Review for Celebrity Infinity to Panama Canal & Central America

Embarkation at San Diego was not a problem, and we were onboard for 12.30 and had nice lunch and a couple of drinks. Got to our room for 1.30 and bags arrived soon after. The ship looked in reasonable condition, although you can always pick faults if you wish to. Food was very good, plenty of choice, both in the Oceanview and the MDR. Never needed to wait long before getting served at any bar. All ...

Panama Canal all the way. This was a Celebrity that left from San Diego and finished in Miami. I wanted to see the new locks. I had toured the old Canal 10 years ago, and the engineering of the new canal was fascinating. Celebrity has been our regular line and the Infinity had good reviews. Embarking was a disaster at San Diego....disorganized to the extreme. The cabins are very tired and old in ...

We recently finished the 15 night cruise from Miami to San Diego through the Panama Canal. The Infinity was in very good shape especially as she to due to have many improvements made in the next 30 days. Yes the ship has some tired areas, cabin showers, carpet in high traffic areas, & painting the hull & other work areas. However this did not bother us & we found this crew very engaging & happy to ...

We joined this cruise following a repositioning cruise. Too many things went wrong, Our excursion on Panama was ruined by our terrible coach which broke down. First replacement coach as bad, 3rd time lucky. However, the excursions team did not want to hear our complaints. The cabin was pleasant and well looked after by the young gentleman who was swift to resolve any issues. The ...

We chose this cruise because of the itenerary which included Cartagena, Panama and Costa Rica which we had never visited. Our cabin was fine size for us with ample storage space, having learned from previous trips to be a bit more practical in packing. Our steward, Francisco, was always available and took really good care of us and the cabin. We usually ate in the main dining room and the ...

Great Cruise on Celebrity Infinity

As for many cruisers, going through the Panama Canal was a bucket list cruise - it was great. We choose Celebrity because we love all the ships and the level of service. The Infinity is almost 20 years old but Celebrity has done a great job keeping it current. The MDR service with Edgar as our waiter and Mercy as Sommelier were excellent - the food was perfect for all of us. The stateroom service ...

This was our first Celebrity cruise, chosen for the itinerary more than for the ship itself, although it was relevant to us that Infinity was small enough to fit in the 'old' locks which we wanted to travel through rather than the new ones. The embarkation process was relatively quick and painless. We found the staff onshore and onboard to be generally friendly. The ship isn't big by today's ...

Aging ship and older passengers but still a lot of fun

This was a cruise of “firsts” for us: First time cruising the Panama Canal, first time booking a stateroom guarantee, the first time flying in on embarkation day, and first time doing Silent Disco. It was a very good cruise but the Infinity is showing her age and so are the majority of passengers on this cruise (which we expected since not many working people can take 15 days vacation at one ...

We chose this cruise because of the Panama Canal transit and pretty much for no other reason or ports, as well as prior, good experiences with Celebrity. Overall, the experience and ship were very good. The Infinity is a nice size without feeling overwhelmed or overcrowded. We were a little concerned as the ship is getting older and is scheduled to be redone in 2020, but it was well-maintained ...

This was a birthday celebration cruise and a trip through the Panama Canal, one that we have never taken. We arrived in San Diego on October 9th from Phoenix Arizona and went from the airport right to the terminal. San Diego's cruise terminal is rather dated and could use some modernization. We were in a Suite and are Elite members so we went through the check in line quickly. We then, however ...
