Celebrity Silhouette – First Impression

Celebrity Silhouette – First Impression

As we boarded the Celebrity Silhouette last week for a 7-night Caribbean cruise, the first thing we noticed was, “Wow, this is a beautiful ship!”

This was our first experience on Celebrity, and they totally exceeded our expectations.

DSC_5785Here are four things that really stood out, and this was after being onboard two full days:

1- The staff.  Well trained, knowledgeable and very friendly.

2- The “Heartbeat of the Operation” .  This free behind the scenes tour (with complimentary champagne) shows us what Celebrity is known for: amazing food. Walking through the kitchen while the chefs were preparing the day’s meals was a blast.  Don’t miss this, because most lines charge for this experience, or don’t offer it at all.

3- Qsine.  The specialty dining restaurant where an iPad is your menu.  The food was incredible and represented all parts of the world.  The unique flavors the chefs created were original and unbelievable. Not to mention the fun presentation of each dish. Who knew Doritos can compliment a sushi roll. You can see the video of that soon.

4- The Lawn Club  The only ships at sea with real grass, this is a must see thing.  Take off your shoes and walk around.  Even better if you are from up north where it’s cold!  Super soft grass. And a relaxing environment.

So far, we are blown away by how nice the ship is and the attention to detail. We are already looking forward to another Celebrity cruise in the near future.

More to come this week…
