Obstructed cabins on Celebrity Silhouette

Here she is the beautiful Celebrity silhouette , as you can see all the orange lifeboats in the picture are on deck five, there are no balcony cabins on this deck, they only start on deck six. This will be exactly the same in any of the Solstice class ships, so will include Eclipse, Reflection, Solstice, Equinox, and of course Silhouette. I said in a previous post how much the same they all are , this goes for the cabins too!!

Celebrity Eclipse, deja vu

My favourite, the Martini bar !! and yes, I did have one very shortly after this pic !!

Having recently been on Silhouette for my own holiday, I was delighted to get another 5 nights on board Eclipse , just a week later !! And when I say deja vu , it was really strange as they are exactly the same, bars restaurants, lawn club, with the slight exception that the Silhouette has the cabanas and Lawn grille, the Eclipse still has the glass blowing area and no cabanas on the top deck

Rome , getting to the port !

Well back from our lovely trip on the Celebrity Silhouette (more pics to follow I promise) I wanted to start with our new experiment of using the train !

We started with an over night stay @ the Champagne palace , this is around 500 metres away from termini station, now that sounds close, which it is, not understanding before hand how cobbled the streets are in Rome, so the suitcases did not like this too much, but it was okay, not for anyone with any type of walking difficulties.

All aboard Celebrity Again !

Well if modern technology works this blog should be appearing on 05/10/2017 while I am on board Celebrity Silhouette heading down to Israel and the Greek Islands, setting off from Rome on Friday , we are staying the night before and for the first time will be using the train to get to the port, transfers in Rome are so expensive , and while it is a fair distance i am getting to Heathrow from Coventry for £75 each way , they want £110 in Rome !! so we have booked 1st class tickets for €30 return for BOTH of us. I dare say the 1st class is just a quiet carriage, not expecting lay flat beds ..lol

Booking with an Agent, or go it alone

After the recent tragic events in the Caribbean , which has no blame to lay anywhere apart from mother nature, the question of wether to book with an agent springs to mind. Cruise.co.uk had many passengers over in the Caribbean and we are happy to say they were all looked after , our sales support team worked tirelessly as did many of the consultants, getting hotel/transfers arranged , new flights booked, some people had to fly into different UK airports, and we still got them home.
