Sail Date: Mar 2004
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2B

This sailing was the repositioning cruise from South America to Florida and was the last sailing before the Infinity was put into drydock for "propulsion" problems. We had originally booked this cruise for two reasons. First we had done the trip around Cape Horn two years ago so wanted to "finish" off SA. Second, life had been pretty hectic so we thought this would be a good cruise since there weren't a lot of ports. The ports were all important since they were in countries we hadn't been to before. So we were just a little disappointed that Celebrity chose to drop one of four ports and that was Manta, Ecuador. This was the one port that we would have liked to have seen and when combined with another unfortunate experience meant we were on board for 7 straight days. Even for experienced cruisers this is a long time to be "captive" on a ship. Even with all the activities that the ship's staff managed to come up with, we found it was just a little boring and a tad repetitive after 4 or 5 days!!

As for the rest of the cruise and the ship - we found the embarkation and disembarkation process to be the best that we had ever experienced. We have sailed before on Princess, Holland America, Norwegian, and RCCL but Celebrity beat all of them hands down. From the time we arrived at the dock in Valparaiso till we were eating lunch in the Oceanview Cafe was about 20 minutes. And their disembarkation without announcements is a joy!!

We had a balcony cabin (I know they prefer to call them staterooms) that was more than adequate. The bed was comfortable, there was lots of storage space, and the bathroom was larger than any other we had encountered on a ship. We enjoyed having our breakfast delivered to the stateroom and sitting outside in the mornings.
