  3. Celebrity Infinity
We are Diamond cruisers on Royal Caribbean. Therefore we were able to join Celebrity as Elite Captain Club members. So we wanted to try Celebrity to see how it compares to Royal Caribbean. We were extremely disappointed. The Celebrity Infinity has the potential to be a beautiful ship. Unfortunately it has not been properly maintained since it was launched in 2001. The ship looked drab and it never smelled fresh. The service in the dining room was the worst we have ever experienced, partly because there were not enough waiters to properly serve the guests. The food was bland, the selection was limited, especially the breads, and dinner took almost two hours every night - a real endurance contest. The buffet options were dismal - don't even think about eating any breads, pastries or donuts. We experienced raw sewer smells in our cabin on three nights which woke us from a deep sleep. Our cabin steward was one of the nicest stewards we have encountered. Our cabin was very nice, though dated and in dire need of a refurbish. We will not cruise on Celebrity again.

Wait for the 2020 Refurbish

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2B
Cabin 2B 6046
The cabin was very spacious. The bed was comfortable. The air in the room was never fresh, even with the balcony door open. The layout of the bathroom was very nice. The couch was only big enough for one person to sit, so my wife sat on the couch and I sat in the desk chair or on the balcony. There were only two power outlets in the cabin. The cabin showed many signs of wear and tear. However our cabin steward was excellent!
