1.) Our room and the total ship, for that matter, is very "tired". We actually traveled on the Infinity in 2004 and don't believe any updates have been made since then (dramatization on my part). The crew we talked to stated a retro is due in October, but that didn't help us for now. Every passenger we spoke to about the ship stated the same thing, ship needs help.
2.) No Captain's Club for check in on pier.
3.) No Aqua Class check in.
4.) Captain's Club desk onboard only open a couple of hours each day
5.) The onboard stage entertainment was poor. The only opportunity possible for a mix was when a comedian was scheduled and then canceled the day before. The substitution was for the same singer we had the previous evening and, although talented, began getting a bit redundant. The idea of "mixing it up" came with cycling in the Celebrity Entertainers. The small combos performing at the bars, were good, on the other hand.
6.) Due to our special dates, my 70th birthday and wife's 64th, both happening during the cruise, we must say that we probably enjoyed this Celebrity cruise the least of those in the past.
7.) The staff ship wide was probably only 25% sincere. Didn't get a real friendly feeling from the majority of our contacts.
1.) Aqua Class was a cruise saver. Aside from the room condition, everything else was terrific. The Blu Room for Aqua Class meals was wonderful. The help was 100% sincere, starting with the front check in down to the whole room staff. Never had to wait for a table and crew attempted to meet whatever requests we may have had.
2.) The included spa steam rooms were a great plus after using the attached gym.
3.) The gym is laid out well the machines all function correctly.
4.) The two specialty restaurants we visited were both great. We did see that one of the ones we didn't try, was the Sushi restaurant. Every time we walked by, there was nobody present to dine. We think they might want to look into replacing with another type.
Our cabin attendant was very "attentive". We had one request, ice at four pm daily, he never missed. He did his best to make the room look good, but carpets and sofa really needed replacement yesterday. There was rust on the balcony paint. Definitely not much to get excited about.
