  1. Following and enjoying your review so far. We were on the same cruise as you and saw you at the Retreat sundeck but weren’t introduced. We were on the back to back with the Feb. 14th sailing and had a wonderful 21 days on the Silhouette. What a different world we came home to. My husband and I are both fine and have been staying home since we returned. I'm looking forward to reading your cruise review installments. Stay well!
  2. Yes, those storage cabinets over the bed are still there in Aqua.
  3. Currently on Silhouette sailing to Aruba. We are in Aqua and we have 2 chairs with footstools and a very small table. Ship looks great, although no dramatic changes. The new space where Cellar Masters used to be is a very nice sports bar. The Sunset Bar area is really beautiful, with tons of comfortable seating. The indoor pool area has new gray pads on the chairs. New carpets throughout ship. Blu looks the same, as do the specialty restaurants. Tonight we’re dining in Murano. We are staying on the ship for the next cruise, switching to a Sky suite. Can’t wait to check out the Retreat and the Retreat sun deck.
  4. Thanks so much for the good wishes! We’re almost all packed and ready to go. We arrive in Rome on Tuesday, my birthday, and are staying in the Pantheon area. It’s a great location to walk everywhere from there. The added bonus is a beautiful weather forecast! It’s been two years since we were on Serenity, so it will be nice to see the updates to the ship. It will be wonderful to be back in Israel, and also see the Greek Isles for the first time.
  5. I’m thoroughly enjoying your trip narrative! So much fun to read while we anticipate our Silhouette cruise in 4 weeks. Thanks so much for providing us with such a detailed trip report. By the way, you have a beautiful family!
  6. Happy, healthy New Year, Keith and Anne Marie! I look forward to your blog posts and updates each day on Cruise Critic, while anticipating our Serenity Med cruise in October. I know what you mean about something that is just right. Crystal cruises have been very enjoyable for us for many reasons. Ship size, wonderful food and service, and great itineraries. We also love sailing on Celebrity ships in February every year, usually in a suite, cruising in the Caribbean. Then we don’t care so much about the itinerary, since we just like to get out of the cold weather and relax. Works for us. Regards...Sandy
  7. The last few days I can’t sign in to the Celebrity website on my iPad. The front page comes up. I can see the ships and booking info for new reservations, but can’t access my account. As soon as I hit the sign in button the screen goes black. Anyone else having this issue?
  8. Hi, Keith, We're very excited to have booked this Serenity cruise: Oct 10 (OCY 191010-13) Rome to Athens — Sandyknits (Sandy and Roy) Thanks!
  9. Does anyone know if the Silhouette will use the new terminal in Ft Lauderdale? We are sailing in February and would love to board the ship at the new terminal.
