Celebrity Cruise - Silhouette Ship

I, along with 7 others went on Celebrity Cruise Line's Silhouette.  The itinerary included Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Jamaica and Haiti - we left from Fort Lauderdale.

We had a great deal that included a drink package - unlimited drinks up to $8 value and/or beers up to $6.  We were very pleased to see that this included quite an array of options in that price range.  The downside is that the bar service wasn't up to par; however, I sent in a comment card to that effect and the bar manager contacted me immediately.  And we noticed a difference right away too.  I just wished I had made the comment earlier in the cruise.

The staterooms are very spacious on this ship as compared to others we've been on (most notably Norwegian).  While we have enjoyed many Norwegian cruises and a couple Carnival, this Celebrity ship far surpasses the room and sophistication of those.  (We've also cruised Royal Caribbean and Princess but it was so long ago it's not fair to make a comparison.)

The buffet food was also above par.  Great selections and great quality. The food in the dining room was excellent - but about the same as other ships.  However the escargot and lobster were the best I've ever had - possibly out of any place on ship or land.

Since we had late dinner seating we didn't end up seeing any shows.  I did frequent the casino every day - it was large with a good variety of slots.  They also had all the table games.

The wait staff in the dining room was excellent, as were our cabin stewards.

The on-ship stores carried high-quality gifts, clothes and accessories.

The photos that were taken in the dining room did not turn out very well - it didn't appear that the photographer had much experience.  In a group picture one person was way off to the side.  In another picture of a couple - one was looking to the side and not at the camera.  Just seems like things the photographer could easily have corrected before clicking.

All in all we had a great time on this cruise - would do it again in a minute.
