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

Not rated Sailed January 2015
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

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
