Infinity - Alaska

Sail Date: September 2005
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: San Francisco

We sailed the Infinity for 12 nights beginning September 15, 2005 round trip from San Francisco to Alaska. This is an upscale ship with upscale passengers who are, for the most part, retired and elderly. There were only a handful of children onboard, including our 15 yr. old daughter who was the only 15 yr old girl on board. Needless to say, she was pretty bored. However, we were NOT as there was so much to see and do.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and accommodating. Our waiter and his assistant were outstanding and they only serviced our table of 7 plus one other table so the service was more than we hoped for. However, the food fell a little short of our expectations at dinnertime. The presentation was excellent but the quality was rather disappointing.

We ate breakfast in the dining room every morning and it was very good. Lunch at the buffet was visually unappealing and we found ourselves eating pizza and hamburgers a lot. Not acceptable from this More cruise line!

Our cabin with balcony was way too small for 2 people, much less 3. We couldn't fit all our clothes in the tiny closets and so had to leave some in suitcases under the bed. We were climbing all over each other to get from the bathroom to the balcony. This is the smallest cabin we have ever had on any line. Nicely appointed, but 10 more sq. feet would have been nice.

The entertainment was wonderful and the theater was great because there were no pillars blocking our view.

Easy on, easy off in the ports!! Kudos to Celebrity for that!!

We expected better food, and at least some younger people on board. And, Celebrity doesn't have a coin operated laundry like most of the other lines. $60.00 for one load of wash which we had to send out. 12 days on a cruise and we had no choice. Still, the service was fantastic and we did have fun in the ports and getting on/off the ship was super fast even with the tenders! Less
