Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Southampton

No need to fly, as today you'll board Celebrity Silhouette in the UK's largest cruise port – Southampton. Settle into your stateroom, designed to maximise space and comfort – 99% of Celebrity staterooms feature a King-size bed. If you're travelling in a group, options for connecting rooms and balconies help you create the perfect space for your holiday. As the ship sails away, perhaps head to the Lawn Club, an open deck grassed area designed for taking in the fresh sea air, before sitting down to a sumptuous multi-course dinner in the Main Restaurant.

Stay: Celebrity Silhouette

Day 2
At Sea

A day at sea is the perfect time to get to know the ship. Take a stroll or even have a picnic on the grass at the Lawn Club, relax by the pool, or browse the art in the onboard gallery. The Celebrity Silhouette staff will host a variety of activities, including behind-the-scenes tours of hidden areas of the ship and workshops to learn new skills. Later this evening, enjoy a production show in the theatre or live music in one of the many bars and lounges across the ship.

Stay: Celebrity Silhouette

Day 3
La Rochelle (Bordeaux)

Today you'll arrive in La Rochelle, allowing a visit to Bordeaux. Arguably the most famous wine capital in Europe, Bordeaux is situated in the heart of the oldest major wine-producing region in France. Discover this stunning French city, deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and enjoy its unrivalled culinary scene, rich cultural heritage and breath-taking architecture.

Day 4
Bilbao

Bilbao is a city of old and new, home to the world-famous Guggenheim Museum. An architectural masterpiece, the Guggenheim's curved steel lines are now a central part of the city's aesthetic. You'll have an overnight here, offering plenty of time to discover the city on foot or add on a tour – visit the Ribera Market with a Celebrity Chef before a pintxos-making class at a local restaurant, or tour the quiet streets of Bilbao's Old Quarter and Castro Urdiales. Return to the ship for dinner, or perhaps find a local tapas bar for an authentic taste of Spain.

Stay: Celebrity Silhouette

Day 5
La Coruña

La Coruña, in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula, is the perfect destination for urban beach lovers. An optional bike tour is a great way to see a range of sweeping coastal views, while foodies might prefer to visit Market Square Lugo, the Mercado San Agustin and Restaurant Noray with a Celebrity Chef. If you prefer, explore the city on foot, perhaps pausing at the Plaza Maria Pita, the beautiful main square, for a glass of wine. Tonight, build your own pizza or enjoy a prime steak at the Lawn Club Grill.

Stay: Celebrity Silhouette

Meals: B L D

Day 6
Vigo

Today you'll visit the Galician city of Vigo, one of the world's biggest fishing ports. A walk around this city reveals remnants of an industrial era alongside the narrow passageways and hidden squares of the Old Town. Optional excursions here include panoramic drives and wine tasting experiences, mussel farming or even kayaking on the Minho River. Back on board this evening, why not visit one of the unique concept restaurants, such as Le Petit Chef™ At Qsine – an interactive animated table experience like nothing you've ever seen.

Stay: Celebrity Silhouette

Meals: B L D

Day 7
At Sea

Another sea day means time for rest and relaxation between ports of call. Visit the Fortunes Casino or browse the Shops on the Boulevard, or perhaps book a treatment in the indulgent Canyon Ranch Spa – there's even a private sauna in the Persian Garden and a Spa Café serving healthy light bites. Tonight, enjoy a drink at the Sunset Bar accompanied by the sounds of a live guitarist and a gentle sea breeze.

Stay: Celebrity Silhouette

Meals: B L D

Day 8
Le Havre (Paris)

Le Havre, at the mouth of the River Seine, is the gateway for excursions to Paris. A late sailing means plenty of time to explore the City of Light and its iconic landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées and Notre-Dame Cathedral. Plenty of add-on excursions are available here; have lunch at the Eiffel Tower, take in the sights and a multi-course meal on a unique Bustronome tour, or head out to the Palace of Versailles and the apartment of Louis XIV. Tonight, enjoy a final meal and farewell entertainment on board.

Stay: Celebrity Silhouette
