This cruise was sold as the "ultimate" and the ship was rated with 5 stars ! This cruise was just the worst I ever experienced. Apart from 4 constant shopping channels on the TV with a cruise director who should be fired at all, this ... Read more

We are quite surprised that Equinox is considered a "winner" for it's cabins, as this was by far the smallest, most uncomfortable cabin out of 16 cruises we've done to date! At just 8'6" wide at the widest point, minus the furniture and ... Read more

SHIP and CABIN: Although the Infinity is smaller than the Eclipse and Solstice which we'd been on, we did not really notice this except in the gym. Here, the "floor" for classes was right as you entered to get to machines. Less space for ... Read more
