

We chose the med cruise because we did the baltics on same ship last year, what a difference

Petty rules and regulations stopped kids and teens having fun

Passengers tried to nake larger of 2 outdoor pools adult- only, managed to get it for over-12s only, leaving small pool over-crowded (about 600 kids and teens on ship)

They tried to get all under-12s in kids factory and teens to stay in x-club to keep them out of the way of their preferred passangers

They put a sea marshall permanently in hideaway, where they preferred to gather, and made them whisper

The disco was in sky lounge and usually started at 11.45pm each evening, all under-18s were foreably ejected at midnight, even those sitting with parents

A kid about 11 had a wanted photo of him placed around ship because he accidentally hit a girl with a water volleyball, he was escorted by 2 sea marshalls to his parents

A lady photographed teens in hideaway and when was asked to delete photo, dragged one teen to guest relations, who were not interested when the teen said that was assault

There were approx 500 extra guests on board than usual, this was very apparent in cafe and restaurant, as service was strained

The entertainment was very poor and lack-lustre

Sue, the cruise director, had no idea about entertaining families

If you are thinking of travelling on silhouette in aug 2020, I would consider it very carefully, because the passengers travelling without family do not want their holiday compromised and the ship's officers pander to their every need, to the detriment of families
