How many times have you seen the “pink ladies” getting on board the famous 2 night party cruises, originally called taster cruises, well I can tell you from having been on many of them , plenty of times !! Otherwise its Wendy 50th , Betty’s 30th we can go on and on.
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!!
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
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.
