This was our 5th cruise , 2nd on celebrity , we've also been on NCL, and carnival,, We were shocked at all the different ages onboard compared to our 1st celebrity cruise but im so glad we went... Heres my review as short and sweet as I can make it
BOOKING- we called and booked the cruise through celebrity directly on 12/12/06 this was after kauai was already cancelled,then we received a call in march stating that some times would be changed in hilo and honolulu. and that they were offering 200$ ship credit for people in insides .. this was a great thing on celebrity's part, it was generous of them to do this.
EMBARKATION AND GETTING THERE - Port of san diego We live in northern ca so we drove down to san diego to board the infinity for our 14 day adventure of a lifetime. we stayed 1 day before at the super8 motel in the little italy district of san diego. For the price of 80$ per night, the hotel was very accommodating, and comfortable. We decided to go to the cruise terminal around 11am to see if they were checking people in yet, so we pulled up to drop off my mom who is in a wheelchair and the security guard said, sorry no dropoffs yet. come back in 1 hr.. so we pulled out , into all the traffic again, found somewhere to park for 1 hr and then went back, we were told the same thing again, come back at 100p, I said ok,, so we went and parked by the airport on the side road where there was a portipotty in case we needed it . then we headed back over to the cruise terminal at 115p and we were told that they still weren't dropping off. So we went to lane field to park our car, and decided to walk over. We hired a bike carriage to take all of our luggage , so my husband could push my mom in her wheelchair . after all of this , the walk was short, everything was close. then we headed to get checked in. Celebrity had people waiting there for wheelchair assistance and they were great with my mom. Checking in was a breeze, it took only about 30 minutes. And when we were checking in they gave my daughter a wristband to wear for the kids club, that says the muster station she needs to be at in case of emergency, I thought this was great. So we headed up to our rooms on board this beautiful ship and then we were ready to eat..
