Ship Facts: Celebrity Infinity Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Infinity Deck Plans
Antartica-- WOW!
Our first try to reach Antartica was February 2011, but gale force winds in Paradise aborted the trip after a foggy morning at Elephant Island,. Decided to try again and we lucked out! The comments about embarkation in Buenos Aires by others was right on, A miserable experience and we were unable to get assistance from local meet and greet contact or home office which seemed critical to us as our luggage arrived 3 days late and an hour before official check in was scheduled to be completed-- a wee bit stressful!!

This trip, Celebrity changed its itinerary with only one stop between BA and Antartica. The seas around Cape Horn and through the Drake passage were amazingly calm-- smoother seas than many transatlantics or Caribbean cruises. Arriving in Antarctic region, the day started out foggy but by mid-morning was clearing and we had a sunny day in Paradise Bay --just amazing as was the leopard seal who floated on an iceberg next to our ship for at least an hour. Words are really inadequate to describe how beautiful it was. That evening we cruised up the Gerlache Straits during early evening and had a lovely sunset to end the day,

The next morning we passed through several cloud banks but by the time we got to Elephant Island the sun was out and the sky was clear.. Another amazing day with stunning visuals. Whales were spouting again, seals swimming near the ship and by the time we left, penguins were feeding and jumping near the ship,.

So glad we took a second chance on this itinerary. If you want to see Antartica at a reasonable price, this is the way to go, Just remember,storms and fog is not uncommon so be prepared to try more than once! wish I knew how to add a few photos!!
