Ship Facts: Celebrity Infinity Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Infinity Deck Plans
Nice, But Quite Average

This was a wine immersion cruise, whatever that means. Nice ports, however average experience on the ship. The Infinity is one of the older ships in the fleet. Solstice class ships are so much nicer.

The cruise left from Harwich, England, which was a good two and a half hour drive from London Heathrow. Embarkation was a breeze. No one in the the concierge line, so we breezed right through. Went up to the buffet and there were no seats to be had. Finally grabbed one. Seemed like every passenger on the boat was up there. Finally went to our cabin #8165. Aft area of the boat. Our door was right across the hall from the main crew door, which was noisy at times. This ship, the Infinity, looked as though it was time to get a refurbishment. Scratched walls, shower tile was dirty, etc. Our cabin steward came in and introduced himself. Very nice guy and made sure that we had everything that we needed. He even brought us an extra bottle of champagne, for free.

Even though we were concierge class, I noticed that about half of the room service menu had been cut from previous Celebrity cruises. Also, they have cut out their free movies. All movies were $12.95.

Dinner in the dining room was average to good. Same menu from every Celebrity ship. I wish that they would change it up a bit. Anyway, the food was much better than the buffet, which served the same food menu every night. The Captains Club lounge was nice. Complimentary cocktails each night before dinner.

This cruise had some great ports, though. First port was LeHavre. Easy to get a train into Paris. We didn't need an organized tour. LaRochelle, France, was a lovely town. Bilboa, Spain, was a nice city. No need for organized tours.

It felt like everyone on the boat was sick. Coughing, sneezing everywhere. We both caught cold as well and were sick the second half of the cruise. Entertainment was good. The Celebrity dancers were great. I would probably not repeat this cruise again, however it was fun to see ports that I'd never been to. My only major complaint was that Celebrity charged you for shuttles into town. Our last day was in Portugal and raining so hard that people didn't want to get off the ship, however there was no refund for the shuttle.
