This was our second year in a row on the Equinox. The year before we sailed on the Silhouette, which is nearly identical. Boarding and disembarking was very quick and painless. The ship is immaculate and well-tended, and the cruise line's ... Read more

This was a very disappointing cruise. The itinerary was great and we enjoyed the Ports very much. The Panama Canal was amazing, but oh dear Celebrity Cruises are dropping their standards. We first cruised with them in 2009 and since ... Read more

I agree with the previous critics that Celebrity is declining and mostly in its daily operation. The entertainment was first class and activities were fine, except for the one magician and scheduling of the enrichment talks. My main ... Read more

We booked this cruise as our honeymoon before we even decided when we were getting married. We had a lot of expectations and concerns with this cruise. Mostly, this would be the longest cruise either of us have been on and knowing that, ... Read more

While we have sailed with Celebrity Cruise Lines several times, this was the first cruise on the Infinity and what a disappointment. The service on the ship was far below Celebrity expectations. The ship is older as is not being kept up ... Read more

Before the cruise we stayed 2 nights in San Diego and after the cruise 2 nights in Miami. Enough time to explore the cities and no hurry to get to the ship and back home immediately after the cruise. Both ports are easy to reach from the ... Read more

This was my second trip with Infinity and was very disappointed not only with the service but with the ship's overall outlook/amenities. Let's start with the internet service package offered on board. IT is is HIGHSEA ROBBERY. What is not ... Read more

I think the other reviews have pretty much said it all. The ship is older and is starting to show its age. As one walks through the ship one can hear creaking and groaning of the ship, in addition during the last part of the cruise the ... Read more

DH and I booked this trip over 1 1/2 years earlier and were very much looking to check the Panama Canal off of our bucket list of places to visit. We were not disappointed at all. This truly was a trip of a lifetime. The ship was ... Read more

This was an 18 night cruise from San Francisco through the Panama Canal and ending Ft. Lauderdale. The infinity needs a little work in Concierge class as there was some rust on the balcony and the carpet outside needed to be repaired. ... Read more

This ship is in need of a complete overhaul, it is getting a little tattered and looking old. Shore excursions were not up to snuff, too much political discussions by the guides. When will the cruise lines quit taking bribes from ... Read more
