We chose the cruise because we wanted to sail the Panama Canal. Yes, the Infinity is one of the older ships in the fleet but is well kept. Nothing to keep me from the enjoying the cruise. Embarkation-Lines seemed to be longer than usual. I thought Captain club elites had some sort of priority embarkation but I did not see it. The Panama was the main attraction and the day long passage was well narrated. That was the best part. We did not especially enjoy the other ports and I will briefly mention them. Cayman Islands-Had to be tendered in. The port has become a dwelling place for all of the companies that line most of the cruise ports now. That is one of my pet peeves. They edge out what we came for Manta--The offers a free shuttle to to a square that offers all sort of local trinkets to buy. Included are Panama hats for $20 up. American dollars are accepted. If you did not purchase an excursion, then taxis are offered to the Monticristo around $20 but is negotiable. Took a picture of the Manta sign. Note-much of the Pacific coast was recently devastated by earthquakes a year or so ago Lima-Ship docks at least a 45-60 minute ride provided by the ship-in heavy traffic. Free ship shuttle. You are dropped off at a very nice mall. There, you have to fight your way through a mob of people offering taxi services.-Beware. If you want a taxi walk through the mall to the other street to the real taxi stand. BEWARE-all taxi prices are negotiable and make sure they are talking about Sols or dollars. You can go to most areas that you want to travel for $10. But they may quote $30. They will take $10. One pretended he didn't have change and one slipped us a counterfeit bill as change. And they drive lake mad people. But we did see what we wanted. Pisco-You dock at the edge of a desert-Maybe 20 minutes out of town. We took the excursion to the Baracas islands and enjoyed. From there we could also see the Candleabra formation. That afternoon we took it he free shuttle into town-not Pisco but an area called El Chapo. Arica-The market featuring local items is located right off the dock. You can either hike or ride a taxi up the top of the large rock right beside (El Moro?) Sort of liked it. San Antonio-made arrangements with Viator for ride into Santiago and stayed for 3 nights. Cost $90 pp for 2 people. As low as $60 pp for 6 If there is no other opportunity, our cabin steward (Fatkul) was very good. The food in the Blu was great and the service in there was special. All of the staff works in tandem. Entertainment-Mostly very good. The comedian and the juggler-comedian were the best. The magician was average at best. There was a lounge style singer one night that was not good at all. The impersonator was good. The shades Bluble" On the first night were good. Male pianist was good. Female pianist great talent, but I did not especially enjoy the arrangements . The violinist was very entertaining. The Whitney Houston singer was good. There was some male gaucho type dancers on the last night that grew old after a while. Lastly, The ship dancers and singers As well as the aerialists were good. I have probably missed some. Stayed in Aqua room. Will return Feb 23 to almost same cabin for the Antartica cruise. Disembarking-Was off the ship and through customs in minutes. Our driver was waiting. Positives-I was pleased with the value of my cruise. I bought it long ago and we paid several thousand less than some in the same type room. Shop wisely. Negatives-Why does this ship as well as most others have Park West art auctions that basically offers up crap that they call art? Why would anyone purchase diamonds,jewelry and other stuff on board that is as cheap or cheaper at your own home. Example-Jack Daniels was $25 on board and $20 at a drug store at home. Read Less

I'll try to go from start to finish: Pre-Cruise: We arrived in Fort Lauderdale a few days early. We were flying on points so this was the best date we could get. We stayed at Embassy Suites and when we arrived to drop our bags at 12 our room was ready! Bonus. Great place to stay, near lots of restaurants, shopping and the port. We took the water taxi and enjoyed hopping on and off. We ended up taking the shuttle to the port because it was there. It would have been cheaper to take a taxi. Embarkation: If you were concierge class and above, then embarkation would have been a quick and smooth experience. If you were in steerage, then embarkation took over an hour for some. We arrived at 11:15 and were in line for one hour. Some people were in much longer. Cabin: We had the best cabin steward ever - Edy! Our veranda cabin was kept spotless. He didn't bother us when the do not disturb sign was on but managed to clean it when we were out. We love balconies and used it a lot. Activities: I found enough to keep busy. I enjoyed the lectures but some were way too early - 9 am! It would have been cool to have the lecture on the night sky up on the rooftop terrace in the evening. We participated in a few activities, I did the blendtique workshop - a bit rushed but I enjoyed it. I also participated in the Old World wine tasting. People weren't really tasting but gulping the wine like no tomorrow, some pretty happy folks afterwards. I managed to go to the very nice but crowded at times gym. Well equipped and everyone using it was very considerate. Dining: We had anytime dining, some nights we sat with strangers, others we sat with cruise critic friends. The food and service was hit or miss. The menu was a bit boring IMO. We did QSine with others from Cruise Critic...great service, great food - just too much of it. Our waiter did a great job managing all of us. One night hubby and I went to Tuscan Grill - we enjoyed the food and service. We did the buffet a few nights, just didn't feel like sitting and eating for 2 hours. Very good. Ports: Ok here is a word of caution. We had an active roll call. Two members offered some tours at pretty good prices. I signed us up. There were some odd things - the organizers wanted payment up front on the second sea day. They didn't show up to the cruise critic gathering. Usually the organizers ask for payment on the day of the tour and make an effort to show up the cruise connections party or the sailaway. Everyone else had similar suspicions. I sign up for the roll call tours as they are usually a smaller group. I should have checked when I kept seeing openings offered, but I assumed others had cancelled. Turns out that there were 3 - 4 busses on these tours! None of the busses saw the same things. Some were very upset, I could have let myself get upset (DH was!) but made the best of it. Note to self, check the numbers before you sign up. Grand Cayman: We didn't organize anything as we've been here before. The ship had to tender us to a different dock due to "high waves". But all the taxies and busses were waiting. We ended up near Calico Jacks. 2 loungers and an umbrella cost $15. The van was $7 each. We got a bucket of beers and had a pleasant day at the beach. Panama Canal: Amazing. The ship would not let people on the helipad at first due to the rain, but didn't mind crowds balancing precariously on the stairs! I was watching the helipad situation on the TV, as soon as I saw officers posing for photos, I knew they would open it. Being on deck 6, I went to the boarding area in the Theatre on Deck 5 and was one of the first on! Great day, we had a good lecuturer explaining the sites. I walked all over the ship taking photos, front and back. The roof top terrace was also an uncrowded but great spot to take photos. Manta, Ecuador: One of the roll call tours. The hike in the rain forest was good but may have been physically taxing for some. We saw and heard the monkeys. It was at the Pachoce Nature reserve. Then a quick drive to Montechristi, sadly we did not get out at the site overlooking the town. But did have 45 minutes to explore and shop in town. Lima, Peru: Well if you weren't on a ship tour, things were challenging. Private tours were not permitted in port. They had the choice of meeting you at a shopping mall 30 minutes away or at a taxi stand just outside the port. The guide thought it was best to meet 3 busloads worth of people at the taxi stand. However the port shuttle had two vans holding 8 people! You can imagine the line. In the end, Celebrity provided the bus to ease the line up. The taxi stand wasn't in the nicest of areas. The next day we arranged to meet the tour at the mall. Much better. However on day 2, many of the group members skipped the tour. Too bad, day 2 was much better then day 1. Pisco, Peru: I semi-arranged a flight over Nazca Lines. Due to all the personal information required for the flight, I just had everyone contact the operator themselves. Our favourite part of the cruise! You read about them, but once you see them - they are amazing. We had to retrieve our passports from Guest Services, we got them right away the day before, others had to battle it out. We were in a 12 seat Cessna - good thing I took some Dramamine! On the way back we stopped to take photos of a flock of flamingos. We had the option to get off in Paracas, but we were tired as there was more port stress, however I managed to tell the tour operator about it so they had everything arranged when we got off - they reserved a shuttle for our group of 10, which drove us 5 minutes to the parking lot where the van was waiting. Arrica - another roll call tour. But I really enjoyed it, a stroll up the coast - for some reason our group didn't get to see the caves - others did. But we went into the desert and visited an Olive Farm. San Antonio replaced Valpairiso. This time only one bus. We got to visit a winery, see around the area and have a great lunch at a little roadside restaurant. We all got dropped off at our various hotels before the rest were driven to the airport. We spent a 2 days in Santiago - I'd arranged some tours with Stamp's which went very well. Final Thoughts: The roll call was very active and the Cruise Connections party well attended. I met some great people and all in all I really enjoyed myself. You will encounter glitches when travelling, but if you don't make the best of it, then you will ruin your vacation. Read Less

We chose this cruise because it started in one place and ended in a different place. We spent a week in Chile prior to embarkation, and had a wonderful experience there. We had never been to South America before and wanted to get to know it, at least in a small way. In all, we were pleasantly surprised. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly... no lines of any significance. Timing is everything regarding embarkation. The ship was nice... well appointed and comfortable. The cabin was spacious... plenty of room for storage and living space.... the veranda was sufficiently large. Our cabin attendant was attentive and very efficient.... friendly as well. The food service people were also very attentive and helpful. However, the food itself left room for improvement. We did no specialty dining, only buffet and MDR. We only did the MDR twice.... it just wasn't up to what we had experienced on other cruises... RCL & NCL. We liked the rooftop terrace.... the movies were good. Entertainment was mixed.... better entertainment on other cruises. The "production" shows were very good, the individual entertainers were mixed. Luigi, the cruise director, was great. Gina was good with the trivia activities. We especially enjoyed various tastings given by Toby from Manchester in Cellar Masters.... his knowledge and presentations were great. The spa was good.... we got a subscription to the Persian Gardens and liked it very much! The shore excursions we took were well organized. The time we had in each port was too limited. We really enjoyed the Panama Canal.... crossing the equator... not so much. We had crossed it before.... but at 35,000 feet. The ship provided a lot of background on the Panama Canal, which made it more meaningful. A real positive was not being hounded by the ship's photography department... we really appreciated that! One last thing.... don't expect towel animals. And, this ship is not oriented for youngsters... no waterpark, no slide, etc. The average age for this cruise was in the 70's.... we felt young.

This trip was chosen because of its itinerary and starting point in Valparaiso, Chile. We upgraded to the highest balcony level but room 7112 was very tiny although the location was great. Really hard for two people to share the room, barely space to pass by each other at the foot of the bed. Next time we'll go Concierge Class to a slightly bigger space. The public spaces on this ship have been remodeled at some recent point and are spacious and lovely. Lots of spots to sit and look out at the beautiful ocean and fun ports. We especially loved Cafe al Bacio because the baristas have been well-trained and they pull terrific espressos and cappuccino drinks. Not so for any of the ports we visited in places that supposedly have great coffee. Embarkation was smooth and easy, but it took a long time and disembarkation was not well-organized. The cruise line lost a bottle of Pisco we bought in Chile that they were keeping for us. We will get a refund but it's not the same to buy it here in the US! The cruise director on this ship was Luigi, a young guy from the Dominican Republic with huge amounts of energy and charm. Everyone was encountered was friendly and helpful, and we even interacted a couple of times with senior staff who were delightful. Entertainment all 14 nights was excellent, with great singers, an unusual ventriloquist who was not what one expected, and a fabulous show on the last night. The one group we didn't like was a Canadian couple who had performed with Cirque de Soleil and did physical comedy that fell flat with this group. As for the ports: Arica, Chile is very small and poor, but the tour we went on, Taste of Arica, was actually fun. However, since there were 40 people and one guide, we definitely should have had little headsets so we could hear what she had to say. The tasting part came all at the end and we enjoyed mango and passion fruit juice, olive paste, some different cheeses, and jams. I would have loved to try things in the market as there were so many unusual and different foods we do not have in the US. Manta, Ecuador was also small and the tour of the Panama Hats workshops (all in the basement of people's houses; you'd never know they are there) was very interesting. We were told the cruise line doesn't have many options in some of these countries - if they want to stop, they pay hefty amounts and the countries think some of the small cities should get the benefit of cruise ships and tours. In Manta with the exception of watching the demonstration of hats and the making of jute bags, there was nothing else to do or see as there really is no city center, per se. I would have preferred a different port. Lima, Peru, and Cartagena, Colombia were both fun places to visit: lively, great food, interesting sights and we enjoyed two private tours with Viator. Colon is rather unattractive and not a place to linger - so we were glad to be on a tour of the beautiful colonial part of the city, to see the ruins from Captain Henry Morgan, and even to drive around the new Panama with all its skyscrapers. It's amazing that all of these towns had lots of traffic at all hours! Wish we could have docked in Panama City rather than Colon. Going through the Panama Canal was awesome - we were in front of the helipad at 6:30am and stood there for a couple of hours, spellbound. It was also beautiful cruising on the lake between the locks.

This was our first celebrity cruise and we selected it for the itinerary as we were planning a short visit to Chile. We spent time in Santiago, Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar before embarkation. The boarding process in Valparaiso was a bit confusing for our driver to find the correct gate. The main port and ship were much farther west than the port entrance. Once in the building we found a very short Aqua Class line and spend through checkin. We were very impressed by the cabin and our steward Noel. Daily canapes and iced tea were a nice afternoon touch. Infinity was in very nice shape. She is older and there is some rust, stains and worn areas. Throughout the cruise we saw staff repainting, cleaning and varnishing hand rails. They work hard to keep her in good shape. We enjoyed the common areas, theater and lounges. Again the staff is exceptional and makes you feel welcome, especially at the Oceanview bar. The buffet was fine for breakfast but dinner and lunch seemed too similar. We enjoyed the food but nothing was amazing. Blu was a wonderful dining experience. The setting and presentation of food were interesting and the meals were very good. We tried several enrichment lectures, games and trivia and found the staff eager to please and make sure we were having fun. There are also plenty of areas to relax and read or nap. With 7 sea days they had a lot of entertaining to do. Port visits were nice with some towns like Lima and Cartagena being excellent. We only took one Celebrity tour in Panama and it was fine. The Panama Canal was the highlight for me. I spent the whole day wandering and photographing. The narration provided by a guest speaker was ok but not available all through the ship. If you do the canal watch the first locks from your room or an aft area as the prime spots all fill up quickly. After the first set of locks many loose interest and the top deck, helo pad and other prime spots are wide open. We like this medium size ship and enjoyed our cruise with Celebrity. I can't speak for how it was better in the past but the staff makes everyone feel welcome and the ship is just fine. Read Less

We had previously cruised from Buenos Aires to Valpariso and were trying to complete the circle and cross the Equator by sea. Our cruises have mostly been with Celelbrity, RCL and Azamara but we have noticed a considerable drop in the quality of the food served. For example, on a cruise in hot climes one would not expect to have stewed meat on the menu every day in the Oceanview and they appear to be going for cheaper cuts than before. So far as the cabin was concerned, It was disappointng to have a duvet cover with an obvious tear in it and we were surprised the steward didn't notice it and change it. The cleanliness of our cabin was definitely not up to standard - I ran my finger over the top of the base of the bedside lamps and it was thick with dust and whilst I do not expect the carpets to be hoovered every day as I know these guys have a limited time to do everything but I think 3 dys without hoovering is bit too long and the reason I know this is because the bits I saw on the carpets did not disappear until after the 3rd day. Generally speaking I would say Celebrity are not the cruise company they used to be and are simply out to wring every penny out of its guests but I think they are probably not any different from any other cruise company. . .

This was a memorable cruise after completing our two week journey in Peru and Chile . My husband and I chose to discover Machu Picchu on our own prior to embarcation in Valparaiso. When we arrived at the port on embarkation day prepared to receive our seapass with our stateroom information in aqua class we soon realized we were upgraded to a Ski Suite , we were overjoyed , surprised , elated and ready for our South American / Panama Canal crusing experience. We really enjoyed the Luminae restaurant . The portions were spot on perfect , delicious and many varieties to choose from at breakfast , lunch and dinner . We did not take advantage enough of Micheals Club , another great relaxing area to meet great people . The entertainment was very good as well . What we really enjoyed with our new friends were the Silent Disco nights . Read Less

Nice itinerary for someone who has never traveled to South America or cruised through the Panama Canal. We chose this cruise because it had a good combination of days at sea and Port stops. The Infinity is an older ship and not as up to date at the Solstice Class of ships that Celebrity offers. The overall cruise was outstanding, the service,entertainment and cleanliness was top notch. It would have added to the cruise experience if Celebrity brought back music and entertainment in between the early and late seating's in the main areas of the ship. The Beyond the Podium series of lectures with Bill Fall and MickeyLive were excellent! Interesting and educational. Great way to spend an hour or two during the sea days. I have been on a number of Celebrity Cruises and I believe along with many of my ship mates that the entertainment on board was fantastic. The right combination of different acts, that were very entertaining. The food on board was adequate, about what you would expect on a cruise. I booked my own excursions and was very satisfied with the results for each port. The Ports for the most part were interesting especially Colon, where we took a tour of the Rainforest, the Canal, and other interesting sights in the area. The historic area of Cartagena was worthwhile and interesting. Manta, Equador not a highlight stop for this cruise. I enjoyed Arica Chile and the last stop of Valapariso. All in all a worthwhile cruise, and one I would HIGHLY recommend Read Less

Cruise was great value for the money. This was a good cruise but not excellent as our experience on Constellation and others. Food was good but not as good as other Celebrity cruises. Guest entertainment and speakers were very very good. We loved Bill Fall, Mickey Live and Dr Sherry. The only negative on entertainment was scheduling. We would have loved music more around the pool and more venues before dinner. The ports were great. We appreciated how celebrity would shuttle you to the center of town as it could be dangerous which was the case and many other cities. The celebrity excursions were hit in this. We left ours in Cologne Panama and it was a good dad considering we were out most of the day. Others had issues with the excursions and had to fight to get refunds from the excursions do not go as planned. Overall we thought the excursions were expensive for what you were actually getting. We recommend getting excursions on your own. Read Less

Had only been on a 3-day cruise years ago so this was a big cup hangs for me. Went with 5 girlfriends and we had a wonderful time. I want to mention we arrived in Santiago a day early and used that time to tour Santiago. The next day we toured in route to Valparaiso and in that city itself too as we did not board until after 3 pm. I highly recommend our guide and his team, Thomas Poussard www.chileprivatetours.com +56-9-81724441 Not only were we met at the airport, he took care of our luggage, got us to our hotel and after a brief break we started our tour. Thomas is fluent in English, French and Spanish..and I believe he speaks other languages as well. His driver, Jorge, a Chilean, was also excellent and safe. Thomas did an excellent job in selecting highlights for us to tour in Santiago, adjusted to our physical limitations as not all of us could do a lot of walking. I will use his Company again when I return to Chile. Back to Celebrity, this ship,is small compared to many, about 2100 passengers, and yet provides all the amenities you would expect. I could not have been happier with this second experience. The crew/staff were all, without exception, positive smiling people. Everyone wanted to be sure all of us were happy and well. I enjoyed the food and tried all the fare included restaurants, plus the Bistro on Five which was a nice change and not pricey. I like to do a water workout in the pool so was quite happy there was ample room for me each morning along with those who chose to do laps. The cruise director, Eddy, was and is a genuinely nice person who was always upbeat and available. His entertainment offerings were varied and I think covered many passengers likes. The resident musicians were outstanding and I don't say that lightly. This experience convinced me I want to do more cruising! Read Less

This was a great trip! We must add that meeting other Cruise Critic members really "made" the trip. We cannot encourage enough that you should use this service to meet and learn from others. The Infinity was just done over to bring it in line with the Solstice ships. The updates have certainly helped, but the ship still is not as quite as physically nice the new ones. With that said, this ship offers a wonderful experience to all that cruise on it. The staff is caring, and obviously well trained. Celebrity must treat them very well, as they are, almost to a man (or woman), happy to be working on the ship and for the line. I have on some of the other reviews some negatives about the food compared to the past. In my opinion, lots of folks think everything was better in the past. This ship offered way above average food. Was every meal a five star selection? No, of course not. Nor did we pay for five star food. We didn't see anyone that look emaciated, but rather most were just the opposite. The cruise gave us an opportunity to meet and see interesting places with interesting and nice people. Our cabin (lucky for us was a family room), was well serviced by well trained and super nice guys. The shows on board were fun. The entertainment director was the best we have seen on a cruise. The dining room staff, as well as the specialty restaurants staffs, actually made you feel like you were a guest. For those who enjoy laying out at the pool, there is a problem. The problem is that some guests have no consideration of others, and hog the lounges all day. This is not the ship's fault, and maybe some will learn better manners. Oh, kudos to the guys at the martini bar. Great fun to have them serve the drinks. Some of the boxes that needed to be checked really don't apply to this cruise. We have come as close as we can to answering them. Read Less

This was our (wife of 40 years!) first Celebrity cruise. We have travelled extensively in the last 30 years. Many river cruises, several transatlantics, a few med. cruises plus SCUBA diving all over the world, Aust. Tahiti, China etc. I booked this trip through an agent and paid a lot more than I would have if I had set it up myself. I'm getting lazy I guess. The worst part of the trip was the flights the agency booked. A 6AM from Newark to Miami at double what it should have cost. The flights home started at 9:30 PM. Because the flight started so late (off the ship at 8:30 AM) we booked an excursion at 189 per person, even though we had a transfer included. We then had a 5 hour wait at the airport! for a 8 hour flight to MIAmi. Changed planes AND AIRLINES in Miami, two hour layover, but they lost our bags anyway! I accept that this part was all my fault for trusting and NOT questioning the details from the agency. This agency had over 400 people on the boat! Before I left I checked this message board with the proverbial "can you bring alcohol on board?" Most people said yes, there is a two bottle rule...WRONG.... NO BOOZE is the rule period! But, I put three bottles of wine in my checked luggage and a bottle of booze. They are so busy getting you on the boat, all arrived in good condition. I gave one bottle to my cabin steward. Celebrity is marketed as "upscale". Nope, sorry, same as any other line we have been on. We have been on bigger ships and a few smaller, size does not matter! Dining room food was always good but never GREAT! Same as any up scale restaurant in the states with the exception of a few off the chart Michlin places. On three days there was a special brunch in the dining room (trellis) they were really good with an excellent variety. The deck 10 buffet was typical of most ships. Better than the Costa (2) we were on but not quite better than the Norwegian Jade we did a transatlantic on. Crew, wait staff etc, were all excellent. I've never had a really bad encounter on any ship. Ask and you shall receive. Our staff was perhaps not as experienced as some we have had but all you had to do was hint that something was not right and they tried to fix the problem. The ship had just spent two weeks in dry dock for "sprucing up" actually, I think it was a mechanical problem being fixed. The ship was clean but not spotless. We had no problem but we did hear other passengers complain about towels not being changed, floor dirty etc. WE did not see this but heard about it from unhappy passengers. A few GOOD things: On the last three cruises we were on, we spent $120 on bottled water for the room! On this boat we ordered ice and ice water 3 times a day which Urall brought every day after I asked. No charge! I hate paying for water! The agency we book with had two people on board who were always at their station during appointed hours and did their best to work out any problems. As usual (for us anyway) we found the ships staff anxious to help. The drinks were good, $6-7 for a beer, $ 8-9 for a cocktail. Problems: Several passengers complained that the grout in their bathrooms stuck to their feet and came out of the tiles. We has a little of this in our shower. Several rooms were flooded (deck 7 even side). I never found out why but they were flooded. A few people were upgraded as a result but the ship was fully booked and some had to go back to smelly damp rooms! Very VERY unhappy! NOTE: When the Shaman on the train excursion in Peru does his performance and explains how the white man did an evil thing in making cocaine from the sacred coca leaf, listen! When he passes out a few leaves of coca and tells you it is OK to chew, DON"T LISTEN!! I tried it. It is supposed to be a mild stimulant. It did nothing for me in that regard, however, I think his Llama cleaned his butt with them! I got VERY sick the next day and stayed that way for 4 days! Read Less
