Celebrity Infinity Cruise Review by jaf24
- Sail Date: May 2012
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2B
Our cabin had a veranda and was standard for the same category on other ships. The stateroom attendants did a good job of keeping the bathroom clean and well supplied. Since we were with a large group (300) our dining room assignment was a section and not a specific table. However, all of the waiters we had did a very good job and were very informative and attentive. The Cruise Director's staff were outstanding, better than most and were very engaged with the guests. The production number shows were good, the comedians and magician kind of weak.
We enjoyed all four ports and had good shore excursions in Ketchikan and Skagway. However, if we were to take this trip again we would select a different itinerary, as there was too long a time at sea and too little time in Victoria, BC. The only really bad experience that we had was with the hairdresser in the salon. I had scheduled an appointment to have my hair put up on formal night since I had forgotten the necessary items to do it myself. I had a very good manicure and then the stylist started to work on my hair. She did not have a clue what she was doing and I ended up going back to my cabin to take a lot of it out and try to repair the damage before dinner which made us late and spoiled our evening. We didn't even get our picture taken.
Overall it was a good trip, just not as nice a ship as we had been led to believe. If we were going to try Celebrity again it would need to be a different ship and itinerary. The people were good, the ship was only okay. A solid experience but nothing spectacular.

Mendenhall GlacierThey take you to a glacier viewing area by bus, however they do not allow enough time to walk down to a waterfall which is the closest you can get to the glacier. If you attempt this you definitely cannot go into the visitor's center. Our tour included a visit to a garden center with an overlook which was a waste of time except for the blueberry hot chocolate which was excellent.View All 649 Mendenhall Glacier Reviews
Bering Sea Crab Fisherman's TourWonderful crew sharing their experiences and a glimpse into the life of a fisherman on a crab boat. Actual equipment that is used as well as a chance to see and touch many things that are fished for in the sea. Also a spectacular view of eagles in flight very close to the boat.View All 94 Bering Sea Crab Fisherman's Tour Reviews

VictoriaHad a private party here in a very nice museum and took a short walk around town. It looked to be a very nice town, but we only had limited time there.View All 958 Victoria Cruise Port Reviews
