So carrying on from ‘Marcias Cruise & Travel’ blog ‘Good things come in X’s’, I’m here to report back from our day visit on board Celebrity Silhouette yesterday:
Having never been on a Celebrity Cruise ship before, I was feeling excited and eager to have a good look around….
Arriving at Liverpool Port we waited for passengers to disembark for the day. Walking down to the ship whilst singing along to the Beatles being played via outdoor speakers. We patiently waited, whilst watching staff tidy up the exterior of the ship with touches of white paint.
We made our way upto the sky observation lounge (deck 14), which was bright, airy and with the floor to ceiling windows looked out over the River Mersey. Good size bar, quirky seating areas and big tv screens. I could see myself chilling in here of an evening and didn’t want to leave
Next stop the Lawn Club (deck 15), larger than on the Celebrity Eclipse and features the Lawn Club Grill and Sunset Bar. Was impressed with the cabanas and hammocks. Ideal to relax whilst having a day at sea play boules, croquet or practice your hand at golf. I can imagine this being a very popular area and cabanas are limited so my advise – pre book
Down to deck 5 and stepping out of the lifts, greeted by the smell of fresh muffins, cakes and coffee. Café Al Bacio was a busy hot spot for passengers. *This is payable as extra unless you have pre purchased one of their drinks packages.
We didn’t get to look at any of the cabins due to the sailing being fully booked
Still on deck 5 we headed to the speciality restaurants:
Qsine – lovely intimate interior with splashes of orange, quirky dining designed for the British passenger in mind. Ideal for a special occasion and a group celebration. I did get to sample some of the sushi on offer and how they present the food to passengers. Got the 5* stamp of approval from me
Blu – Exclusive to Aqua class cabins, crisp white and blue interior (very modern) good mix of table sizes with a relaxed atmosphere
Murano – Dark wood and soft furnishings give the restaurant a very elegant touch. Lovely intimate dining venue
Spa area was bright and inviting with divine aromas around every corner turned. A great selection of treatments on offer. Really good size gym with everything you would expect
Dining was a pleasant surprise in Tuscan Grille – We experienced a 2 course meal which was heavenly
All in all I couldn’t find fault with the any of the restaurants – top notch
The ship in general was kept to a very high standard, the staff were welcoming and helpful and I look forward to booking my next cruise with Celebrity Cruises
