A superb itinerary visiting an amazing array of wonderful places. This itinerary has it all: nature, wildlife, beaches, exciting cities and, of course, Cape Horn. The Infinity is a very well designed and well maintained ship, similar to the more recent Solstice class ships but not quite as good. Very friendly officers and crew and possibly the best cruise director in the industry, Alejandro.

However, Celebrity continues to "dumb down" the main dining room quality. We were disappointed with Grand Epernay on the Solstice in 2012, only to find the Trellis on Infinity was worse. More like "modern mediocrity" than "modern luxury." Food is generally unimaginative, often lacking in taste and with an absence of flair. Service is sometimes very good, sometimes indifferent. Even when menu items look interesting, the execution is often poor. Overall, the main dining room is no better than on mainstream lines. While we never experienced the Celebrity of 10 or more years ago when their main dining room was the talk of the industry, we can only sympathize with repeat Celebrity customers who must be heartbroken.

On the bright side, specialty restaurants, SS United States and Qsine are exceptional from every standpoint. It's a shame, however, that we need to pay $45 per person to get an outstanding meal that one should expect to get (and based on Celebrity passengers of 10 years' ago) and used to get "for free."

Cabin Review

Outstanding, spacious cabin, with separate area for the kids and huge rear facing balcony. Excellent value. A bit noisy (furniture moving) on 9 deck since under Sunset bar so in hindsight 8 deck or 7 deck equivalents might be better.
