A very nice ship with poor food and service

|

We were on a combined visit to Easter Island (which was superb) and then a cruise from Chile to San Diego. We were very happy with our stateroom, which was spacious, very comfortable and had an excellent balcony and ...

The cruise was pleasant enough but when we returned home we found our MasterCard had been charged for an unidentified item. Contacting Celebrity they informed us the charge was for items used from the mini bar. We, ...

Cruise on the infinity for the itinerary, not for the ship

The infinity is definitely showing some age, some rust here and there, some fraying fabric on chairs and probably the most obvious is the state of the cabin bathrooms which are really in need of some overhaul. On ...

Where Is The Modern Luxury?

We usually cruise with Royal Carribean, but this itinerary appealed to us as a way back from a South America trip, so we decided to see what Modern Luxury is all about while wearing our Diamond Plus Royal Caribbean ...

Average in almost every way

We chose this cruise because we heard it had scenery like you would see on a cruise to Alaska. Similar, but certainly not better. While we enjoyed each port for different reasons and the excursions offered by ...

South America is an interesting to learn about

Wanted to visit Chile, Peru and Ecuador. Weather was perfect and the seas calm all the way. Embarkation in Valparaiso was something! Remember embarkations like that YEARS and years ago! Happy it wasn't ...

Norovirus on this Ship

Usually really enjoy Celebrity cruises but this one was just average. The worst part was that the ship got the norovirus and lots of things changed because of this. There were a lot of sick people. They had to ...

Blu made the cruise

I booked this cruise because I was told that we would be going through the New Canal but we did not. I would not have gone because it was my third time through the Panama and one of the other times was on the ...

Beware when traveling Celebrity

My husband and I have cruised many times on many different lines, but up until now Celebrity was always our favorite. We chose this cruise because it was going through the Panama Canal and traveling up the Pacific ...

Interesting itinerary; so-so ship

We invited 4 other couples to accompany us on the Valparaiso to Buenos Aires cruise but later felt we owed them an apology. The positives: interesting itinerary, excellent weather (calm seas--even at Cape Horn--and ...

I have done this cruise with Celebrity before and this second time around was a bit disappointing. However, embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly, the Cabin was clean, dining room service and menu good (our ...

Would not go again.

Celebrity Infinity is not looking its best. Rust stains all over the exterior don't make for a good first impression. The inside is very dated, clean but certainly not glamorous or chic. The dining in the Trellis ...

The ship is looking a bit tired in parts but it is now 14 years old and celebrity are doing well in keeping it looking good. I just wish they did not try ans squeeze in so many alternative premium dining venues. ...

If you are sailing as an Elite member you will certainly enjoy the onboard activities, specifically for members. But since they are so blatant, they put off first time cruises to Celebrity. More than once we were ...

Slipping Toward Mediocrity?

The Infinity is definitely a half-step below Celebrity's other Millennium class ships.  Maybe 'slipping toward mediocrity' is more descriptive.  Had this been a Carnival or NCL cruise I would be pleasantly ...
