Ship Facts: Celebrity Infinity Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Infinity Deck Plans
celebrity infinity panama canal pros and cons

this was my sixth cruise, but first two week cruise. the two weeks flew by quickly. the ship was fine, but smaller, older and more basic than the solstice class ships ( our favorite) . we tried a sweet sixteen cabin and really liked the larger balcony and close proximity to the water. the cabin attendant Anabell was great. and the ship's activity crew was fantastic. Especially liked Baldo. some of the theater shows were amaturish, but we really enjoyed the comedian and Hector the magician. we like meeting the other passengers during the cruise. also enjoyed many of the trivia contest, water color classes and panama canal guest lectures. aft of deck 12 behind the basketball court is kind of a waste of space. overall the cruise was a good success. thank you celebrity, but the disembarkation was a huge mess. its unfortunate that a two week cruise "glow" is completely wiped away by a unpleasant 2 hour disembarkation with yelling passengers. luggage areas were not in numerical order (why is area 14 between on other side or terminal between areas 24 and 26?) , luggage pick up area numbers were posted too low so that they were hidden by the standing crowds, too little instructions by the cruise ground staff so that passengers were not told to collect luggage before standing in the very long customs line, too few customs agents, way too few cabs and confusing egress out of terminal- we missed out flight due to the messy disembarkation. lesson learned- we will do the early express walk off for now and on carry our own luggage.

pros:

-Hector the magician

-Baldo activities staff

-Anabell cabin attendant

-panama canal

-poolside burgers & fries

-trivia contests (we won four times)

-Miami DJ with live bongo player

-martini bar

-water color class

-sushi at 5:30 each day

cons:

- gym equipment is old and worn, at least three machines "out of order", half of ear bud audio plugs were broken or missing

- dining room food was way over salted

- disembarkation a big mess ( ft Lauderdale)

- no shuffle board

- ships coffee
