Also a RiL fan. Used them in October for post-cruise transfer and highlights tour. Since we were staying on in Rome we booked Rome by Night and Hidden Rome. 5* all the way. Same driver each time -...

Project Gal, the views on noise were and continue to be mixed from a variety of people here. My inquiries were more of a sea day project and did nothing to "ruin" my first cruise. Thanks to these...

The doors really exist and are working for the moment. Thanks to the persistence of Silhouette's excellent CC manager Vanessa, the chief electrical engineer turned on some magic switch and the doors,...

Also, another vote for GTI. Plus, for a very few dollars more, we restricted our group size to eight to make private group and had a more intimate experience with the opportunity to customize the...

Latest update.
My Concierge initially denied the existence of the doors. Then ta-da, I walked her six-feet from her desk and we manually closed the "automatic" doors. She was amazed at this...

I really resent being lied to by Customer Relations (there are no sliding doors) or given sketchy answers (we'll close them if you find it noisy on your next cruise). Any suggestions about who to...

Hi Holly
Yes, we did too on Grandeur. They were fire doors though and it did make a big difference to close them. But the S class has automatic glass doors like a grocery store - at least when...

Update: I finally met a very pleasant customer service individual who admitted the legendary doors do exist! She had no idea why they are usually left open but said they are closed if there are...

I've walked by your cabin and heard lots of noise in the hallway so I can believe you heard it inside as well. I'll repeat again...the sliding doors on Silhouette (which I believe exist based on my...

I'm on your cruise Wiltonian...hope you're having a good time and glad to hear you're enjoying your location :)
The odd thing about the doors (I checked decks 7 and 10) is that they are there. If I...

Thanks! I'm on the ship now as you know. I can actually see what I assume are the doors and tracks you describe but they are kept open day and night. Nothing slides open or shuts.

We're currently on deck 10 and no sliding doors near the library or anywhere. In fact the library is wide open to elevator and lobby noise. I pity the poor souls trying to read there at night with...

No need for apologies Phil. It was a Caribbean cruise and was a very long time ago - lots of cruises under our belts since then :)We met at at the CC party and sat at adjacent tables in the MDR. -...

Thanks Phil. No glass doors here but my sonophobia is under control. BTW, we sailed on the same Connie cruise 10 years ago...I never forget a name especially when it's the same as mine LOL.

Thanks everyone. Reassuring to hear that noise...
Thanks everyone. Reassuring to hear that noise won't be an issue. It is strange that some S-class ships have sliding glass doors but not Silhouette. When I asked at the front desk today they had...
Thanks and good to hear the feedback. I'm on...
Thanks and good to hear the feedback. I'm on Silhouette now but moving cabins for our b2b. No sliding doors, just fire doors on decks 7-10. Noise in corridor seemed loud from the band in the lobby...
Noise from central entertainment areas in hump cabins?
I was reading the S-class reviews which is a very handy feature. Many refer to how quiet the hump cabins such as
7260-7286 or 7217-7243 are because noise from the central lobby area is blocked by...

Thanks Keith. First time there for us and really looking forward to it. - Phil
Thanks to you both. I'm concluding from your...
Thanks to you both. I'm concluding from your comments that Israel has a well established system and we'll probably have immigration clearance on one of our two sea days before arrival. As Keith...
Port formalities in Ashdod and Haifa?
We'll be visiting Israel with Celebrity next month - two nights docked at Ashdod and one at Haifa. What's the process for passing through immigration, customs and security before meeting our...

I dont see any discounts but the 4 or 5 night price is pretty good. On Silhouette, will I get my choice of Q-sine, Murano's, Sushi on Five, Lawn Club Grill, Murano's and Tuscan? And can I repeat a...

Thanks all for the advice. I will check the cruise planner. We have Celebrity and TA OBC (which I know you can't use in advance).
I guess the real pain is having to have the first meal on nights 1...
Pre-purchase Specialty Dining or Buy Onboard?
We'll be onboard Silhouette next month and plan to have some meals in the specialty restaurants. The four-meal package on the website looks good but we've also purchased packages on Day 1 onboard,...

Just to close the storyline here: my TA switched our Classic package to the other official perk, $300 OBC, so we will purchase the Premium non-alcoholic package with that. Does anyone know if they...

Thanks...we'll definitely try but some people seem to be refused. Did your husband go to customer service to make the change?
