We did a 14 night cruise around the tip of South America. First let me say the itinerary was terrific. They had a naturalist onboard who was terrific, and they had a port/cruise guide (Mickey Live) onboard who was also terrific. The food ... Read more

First, we had a basic inside room on deck 2. I like sleeping in the dark. The room, although small, had plenty of storage spaces and was very clean. It did not looked worn at all. We appreciated the slightly larger sized shower and the ... 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

We experienced the Celebrity Silhouette on a Mediterranean cruise in 2012 and loved it. We had a great time and were very impressed by the ship and hospitality. We booked Celebrity Infinity on the experience of our last cruise. ... Read more

We are frequent Celebrity cruisers visiting these ports for first the time. We planned several private tours with roll call members which were the highlights of the trip. This was a wonderful trip but the ship played at most a supporting ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Celebrity, first on this ship. It is in need of a thorough cleaning, especially the carpets in the stateroom. Two of the ceiling lights were out, and after numerous calls to have them repaired (replace the ... Read more

Went from Buenos Aires to Santiago-14 day. First let me point out that this is not a cheap cruise. Pricing for RS cabin and air cost close to 20k for two with insurance so my expectation was for a trip close to Sea bourn, as we had taken ... Read more

We hadn`t sailed on Celebrity in our last few cruises (mostly on Princess and HAL) so we were a little apprehensive. Embarkation in Buenos Aires was painfully slow, but when we finally got onto the ship everything proceeded efficiently. ... Read more

Long check in to board cruise liner Food Luke warm at best and often cold Cruise personnel seem very disillusioned and this was reflected in the service or lack thereof provided Cruise personnel were reprimand in front of guests and ... Read more

Up front: This was our 15th cruise. This was our 3rd cruise on Celebrity. This was our 2nd cruise on the Infinity. Something's happened to this cruise line (or at least this ship) over the past 17 months, and it's NOT an improvement by ... Read more

Others have done a _wonderful_ job of reviewing this cruise and their advice was very useful in letting us know what to expect. I'll just add things that either weren't mentioned or I would have preferred more emphasis on (or perhaps I ... Read more

This is not what I would describe as a leisurely pleasure cruise. There is no showroom or casino on the ship, very little entertainment & no pool. This is for those interested in close up encounters with an amazing variety of animals ... Read more

What you have read in other reviews is quite accurate. Here is my perspective: Celebrity planning - everything works like clockwork. Every detail is covered. Highly efficient and professional. You get what you pay for. When we arrived at ... Read more

We sailed on the Infinity from February 16 to March 30, three back-to-back. On day 10, the ship was put into what we called "lockdown" because of the novovirus. The Antarctica portion of the trip was great. The next two cruises were a ... Read more
