Celebrity Infinity Cruise Review by TangerineWillow
- Sail Date: June 2018
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Ocean View 7
Embarking was poor, bad organisation by staff,then the pain of imigration meant this process took a long time. That was our only criticism.
The ship is oldish but the interior was in good condition, our cabin on deck seven an outside cabin was fine and well looked after by our steward Douglas who managed the area with humour as well.
Celebrity always provide the best food on the seas, and they did not disapoint, great selections at breakfast, lunch and dinner in the MDR. The buffet upstairs was the usual scrum, tables being hogged by groups just wanting a chat. Not fair but also not managed by staff who should move them on. Our waiter Ben was pribably the best yead tabke waiter we have ever had, always served with a smile, offerred recomendations, extras and he and Sity looked after us so well. Ben even looked out for us at breakfast and lunch. A real star. Shubert our wine sommelier was also superb, always at the table when you needed him and ensured that the wines we wanted under our package were available.
Entertainment was excellent, the theartre group were superb and we attended all of there shows, just one mail with a dodgy voice. Motown group on day one and a Frankie Valley group were also excellent, no complaints on entertainment.
The highlight was the SILENT DISCOS, wow, headphones to select music, well attended on both evenings, just take your sets of to hear people singing out loud to three different music offerings, what a treat and we hope Celebrity have these events on all ships.
The entertainment manager worked tirelesly to keep everyone happy.
Ports of call, well this was Alaska. First stop was Icy Strait Point,they have made every effort to provide a nice port area, nice walking area to a few shops and museum, nice bar. Four of our group tried the worlds highest and fastest Zip wire rider. We were well looked after, felt safe and wow the ride was exhillerating. People of all ages participated. Ourvother two went whale watching and had whales dancing and jumping around the boat. Great trips and recomended.
Juneau, well we decided to get a taxi to the glacier and falls, we found a lady at the port entrance who arranged it for us, Tracey the cab driver did not speak, never smiled but took us there and returned at the exact time we agreed, a short walk to the falls and glacier,very impressive. In town the shops were open and were ok.
Ketchican, well who doesnt like a lumberjack show, but pricey and cheesey but we had a laugh. Then to the local fun bar.
Hubbard Glacier day, well thats one to remember, captain got us so close. The air was so fresh and the views we will never forget.
Disembarkation was much easier.
A superb cruise and Celebrity rule the waves for us
