Celebrity Silhouette Cruise Review by Chloe9
- Sail Date: January 2012
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda
The ports,O.K. not much to say. Labadee had a nice lunch provided, St. Juan could have skipped, St.Thomas Megan's Bay Beach extremely crowded, St.Martin nice, Antiqua lovely, St. Croix took snorkel trip to Buck's Island not my favorite since the sea is choppy always.
Our deluxe stateroom, O.K. attendant wonderful. Draw space well over the bed there it is.......
Negatives: Alot of elderly people, crowds, deck chairs in Solarium pool pushed together you have to crawl in unless you find an end chair. No thalossotherapy pool like on Millenium class ships. Upper deck 15: cabins $150 a day!!! never used, we never went up there. Art classes? only 10 people could sign up at a time, not user friendly even for a charge! Zumba? not really a psuedo thing going on in Quasar. Too many sea days.
...and let's not forget to top off our experience, the Norovirus............ All six of us got very sick which took about 4 days to fully recover. It happened in the middle of the cruise. Many passengers fell ill but didn't report it, crew members were ill as well. When we disembarked we heard several 100 passengers were stricken. Towards the end of the cruise passengers were not allowed to take ANYTHING for themselves in the dining venues they were served a glass of water by the crew, everything was roped off and plasticized in the buffet areas. Service in the dining room for breakfast was extremely slow. 3x my husband waited over 20mins to get a glass of o.j.
Positives: Lovely ship, clean ship, Aqua Spa Cafe, friendly staff, accommodating staff, NO SMOKING applied to upstairs in Sky Lounge deck 14!
NO SMOKING most of the ship! Murano restaurant, nice entertainment.
