The wife and I live on the West coast, and as such are as we say "cruise starved". We found this cruise 1.5 years ago and jumped on it, anytime we can go on a cruise and not involve an airport we're in. Being mostly Princess customers, but having sailed RCI and Carnival until now, decided to give Celebrity a try and also went for aqua class. As I had heard we were met with a glass of champagne, and proceeded into our ship. I was a different style of build than we were used to, but quite elegant...the artwork was unusual I will say. Overall the condition of the ship is OK considering it's 16 years old, though much of it's furniture should be replaced. Our cabin was just what we had been accustomed to, the bed was comfy, nice linens, though honestly if you can see your hand through a washcloth I'ts pretty thin. Loved the shower, we had an extended balcony due to cabin location and we loved it. Our cabin steward we had yet to meet after two days, then we passed her in the hall, her name was Lin and she works tirelessly throughout the day...I really think they might require too many cabins to maintain, each time we saw her she seemed really tired and frantic, we tipped her extra I felt badly for her. Now on to food.....we were happy to have the Blu option, we liked most of the food and only had one morning breakfast incident to report. It just took forever to get my food the second morning. My head was exploding, while my wife was eating her meal. I got my plate and finished way later than my wife. Other than that time, service was very good, most seemed very happy and friendly. We found food in the buffet was quite typical of what we've seen on other lines. The gelato bar seems to be a complete waste of space in our opinions. The ice cream is so good in the buffet nobody was getting any, the girl had nothing to do anytime we looked....we tried one time and it was OK but nothing to go back for. Speaking of wasted spaces.....what about that "Sushi on five"...? We never got to go try it however it was on our "to do" list all week. Never many people there the many times we went by. Loved the salmon in the Spa cafe, it was right above our room so it was easy and healthier if we ate there. A few things I wish....I wish they'd put ice in the smoothies did not like warm, I wish there were an ice machine no way to ice down drinks. We used the Persian gardens three times enjoying the experience but it is a "cave" in there. Entertainment was great overall, we found a newly formed band called the Brian James band and thought they were the best band on board, each time we heard them crowds were large and their music for us had the best sound. Speaking of which, if you have a chance to get to a "silent party" by all means do. They pass out headphones each of which has three channels to listen to your style of music, each channel has a different color ear lights so it's a room full of folks dancing with no sound, the looks you'd see by folks walking into it was great. We had a conga line, this is in the martini bar...it was a hoot. Movies up on terrace we watched only one all week, they had lots of sci-fy stuff did not interest us. I was able to smoke my cigars up on deck 11 port side, the space on 10 portside had sitting areas with furniture so low it was hard to get out of your seat, heard many complaints. Luigi our CD did a good job, the theater shows are good. Overall we figure we'd sail Celebrity again, but not Infinity class. We'd like to sail the Solstice class and if we can group our status with RCI and get a good deal might. Blu is nice having more personal service for sure, Fernando the wine guy is great, we had lunch twice in the dining room it was OK and the noise and chaos we'd hear going past made us happy to have our quiet. Having the drink package was great, I did upgrade to premium but most likely would not again, I had two martinis and better liquor but in my case I don't really need to. My wife did not upgrade so we took it as an experiment to see it's value. Traveling up the California coast we enjoyed unbelievable weather, no marine layers anywhere, San Francisco was warm and clear sailing under the Golden Gate, sea day woke up to bright sunshine, the only clouds we had were in Ensenada in the morning. Hopefully we can get more cruises to come out here to the West coast, we heard on board the Infinity had not been here since 2013. One little thing I noticed that Celebrity does I've not seen until now, there are linen hand towels in the public restrooms that was a nice touch. Read Less

We were traveling to California to spend s couple days with family, we decided to make the long trip worthwhile and see more of California. We chose Celebrity as they added Catalina island as a port of call. It was a wonderful trip. Celebrity takes care in picking employees who take the extra steps. We chose select dining and never had to wait. Most nights we were waited on by Allan and Dhia. They were wonderful, giving singing commentaries. We spent a great deal of time at cellar masters with Mervin and Victor. Stone free duo were excellent. Great music, great voices. Entertainment was good. We loved the magician and comedian Carl banks the most. Games could have been a bit better, but they can only do so much with the audience. it was a great way to see different cities in California with only unpacking once, we would have liked more active excursions, but managed on our own as phones and Internet worked and everyone spoke English. we had a veranda room with the premium liquor package. Food was very good in the main dining room. Liquor choices were amazing. We did try Quisine one night and loved it. Great job celebrity, we hope to sail with you again.. Read Less

This “California Coast” cruise was our 23rd on Celebrity among more than fifty overall for my wife and me. We are now “Elite Plus” which added some additional perks like the 240 minutes of internet and multiple laundry options. We very much enjoyed this cruise as the very good food and great service from the staff and crew members continues to be top notch. This was the first of our B2B cruises so we continued onboard on our way down the Mexican Riviera and through the Panama Canal. Cabin 3104 was comfortable and quiet, even though it was very near the Grand Foyer atrium and the Guest Relations desk. Our housekeeper, Edi, did a great job keeping our cabin neat and clean while being “invisible” while we were relaxing there. The Guest Relations staff members were very professional and helpful. We were pleased to see GR Officer Garmen Zhang whom we met on our B2B2B cruises in Asia a year ago. Our OBC from Celebrity and CruCon, our travel agent, was immediately posted on our account which helped us to plan how to spend it. On other cruises, it took four or five days so this was the fastest ever. Our Captain’s Club Hostess, Paulina Ugalda, was very welcoming at the Elite and Elite Plus events. She also personally escorted us down to the tenders in all three ports. It was the most well done priority assistance we’ve ever had. It was great to see Assistant Chief Housekeeper, Gabriela, again who was so helpful when my wife fell ill on our B2B2B in Australia and New Zealand six months ago. We were able to chat with her several times and catch up on where she’s been and what’s she’s done since then. We also appreciated that we received a beautiful flower arrangement and a nice bottle of wine in our cabin from her. We were in “Select Dining” this time and were seated quickly each evening at a table for two. We appreciate that Celebrity has many of these tables, but most of them are so close together that you might as well be sharing a table. We talk to many other guests during the day and later in the evening, but we prefer to have some “down time” from these conversations at dinner. Also, my wife has trouble hearing which can make these interactions difficult. So, we opted to switch to the fixed seating at 6:00 with a more private table on the second of our B2B cruises. The food in the “Trellis” MDR was excellent as usual. We usually order our favorite dishes from each menu, but we tried some new ones this time and they were also very good. The Oceanview Café provided many options during the day and late into the night. We also enjoyed the drinks and desserts in Café al Baccio. The bartenders in the lounges were efficient even when they were very busy. DeJean in the Rendez-Vous were particularly helpful and made the best Grasshoppers we’d ever had. We continue to support “Evening Chic” with my wife in her dresses and me in my suit or tuxedo. We understand that other guests aren’t as interested in doing this as we are, but it’s nice to see some still like it as much as we do. The production shows were very good as usual and the singers and dancers were quite talented. We really enjoyed the “Swing@Sky” show in the Constellation Lounge and the entire cast kept up the high level of energy for a very long time. It was definitely the very best of that type of event on all of our cruises. On the final night, the “Duo Destiny” show with the acrobats Goncalo and Kinga was unbelievable. We were very lucky on this cruise as both bands were excellent. We saw Take 5 on our B2B2B cruises in Asia a year ago year so we were happy to see them again. They were great then and are even better now. Their female singer and their other members are very friendly and approachable. The Bryan James Band was terrific, especially since they were billed on this cruise as a “dance band” rather than “house band” or “party band”. Bryan has a great sense to humor and his band can play a wide range of music depending on the audience and the venue. We hope that Celebrity keeps both of them under contract for as long as they can. We did two ship’s excursions and four on our own. Santa Barbara: Rented a car to see the wine country, the SB Mission and the Reagan Center San Francisco (overnight) – First Day: Took my nephew and his girlfriend to dinner at the Crab House San Francisco – Second Day: Took ship’s SF03 excursion to Muir Woods and took ferry back from Sausalito on our own Monterey: Rented a convertible and drove around 17-Mile Drive and Carmel Catalina Island: Went to the Catalina Island Museum to see the Dale Chihuly glass exhibit and took a bus to Botanic Gardens Ensenada, Mexico: Took ship’s EN04 excursion to two wineries in Calafia Valley wine country One area which could use some improvement was the B2B process. At other B2B meetings, someone from the MDR was there to allow guests to select their tables for the next cruise, but that didn’t happen. As part of these past meetings, there have been drawings for prizes, offers of complimentary specialty restaurants, discounted excursions and/or coupons with codes for additional internet minutes in order to fill out the survey from the first cruise. The only “perks” this time were a 30% off a restaurant (for only the embarkation evening) and a card to get into the “Trellis” MDR 15 minutes before the newly boarding guests. We were also given the impression that this process wouldn’t take too long. We were told to gather at 9:40, but we not able to disembark until everyone else did at about 10:40. We then exited the ship and had to wait almost another hour to get back onboard at 11:30. We suspect that due to regulations, there was no chance for anyone to board before that time. It would have been better to know ahead of time that the local authorities require this timing so we could have planned for these delays. We and most of the other guests have done quite a few B2Bs so all of us were surprised that it was much more inconvenient it this time. Almost everything else on this cruise was great except one thing. While not a major problem or a “deal breaker”, we have been a bit disappointed at the recent trend of having more public areas unavailable to everyone. The Celebrity ships have very few inside venues for music and relaxation compared to other cruise lines. So, when one of them is taken out of circulation, the options are limited. We used to love to go to the piano bar in Michael’s Club (especially when Perry Grant was still with Celebrity and packed it every night), but it’s been “privatized” for many years. We’ve also seen “Private Parties” in “Quasar” on the “Solstice” class ships and in the “Constellation” type Sky Lounges on the “Millennium” class ships. On one of our cruises last year, Park West took control of the Sky Lounge for several days for private art sales. The most recent example was the Latina/o “Private Party” from 10:00 – 12:00 on the final night of this cruise which meant that most guests couldn’t enjoy that area as they had on other nights. We are well aware that Celebrity celebrates the diversity of their crew and their guests so segregating and/or excluding groups seems to be counter to that goal. We appreciate the “Elite” cocktail hours in the upper lounge, but not at the expense of access for others. In some cases, the guests who are not yet at “Elite” have been excluded from taking in the view, particularly during sail-aways. The exception was when we were on the “Infinity” for a B2B in South America and Antarctica in 2015 where we were pleased to see that there were areas roped off from the “Elite” section so everyone had a chance to see the scenery. We would certainly endorse sharing that lounge and all other venue as often as possible on every cruise. Overall, we always have a great time on Celebrity. After the Panama Canal, we have twelve more cruises booked in the Mediterranean, Middle East, India, Caribbean, Northern Europe and Transatlantic in the next year. So, we’ll look forward to having 135 more days to enjoy Celebrity’s welcoming hospitality and excellent service! Read Less

We selected this for the itinerary. We especially wanted to get to San Francisco. Alcohol Note: You can purchase wine or spirits in Seattle and bring it on board. You do not have to submit to the ship's scanner. You will go through a customs scanner but they don't care that you have bottles (very strange). The ship looks like it needs a make-over. However, the theatre, gym and dining room are all very nice. I play craps. This ship may have the worst crew working the table that I've ever come across and they seem to take their direction from their inhospitable casino manager. Stay away from this casino. Leaving the ship on the final day wasn't good. We lined up when our number was called and found that people that were exiting the elevator, simply went ahead of our line. When this was brought to the attention of a staff member, my complaint was met with a blank stare. Another case of Nobody is in Charge. The Hotel Manager doesn't seem to be aware of his responsibility to passengers. My final complaint is a big one - what were they thinking? The Hotel Manager decided it was a good idea to make the sauna a unisex facility. I won't go into the whole story ... but women were given full access to the ENTIRE men's change room/toilet area NOT JUST THE SAUNA. Imagine my surprise when I exited the shower to find two women standing outside its door waiting to use it? Read Less

We loved the itinerary on this cruise, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Monterey, Catalina and Ensenada! Included overnight in San Francisco. The staff on this ship is terrific, very attentive and nice. My biggest complaint was the Tuscan Grill. My filet was dry, the veal Marsala was heavily fried, little Marsala sauce, if any and the pasta was watery!. No elegance to the dining experience. Infinity formally had a very nice specialty restaurant with white table cloths, french service. Well worth the money, but theTuscan Grill at any price is not worth the money. Food is better at the Trellis Restaurant. We also did Qsine. Love the experience, not sure if it is worth the $45 per person upgrade, but if you dine there the first night, there is a 30% discount, and that makes it well worth it. Great selections, artistically presented. The new outdoor theatre on the eleventh deck is a fun place to relax for the afternoon. Movie selections weren't great, but the experience is well worth it. Cafe Al Boccia serves great coffees ( the room service coffee is terrible), so the best place for coffee on the ship. They offer breakfast pastries in the morning and a great assortment of cookies, cakes and other desserts all afternoon, in addition to exotic teas and alcohol. Read Less

This was at least our fifth cruise on Celebrity, the second on this ship class. We absolutely love the Thalassotherapy pool: 90-degree salty water, high pressure downspouts on head/neck/shoulders, and bubbling chaise lounge racks. We've seen nothing like it on Princess, Royal, Holland, or Carnival. No long waits for espresso at Cafe al Bacio, nor for great eggs benedict and omelets in the buffet. The dining room was a disaster though on the first night as the waiter lost our orders and we watched later arrivals eat while we sat with nothing but bread sticks. Had to hail the maitre'd to move things along and get the wine steward's attention. Finally the mushroom soup arrived but it had an off-tasting foam on top. Happily the dining room did better on the two semi-formal nights. On the last night we went to the gyros bar on the buffet deck, expecting this Greek-heritage cruise line to wow us, but there was no lamb, only chicken. Go figure. The production shows were fabulous as was the acrobatic dance duo. Liked the back deck for outdoor buffet seating, live music, and full bar. Ate at Qsine one night ($45/p) and it was an interesting but confusing experience. You order off an ipad which has 20 icons on one page for the various soup, salad, appetizer, and main course items. You're led to believe that each item is a small portion size (some are) so that you can sample most of the menu in several waves but beware, some of the items are belly stuffers like the 3 meatballs. I expected cocktail-sized meatballs on a toothpick but they're larger than a baseball. By the time we picked at them we had no room left for the chinese food. Be sure to order things in a logical order and that the larger portioned items are served last. We've done the California coastal itinerary before but never run out of new things to see/do in San Francisco like the Munch exhibit at the museum of modern art. And just when we thought we'd done everything in Catalina, we saw a Dale Chihuly exhibit at their new art museum on Metropole. In Santa Barbara lower State Street is getting a much-needed facelift. Ensenada has developed their waterfront featuring water cannons to soak the kiddies. The aquarium at Monterey is great, but at $50/p it's now about half of what Disneyland costs. Finally parking at the pier in San Pedro is a hefty $18/day. Read Less

My wife and I chose this cruise because some good friends were taking it and asked several other couples to join them - so we did! Altogether there were about 6 couples. The ports of call for this cruise were Santa Barbara, San Francisco (overnight), Monterrey, Avalon (Catalina Island) and Ensenada, MX. There were NO sea days, making this a bit of a different cruise. We drove over from Phoenix, AZ with one other couple a day ahead and stayed on the Queen Mary, about 15 minutes from the San Pedro Cruise terminal. We've done that before, and was a great way to kick off this cruise (be sure to eat at Sir Winston's for dinner). On embarkation day, we arrived about 11:30, and were aboard by about 12:30 - fairly easy and well organized. Our stateroom was #2166 (ocean-view) - very well appointed. Rooms were ready promptly at abut 1:00 p.m.; luggage arrived a bit later. Storage space was thoughtful - be sure to use the area above the TV! Our cabin attendant, Mimi, was one of the sweetest people we've met! (On an afternoon where I was not feeling well, she checked with my wife several times to see if she could help with anything!) We know food is subjective, but thought it was very well prepared considering the volume of people served. Service was very attentive and friendly, including the sommelier's. We did not do specialty dining, as the group of us ate together at Anytime Dining in the MDR (and props to the maitre de for allowing us to switch in order to join our friends). The buffet offered a lot of variety, if you surveyed the whole area, and could always find something to our liking. Breakfast offerings were very good and plentiful. You did have to pay attention to the hours, as service from time to time was scaled back in order to prepare for the next meal. But...seriously, food was available almost any time! The entertainment was terrific! The production staff did 3 shows (plus others around the ship on other days). There were a couple comedians (Clean! Rated-PG - kudos Celebrity for that!) - both very good. One of them had made appearances on Jay Leno! There was a new duo acrobat team, and their show was amazing! The guy was from Argentina (?) and the girl was from Poland. Very lovely couple, and talented! Drew a standing ovation. As an aside - as a part-time musician myself, I really appreciated the "live band" used for the production shows. It is always so much better than pre-recorded tracks, and adds class! The main lounge/house band was "ok". They were easy to listen to, but did not have quite the pizzazz I have heard from other lounge acts. We did not attend special game nights, etc., as the focus on this cruise was being with our friends. The Martini Bar must be mentioned! The bartenders are simply amazing. They really know how to put on a show while mixing/pouring the drinks, and teasing the passengers - they were so fun! Service was pretty good, but because it is a popular place, you may need to be a bit assertive to get your order in. Our group spent about an hour here before the show/dinner each night! Lastly, the Cruise Director, Luigi ("I'm Not Italian!") was so gracious and funny. We did see him during the day mingling with passengers. We always looked forward to his introductions to the shows. There was not much at all to complain about at all - we were on vacation! What we did notice especially early in the cruise was the tendency to push higher level packages (we already had the Classic beverage package, and understood that the martini's at the Martini Bar would cost an extra $3.50+ - but we were not going to upgrade to the premium package just to get those covered, we were happy to pay the difference. There are other 'upcharge' opportunities as well. However, this seems pretty standard on all lines, so we are comfortable just saying "no" and enjoying what we have. Also want to mention that we felt the Infinity was in very good condition for her age. Maintenance was constant (cleaning, painting, varnishing, etc), but nothing was unsightly. We enjoyed this cruise very much. Based on our experience, we booked a Caribbean cruise for 2018 on a Solstice-class ship. Read Less

Great knitting cruise! Older ship, but well maintained, I thought. It is, however, missing some of the things that the newer ships of the line have and unfortunately, I found the service in some areas lacking. Our cabin was great. We lucked into upgrading to a Family Verandah cabin after final payment and really enjoyed the extra space and the enormous balcony. (An aside, I wish they had designed a bit of extra space for the bathroom--I can't imagine a family of 5 using that tiny, phone-booth-sized bathroom!) Our room steward was great. Two minor downsides, the toilet ALWAYS required more than 1 flush (sorry if that's TMI, but it is what it is) and the sheets always felt slightly…clammy? Maybe the humidity at sea? Maybe just me? I attended 3 shows and they were excellent. The musical entertainment around the ship was good, if a little loud at times. Luigi did a great job as cruise director. OK, now the service issues. Embarkation was a NIGHTMARE! Well over an hour wait, incredibly long lines, and very unorganized once into the terminal. "Go sit over there." Then people were not taken into line in the order seated. Very unpleasant start to the cruise. It was almost impossible to find bar service wait staff at the 10th floor café at breakfast to order fresh squeezed orange juice. Yes, a first-world problem, but I had the beverage package mainly for the orange juice and lattes for breakfast! I was only able to get it 2 out of 7 mornings!. Ordering a latte upstairs at breakfast was virtually impossible—they had to go down to the 5th floor Café al Bacio to get it. Only got that once. I went downstairs to get it myself AFTER breakfast 6 days. Again, in the grand scheme of things, a minor annoyance, but not one I’ve experienced on my favorite (other) cruise line. The main dining room (select dining) had bar issues as well. Several times, at both lunch and dinner, dinner companions ordered drinks or wine, asked several times about them, and one night actually complained to the Maitre d’ about the unconscionable delay. He tried to explain it away by saying that it was a busy night, but really? On a cruise ship, every night is a busy night! Overall, it was not a bad experience and I will certainly cruise Celebrity again, especially for knitting cruises. However, I think most of my cruising will be on another cruise line. Read Less

This was our 14th cruise. We have tried all the other main stream lines except Disney. We stayed in an inside cabin on the 11th deck. The average age of the passengers was about 60 years old and we were the young ones in our 40s. Pros: The food was excellent and there was plenty of variety. The places we went to were beautiful and the weather was perfect. Cons: 2 ½ hour wait to get on the ship. We arrived at noon and did not step on the boat until 2:30. $7.70 12oz. Miller Lites. At this ridiculous price we did most of our drinking OFF the ship at less than half the price. The hot tubs squirt cold water out of their jets and all of them close at 9pm! They should have kept the Spa ones open until midnight. They are all unsupervised anyway. The first day there were no waiters on the deck or in the theater. And thereafter they were few and far between. The outdoor movie screen was terrible. It’s resolution was poor and had a 2 foot square block of LCDs that were much brighter than the rest. And there were only seating for about 40 people max. The pizza sucked and always had a soggy crust. Half the time it looked old like it was sitting there a long time. And slow service in the main dining room. Read Less

Wanting to stay stateside, this itinerary seems perfect. And it was! Infinity is an older ship, showing her age here and there, but she's well cared for and a nice size. Pre-cruise hotel was the Doubletree San Pedro - free shuttle, right on a marina, great views and staff. We were in Aqua for the first time and loved Blu. I understand it's not for everyone, but we loved the exceptional service and relaxed feel. (much quieter the Main Dining room) but not stuffy at all. The entertainment and activities were not up to what we are used to from Celebrity. Shows we didn't care for seemed very well received. It may be just a matter of taste. Service was topnotch everywhere on-board, with the glaring exception of our room steward. He wasn't awful, just barely adequate. Friends we traveled with had an excellent steward, so who knows.... Ports: Santa Barbara - we took an UN-air conditioned bus to Solvang, which turned a nice ride into an uncomfortable mess. I would stay in Santa Barbara and visit town and wonder why we can't live there. (it's pretty nice) San Francisco - overnight - what can you say, one of my favorite places. We took an excursion to Muir Woods, a place of natural beauty that should bring a lump to your throat. Our tour guide,Suzy, a SF native was terrific, funny , knowledgeable, and with an excellent signing voice. Monterrey - took an excursion to Carmel, one could easily spend several hours strolling it's streets. The 17 mile drive - More perfect vistas. Catalina - Never been before, a wonderful surprise. Rent a golf cart, take your time and enjoy. Another place I wish I could live! Ensenada - A mandatory non-US stop. We just strolled around and had a very vice day. Exceeded our low-expectations. Did I mention the weather?? Obviously out of our control, but it was spectacular. perfect in every port, even a bit of fog one day for variety. We enjoyed ourselves and will continue to sail Celebrity. I think we may prefer the solstice class ships, only because their design and technology have evolved. You lose just a bit of the intimacy, but hey, everything's a trade-off. Read Less
