There is something magical about a cruise vacation, especially when you are looking forward to meeting over 250 people you have been corresponding with for over a year on Cruise Critic. Therefore, when Gerald and I (ages 52 and 50) saw Infinity cruising slowly up to the pier in San Diego on a rainy Sunday, December 5 for our 15 day round-trip cruise to Hawaii, we knew we were in for a special trip. Having just returned, I can only say that we were not disappointed!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was pretty much a painless experience. Although we were not scheduled to board the ship until 3 p.m., we arrived around 1 p.m. and were able to check in quickly and efficiently. Since a number of people had arrived at the port even earlier, and the ship had just pulled into port, we did have to wait for about 20 minutes before we were allowed to board.
