  3. Celebrity Infinity
We arrived at the port at 2:15 PM and went directly through to registration in no time at all. Been on other cruises and were in the initial wave of boarders at 1:00PM, later is better. The Infinity is an older ship but even if the decor is dated it is very well kept and all areas are clean. We had the concierge class and were satisfied with the cabin size and amenities. Had room service for breakfast every day-Excellent. We did not have the most pleasant experience with the dining. First, our table was on the 4th deck in the rear. Everything was all crammed together. The night when the baked alaska march of the wait staff & chefs was held we could not see a thing until our waiter came by our table. At the Seaday Brunch (crablegs galore) we showed up at 12:00 noon(it started at 10:00) and were told to go up to the next level dining room and go down to level four, get your food and bring it back up to your table. We complained, but were told that a lot of people show up for these brunches.Oh, there were available tables on the lower level, they didn't want to open that side. The dining room breakfasts were the same - jam everybody in the tables by the entrance. P.S. the food on this cruise was just average. The deserts did not measure up to Royal Caribbean or Princess. On a positive note, all the personnel on the Infinity were very courteous, helpful and pleasant. The entertainment was okaycomedian(so-so) magician(poor) lounge musicians(very good)Singer & Dancers shows( very good). The excursions to Butchart Gardens, the Duck tour in Ketchican and the Tram ride in Juneau are a must. The best new thing is Valet Luggage when leaving the cruise. Best $40. ever spent.The reason we rated the cruise down, we were always told by travel agents that Celebrity Line was a notch above the rest. We found that not to be the case.

Celebrity is good but over-rated

Cabin Review

Cabin 8143
Bathroom a bit larger than most. Good size shower. The old 19" television set is a joke for a cruise line that is supposed to be a cut above.
