We have been on two cruises to Alaska but never in the summer. Whilst overall the cruise was very good some things on Infinity need attention. Cabins need updating. We were on the Infinity about 5 years ago and the cabins were still the same. We booked an Aqua class cabin and this entitled us to eat In the Blu restaurant. I cannot praise Blu highly enough. The food, staff and service were all excellent. We tried the buffet restaurant a couple of times and it was awful. Much of the food was spicy. Not a great choice. Not enough tables. We went in the Trellis restaurant only once and once was enough. The waiter was very aggressive. We waited a long time for our food. We booked three excursions and all were well run. Whale watching in Icy Straight Point, Gold panning and salmon bake in Juneau. Lumberjack show ( we have been to this show 3 times and still enjoy it) and Potlach Park in Ketchikan. We had plenty of time at all the destinations. Overall we enjoyed the cruise but te ship needs updating.

Cabin Review

Aqua Class
Cabin A2 9048
Cabin is a little outdated but our stateroom attendant was excellent. During the week as various times we arrived at the cabin to find fruit or other little snacks left for us. Being in Aqua class entitled us to eat in Blu restaurant. Having read before that Blu was the healthy alternative we were a bit apprehensive. We needn't have worried. The food, the staff, the service all were excellent.

  • Whale Watching
    We were lucky and saw Hump Backed whales and Orcas.

  • Gold Panning
    The gold panning was at a creek and it was a lovely setting. The staff were all very helpful. We then went on to the Salmon Bake. Lovely food in a secluded setting. All in all a good trip.

  • Lumberjack Show
    This was the 3rd time we had been to the Lumberjack Show and still enjoyed it. Well worth a trip especially if you have children with you.

  • Potlatch Park
    Lots of interesting totem poles and buildings in a lovely setting. Plenty of time to walk around. Unfortunately doing both excursions meant that we didn't have much time in Ketchikan.
