Celebrity Infinity Cruise Review by pi45: Entertaining and enlightening
Overall Member Rating
Entertaining and enlightening
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Santiago (Valparaiso)
This was a great trip! We must add that meeting other Cruise Critic members really "made" the trip. We cannot encourage enough that you should use this service to meet and learn from others.
The Infinity was just done over to bring it in line with the Solstice ships. The updates have certainly helped, but the ship still is not as quite as physically nice the new ones. With that said, this ship offers a wonderful experience to all that cruise on it. The staff is caring, and obviously well trained. Celebrity must treat them very well, as they are, almost to a man (or woman), happy to be working on the ship and for the line.
I have on some of the other reviews some negatives about the food compared to the past. In my opinion, lots of folks think everything was better in the past.
This ship offered way above average food. Was every meal a five star selection? No, of course not. Nor did we pay for five star food. We didn't see anyone that look emaciated, More but rather most were just the opposite.
The cruise gave us an opportunity to meet and see interesting places with interesting and nice people. Our cabin (lucky for us was a family room), was well serviced by well trained and super nice guys. The shows on board were fun. The entertainment director was the best we have seen on a cruise. The dining room staff, as well as the specialty restaurants staffs, actually made you feel like you were a guest.
For those who enjoy laying out at the pool, there is a problem. The problem is that some guests have no consideration of others, and hog the lounges all day. This is not the ship's fault, and maybe some will learn better manners.
Oh, kudos to the guys at the martini bar. Great fun to have them serve the drinks.
Some of the boxes that needed to be checked really don't apply to this cruise. We have come as close as we can to answering them. Less

Cabin review: 1A8181
If you can get 8181, grab it! You walk into the room by the long room length hallway. The only thing it lacks is a bathroom a lot larger. The closets were plentiful. There was the small bedroom, and a living room. Both with flat screen tv's. The veranda is huge. And, the location, all the back at he end of the ship, aft on the port side was quiet and perfect.
