Celebrity cruises have been our favourite line for over twenty years and we have been privileged to sail on her many ships Our recent experience on the Celebrity Silhouette in September 2018 was to say the least disappointing Although the facilitys on board we excellent as in previous times the cutbacks that were in place were very noticeable The shows in the theatre were mediocre to say the least Productions we had previously watched were again churned out Tbe guest performers were of poor quality and many guests walked out of the theatre We had anytime dining as we like the flexibility offers Celebrity was renowned for her cuisine andup to this cruise we had been delighted with the food and the choices This time the food inthe maindining room was only average with poor choices and on numerous occasions presented Luke warm at best The service at table was definitely not as in previous times and the attention to detail was lacking most of the time The buffet food at night was far superior As older passengers we chose to dine in the main di ing room as we preferred to be served but found it had deteriorated enormously Celebrity are trying very hard to generate extra income from its guests by charging extra for as much as they can Gone are the days where the ship would put curtesy buses to get into the port Tbey now charge at least 10$ to use this facility these days One realises that Celebritys new ships need to be paid for but at the expense of its loyal passengers There used to be themed buffets at least once during the cruise Dress code now is non existent and we used to enjoy formal nights and the atmosphere was always superbCelebrity seems to have lost the plot and has become another mediocre cruise line We were most disappointed and May now consider another line within similar pricing
