Celebrity Infinity So.America-Antarctica

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Buenos Aires
A little about us, past cruisers on other lines (Carnival,Princess,HAL,RCI) first time on a Celebrity ship. The ship is in nice condition and our room was very since we got upgraded (thank you Celebrity) from OV to veranda. Really enjoyed watching the waves go by from our veranda and the room was very nice. We got onto to the ship in fifteen minutes even tho there were two other ships in port this day. We heard most others had to wait much longer boarding times but we were lucky since we arrived at the port early. In Buenos Aires one must check in the board a bus to get to the ship this is a working port. The weather going south was nice and even crossing the Drake passage went smoothly. Antarctica was very nice and we saw many seals, whales and penguins. Many ice bergs floated past our ship and we had nice weather except for some fog. Heading north we stopped at the Falkland Islands and did a penguin tour there, great place to visit. And wished we had more time More there...

The Ship
We ate most dinners in the MDR and we were happy with most meals there, the buffet was okay for lunch but did get a little crowded on sea days around noon. The burger grill made great burgers and hot dogs and sandwich place at the end of the buffet was very good too. The only issue we had with food was eating breakfast in the MDR, twice we had cold food that should have been hot so stopped eating in there for breakfast. The entertainment was nice and we enjoyed most of the shows. The ship didn't have a movie theater and missed that but they did have movies in the staterooms for rent. My only complaints were that this ship didn't have a walk around deck, no way to walk around w/o taking the stairs to make a complete circle. We took this cruise for the opportunity to see Antarctica and Celebrity provided that and will try another Celebrity cruise in the future. Last item, we cruised with our 13 yr. old son and the teen center was closed for this cruise because there were enough teens on board, I understand Celebrity can't control how many teenagers on board but wished they offered something else for my son. Teenagers don't want to play games with small children and this was all that was available to our son. Less

Lots of nice buildings to see but a little dirty and run down in certain areas and needed to be careful in others...

Nice city with great Arg. Beef, had lunch and enjoyed walking around and shopping here.

Nice little town with lots to see, didn't do a tour here but heard the park was very nice and others mentioned it was very pretty
