Cruise Critic reports that a unspecified propulsion problem is slowing the Celebrity Silhouette down, causing it to shorten time spent in certain port of calls.
Celebrity does not specify the nature of the problem or indicate when the problem will be fixed.
A Celebrity Cruises spokeswoman provides this gobbledygook explanation: the “slight restriction” on the ship’s top speed “is due to a portion of the propulsion system operating at less than optimal efficiency.”
The Celebrity Reflection was recently delayed in Civitavecchia due to unspecified mechanical problems. Celebrity was secret about that problem.
A Celebrity cruise ship was delayed in port was last December when the Celebrity Constellation suffered an engine problem in Key West.
Anyone know what’s the problem with the Silhouette?
