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 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

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

I have cruised this same ship and itinerary several times ( I live part time in Buenos Aires). I am elite on Celebrity (and close to Elite +). In my opinion the food served in both the Oceanview café (buffet) and main dining ... 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 chose this cruise for the itinerary and were pleased with the visits to the ports. The weather was perfect and we were very lucky to actually cruise Cape Horn and the Straits. We have sailed the Infinity on several past cruises. ... Read more

The ship itinerary and naturalist, Mickey Live couldn't be beat on this fantastic voyage leaving from Valparaiso, Chile and sailing around Uruguay to Buenas Aieres, Argentina. Tours were well organized on the ship but overburdened on land ... Read more

My main reason for choosing this cruise was the itinerary and I decided to do it on Celebrity Infinity as I had sailed on Celebrity before and for them to be reasonable good value for money. Unfortunately this was not the case this time ... 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

Was a very nice cruise. Only disappointment was the limited snorkeling available. One port was skipped because of rough seas, and three were murky waters. Here are some Pros and Cons to our trip. Pros Nicely packaged with ... Read more

Let me start by saying that overall we had a very enjoyable vacation ( hence the 4 rating). There were several things that kept this from being a 5 star experience. There had been a GI illness outbreak during the previous cruise and ... Read more

We chose this for the itinerary. It was wonderful and we had arranged all private tours with the exception of the trip to see the Condors. The ship's first tour was late and since we were the last tour to the farm, we did not see the ... Read more

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 14-day cruise from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso. Our Sky Suite entitled us to eat in Luminae which we did every morning and all but one evening. In my opinion, the restaurant is almost enough reason to ... Read more

Great itinerary and ports of call. My only say it's about some of the shore excursions we booked, for the price we paid, some were not to my expectation. The cruise line was promt to correct these shortcomings with lavished dinners and ... Read more

First time on Celebrity. We were excited to cruise Celebrity, as friends had recommended the line. Unfortunately we had no idea that the ship for this cruise would be an old ship that was built as plain as it could be. No glory what so ... Read more

Service was great but days at sea were boring. The cabin and wait staff were wonderful. Not enough speakers or activities. There was no game room or place to play cards. Met some lovely people and excursions which we took through Cruise ... Read more

There are plenty of online platitudes regarding Celebrity Xpedition cruises to the Galapagos. Rather than reiterate that this is an amazing experience, I'm going to try to answer some of the questions that we either couldn't find answered ... Read more
