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

The Infinity, though older was neat and clean and well kept. As regular Princess cruisers we were impressed by Celebrity service levels. Example,: try and contact guest services during busy hours on Princess, not happening. But Celebrity ... 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

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

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

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
