Deck-by-Deck Breakdown of the Best and Worst Cabins onboard the Celebrity Silhouette

Deck 3 -- Plaza Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Many cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Several cabins on Deck 3 of the Celebrity Silhouette are under Deck 4 venues that include a night club and a casino. For the most part, we do not recommend many of these staterooms for those who desire quiet accommodations late at night. 

  • Ocean View Staterooms 3101, 3103, 3102, and 3104 are larger than average and are wheelchair accessible. It should be noted that 3101 and 3103 are beneath public bathrooms aft and port side of the Silhouette Theater. Noise, such as water in the pipes when these bathrooms are busy, could be problematic.
  • Port side, 3105- 3125 are beneath Quasar. Noise from this night club could be an issue late at night.
  • Starboard, 3108- 3128 are beneath the Celebrity Central. Because this venue offers late night entertainment, the staterooms are not recommended for light sleepers.
  • On the Silhouette Deck 3, starboard exterior cabins 3130-3174 and interior cabins 3144-3172 are most directly under the casino, and after hours noise could be a concern. If you are light sleeper, we recommend a cabin on a higher deck.
  • Starboard exterior staterooms 3131-3159 are probably the only cabins on Plaza Deck of the Silhouette that will not have extraneous noise factors.
  • Some of the worst cabins onboard the Celebrity Silhouette are on the Plaza Deck. While we are not suggesting the cabins on this deck should be completely avoided, there are staterooms on other decks that will be quieter.

Deck 6 -- Continental Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Warning ***
Some cabins on this deck with potential problems.

Along this entire deck, you should be aware that the Entertainment Deck of the Celebrity Silhouette is right beneath your cabin. That said, it should also be noted that most of the venues, such as the boutiques, art gallery, and the restaurants, are not open into the wee hours so it is possible to find a little peace and quiet.

  • Port side, 6105- 6156 and starboard cabins 6106- 6146 are over the Silhouette Theater. Noise during rehearsals and performances could be an issue in any of these staterooms.
  • All 2C and 2D Veranda Staterooms on the Continental Deck have partially obstructed views. For both categories, the view looking down from the verandahs will be obstructed. For 2C cabins, the horizon view from the verandahs will be partially obstructed.
  • The davits or cranes for the lifeboats partially obstruct verandah views for 6145, 6153, 6146, ans 6154.
  • Deluxe Veranda Staterooms 6135, 6137, 6139, and 6141 are a bit larger and are wheelchair accessible on Deck 6 of the Silhouette.
  • Past guests in cabin 6187 indicate that the smell of cigarette smoke does waft up to the balcony and can be smelled in this stateroom if the doors to the veranda are left open. This smoke emanates from a smoking area on Deck 5.
  • Aft, the largest accommodations on the Celebrity Silhouette Continental Deck are Sky Suites 6307 and 6306. These suites have 300 sq. ft. of interior space and 79 sq. ft. balconies. Both suites also are wonderfully situated for magnificent views of the ocean!
  • We also recommend Sunset Veranda Staterooms 63096308 which are situated between the Sky Suites aft on the Silhouette's Deck 6. These will also have a great (and less breezy) ocean view.

Deck 7 -- Sunrise Deck

Generally in keeping with cruise ship tradition, the higher deck numbers boast higher quality cabins. This begins to happen on Sunrise Deck of the Celebrity Silhouette. Deck 7 introduces Family Ocean View Staterooms, and has the Sky Suites and Sunset Veranda Staterooms as well. Also, cabins above and beneath this deck provide a buffer from the noises public areas can generate, thus making this one of the quieter locations for staterooms.

  • Forward, Family Staterooms 7107 and 7108 boast up to 575 sq. ft. of interior space and have 53 sq. ft. balconies. However, given their forward location on Deck 7 of the Silhouette, be prepared for a rather windy view (unless there's a tailwind). Family cabins are in in short-supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so, it is best to book early to get a Family cabin.
  • Ocean View Staterooms 7139, 7143, and 7145 are larger than usual and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Guests report that 7170 is in a nice, quiet location.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 7309 and 7358 have the best views and certainly the largest balconies on Deck 7 of the Silhouette.
  • Between the Sky Suites aft on the Silhouette's Deck 7, Sunset Veranda Staterooms 7311-7360 also boast great (and less breezy) aft views of the ocean. Past guests of 7317 indicate that this is a great cabin- the balcony was an excellent size and it afforded wonderful views, the cabin was spacious, there was ample storage, and the bath tub/shower was large.

Deck 8 -- Vista Deck

On the Celebrity Silhouette, Vista Deck features accommodations most similar in location and quality to Deck 7. Again, this will be a quieter deck because cabins above and beneath create a buffer from public areas.

  • Ocean View Staterooms 8259-8277 and 8232-8250 are midship Deluxe Ocean View Staterooms with Verandas on Deck 8 of the Silhouette.
  • Forward, Family Veranda Staterooms 8107 and 8108 are very spacious. There will most likely be a bit of a breeze from their balconies because of their location. As mentioned, family cabins are in in short-supply and are very popular given their attractive sleeping arrangements. They sell out very quickly, so, it is best to book early to get a Family cabin.
  • Aft on the Silhouette's Deck 8, Exterior cabins 8343 and 8334 are slightly larger than standard and have larger balconies.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 8347 and 8340 are spacious, feature over-sized balconies, and afford great views of the ocean on Deck 8 of the Silhouette.
  • Sunset Verandas 8349-8342 are situated between the Sky Suites and have a great aft view of the ocean.

Deck 9 -- Panorama Deck

Panorama Deck of the Celebrity Silhouette features Concierge Class accommodations which include priority check in, an expanded room service menu, evening hors d'oeuvres everyday, as well as other amenities. Again, Deck 9 staterooms have cabins above and beneath which buffer noise from public areas.

  • Inside cabins 9196, 9202, and 9206 are wheelchair accessible on the Silhouette Deck 9.
  • Aft, exterior cabins 9297 and 9370 do have slightly larger balconies than standard.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 9301 and 9376 are the most spacious on the Silhouette Deck 9, have the largest balconies, and have a great view of the ocean.
  • Concierge Class Veranda Staterooms 9303-9378 are between the Sky Suites on Deck 9 of the Silhouette, and have a great aft view of the ocean!

Deck 10 -- Sky Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

While Sky Deck is one deck beneath the ultimate luxury area on the Celebrity Silhouette, this deck features Royal Suites, Celebrity Suites, Sky Suites, and Concierge class accommodations. The fact that there are cabins above and beneath you on Sky Deck makes this among the quieter locations for a stateroom or suite on the Silhouette.

  • The four Royal Suites, 1239, 1241, 1116, and 1118 are the most spacious accommodations on Deck 10 of the Silhouette. Each has 590 sq. ft. of interior space and a 158 sq. ft. balcony.
  • There are six Celebrity Suites on Sky Deck (1110, 1112, 1114, 1233, 1235, and 1237). Each Celebrity space has 395 sq. ft. interior space and an 104 sq. ft. balcony.
  • Forward on the Celebrity Silhouette Deck 10, Concierge Veranda Staterooms 1022, 1024, 1026, and 1028 are a bit larger, have more spacious balconies, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • Aft, Sky Suites 1405 and 1212 are spacious (300 sq. ft.), have large balconies, and afford great views of the ocean.
  • Eight Concierge Class Veranda Staterooms (1407-1204) located between the Sky Suites on the Silhouette's Deck 10 have wonderful (and less breezy) ocean views.

Deck 11 -- Penthouse Deck

***CruiseAdvice.org Favorite Deck ***
Highly rated by our cruise experts!

The Penthouse Deck is arguably the high-rent district of the ship. The best cabins onboard the Celebrity Silhouette are generally onboard the Penthouse Deck. This is where all the suites and penthouse category cabins are located. Given that this is where the high-dollar cabins are, this is also where the Celebrity Silhouette's best cabin stewards are usually assigned.

  • While the Penthouse Deck on the Silhouette does feature the best accommodations to be had, luxury minded travelers need to be aware of the pool areas directly above some of cabins on this deck. AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1547-1605 and 1552-1610 are in this general vicinity, and there could be some extraneous noise after hours, such as the scraping of deck chairs when staff are cleaning. If you are looking for AquClass accommodations and amenities (which include priority seating at the Blu Restaurant), you may want to look elsewhere on this deck.
  • Forward, AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1501-1545 and 1502-1550 are closest to the Relaxation Lounge and are directly under the Spa facilities. These staterooms are not under the pool areas and could be a great place to reserve an AquaClass stateroom.
  • The 5 interior cabins (1528-1536) are located more forward on the Silhouette Deck 11, and are likely to be among the nicer places for an inside cabin on this ship.
  • Forward on Deck 11 of the Silhouette, AquaClass Veranda Staterooms 1522, 1524, 1526, and 1538 are a slightly more spacious with larger balconies, and are wheelchair accessible.
  • The Penthouse Suites (1611 and 1616) have the most room (1291 s. ft.) and largest balconies (385 sq. ft.) on the Celebrity Silhouette's Deck 11.
  • The Penthouse Deck also has four Royal Suites (1607, 1609, 1612, and 1614) just forward of the Penthouse Suites, each of which as 590 sq. ft. of interior space and a 158 sq. ft. balcony.
  • Just aft of the Penthouse Suites, there are six Celebrity Suites (1615, 1617, 1619, 1618, 1620, and 1622).
  • On the Silhouette's Deck 11, AquaClass Veranda Staterooms and Concierge Veranda Staterooms (1621-1663 and 1624-1666) are situated in a quieter area, away from possible pool noise from above.
  • Aft on Deck 11 of the Silhouette, four Sky Suites (1665, 1667, 1669, and 1668) have larger balconies than standard and a wonderful ocean view!
  • Five Concierge Veranda Staterooms (1673-1670) are tucked between the Sky Suites, and will also have beautiful aft ocean views.

Deck 12 -- Resort Deck

Resort Deck staterooms and suites are also luxurious, although not as spacious as the Penthouse, Royal, and Celebrity Suites. However, cabins here might have some noise issues from the cafe and bar directly above.

  • On the Silhouette's Deck 12, Concierge Veranda Staterooms 2101 and 2102 are next to public bathrooms and this could be an additional noise issue. We suggest locating farther aft to avoid this potential concern.
  • Concierge Veranda Staterooms and Sky Suites (2115-2151 and 2114-2146) are situated just below the cafe, so there could be noise in the morning before and after 7:30am as staff prepare for the breakfast crowd, and this might be disturbing to travelers who like to sleep in. Because the cafe serves meals and snacks through the day, there could be noise from the diners as well as from staff clean-up after closing.
  • Sky Suites 2130, 2132, 2134, and 2136 are wheelchair accessible on Deck 12 of the Silhouette.
  • Aft on Deck 12 of the Silhouette, Sky Suites 2153, 2155, 2157, 2152, 2150, and 2148 have great aft ocean views. However, these suites are underneath the bar so there could be after hours noise issues.
  • Two Concierge Veranda Staterooms, 2159 and 2154, are situated between the aft Sky Suites. These staterooms have a great view of the ocean, but may share the same noise concerns from the bar directly above.
