Ship Facts: Celebrity Infinity Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Infinity Deck Plans
No hands through the Panama Canal Locks
We stayed in the Hilton Hotel waterfront for 2 nights. Check-in was abysmal, as we had a wait of over 2 hours as our corner seafacing room wasn't ready! We were unaware prior to arrival that this hotel is dog friendly and therefore we had sleepless nights with dog(s) crying/ barking. Hotel well situated within easy walk to restaurants, gaslight district and seafront attractions.

Embarkation at noon took about 30 minutes with fast moving queues and the welcome drink aboard was much appreciated. Our stateroom was spacious with a large veranda. Everything worked well, with no problems. Our steward was very polite and courteous and when the hired tux had not arrived, for the following evening formal dinner, he attended to the matter promptly.

We had decided on anytime dining which worked well as we could dine with new found friends.

Main dining room seating was prompt, service and food was excellent. My DH enjoys his food piping hot, so after a complaint on the first night every meal thereafter was the perfect temperature. We had a problem with the wine but after a talk to the sommelier , we were happy with his advice on our choice of wine. Customer services were great and made sure we were happy.

Patti Honacki our cruise director was great fun and was interesting to talk to and interested in her passengers.The kitchen visit was not to be missed.

We had a spectacular meal with the main and dessert flambeed at the table, beautifully presented, silver service in the speciality restaurant. We didn't really enjoy the quirky Qsine restaurant , although perhaps in a group situation more dishes could be tasted and the service quicker.

We enjoyed the well presented shows, a different performance each night, with something for everyone. The talks on The Panama Canal by Uncle Marty were informative and very worthwhile .

We thoroughly enjoyed the transit through the canal, watching all the activity from the comfort of our balcony.

We went on excursions in each port, the self-drive 4x4 through the desert hills and along the beach in Mexico was a great adventure. All of the excursions were well organized, were all as described ( or better) and the cool drink and facecloth were very welcome each time we got back to the ship to be greeted by the smiling Celebrity staff.

Disembarkation in Ft. Lauderdale took what seemed like hours with long queues.
