We choose this cruise based on the itinerary. South America was on our bucket list and Celebrity offered a decent price with perks so we decided to book it. It was a great experience. We love the Infinity (this is our 3rd trip on it) ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on the Buenos Aires to Valpariso March 5th, 2017 trip. We contribute this mainly to our room and amenities that came with it. We were in Royal Suite 6134, and it was a great room. Separate bedroom and living ... Read more

The cruise was selected for the itinerary primarily and the Celebrity line for a previous excellent experience with them. Both embarkation in Buones Aires and disembarking in Valparaiso was excellent, efficient and professional. We had ... Read more

This was my 2nd cruise on the Infinity. The first cruise was in Aqua Class. This time I tried Concierge Class. Overall, the cruise was wonderful. My cabin 7212 faced the stern which gave me a huge balcony. In addition, the room was ... Read more

Celebrity runs a top notch operation in the Galapagos. From our arrival to departure we were well taken care of! The tour guides were informative on land and the naturalist offered their vast knowledge on the islands. The whole tour runs ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise with Celebrity, all on different ships. We spent a couple of nights in Buenos Aires before the cruise and this was really worth it as it is a lovely city. Make sure you go to a tango show. A boat trip to the ... Read more

We wanted to go to go to the Rio Carnival, which this cruise was focussed around, and also the Iguazu Falls which we were able to add on as an extra at the end of the cruise. These two locations did not disappoint. We should point out ... Read more

This was a once in a lifetime itinerary to see the Rio Carnivale. There were 6 ships in Rio de Janiero during Carnivale, so Rio is packed with tourists at this time of year. This means that seeing Sugar Loaf / Christ the Redeemer statue ... Read more

The ports of call were a little different from usual South American ones with Ilhabela and Buzios included. The shore excursion department did not always have correct information to give on the excursions offered, and I found that ... Read more

We wanted to sail to Antarctica and to visit Buenos Aires. We've sailed on just about every cruise line, but not on Celebrity--only because we choose our lines by their itineraries. We've sailed on Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess and ... Read more

In order to get to see Antarctica and visit The Falklands you have to accept that there will be lots of sea days which we generally try and avoid. It was certainly worth it. We had a poor experience for a number of reasons on a Panama ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. It was our 1st time sailing with Celebrity. Unless you are an Elite Club member, your choices in restaurants, food, bars and level of service is extremely limited. We found the obvious class ... Read more

This cruise completed my quest for the 'Seven Continents' certificate. We didn't want to pay the $10,00 to $15,000pp of the smaller cruise lines, so Celebrity is the logical choice. We choose a window cabin, mid-ship, deck three, just in ... Read more

We invited 4 other couples to accompany us on the Valparaiso to Buenos Aires cruise but later felt we owed them an apology. The positives: interesting itinerary, excellent weather (calm seas--even at Cape Horn--and rain only on sea days), ... Read more
