After reading previous reviews I was slightly apprehensive about sailing on "Silly" although this was our tenth cruise with Celebrity and we have another two booked with them. There was some Downsides but these did not spoil our holiday and there was a lot of positives. Embarkation went smoothly. Went to the Bistro on Five for our lunch. The $10 surcharge was well worth the money especially for the new improved menu. The staff were so friendly and cheery it was unbelievable. We stayed here till our cabin was ready. Our cabin on deck ten was centrally located and kept clean and tidy by our cabin stewards. As regards the Main Dining Room - we had chosen the "my time dining" and I had pre-booked time and table size pre - cruise. This had not been a problem on previous cruises or until the first formal night on this cruise when the young hostess told (or should I say shouted at us) that the Silhouette had a different policy from all other ships in the fleet, I therefore quietly suggested that they should let headquarters know this as we had not seen this information stipulated anywhere. We did fill in an attention to detail form regards this issue and this was quickly resolved which shows that the company is willing to listen to concerns and to act on them. Michael and Ravi our two waiters were brilliant and nothing was to much trouble for them. The food was excellent. The Tuscan Grill was good value for money and worth a visit. The ocean view cafe had a wide and varied choice although some people did complain that there was not enough to choose from - I do not know how much they have to choose from at home. We had a drinks package which was good value for money. All bars were well staffed and getting served was no problem. The speakers were good and informative. Shore excursions were of good value as usual and well organised. The entertainment was very varied. The ship show productions were the worst I have seen. As for the cruise director I would say "what cruise director" as you rarely saw him unless it was late at night. The crew and officers were very visible and friendly. The Captain was out and about and spoke to every-one and was even seen giving the crew a hand with their duties. Disembarkation went smoothly. The transfer to,the airport was hassle free. On the whole I still like Celebrity and would not use any other cruise line as they do offer value for money. Read Less
