  3. Celebrity Infinity
After several cruises with Celebrity including some in Aqua class on Solstice class ships and the Millennium class Constellation the back to back cruises of 14 days in Aqua on the Infinity were only average and did not rise to the level of our other trips. Dining- Blu was only average for food quality and our service time was very long until we found a really good waiter (Armando). Dining room seemed undersized for the # of cabins and had to wait much more often than Solstice ships. Ate at Qsine twice, once each for lunch and dinner, and it was outstanding. The Oceanview Cafe buffet was quite limited and offered the same choices virtually every day. Some of the serving pans were very hard to reach and the staff seemed in no rush to keep them fresh. The poached egg station was good with the eggs cooked to order well. Cabin 9106- All Aqua 2 cabins are under the Lido deck so noise can be a problem. This particular cabin was under a prep area so there was a lot of after hours noise. Location was good. Cabin had good storage and size was adequate. Could have used a shower head with a stronger stream. Entertainment- Theater acts were all good with a couple of very good production shows. Lounge music was not to our liking with no string groups as other Celebrity ships and the bands were more of the " party" variety than dance bands. Piano and guitar vocalists were poor to average. Almost no afternoon musical entertainment except on pool deck. Spa- Persian Garden was a disappointment compared to Solstice class. It was in the middle of the ship, small and dark. No lounges, only a kind of "sofa" which we both found uncomfortable. The Thessalotherapy pool in the solarium was very relaxing (it is open to all guests). Bars- Bar service was mostly slow usually from under staffing as was the Cafe al Bacio. Table service was slow to nonexistent. On the whole an adequate experience, but would not rush to sail the Infinity again soon and certainly not pay extra for Aqua class. One thing I have noticed on all Celebrity ships in the past is that the officers were very visible throughout the cruise and interacted a lot with the guests about their experience. I saw very little or none of that aboard the Infinity. As a whole the crew was polite, but not particularly friendly. Training seemed to be lacking and communication was sometimes a problem.

Good, but did not meet our expectations.

Cabin Review

Aqua Class
Cabin A2 9106
Cabin 9106- All Aqua 2 cabins are under the Lido deck so noise can be a problem. This particular cabin was under a prep area so there was a lot of after hours noise. Location was good. Cabin had good storage and size was adequate. Could have used a shower head with a stronger stream. Average size balcony with good visibility due to supports being further apart and less overhang.
