My family of 4 decided to take this 16 day cruise to the Panama Canal mostly to show the kids a part of history (it was also a great excuse to take a 2 week cruise for Thanksgiving to relax and avoid family drama!!). This was our ... Read more

We chose this cruise to see again the Panama Canal. The on-board commentator, Bill Fall (if I remember his name correctly) was fabulous. His knowledge of every single detail of the canal is awesome! The canal itself is a wonder to ... Read more

We originally did this cruise back in 2014 on the Century and had a wonderful time. My next door neighbor Tom wanted to go on a cruise with his lady friend and asked us where they should go so we did some various choices and he picked the ... Read more

My husband and I always wanted to go to Hawaii but we don't like long flights. The cruise was round trip to from and to San Diego. We were able to spend several days in San Diego prior to the cruise. We rented a car and drove up the ... Read more

My wife, daughter, and I have been on a dozen plus cruises. Timing and only flying one way were the reasons for booking this cruise. I had read that embarkation in San Diego was not always smooth. We received an e-mail saying our ... Read more

Chose this cruise because I had friends booked on it. Also, it was an opportunity to return to CA, and then visit states I had not been to before, Oregon & Washington. Loved the Infinity, so sad she had problems docking in Alaska! ... Read more

We chose this cruise to replicate a cruise we did in 2008 which included Alaska. This time we did B2B with the Alaska cruise. The ship was a nice size but was showing some signs of its age. Embarkation at San Diego was very fast and ... Read more

Even though we had visited most of these ports before, we loved them all and wanted to visit again. Started out staying in San Diego 3 nights before the cruise. Visited the zoo, which is a must, La Jolla, just beautiful, Coronado ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports. We really enjoyed all of them. I would highly recommend this itinerary. As far as the cruise experience, we were slightly disappointed in the shows in the theater. The guest entertainers were pretty ... Read more

I'll start by saying we are loyal Celebrity cruisers for several reasons. We are Blue Chip Club VIPs and as such they take very good care of us. This was our 6th X cruise and our first Pacific Coastal. We chose this trip based on the ... Read more

Overall, it was an OK cruise. The MDR menu really need to refer to previous generations menus where there where more choices for each course. Now there are 'starters' and 'entrees'. Cabin 3130 was awesome if you are on an M class ship. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and Cruise Line. The Canal was underwhelming since it was impossible to hear the transit narration over the PA system and therefore we missed the history and tidbits concerning the old vs new ... Read more

Panama Canal always has been one of my bucket list cruises and am glad I finally saw the marvels of going through the canal but 15 days was a little too long on this older ship. What was missing was the fun factor we see on Royal Caribbean ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we wanted to do the complete transit of the Canal. We've always enjoyed cruising with Celebrity and this time did not disappoint us. Passengers had been given a specific time to check in (based on the ... Read more

We took the Celebrity Infinity (ship) cruise through the Panama Canal in April 2016. There's good and bad about the cruise and the company. The ship was good - it's clean, well organized and the staff is excellent. Based on that, they ... 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

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
