I am so excited that there will be cruisers in the Silhouette in a few days.  We will be cruising in March.   I am hoping there will be many posts, reviews and pictures.  
safe travels

I will be interested to read all the opinions too. Most of all I hope they have reinstated footstools in Concierge Class.

We will be sailing in Concierge Class for the first time. We booked when Concierge was being sold at the same price as balcony, so decided to go for it. We also got a one category upgrade, as we are Elite, C2 with a larger balcony, so I’m hoping for a footstool.

Can you ask the Concierge for one if it’s not on the balcony?

Like you I will be in a C2 with an oversized angled balcony. I like to book Concierge as one of the best benefits was the footstools, so lovely for relaxing on the balcony. There was a thread on this forum last year, after the Equinox re-fit, when a passenger informed us that the balcony furniture had been 'upgraded' . The table had been swopped out for a much smaller one that was no longer suitable for using to eat a meal at. And the Concierge footstools were no more 😞 They said the Head of Housekeeping on Equinox had so much bad feedback that he was in the process of getting the stools re-instated but it would be 2 months before they were available. Nothing was posted after that to say if it ever happened.

 

Hopefully they will keep the stools after the Silhouette re-fit, but it is a bit worrying as footstools are no longer listed under Concierge Stateroom features. If they are not there I do not expect your Concierge will be able to locate any for you.

The footstools on the balcony were a benefit attached to Concierge Class. Once you have had them it is hard to do without if you like to relax with your feet up.

We’re in Fort Lauderdale now awaiting the arrival of the Silhouette for this Friday’s sailing.

Seems strange to look at the harbor with no cruise ships present. At the Renaissance, with a corner room(not a cabin) that overlooks the 17th Street bridge and the entrance to the port. Will take some pictures when she arrives.

We are trying to decide if we should do the Italian steakhouse on Friday.  
are you doing any pre-reservations???  Is it a good thing to do?

We are sailing on her in May, any photos would be great. We are in concierge for the first time usually have aqua or mini suite but wasn’t too impressed with blu on our last few cruises.

If you are at the Renaissance on 17th, try the Boatyard which is at the far end if the parking lot in front of the hotel.  Great food and ambiance.   Been there several times and at least once every time we cruise from Ft Lauderdale

Howdy... if you have an Internet package onboard, can you please come back and give us some real-time updates?

 

Thanks in advance!  Smooth Sailing!
