Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2B

Reading some reviews of Infinity I was expecting to be a little disappointed but delighted to say that my lowered expectations were well exceeded in most areas.

Reaching Harwich was a pain, needing a train and platform change at Manningtree - not fun with luggage and must be awful for anyone with mobility issues. Boarding simple and painless and the cabin was very quickly available. No surprises and everything seemed to be in working order, although the balcony was in need of a good clean and paint job. Deck 9 cabins have a large overhang making the balcony a shady retreat rather than a sun trap. Ideal for very hot cruises but not so great if you are expecting to get a tan!

Weather was wet and cool to start, getting worse but only to be expected in October in the Channel and Bay of Biscay. Heavy swell and high winds combined to make the Captain abandon the passage in to Lisbon and divert to Ponta Delgada in the Azores. A treat for some but not for all. Hurricane Gonzalo hit Bermuda and our scheduled stop there was not confirmed for a couple of days. It appears that we were much better off on the Infinity than back at home.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2B

Cabin 2B

Adequate space, decor OK (except balcony), all in working order.Perfect location for access from forward lifts & easy walk down from forward Lounge. Long walk to & from dining but that's a bonus!Serious overhang to the balcony makes daytime sunbathing not possible, although sunsets enjoyable, depending on ship's heading.High and forward location made ship's motion quite obvious but never any external noise.Would seek a cabin with no balcony overhang in future but otherwise very happy with what we got.
