We are not so-called 'veteran' cruisers. This is our fourth trip, and the first aboard Celebrity. Before we booked this cruise - from Valparaiso, Chile through the Canal to Miami, I read a number of the Cruise Critic reviews of ... Read more

Had only been on a 3-day cruise years ago so this was a big cup hangs for me. Went with 5 girlfriends and we had a wonderful time. I want to mention we arrived in Santiago a day early and used that time to tour Santiago. The next day we ... Read more

I'm happy we decided to take this cruise around Cape Horn. It was everything we hoped it would be and more. We booked this cruise a year and a half before it sailed. As it got closer to sail date we also booked 5 nights in Buenos ... Read more

This was my first Celebrity Cruise and overall I was impressed. If you are used to the average British cruise ship this is a step up. However if you are used to 5 star and/or Solstice Class ships then think of the ship as 4 star and ... Read more

This cruise could have been great but that was made impossible by the lack of security and chaos at embarkation and disembarkation in Buenos Aires. When we arrived at the terminal in BA we found a very long line created by one (only) ... Read more

Sailed January 2016
As is true with most 3-5 star lines, this cruise was a mixed bag, mostly good. Start with entry, long line at 12 pm with no differentiation after a half hour we go around the corner and things go smoother, concierge benefits and we ... Read more

I would like to say up front that my vacation in South America overall was excellent, however that was hardly in part to Celebrity Infinity itself. I should have known things would be poorly planned and executed when I got bad ... Read more

Celebrity Infinity is not looking its best. Rust stains all over the exterior don't make for a good first impression. The inside is very dated, clean but certainly not glamorous or chic. The dining in the Trellis restaurant was very ... Read more

The cruise was fine in general. But it was lack of activity on board. Cruise Director Sara was excellent, but she needed a team of helpers. Performances of dancers, singers and especially acrobats were excellent. Lecturers on board ... Read more

Celebrity no longer lives up to their reputation and seem to have developed a caste system where only those who have traveled with them many times have access to all of the restaurants, have access to all of the services and are treated ... Read more

I have been on about 80 cruises and have sailed on the Infinity alone for at least 70 days within the last 2 years (did a B2B x 2 in 2013/14). I will think hard about booking another cruise with Celebrity after this disappointing 14 night ... Read more

Embarked at Valparaiso for 14 day South America cruise. Bit slow at check in (suite class queue, supposed to be priority), but staff helpful and friendly. The Infinity showing some signs of wear and tear, particularly the outdoor spaces, ... Read more

for our 14th cruise we decided to try a "step up" from RCCL and try Celebrity. I must say we were very disappointed in our whole experience. The ship has had a recent updating so it was clean and pleasant looking. however the ... Read more

Visiting the Galapagos Islands has been on our bucket list forever, but it always seemed very daunting (both the cost and the expedition nature of the trip, especially on small boats). When we learned about Celebrity Xpedition, we felt ... Read more

Check! Was a great cruise. We were in cabin 506. It had a king bed and balcony. I highly recommend the balcony. We used the table and chairs and had cocktails and read books and star gazed nightly. Ship is a bit dated and needs a ... Read more

We have travelled on Celebrity many times and are elite status. On this cruise we booked a suite but were disappointed with the administration on board. We did not get the welcome letter therefore missing out on the early cruise 'elite' ... Read more

We were on the Infinity on March 1st until March 29th, 2015. Had I not known the name of the Cruise Line I would have never, ever thought I was on the Infinity. I found the entertainment at night boring. So much so, that we would go ... Read more

In my opinion. All the Celebrity email promotions were useless, including my birthday credit because they were targeted to everything but the ship I was on. No-one at Celebrity phone center has any idea what the Xpedition is about.  ... Read more
