We, along with about 60 others from all over Australia, travelled half way around the World to experience a cruise to Alaska (5th to 12th Sept '04) on the Infinity, and we, along with those we had chance to talk with afterwards, unanimously voted this as simply one of the best holiday cruises we have ever had.
There is little one can add to the previous glowing comments on the Infinity, we had an Ocean View Stateroom which we found very comfortable and was ample in size for the limited time we spent in it, as there is so much to see and do!
The food was simply stunning, the service five star, the entertainment brilliant, and the views of Canada and Alaska defy description.
The time we spent at the Hubbard Glacier was awe-inspiring, for a start it was a cloudless, crisp and clear sunny day, in fact we ended up getting sunburnt.
The Glacier "calved" about 6 or 8 times while we were there, and I was told by some of the old-timers in the crew that More
it was one of the best days and best displays that they had experienced, we were just so lucky.
There was nothing about this Cruise or the Infinity and her Crew that one could fault, nevertheless, I must say, and I will obviously get some "stick" here, that there were occasions when we experienced some of our "American Cousins" complaining about the most trivial of matters, some of which was obviously of their own making.
I am so sorry to have to say that, but this has seemed to have crept in to the American pshysic over the past decade or so, not just on this cruise but everywhere one encounters Americans on holiday, sorry people but if your biggest problem is that the toilet paper doesn't tear along the perforated line, then I have to say you've got nothing to complain about!
I am reminded of an Old Chinese Proverb, "Man with no shoes should grieve for man with no feet!"
In all we had such a wonderful time we would have no hesitation in recommending Infinity, and the Alaskan Cruise, to even the most discerning of traveller. Less
