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

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

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

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
