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

We have enjoyed cruises on the larger Celebrity ships and decided to do the Panama Canal cruise on the Infinity. The ship had just came out of retrofit, and should not have all the little issue that we experienced. The first issue was a ... 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

I arrived in San Francisco on the Wednesday prior to the cruise, toured the city, rode the street cars, walked the many hills. I had arranged for a tour to pick me up at my hotel (Petite Auberge) on Thursday Morning, visited Muir Woods, ... 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

We are a couple in our 50s and this was our 17th cruise (3rd on Celebrity). We love cruising and have learned to always enjoy the great parts of cruising while not letting a couple not-so-great experiences ruin a long awaited outstanding ... Read more

Loved the itinerary of cruise which is why we went with Celebrity. We did have a wonderful holiday but have a few items I feel important to pass on. The staff on the cruise ship were wonderful. However I could not help but feel for them ... Read more

We sailed this 17 night Panama Canal to San Francisco cruise, back to back with the next 11 night Alaska cruise. I'll review each cruise separately, but my overall impressions are based upon our total 28 night experience onboard the ... Read more

This was only our 4th Celebrity cruise (23 over all lines) so not as familiar with the ship classes. It so happened we had two Celebrity cruises booked, one in January of this year and again this April. Our January cruise was on the ... Read more

We boarded the Infinity in Ft. Lauderdale on April 28 for a Panama Canal cruise. One of the first things we noticed as we explored the ship was that the solarium had a strong odor of sewage. This odor was very unpleasant and recurred ... 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

Panama cruise April 13 - April 28 2015 Due to mechanical problems, our flight between Brussels and Atlanta was delayed with more than 7 hours. Besides that the flight between L.A. and San Diego was cancelled. So we did the last track by ... Read more

Overall: While we had enjoyable experiences on the cruise this was due more to the ports of call rather than the ship itself. Overall the cruise fell well below our expectations. The quality of food was not much above fast food / cafe ... Read more

The Infinity cruise before us had norovirus, but Celebrity went above and beyond to make sure our cruise didn't have the same problem. They were extra cautious and I applaud them for it. We'd sailed on other cruise lines but this was the ... Read more

We picked this ship because of the itinerary. We had an aft concierge cabin and the large deck was worth the up-charge, plus the itinerary suited an aft for earlier sailaways and the Canal journey. The ship was very clean having just ... Read more

I'm on the fence with this rating between Average and Very Good. Due to the Panama Canal crossing we chose an aft stateroom (7206) and were very pleased with the location looking at the wake, especially going through the canal and ... Read more

Our cabin or state room as they call it, was a pleasant surprise-very clean, large and modern. We had a balcony which was appreciated very much as we were always able to see the ocean and never felt claustrophobic. Our cabin steward, ... Read more

Check in was extremely fast and painless. We arrived on the early side of boarding times. Although we were on the ship early, our luggage did not arrive until just before dinner, almost 6:30 PM. Our ship was scheduled to sail at 4:30 ... Read more

This was our second Celebrity cruise and our second time on the Infinity. One of the main reasons we selected this cruise was due to the exceptional time we had on an Infinity transatlantic cruise in 2013. Unfortunately, this cruise ... Read more

We stayed in a suite and the first thing we noticed was that it was not clean. The suite was large and the bathroom was at least a hundred square feet. The corners of the bathroom floor were dirty and the floor was badly stained. The room ... Read more
