This was our first time on celebrity (we previously sailed on Royal Caribbean, Princess and Holland). Celebrity is definitely our least favorite. It's not terrible, just underwhelming. The Infinity is an old ship and definitely has a lot of wear and tear. Pros: -The entertainment for the most part was very good. The Celebrity Singers and Dancers show was dated and nonsensical but we liked everything else. They bring in a lot of acts from outside that are outstanding (there was a group from Britain's Got Talent that was particularly great). The musicians playing throughout the ship during the day were also very good. -The food in the buffet was great. They always had something different and a lot of the food was based on the stop we were in (i.e. Greek food when we were in Greece). We also did the specialty dining in QSine one night for the Le Petit Chef experience (they project a show onto your table and plate). That was very cool and unlike anything I've ever seen. -The Celebrity Shore Excursions were all very good. I liked the tour guides and they gave a lot of good info. We took one in all of our ports except for Dubrovnik. Cons: -We felt like Celebrity was constantly trying to get us to spend money. We were asked to buy drinks or drink packages constantly that we had no interest in. It felt like they were pressuring the staff to sell more packages. We were constantly being handed tickets or fliers for jewelry sales (something we also have no interest in). It started to get really annoying. -We really didn't enjoy the experience in the dinning room. As a table of 2, we were sat mere inches from another table of 2 so it felt awkward. The service was also too slow for our liking but space was the main issue. We stopped eating there because we had no space. -Our balcony door (Room 6094) was broken. This is a serious safety issue. We were locked out on our balcony and had to call down to a guest on the deck below for help. After that, we had to keep the door partially open whenever we used the balcony. This is unacceptable. We did let them know at guest relations but I don't know that there was anything they could do. -Basic necessities were not sold on the ship. The biggest issue was that they did not sell sunscreen. For a warm Mediterranean cruise, this is a huge problem. We used up the one we packed on our sea day and couldn't buy more until we got to Greece. They also don't sell pads (sanitary napkins) or advil in the main store. -There were not a lot of free activities to do on the boat. This made our sea day really boring. A lot of these would be easy fixes (a wider selection of board games and books in the library). Other cruise lines have had activities like stargazing, jewelry making, cookie decorating, cooking demonstrations, etc. that made sea days a fun experience. A lot of the free activities (like a dance class) were out on the pool deck which was too hot and crowded (while lounges and spaces like the theater remained mostly empty). The ports we went to were really nice so we enjoyed the experience but we probably wouldn't sail celebrity again. Read Less

We chose this ship for its itinerary and the timing of departure. We are experienced cruisers (10+ cruises) and this was our second on Celebrity. We booked a SkySuite (8127 accessible). After reading multiple reviews on this ship I will admit I was concerned. I thought the ship would feel old and tired, I thought the staff would be lukewarm and the food mediocre. Now I am just wondering what ship the rest of the reviewers were on, because it certainly was not the Infinity that we experienced. We thought the ship was in great shape (yes if you look closely you could see some wear in tear, but whoever is looking that closely better not come to my house because we've lived in it for 16+ years and it also shows some signs of its age). The staff was delightful -- lots of fun and great entertainment. The ship is big enough to have the resources/activities of a large ship, but not so big to feel overwhelming. If you wanted to, you could avoid the crowds (even on sea days). We loved our Suite Class perks! Food in Luminae was among the best we have had on any ship including some luxury lines that are all about the food. And being in a dining room that seats a maximum of 50 at a time meant that we never felt rushed, never had crying babies, etc. to interrupt our dining experience (and we really dined!). Thought the itinerary was strong, although was a bit disappointed in Split, would have preferred Dubrovnik. Shore excursions were fine but not extraordinary - our best excursion we booked privately in Corfu. The only real complaint was the Wifi was spotty. and getting to and from the port in Venice is a pain -- Celebrity should have provided free shuttles - not charged for it. Read Less

I was hoping to be wowed by Celebrity having read up so much prior to going, but i have to say although they were good, I do prefer other cruise lines in retrospect. The ports of call made this cruise memorable for the right reasons. Our cabin was lovely, clean and such a comfortable bed. Good closet space. Bathroom supplies were fine. A very quiet and smooth sail throughout no issues with the ship itself even though its due a refit being older, but i liked the size of it, and managed to not get too lost. The small annoyance is the water in cabin is extra costing over 5$ for a warm bottle of water, which if you have a drinks package its Free from the bars. Mini bar is also extra. Dining was mediocre. our table for 2 was squashed by a stair well we felt squeezed in. Service, was fine, just a little forced. Buffet was again Ok, but on some occasions some sections were closed, and left very little to choose from, however the breakfast ommlette station was fantastic, offering hot variety on demand. The waiters who clear the tables work very hard. Lovely views whilst sitting in the Buffet, this was lovely for sunsets and dolphin spotting whilst eating. Some bars kept running out of things waiting on deliveries. Some toilets had toilet paper on the floor, and no napkins. It actually felt like the ship was short staffed for some reason.Maybe they were training staff still I dont know. Food in the main dining was often luke warm and tiny portions. The soups were lovely to taste,but the menu every day was un-inspiring really, i was hoping the food would be something extra special. We didn't do the speciality due to the constant upsell all the time, and the menus offered there were pretty much the same you could get for free elsewhere. Cafe Bacio the coffee shop was a favourite of ours, wonderful drinks and pretty good service in here. Entertainment was constant around the ship, a great DJ Alessio, was fantastic, some great sounds, round by the pool bar and Maritin bar. He lifted the mood well. Evening entertainment one show was great the IBroadway was excellent but the other shows were ok, nothing too engaging, we found much of the shows were gameshow style which felt very much for the Americans onboard. Most of the bar staff we experienced were quite miserable, and found service very inconsistent and slow, one person great, next person not at all bothered to connect with you. such a shame. The best part was - Our ports of call were excellent, itinerary fantastic. I loved Venice, and Split and Kotor especially. The tours we did were great too, very insightful and interesting the tour guides were fantastic, we did some walking tours and found them very well organised and enjoyable. All the tenders and transfers were organised very well. everything rang smoothly, I was just a little underwhelmed by Celebrity, most of the hype says they are top of the list. i beg to differ.
