We have taken 15 cruises on 5 different cruise lines and this cruise was one of our favorites. This is an adventure not to be missed by anyone. It's even better if you can go to Iguazu Falls before boarding the ship in Buenos Aires.I highly recommend this aded adventure. We flew from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls on New Years day and spent the full day with a private tour guide at the falls. It was an outstanding sight, far greater than Niagara. You have to see it to believe it. The falls from the Argentinian side is wonderful. It is not necessary to go to the Brazilian side and pay the high cost for the visa. You only need one full day to see everything in Iguazu National Park and then fly back to Buenos Aires for rest and relaxation. We stayed at the Sheraton Park Tower in Buenos Aires and I would highly recommend it. Very clean, excellent service and wonderful restaurants. Our room overlooked the city and it was just beautful. We also took a private tour of Buenos Aires before boarding the Infinity. Also excellent. We used TravelBound through our travel agent. Excellent, efficient company especially since servioce was provided on a holiday weekend.
Embarking the Infinity was fast and easy. It took about 20 minutes to be in our cabin. Since the ship just came out of drydock all the carpets and bedding were changed and everything was sparkling new and clean. We had an oceanview cabin in the front of the ship and the view going through the Beagel Channel was spectacular. We usually take a balcony but we felt with the cooler temperatures, we would not use it much and we were right. Much to our surprise, we didn't even miss the balcony and used the saved money for the shore excursions.
The service was as we expected- excellent. Everyone worked so hard to please every passenger and their kindness was wonderful. We have sailed with Celebrity many times before and this outstanding service and fdelicious ood is what brings us back each time. the productions shows were very good. The Celebrity singers and dancers are good enough to perform on Broadway. One night we ate in Qsine and it was so unusual. You have o experience it because you will always remember this experience. We also ate an early brekfast at Bistro on 5 and that, too, was excellent. The Beyond the Podium speaker, Graham Sunderland was so informative and quite witty. We really enjoyed his presentations. The ship was wonderful but the itinerary is the best part.
