Ship Facts: Celebrity Infinity Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Infinity Deck Plans
Panama Canal April 2012
We returned two weeks ago from sailing through the Panama Canal aboard the Celebrity Infinity. What a wonderful cruise! The ship was fabulous and the ports of call well worth it. Just going through the Panama Canal was an incredible experience. What an engineering feat!

The Infinity has recently been refurbished and everything sparkled! Our stateroom was very nice. Our stateroom attendant pampered us with fresh flowers, champagne and great service. The frozen towels and ice water on the dock was a nice touch after some very hot excursions!

The main dining room had scrumptious food! Our head waiter left a little to be desired, however. He was always in a hurry and made some sort of mistake almost every evening, mostly serving the wrong entrees to the wrong people There was no attempt to learn our names until about the 10th night! Not what we had experienced on previous cruises. The bar service was a little strange in a few of the lounges too. One bartender said she couldn't mix our drinks as ordered, because she had never heard of it! It was the Drink of the Day! Also, the pool area lacked adequate bar staff and was very slow in mixing drinks. The Oceanview Cafe was fine for breakfast, but we found it lacking in taste and quality for other meals.

The Rendevous Lounge had the best band playing there nightly, one that played big band music and lots of ballroom choices. We loved having a late night drink there before retiring.

The Bistro on Five, a new speciality restaurant, was incredible! Quietly tucked away on Deck 5, it served many types of crepes, both meal and dessert types. Fantastic! Of course, there was an extra charge, but well worth the $5 each! A nice alternative to a noisy buffet for lunch.

All in all, the cruise was well worth the expense in terms of quality and ports of call. The Panama Canal is a once in a lifetime trip, especially with "Uncle Marty" along as narrater! Hats off to a wonderful time!
