Default Silhouette 2/9 - /216

Silhouette off Grand Cayman

Got back Sunday from a great cruise on Silhouette!!! It was our first cruise on Celebrity. The ship was beautiful! The weather could not have been better!!! I am now a two cruise line person. RCCI & Celebrity.

Having a cocktail on the Sunset Deck. Leaving Labadee

There was only a couple of things that fell short. The ship was dead after 11 P.M. The disco/dance club Quasar was real disappointment! While they stayed open late the DJ played music that did not cater to the people who were on the ship. Classic rock, pop, reggae or 80's music would have worked a lot better than the modern dance/techno. The club was almost always empty. The one night we went to the club they held a New Years Eve party. After midnight there was hardly anyone in the club. We requested several songs like "Could you be loved" and what few people were there got up and danced. As soon as the song was over the format return to drum machine driven crap. Another comlaint would be the mundane and repetitive music they played at the bars.

Quasar empty on the last night of the cruise...

I was disappointed with the lawn area. Maybe I just don't get it? To me it was a novelty that took up a lot of space. Much of the grass was dead and areas were roped off for repairs. I think another pool area may have been a better choice as the two main pool were always crowded. But that's just me.

Ensemble Lounge featured a jazz band called South Central from Argentina. They were excellent! Our other favorite bar was the Martini Bar. It was always open later and featured an ice bar.

At port in Labadee

The food was excellent! My girlfiend is Gluten Free and while he was not pampered the same way she was on Oasis she always had plenty of options. The AquaSpa Cafe located in the Solarium offered lots of healthy and gluten free options for breakfast and lunch. We ate dinner at the Grand Cuvee Restaurant (main dinning room) every night and never felt the need to hit one of the specialty restaurants. We snacked often at the Oceanview Cafe the buffet. Lot's of options. Great salad bar and dessert bar!

At port in Cozumel

We have been to Grand Cayman & Cozumel before so we were really looking forward to Jamaica and Labadee. Both these countries were beautiful!!! In Jamaica we did the Tubing/Dunns River Falls excursion offer by the Celebrity. We loved both parts! My only complaint would be that Dunns River Falls was a little crowded but I guess that's to be expected.

Labadee was beautiful. Many people who were returning said that they have expanded and it's a lot nicer than it was years ago.

Nellie's Beach

A must see on Silhouette is the Sin City Comedy. The stand-up comedians were really funny! But it's for adults!

Mike Pace was hilarious!!!

Leaving Labadee

It was a great vacation and I look forward to crusing on RCCL and Celebrity again!!! I would sail on Silhouette again in a heartbeat!
