Celebrity Silhouette Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The fourth ship in Celebrity’s Solstice-class, Celebrity Silhouette was launched in 2011 with all the premium features previously introduced by the cruise line and more, including cabanas on The Lawn Club and an adjacent outdoor Lawn Club Grill restaurant. The line’s signature Michael’s Club offers up to 50 international beers. Celebrity Silhouette sails the Mediterranean and through the Greek Isles in summer months from either her Rome (Civitivecchia) or Venice home ports on 11- and 12-night voyages and then heads to her winter homeport of Fort Lauderdale to offer weekly Western Caribbean cruises.
Solstice-class ships are the largest in the Celebrity fleet. While the ships are contemporary in design—even a bit edgy for Celebrity—the line included enough spaces with old-world ambience to satisfy traditionalists. The atmosphere is not unlike a hip boutique hotel yet filled with grand spaces, as well as intimate nooks and crannies. Celebrity Reflection adds an additional deck for more high-end suite accommodations.
The Lawn Club, a half acre of real grass on deck 15, is where you can play genteel games of croquet, practice golf putting, indulge in lawn games and picnics, or simply take barefoot strolls. In a nearby open-air "theater" on Solstice, Eclipse, and Equinox, artisans demonstrate glassmaking in the Hot Glass Show. A similar space on Silhouette and Reflection houses an outdoor grill restaurant, and those ships also have private cabanas in the Lawn Club (for a fee). These ships have a lot to offer families, with a family pool and the most extensive children's facilities in the Celebrity fleet.
