  -summary: "When one thinks of a cruise experience, what are the first things that spring to mind? The delicious food and drink? The destinations on your exciting itinerary? The duty-free shopping on board? All of these factor highly on the check-list of things that guests look forward to most on a cruise – but often we fail to take notice of the vast collection of public areas on offer."

    <p>I was lucky enough to join <em><a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/celebrity-cruises/celebrity-silhouette" target="_blank">Celebrity Silhouette</a> </em>on her first call into <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-destinations/europe/british-isles-and-northern-europe/cruises-from-southampton" target="_blank">Southampton</a> for her maiden season home-porting from the UK. This two night mini-cruise sailed the Channel to arrive in Le Havre where, unfortunately, the weather wasn&rsquo;t ideal for sightseeing, however this did provide me with ample time to explore the ship at leisure.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Public spaces on a ship are often overshadowed by other areas of a cruise ship which tend to &lsquo;stand out&rsquo; more, namely the dining areas, bars and swimming areas. Whilst all of these were exceptional on board <em>Celebrity Silhouette</em>, it&rsquo;s important to take the time to notice other features on board and recognise them for, where <a href="https://www.rolcruise.co.uk/cruise-lines/celebrity-cruises" target="_blank">Celebrity Cruises</a> are concerned, the modern-luxury design and ambience that they exude.</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <h2>The Library</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Sensational and grand, yet unimposing</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>My first glimpse of the library came when I was in the glass lift en route to the Grand Cuvee Dining Room for dinner. As a book-lover, I was delighted to see the endless reams of books set in far-reaching wooden bookcases and it was all I could do to not press my face against the glass as we whizzed past. That evening, I ensured that I made time to visit the library when it was mostly empty. As I wandered, I was struck by the d&eacute;cor &ndash; gloriously comfortable wing-backed chairs, lamps emitting a low light and a dark wooden coffee table all emanated a study-vibe, as if you were in the library of a luxury country club. Not only this, but a tasteful sculpture adorned the wall between the bookshelves, striking the balance between innovative and traditional design.</p><h2>The Lawn Club</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Innovative and functional, yet contemporary in design</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Sadly, the weather rather restricted my access to the Lawn Club &ndash; but I can tell you that what I did see impressed me. Located on the top deck, you are first welcomed to the Lawn Club Grill &ndash; a restaurant hosting the finest grill dishes with all the fun of a classic BBQ. Once you&rsquo;ve marvelled at the fantastic design of the Grill itself, you should then turn your attention to The Lawn Club. Offering a lawn of real grass, the first and only at sea, The Lawn Club is the place to be on a summer&rsquo;s day on board <em>Celebrity Silhouette</em>. Including comfortable decking-like seating, giant garden chairs, bright colours and plenty of nooks to explore, The Lawn Club is a functional space, made stimulating.</p><h2>The Hideaway</h2>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>Modern and streamlined, yet fun</p>\r\n
    \r\n
    <p>The Hideaway, reminiscent of childhood treehouses, injects an element of fun into <em>Celebrity Silhouette</em>&rsquo;s design. Located on Deck 7, I was thrilled to come across four pods and two tree-house-like egg seats, split across two levels. Decorated in muted browns and greens, this beautiful area of the ship provides a quiet and serene space to relax and chat in, or to recline in a pod with a good book. Perhaps one of the most modern-in-design areas of <em>Celebrity Silhouette</em>, I wasn&rsquo;t surprised that whenever I was near The Hideaway, it was buzzing with an excited energy as guests enjoyed the surroundings.</p>
