Celebrity Silhouette

A big thank you to Celebrity Cruises, who invited me and Dr W on the inaugural sailing of their new Solstice class ship, Silhouette. We spent the weekend swanking around the Mediterranean, drinking far too much champagne, soaking up the sun and nibbling on canap├ęs.

I’ve got a few hundred pictures to edit, fifteen twinkly decks and a whole weekend’s overeating to write about. While I’m busying myself about that, you might like to whet your appetites for the post I’ll be putting up later in the week with some photos.

  • I hope one day all menus are on an iPad.
    It might also make up for slow service if you can play games whilst you wait ;)

    The best bit was the cocktail menu, which showed you the proportions of each ingredient, let you swipe them into a virtual shaker, and then had you shake the iPad around to mix!

    I love the giant chair: you both look so happy in it! Over-sized garden furniture will do that to a person…
