Infinity still great!

A 23 year old ship is never going to be impressive compared to a glitzy new one, but you know that before you board. What Infinity might lack in the the latest pizzazz it more than makes up for in style and friendliness and the recent dry-dock has left her nicely smartened up. Many carpets, furniture and beds have been replaced. (They even renewed many balcony chairs mid cruise). Being a ...

Summary of the Celestyal Journey cruise (14 days 3-23 - 4-6-24) Despite having low expectations beforehand, the cruise fell below my expectations. As hard as it was to gather information before the cruise, once onboard it truly wasn’t much better. For someone who is a ‘planner,’ not knowing when a tour is going to leave until after 9:00 the night before just doesn’t work. The shame of it ...

After reading reviews of the Celestyal Journey's first cruise in September we were apprehensive to say the least, but hoped that, by now, the glitches were all sorted out. And they were. This is one of the best cruises we have ever undertaken. We booked this on the 29th Feb sale day for the staggeringly low price of £140.00. 5 nights, 6 days, and overnight in Istanbul. Unbelievable. Included ...

I totally love this little 1250 max roughly little ship. Great Service, great staff attitude, great value. We have done a number of big ship cattle cruises which we we really started to dislike. No queues for anything apart from the odd coffee. The entertainment was really good and well thought out for 9 days, credit to the director. We are hoping to return to Athens in October for another ...

Our very first cruise . ( we usually stay in good 4 star hotels for point of reference ) Embarkation : this was a bit odd, arriving an hour early there was nowhere to prompt us where to go . Inside the terminal we thought ...but no ..we were supposed to line up outside next to the taxi rank , but it wasnt organized yet , nor was there anything telling you where it would be .We were on the ship ...

We have cruised on other Cruise Lines, however this trip was our first Viking Cruise. Our experience was first class from the time of check-in to leaving the ship. The ship itself is absolutely beautiful with many extra amenities for passengers. The Nordic Spa is a must visit while on board, grab a new friend and go relax. The upgraded "Silver Spirits" package is well worth the money, if you ...

This is our second cruise with Celestyal, and will not be our last. The staff from the Celestyal Crystal had transferred to the Celestyal Journey, and we were delighted to be remembered by many of them, which increased our cruise enjoyment. Originally a three week cruise to start with the Three Continents, which was changed to a new itinerary, due to the conflict in Gaza. For the first week, ...

Pros.. the balcony room was of a good size and didn't disappoint. The excursions were well organised but only in English. free shuttles from some of the ports to town centre were offered. The entertainment was good enough. Cons... the ship deals only in English. Excursions only offered in English even though departing from Athens. Everything is geared towards American traveller; the air ...

We have Just got off our Celestyal Journey 7 night Idyllic Aegean cruise in Athens and have been blown away by how much we have enjoyed ourselves… we cannot wait to cruise with Celestyal again! We originally booked their 3 continents cruise because it ticked Egypt and the Pyramids off our bucket list. Having previously cruised with some of the big cruise lines (RCCL, NCL, Princess, Disney, ...

Firstly let me say that I read over 100 reviews of Infinity before the cruise. The average score, below 3 out of 5 with many scoring it 1, made it difficult to predict how enjoyable this cruise would be. This was my first Celebrity cruise although my wife & daughter sailed on Equinox about 12 yrs ago. For us the biggest plusses on this cruise were the staff, the entertainment & the ...
