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

A wonderful trip where we saw no end of wildlife, and I would recommend to anyone interested in birds and aquatic life. In terms of giving an account of what you will see and the standards of the crew and naturalists I don't think I can ... Read more

The ship rocked for most of the trip and the waves were NEVER over 15 feet. Where were the stabilizers?The food was really not edible at most dinners (we were 2nd seating). My estimate is that about 1/2 the passengers ended up with some ... Read more

There were so many things I was worried about when selecting a Galapagos Cruise so I'll try to address those. 1. Itinerary A or B? We talked with a couple who just came off A and were doing B with us and asked their opinion. They said ... Read more

My husband and I needed a cruise that was more into seeing beautiful scenery than lots of stops as I had just gotten over some injuries from a fall. This was the perfect cruise. We had sailed on Celebrity before; on the Silhouette last May ... Read more

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks, sailing to Antarctica. The weather was great. Slight or calm seas for Rounding the Horn and crossing Drakes Passage. We were so fortunate we had good weather, and were able to see so much. ... Read more

What better way to celebrate a "big birthday" than pushing the boat out on a cruise to new destinations on a favourite cruise line? The Infinity round trip from Buenos Aires down to Cape Horn and beyond with visits to Patagonia, the ... Read more

We chose the cruise because of is itinerary - this did not disappoint. Too many aspects of the way were treated seemed designed to get as much money out of us as possible. We were bombarded with numerous over-priced offers. Having already ... Read more

We have sailed on Celebrity many times and almost always are very happy with them. The crew/staff on this cruise did not seem to be at par with other cruises. Although they said the proper things, many of them did not seem as happy as on ... Read more

This was a bucket list cruise for me. I had been concerned after reading some reviews here, but found the Infinity in excellent condition. The service provided by our cabin steward (Pamela) and our waiter (Randy) were superior. The public ... Read more

The ship is tired and badly in need of an upgrade. There were sewage odours towards the end of the trip. Celebrity was constantly trying to sell something whether in the daily info, in front of the 10th floor buffet, on TV or as part of ... Read more

The Itinerary: We took the round-the-Horn cruise starting in Valparaiso (with organized private tour from Santiago including a Casablanca winery). It's advisable to build in a couple of extra days to see Santiago and Valparaiso ( the ... Read more

Background- we took the South America cruise minus Antarctica. Weather was great so we lucky! Brought too many hot weather clothes as we wore long pants until day 10. For formal nites, the guests were not as formal as usual. Not many ... Read more

If you are sailing as an Elite member you will certainly enjoy the onboard activities, specifically for members. But since they are so blatant, they put off first time cruises to Celebrity. More than once we were removed from the ... Read more

Let's start with the positive: the cabin was spacious, with a king size bed and generous amounts of storage for clothes, accessories and suitcases. Everything in the cabin worked and it was kept clean by the attendant. However, there was a ... Read more
