1-10 of 169 Europe - Western Mediterranean Celebrity Silhouette Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise Reviews
As a retired London travel agent I researched this cruise ship and knew the food would be very good. We booked 6.30 pm in Main Dining Room. Only went for first night as awful.
Requested table for two for 50th anniversary. Put on table for six but with just four people on it. The noise from our floor and the one immediately above which was a sort of mezzanine floor was appalling. The ...
From start to finish the process of booking our cruise was great.
This was our first cruise and so I didnt know what to expect.
Prior to the crusie date my husband booked a VIP package online which included internet, Priority Embarkation and disembarkation (cases off first) inside tours, wine and food pairing, laundry amongst other things.
Unfotunately this package (Just under $500) didnt ...
4 stars again for the cruise.
Staff give excellent service and for us the S class is about the right size. We have not rated fitness or excursions as we do not use them. Our cruises are all about enjoying the ship and meeting people.
Check in is excellent. We park on the dockside and typically take around 25 minutes from the car to being on the ship with a welcome drink.
Azores was ...
My wife and I have just returned from a relaxing 10 day cruise aboard the Silhouette, we are maiden cruisers with Celebrity, having previously cruised with Princess and Cunard and this was our first cruise without our daughter, who we packed off to University only 4 days beforehand.
Embarkation in Southampton was very smooth and relaxing as we choose to spend the night before in a hotel to save ...
This is our second cruise with Celebrity. and certainly not the last.
We got an "upgrade" , which we didn't want (a better category, but a worse location, so there were some problems on our first day, until we got our original room back.
They did give us a free meal in Moreno as a compensation (which was amazing) for being homeless until almost 7pm.
The service was great everywhere, and ...
We chose this cruise for the itinerary as we had cruised in the Mediterranean previously and wanted to see somewhere different. We stayed in the Blue Keys Hotel in Southampton which was really lovely, we had an excellent meal there. I would recommend as it approximately 10 minutes from the port. Embarkation went very smoothly, no queueing. While the ship was lovely there was less to do on board ...
Food was inconsistent
We had cold rib eye steaks
Tough/ undercooked duck
Semi frozen French toast
Been on the Celebrity Eclipse many times.
Never had a problem.
Also drinks package "classic" would not let us have sparkling water only Soda water
In the bar a double Henessy brandy no problem.
Staff generally were brilliant let down by poor chef.
I have travelled Celebrity many times but never have I experienced so much noise.
the cabin we were allocated was concierge class cabin 2145 it has a restricted view although a premium price is being charged. the noise from the above main café is unbearable day and night 24hours a day, when complaining to the front desk manager a derisory offer of compensation for a completely ruined holiday. ...
This was our third cruise on Silhouette and took us to the Azores Madieira Tenerife and Lisbon.We thought the food and service were excellent. Our main grumble is the same as previous reviews in that there are too many passengers on board when the ship is not in sunny climates. On the way to the Azores we had to vere a different course to what was planned due to the remnants of a Carribbean ...
We were recommended Celebrity by our TA who said once we had used them we would never go back to other cruise lines. The check in was very good and we were on board by 11am in good time for lunch, but our first impression of the ship was dull and drab. The general look was brown and beige with seating that would not look out of place in a nursing home. but I will go in more detail later.
