Back onboard silhouette
Priscilla Taylor | October 19, 2023 | Celebrity Cruises | Celebrity Silhouette
Canaries Portugal and spain first time back on celebrity since 2019 some changes as expected but still very good. Stateroom on deck 6 balcony partial view but only lifeboat below we have been on this deck previously and doesn’t bother us.
Good ports of call we had been to before booked private tours in oporto and lisbon and took taxis at most other ports.
Food in main restaurant very good staff excellent. Ocean view choice food and staff all excellent. Tuscon grill was very good but lighting was so dark made it strange ambiance. Classic drinks was okay for us if we wanted drink not on it just paid difference usually only a dollar.
Entertainment some very good shows barricade boys lorraine crosby excellent. The 2 production shows strange but dancing acrobats good some of the singers. Activites staff dj and quiz master good the others not so great. Because was hot decks rammed and sun beds all full. We are not sun worshipers but feel that the retreat took too much space and the cabannas on the lawn empty and spoilt that area we had enjoyed before too many bodies on the grass.
The other bugbear was the lack of seating in bars and atrium it got annoying need more seating. On the whole we really enjoyed the cruise shame chic night not many people bothered to dress up a bit but it is what it is.
Would recommend celebrity.
