Chose this cruise to see Alaska and the Hubbard Glacier. The Infinity is an older and smaller ship than others we'd been on and certainly had less to offer than the bigger ships. The main dining area felt claustrophobic and the buffet area was very difficult to maneuver through when busy. The cabin was clean but smaller than we'd had on previous Celebrity cruises. Entertainment was always great. We used the on board internet services once and found the IT person very abrupt and not helpful at all. The remaining wait staff are always amazing but some of the shore excursions the ship recommended were very disappointing. One advertised as 'The Ultimate Hubbard Glacier Experience' was dismal. We boarded a private tour operators boat but were only out for half the time. We experienced no wildlife, no large icebergs, minimal commentary from a supposed 'Naturalist' and certainly did not get the exclusive, up close and personal viewing of the glacier that we were promised as the ship itself, came within the same distance from the glacier that we did. This excursion was not cheap and we felt really ripped off. So word of warning...don't assume that all the tours the cruises promote are what they say they are and worth the money you pay for them.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 1
Cabin C1 2212
Cabin was clean but a lot smaller than the equivalent on other ships. Bed was a bit too firm and pillows way too soft for our liking but there was no other choices available. Bathroom was workable.
