We go on Celebrity again and again. Obviously, we like this line. Embarkation: It went pretty smoothly for us. We live in the San Diego area and that was the embarkation point. So we arrived by train (a 40 minute trip), got off downtown, walked across the street to the cruise port and we were there. Very easy (and inexpensive). There were the usual serpentine lines but it was not terribly objectionable. About 30-45 minutes to get on board. We were booked as Concierge Class so there was lunch on embarkation day in the main dining room. There were maybe 3-4 entrees from which to select. Really quite good and I was thrilled to be able to escape the chaos that is always at the buffet in the Ocean View Cafe--the latter is just not my style. Debarkation: Easy and smooth. Vancouver was the debarkation point. We got off, walked a couple of blocks to the Canada Line Sky Train, and for a couple of bucks arrived at the airport. Much better than the cruise line bus but only for those who are willing to carry their own bags and be willing to navigate the streets and terminal on their own. Ship: The ship has three specialty restaurants (unless you are suite or Aqua Class). However, the Sushi on Five does not serve what I eat so one more would be perfect. They actually have room to put one at the Wine Cellar as a lot of that space seems to go unused. Service: Service was very good to great in most places on the ship. All the crew were extremely friendly. Our cabin steward, Elmer, was absolutely outstanding. Was it because of the $5 I gave him upon meeting him with a promise of another $5 when we debarked? Who knows. But he was great. Herve in Qusine is an absolute kick (I won't spoil the surprise for you but he was entertaining as all get out.) Jovel, the Maitre'd at Tuscan Grill simply could not do enough for us as is true of all of the staff there. And if you talk to these guys as people, many of them are very interesting. Food & Wine: My wife and I are wine and foodie people and their specialty restaurants hit our goals. We attended the Chef's Dinner (3rd time we have done this)---great and memorable experience. We, along with some good friends traveling with us, were joined by two ship's officers. That was it, just the 6 of us. Dinner in the private dining room of Tuscan Grill. Pleasant conversation with the officers including a lot of behind the scenes information. Dinner was outstanding. Wine flowed freely and it was not the cheap stuff. We did Tuscan Grill twice (first night and deep into the cruise) and Qsine one time. And because we signed up for the chef's dinner upon boarding the first day,Tuscan Grill took very special care of us when we were there. We enjoyed all three of those dinners immensely. The main dining room was really poor the second night (many of the entrees were overcooked) but got better each night that we ate there after that. But even on that second night the appetizers were very good. We were on the any time dining plan. I'm not sure I would do that again as I like having a waiter/ass't waiter who knows what I want, etc. With any time dining, some of the wait staff was less attentive/quick than I would like. If that occurred with the 1st or 2nd seating I would say something to the supervisor and expect that the situation would improve. Beverage & Wine Package: We both had this package as one of our perks. I wasn't sure it was going to be a better deal than the $150/person OBC offer. It was and I appreciated the fact that I didn't have to sign for each drink and hear (in my head) the cash register going off. Further, Celebrity had just changed their policy so with the classic package if you ordered a drink over the limit ($9 I think) you only paid the difference, not the entire tab. This is a much fairer approach. Internet experience: It is definitely better than the old system which tended to move like molasses at times. They advertise you can use this for business web conferences and VOIP calls. Maybe at times but not at the times I tried. If a lot of people on the ship are on the internet at the same time then things slow down to too slow for conferences and VOIP. And since you don't know when that will be you can't schedule a web conference. So that was a disappointment. Internet Options: We called before sailing and were told only option was unlimited at approx $200. On board there was, as I recall, a one hour, one day, 100 minutes, and unlimited options. Although the unlimited is expensive, and they do push that option, I'd still go for that as with the others you have to remember to log out or the time just keeps running. Internet Hook Up: My laptop couldn't find the log in page. The web browser just couldn't find it. ILounge guru could not resolve the problem. Unfortunately I allowed him to tweak and change some of my computer settings as he tried to get the laptop to navigate to the log in page; that was a mistake as it significantly disabled my laptop for a while until I was able to back out his changes. We did get credit for half the unlimited charge. Easy solution: log in on phone and create hot spot for laptop. If they want to charge you for two devices, get special dispensation since the laptop won't hook up. Wish I had thought of that then rather than a day later. Ports/Excursions: We rarely take the ship excursions, preferring to plan things for ourselves. I often put together walking tours of the ports we are in along with restaurants for us to stop for lunch. All of the ports were very enjoyable except Nanaimo. There is just nothing I can find to do there. In our pre-cruise planning we just decided to treat it as a "sea day," although we did get off for about an hour just to walk around. This is the second Pacific Coastal Cruise I have taken (both on Celebrity) and I would do it again. Read Less

We took this cruise due to our desire to stay in the US and Canada (chronic medical issues). The itinerary was excellent (San Diego; Santa Barbara; Monterey; Astoria; Seattle; Nanaimo; Victoria; Vancouver). The crew were outstanding -- almost everyone made that "little extra effort" that made our time enjoyable. We did the open dining option for the first time and really enjoyed it. Our party of 4 was able to sit alone at a table of 4 for every dinner meal (as requested). Diversity of food selections (including vegetarian options) were very good; presentation was exceptional and quality was good. Other meals were mostly in the Ocean Grille buffet, which was also very good, although it seemed to get a bit monotonous by the end of an 11-day cruise. (I missed having any Mexican or Tex-Mex selections the entire cruise). Tip: if you want a kind of jelly other than strawberry or orange marmalade, go to the Trellis dining room for breakfast (blackberry and grape). Our party's cabins were typical concierge class cabins. One of us paid to have Aqua class and the relaxation room on the Infinity was a huge disappointment -- dark and damp and dank -- not at all like the photo on the Celebrity site. I would not bother again. Beds were comfy but awfully narrow if you are used to a king-sized bed. The room on the Ninth deck (9102) had frequent sewage smells, coming from the toilet and from the deck (outside). No other complaints about cabins. The concierge was outstanding. My husband forgot a prescription at home. We first checked with a nurse on board who checked to see if they stocked it on the boat (no); she was not very helpful. The concierge helped us call out doctor back in our home state and we were able to pick up a new prescription at the next port. The photographers seemed younger and more timid than the ones I have encountered on previous ships. They were not asking to take your photos all the time -- which may be good or bad depending on your point of view. We saw three evening shows -- we left the first one because the singing was horrible. The next two shows were entertainers who were not from the ship -- they were both g-rated and top quality (a magician who used mechanical items and a musical impersonator). Unlike past cruises, there was very little planned on board for people to do. Not sure if this was because it was a repositioning cruise, but it was a bit boring. Lots of library users! The average age on this particular cruise was at least 65. No kids, no teens and almost no one under age 50. Lots of canes, wheelchairs, oxygen, etc. Read Less

We are repeat Celebrity Aqua Class cruisers and like and appreciate the loyalty benefits. However, we noticed a reduction of staff and services everywhere especially at Blu restaurant, Main Cafe, Aqua Class cabin cleaning, internet service and assistance, guest services, excursion desk, etc. Evident that cabin attendants and restaurant waiters DID NOT have assistants to help them. Also no drink pool service staff. We felt that all the personnel were overworked, tired and could not possibly do the work of 2-3 people. General Cafe skimped on better food options and higher end fruits, vegetables and main courses. Quality and gourmet choices suffered Makes $$$ cruising less attractive by cutting personnel services!!!! Fredy, our cabin attendant was very attentive and very hard worker - eager to please, and at BLU, we really appreciated all the hard work and efforts by Tanya and Sarah, Billy, Anastasia, Armando, and at the Captain's Club events, and cocktail hour, we especially were impressed with senior staff manager, Errol, from Jamaica, although the appetizers for each event were sub-par and repetitive and everyone agreed that it tasted like leftover foods put together on a mini-skewer. Barbara, from Hungary was extremely courteous, knowledgeable and helpful in the Future Travel Destinations. The shops were a disappointment - need more boutique options that are well priced, unique and fun. Internet: like 3rd world country intermittent bad service. Staff help was spotty at best. We paid $$$$$$ for poor service throughout ourv15 day cruise. TV was exceptionally poor. No way of telling when free movies, ship lectures or programs were being shown. No TV guide functions. Need to be updated as well. Read Less

The educational speakers were fabulous, especially loved Milos who was exceptionally entertaining as well as educational. As we went through the locks, our expert educator was able to provide a running commentary that was informative and comprehensive. Our dinner staff, Kadek and Mario, were wonderful. Request something one time, and they attended to that request every evening. My room attendant, Yuris, was so attentive. I was disappointed in what seemed to be an excessive number of seminars attempting to sell jewelry, liquor, etc. on the ship. (The seminar on emeralds was excellent, as well as some tips for sightseeing there at the dock.) The guides for the Antigua, kayaking and horseback riding excursions (Guatemala, Colon and Puerto Vallarta) spoke excellent and understandable English and provided us with unexpected and delightful experiences. Alejandro, Nacho and Jeannie were superb at their jobs! I continue to be a big fan of Celebrity Cruises! Read Less

We chose this cruise because of the great mix of ports and sea days and the opportunity to experience the Panama Canal and we were not disappointed. Embarkation and disembarkation was a smooth as silk. The ship was a great size in comparison to the number of passengers and we never felt cramped and were always successful in find a seat in the common areas, theatre, dining room and buffet. The crew was amazing! Always there when you needed them and willing to do whatever they could to improve your experience. The entertainment was not to everyone's taste every night but there was enough variety that we looked forward to seeing the next show. We has an outside cabin which was small as expected but roomy enough and with the outside window gave us great views. The cabin attendant was always around but we never felt like we were tripping over him. He had a great idea of our schedule and quickly learned to work within it. Read Less

THE GOOD: Great food selection, quality and presentation. Main dining room waiter Kadek & Asst. Waiter Marco were outstanding some of the best. Room attendant for 7070, Wayan, was the best we have ever had. The ship Orchestra was the best group of men we have ever had on any cruise along with the singers and dancers, great production and lounge shows. Almost everyone on the ships staff from officers, food service, pool Butler's, bar service, maintaince etc. etc. etc. Were very friendly and accommodating. Over all it was a fine cruise and we enjoyed almost everything, and will cruise Celeberty again but, following, we do have some areas that did not meet our expectations. THE BAD: Wifi was pathetic my old dial up from 5 years ago was faster than the ships Wifi, you need to stop advertising it as high speed. In this day and age of technology there is no reason to have such horrible Wifi speed and service. Captain's club elite members vs Royal Caribbean diamond club. Really missed having the three drinks at any bar area, that we get with our RC diamond status, we are able to enjoy some music and entertainment while having a drink before or after dinner. Celebrity has a very limited drink selection for their elite members in one lounge location. It seems like you should at least offer one different drink type each night so there is some variety on a 14 and above day cruise. Also if we are to be limited to just one lounge area there should be some nights with music from the ship entertainers. Same goes for the elite continental breakfast, on a 14 day cruise there should be some variety to the offerings. We came away from our first Celeberty cruise with the feeling that loyalty is not very well rewarded compared to our Diamond status with RC. We did enjoy the complimentary laundry service and a couple of the special events. Kristy, our Captains club hostess was very good, helpful and friendly. In Panama we took the Panama city tour that stopped at the Gatun locks. The city part of the tour was marginsl, expected to get closer and in the new part of the city, but just saw from a distance. We stopped for a very poor quality box lunch, that we had to eat in the van in less than a desirable area. THE UGLY: The Infinity is an old ship that is really showing its age. The cleanliness of the ship is very good, it's just that the staff needs the ship updated so their hard work pays off in a newer, updated ship. Many of the furnishings are worn out, stained and outdated. The tile floor in our bathroom needed to be replaced. The iron railings, under the wood railings, is rusted to the point of failure in many locations. There were at least two ice machines that were out of order for the entire cruise. We know there had been some updates to the ship in the last year or two but they definitely did not go far enough. Read Less

This was our second Infinity cruise thru Panama Canal; this time east to west. We had hoped that we would go through the new Panama Canal which is why we took this second trip; however, we did not, but we saw it. Ship had supposedly undergone a "makeover" but we did not notice much done in public areas and/or rooms since our first trip in 2009. We had great service in the dining room and in the casino bar. We took 2 tours offered thru the ship; both were just OK at best. The crocodile/train tour in Costa Rica was great in 2009 but due to the crocs becoming aggressive, feeding of the crocs has stopped--we saw 2 beached crocs! The train ride on an old train was awful and not at all scenic unless you enjoy viewing the impoverished housing. The zoo tour in Guatemala was good for those who have difficulty walking as you drive thru the animal exhibits on the bus. The best tour was one that I arranged for privately in Cartagena with "Dora the Explorer"! We had a private van for the 4 of us and toured the city for 4 hours, going and stopping where and when we wanted. You can contact Dora thru cartagenatour.com. We toured with Dora in 2009 and now in 2017 with Dora's friend Mercedes. This smaller van allowed for us to see parts of the city that the big tour busses cannot access plus we had an engaging dialogue with Mercedes. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY, JUST EXCELLENT! As far as entertainment on the ship, the shows have definitely gone downhill; only the Celebrity singer/dancers provided pretty entertaining shows. Sad to see that Celebrity was now charging for IPAD classes! . Read Less

We chose this cruise because I'd wanted to see the Panama Canal, never been on Celebrity and happened to check for cruises when the price on this one was very low (just about 3 months before sailing, after which it went back up to almost double). Starting out with that serendipity, I was primed to love it, and I did. I noticed none of the wear and tear on the Infinity that other posters have mentioned, except that the sink plug had some rust on it --who cares? It's a very pretty ship and easy to navigate. We had an inside cabin on deck 2. I'd always had a balcony before, but didn't want to spend the money for it on a 15-day cruise, and was happy with the cabin. We didn't experience the total blackout some people have mentioned; there was always enough light to orient yourself, and the cabin was more spacious than the balconies I've had on Holland America. The bathroom also seemed larger than I'm used to. Derek, our steward, kept everything immaculate, and always seemed to be in the hallway to open the door for me whenever I showed up. We didn't eat in the buffet for dinner, but the breakfasts, lunches and ice-cream were great, especially the eggs benedict and sandwich bars. They had brie for every lunch, and always fresh sweet juicy fruit -- the pineapple an watermelon were always perfect. The MDR lunches and dinners were usually very good, but there were a couple of misses, e.g., undercooking the short ribs. I found the desserts subpar in all the venues except Café Al Bacio (which has great mini lemon tarts). We tried each of the specialty restaurants once. I'd heard you could get them for half-price if you were patient, and that's what happened. In Tuscan Grille, all the appetizers we tried were fabulous, including the best tomato I ever ate, as part of the burrata starter (parboiled, I think, and marinated in oil and vinegar) -- I'd return just for the tomato. The rib-eye would have been very good, except I didn't like the sauce, which seemed like regular gravy. Qsine was a hoot and, unexpectedly, almost everything we tasted there was delicious (though I'd stay away from the cold soups). As for the pool grill, the hamburgers tasted good, but the two times I tried them they cooled off by the time I could get them fixed up with condiments and find a table. The hot dog was fabulous, enhanced by crispy bacon pieces. We enjoyed almost all of the performances we went to. There could have been more activities; often there was a space of 2 or 3 hours with nothing that looked interesting. Luckily, the casino was usually open at those times! We had found people to pay trivia with on the roll-call before the cruise, and added to our group early on, so it was fun to find your friends every day to play with. Of the staff, Jeanna (games host), Nacho (don't know what his title is; he directed many of the activities involving audience participation) and the guy who narrated the trip through the canal were all fabulous (though I would have preferred the latter guy not sharing his personal politics re the canal, which I don't agree with). We took the ship's shuttle to Antigua in Puerto Quetzal and walked around on our own -- it made a nice day, and the city is well worth seeing (bring good shoes for walking on cobblestones). Took an independent tour in Puntarenas (Thumbs Up) and was somewhat disappointed because we saw very little wildlife -- probably can't blame them for that though. In Curacao we took a 2.5 hour Curacao East Side and City Highlights Excursion with ShoreExcursioner, which I recommend highly. There were just 4 of us (I solicited the other 2 on the roll-call) so the service was quite personalized; it's around $35/each. Other ports we just walked around in or took local buses (in Puerto Vallarta you can get to the tequila distillery in Mismaloya that way, and they have fabulous almond, coffee and chocolate flavored tequila). Embarkation was neither terrible nor swift, but walk-off debarkation was a breeze. And it looks like I forgot to mention going through the canal, which was the point of the whole thing: it's fascinating, and there's no way I'd understand the lock process without seeing it firsthand. I'd go on this cruise again in a minute! Read Less

Getting on the ship and to the room went very well. Noticed strong mildew smell and worked with staff and Concierge through various solutions. Ended up being lucky enough to switch rooms and the new is what this review is based on. Tipping: 1st time with Celebrity and the lack of tickets meant I had to carry cash with money wasting away in my account. I was told I could do an extra tip for room service at the end from my account, but that turned out to be the entire dining room staff, but they were worth it. I did discover that I could sometimes get a $0.00 bill that I could add a tip to. Service and the staff were great, but we all know a little tipping raises their spirits and they take more time to get to know your needs and wants. Isn't it about time for some IPAD type device where you can just select $1, $2 or other with a card swipe. Room Stewards: Outstanding! Dining: Very good with many choices. Service was very good and if you needed anything you just had to ask. Room Service: Pretty good, but with minor errors on the order. I like raisin bran with cold milk and 2 out of the first 3 times the milk was warm. I doubled up and kept one in the mini fridge from then on. A little unclear on quantity you will get of items when you say it is for two people (I should have called and asked). People were fantastic, but again after a great night at the Martini bar I don't like having to hunt for cash when breakfast shows up. Next time I'll request a $0.00 bill every morning I do room service. Infinity Bars: Upgraded to premium package which was great. Even better I did not need to upgrade my cabin mate! Café al Vacio - Outstanding!. Constellation Lounge and Rendez-Vous Lounge - average because it was hard to get served and twice had to ask who or where was the bartender. I gave up after two tries. Service during events in the Constellation lounge was very good. Mast Bar, Oceanview Bar and Pool Bar - Excellent! I did not try the Casino Bar or Cellar Masters. If you want a drink to a show you had better get there early or bring your own as they don't disrupt the show by trying to serve drinks in the dark which I appreciate. Martini Bar: Clearly one of the highlights of the cruise!!! Great people, great drinks and some of the hardest working people with a huge dose of fun that I have seen in a long time. Programs and Entertainment were all very good. Being able to watch programs that we missed in the room was nice for a couple that we missed. Movies on the deck were okay, but pretty hot and muggy. I never noticed anyone serving drinks or snacks, but I only did 1.5 movies. Air Conditioning: This turned out to be a real problem. The AC barely kept up the last week of the cruise. As we got closer to the end it got even worse. People entering the 9th hall way aft would comment on how bad it was. Underneath the 10th floor buffet which was also pretty warm. Somewhat expected on 10 with the doors to the Oceanview Bar being opened and closed so many times. Coolest spot was outside right in front of the doors (just kidding, but you did get an awesome breeze). Seem like some clever engineering is needed here. I'n front of the Pizza counter which had some of the best garlic bread ever you would feel water dripping on you from the ceiling which I can only assume is related to the AC problems. Pool Grill was only open from about 11:30 to 6:00 PM, but they make a very good burger as sometimes you get off schedule with meals. None of the Excursions really appealed to us for the price. People we talked to seemed to like the ones they went on. We will be doing another Celebrity Cruise, but on a different ship. I should have been more aggressive with the room temperature. My advice is bring a Thermometer! Getting off ship was great, but customs had very long lines. I'll do Mobile Pass next time!! I hope I didn't make any factual errors, but did I mention the Martini Bar... Read Less

We have done several cruises in the past 3 years and one of them just entered the first lock and turned around. We enjoyed the passage so much we decided to do it all. The lectures on board made it even more enjoyable. We started off right across the ship at the Marriott Bayside. Very easy to walk to the ship. Embarkation was pretty typical, a real pain in the neck. Nothing nice to say about getting off the ship. We did the bag drag and had to drag all the bags through the bar with hundreds of folks littered about. We were on this ship 18 months ago and it seems like things are getting cut back. Little things like our head waiter only had 2 tables and two assistants. This year he had many more and only one helper. Slowed things down a bit but still had some great service and food. We went to almost all the shows and as usual it was top notch. We had an oceanview room and a very good steward. Read Less

We will have long lasting memories of this cruise, the transit through the canal,the ports of call and the high standard of service from all the staff. What is memorable but for different reasons is the state of the ship. It was clean but tired, jaded and overdue a refit. Our Aqua Class cabin (9045) had furniture and fittings well past their best, the air conditioning was so noisy at times, it woke us up. Bedlinen was a poor quality and the pillows very uncomfortable. The bathroom was certainly not luxurious. There was a black ring round the toilet and mould in the shower and in the shower door seals which were so old, they were cracked and had bits missing so the bathroom flooded after a shower. Throughout the ship there were other signs of being due some maintenance. Deck railings were rusty, with rust flaking off. During the cruise, condensation on the ceiling of the Oceanview Cafe led to liquid dropping from the ceiling onto gusets and their food - very hygenic. Increasingly, air conditioning in some areas was turned down or off. Staff were excellent but the ship seemed understaffed leading to longer than expected delays in being served. Food in Blu was excellent as well as in Sushi on 5. The Oceanview Cafe was no better/worse than expected. Ports of call were a mixed bag. If you want to shop then Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta are for you. At Puerto Quetzal, the ship berths in a the middle of coal heaps, gas containers and powerstations. We took an excursion to the Highlands and enjoyed it. Puntarenas was another port where there was little in the port but the excursions were excellent. Willemstaad was the jewel in the crown. A beautiful place to wander around with the ship berthing close to town The transit of the Canal was the highlight of the cruise. The skill in getting through the locks is amazing. Embarkation and disembarkation was the usual queuing but no worse than other cruise lines and better than most Would not travel on Infinity again though unless re-fitted Read Less

The destination and cruise line drew us to this cruise. We are very fond of Celebrity cruises, and have wanted to do a Panama Canal cruise for a long while. We were not disappointed with this cruise! This was our first experience with a balcony, and as well in Aqua class, and we loved it. The benefit we most enjoyed with this category was dining in the Blu restaurant for breakfast and dinner. We appreciated the smaller, more intimate and relaxed atmosphere from the main dining room Trellis, and overall the food was excellent. We also loved that it was "anytime" dining. The host quickly gets to know you and we were seated with the same waiter and assistant waiter every evening, although we did tend to show up at the same time with our friends we were traveling with every evening. That said, the entire process from start to finish seems longer, which for us was two hours (closer to three on the last Elegant Chic night when they served lobster.) But having now experienced Blu, we plan to always book Aqua class. The Persian Gardens access (inc with Aqua class,) is a nice benefit IF you like saunas, but keep in mind it is not as large as the S class ships, so it doesn't include the heated ergonomic beds that look out over the ocean that Celebrity pictures in their promotion of the Persian Gardens. That was a minor disappointment. The entertainment in the theater was overall good; we preferred the outside acts like the comedian, the Not3Tenors, the violinist, etc., (which were all excellent,) to their in-house performances by the Celebrity players. I feel like there used to be more shipboard musical groups (solo guitarist, singers, small bands,) years ago, but I could be mistaken. The room itself was nice. However, the ship is starting to show its age, and I noticed that in the bathrooom (the drain stopper in the sink was off kilter and barely open, tile that needed refreshing, etc) and in the pool. Minor stuff, though, and nothing that ruined the wonderful time we had on this cruise. The last thing I would like to mention, is that we could have had one extra port stop had we sailed from FL to CA rather than CA to FL. We really enjoyed all of our 8 sea days, though, so it wasn't a big disappointment for us. But something to keep in mind if you want an extra port day. Read Less

My sister and I shared a bedroom while we were growing up, and had a crap relationship, so imagine my delight when we shared a smallish cabin and got along swimmingly. Firstly, I want to thank my sister Nancy and all our Trivia buddies (Kevin, Roger, Rodger, and Richard) for enabling us to capture the Celebrity Gold Metal for progressive trivia. We did, however, tie with an English couple. A word about these two: They participated in enough activities to make a teenager on uppers exhausted. They knew everything. Their winning entry in the egg-drop contest was a marvel of engineering and aesthetics. It looked like the hot air balloon in "Around the World in Eighty Days," incorporated the nightly mints into its rigging, and was decorated with gold duckies. Celebrity, please don't let people like this on board. It makes the rest of us feel so inadequate! Nancy commented on the independent tour we took, and said Thumbs UP. That was the name of the tour, not her evaluation. We were supposed to see monkeys and scarlet macaws. It ran thusly: "See that little monkey in the tree? No, not that tree, the one in back of it. See the little thing that looks like a hairball?" Well, no, I didn't. I had been to Costa Rica before, and the place was awash with monkeys. It's hard to believe that Thumbs Up didn't know where to find them. The scarlet macaws were sighted from so far away that they photographed as grey. I know that the point is to observe the animals in situ, but there's a big difference between in situ and invisible. We did see a fair amount of crocodiles, about which I'll continue to complain. They swim submerged, so mostly what you see is a snout in the water, followed by something that looks like a knobby branch. We were seated in the back of the boat, next to a noisy motor. As a result, we couldn't hear the narrative. Thumbs down! Back to the egg-drop contest. If it's offered, you'll have a lot of fun if you participate. If you don't want to dirty your hands (I'm not telling you what Nancy and I used to buffer the eggs, just that the buffet staff looked aghast as we carried out three bowls of it. Aghast also describes the reaction of the volunteer who had to stick her hand in to ascertain the condition of the eggs.), it's a lot of fun to watch. One of the entries had a self-constructed propeller which turned as the egg carried descended. Quite an ingenious group, these cruisers! The entertainment was a mix of "I can't believe we're lucky enough to get to see this!" (The Three Tenors) to "What do we have to do to get out of here?" (two non-starters who shall remain nameless). The specialty restaurants were above anything I've ever had on a ship, and on par with some of the best restaurants at which I've eaten. The daily ice-cream was sometimes gritty or strange, and the baked Alaska was a huge disappointment. The waiters were the best; good at their jobs, pleasant, and in the case of Nyoman, remembered our names. The two weeks seemed to go by in a flash. My sister was able to grab a ridiculously low price (the base cost of my vacation was less that my dog-sitter's charge), and, in summary, I was damned lucky to get to go, and had a ball. Read Less

My wife and I are long time Celebrity cruisers, but, after some management changes a couple of years ago, we had become somewhat disenchanted with them. This cruise and one on Equinox earlier in the year have reversed our thinking. We booked this Panama Canal Transit on board over a year before the cruise, primarily to get a look at the expanded canal. While the ship cruised only on the original canal and we could see only the entrance to the new one, we're quite happy with the ship, the personnel, the food and the itinerary. Embarkation in Miami was a nightmare. This seemed to be caused by the need to sanitize the ship because of a few cases of narvovirus (?) on the previous cruise, the immigration requirements from that cruise coming from South America, and the inefficiency of the Miami terminal. Regardless, we were shuffled from one long line to another, with no obvious "plan". When we finally did board, though, as Concierge passengers we were treated to an excellent sit-down lunch in the main dining room. A very welcomed perk as opposed to the usual chaos in the Oceanview buffet. I'm sure suite and Aqua passengers were treated well also. For the past several years we had sailed only on the Solstice class ships, so we were a bit concerned about how we would adjust to the smaller Infinity. No problem. The ship has been modernized (except the shower stalls), is very well kept and attractive. The furniture is much more comfortable that that on the larger ships, the cabin large enough. The food was, by and large, quite good in all restaurants. An annoying change from prior sailings, though, was that the fixed time dining was moved to the upper level in the main dining room with the "Select" dining on the main floor. This created a crowded, noisy, and warm dining atmosphere on the upper level, with the servers apparently overloaded and slow., with little time for interaction with the passengers. We will go for Select in the future. The officers and staff we very friendly and available. The crew also. Special kudos to the Captain's Club Hostess, Kirsty. The itinerary was enjoyable, with a number of sea days to relax and some interesting ports to visit. I do wish we had stopped in Panama City instead of Colon, which is a dump. Entertainment was mixed. The on-board singers and dancers gave us three excellent shows. The other entertainers ranged from comedians to a flutist to a juggler. Some like 'em, some don't. Music in bars was sparse, but what was there was enjoyable. We booked only two excursions through the ship. Both awful. In Cabo we booked a whale watching tour, only to find after getting on board the tour boat, that they hadn't seen a whale in three days and they were probably gone north. We were treated to a two hour boat ride along the coast. When I complained back on Infinity I was told that the tour company is a separate company and Celebrity could do nothing. I understand the separation, but Celebrity sold the tour and they supposedly vet the tour companies. The other was the shuttle from the ship to the airport and three times the cab fare. At the airport we and our luggage were unceremoniously dumped on the sidewalk at the end of the terminal, with the Delta counter at the far other end. We won't book with Celebrity excursions again Read Less

Trip through the Panama Canal to cross off bucket list item. Embarkation ran a little long but we had received an email from Celebrity warning of this due to just coming from South America so it was not unexpected. Upon boarding they were handing out free glasses of champagne to help smooth over the long boarding process and the fact that the rooms weren't quite ready yet. The instructions for the in room safe, cabin 2047, says to use a 6 digit code but it wouldn't accept a 6 digit code only a 4 digit. My mom's cabin next door took a 6 digit code. According to the stateroom attendant some safes take 4 digit and others 6. It would be nice if they were consistent. Our stateroom bathroom had a couple of cracked tiles and the mirror has a couple of places on the edge where the mirrored coating was coming off but overall the room was good. The real issue was the ice/water machines in the Oceanview cafeteria seemed to have issues. Some would have ice and no water while others would have water and no ice. Even first thing in the morning at breakfast. Not a terrible thing just a little annoying. There was a lot of fish served in the MDR and the dessert choices were a little lacking, usually 2 new items in addition to the normal every night choices such as apple pie, ice cream etc. The service from both cabin attendant and wait staff in the MDR were excellent. The entertainment in the evening was very good. There was one or two nights that the entertainment wasn't my cup of tea but it still was very good. There was a wide variety of activities going on almost constantly throughout the day if you were interested. We had 6 stops along the way, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, PV Mexico and Cabo San Lucas Mexico. I only wish our time at both Mexico stops was longer. Read Less

Cruise Critic Review: Panama Canal with Celebrity Infinity We chose this cruise to celebrate our recent retirement, and the itinerary -- Miami to San Diego via Panama Canal -- attracted us. The canal has been a bucket list item and this 15 night cruise had seven (yes, seven!) days at sea. We love days at sea -- perfect for relaxing and being pampered aboard ship. This was our third cruise with Celebrity and we continue to feel that they provide great service and sophisticated atmosphere for the best value. Infinity was well maintained and rarely shows its age. We prefer the larger Solstice class ships because they offer a bit more but, hey, less walking! The staff is terrific and we noticed they've toned down the incessant "hard sell" of drink packages, etc. that we'd encountered on previous embarkations. Our cabin (9099) was close to the mid-ship elevators, attractive, well-appointed and had plenty of storage. In fact, on the last day we discovered more shelves in a secret side door in the TV cabinet. 16-days worth of clothes filled the closet and drawers but we still had a little room to spare. A tip from the Forum to use the empty suitcase under the bed as a rolling dirty-clothes hamper was great advice! And we took advantage of our discounted bag of laundry. Dining in Blu as well worth the price of upgrading to Aqua Class. In fact, some of the Suite folks said they preferred Blu to their own special dining room. Great food and service and the intimate setting creates a real sense of community. We almost always struck up conversations with our table-neighbors and even created on-board friendships with several of them. We paid extra to dine a Tuscan Grill twice and we didn't feel it was worth it -- in fact, we thought the service a Blu was as good (if not better) and the food as well. We tried to move our reservation from 6:30pm to 7:30pm and they said they are fully committed, but we watched several tables for two remain empty throughout our stay. I asked the maitre d' about this -- he apologized and said the kitchen can't support a full dining room. Not good and we won't be back. Wish Normandy was still an option. Would pay twice what we paid at Tuscan for that experience. Oh -- we ate lunch at Sushi on Five and loved it. Totally worth it. And we had drinks every night at the Martini Bar -- great venue. Wish there were another small-ish venue with a great view. The ship's entertainment staff worked their #$@'s off -- seven days at sea means more free time for antsy passengers. The evening entertainment was good. The individual acts were nice -- especially singer Jayne Curry -- and the shows were professional and fun. I played bingo for the first (and last) time. Just not for me. All lectures were terrific. Special shout-out to Bill Fall -- his knowledge of the Panama Canal and all our ports was extensive and accessible. He provides valuable information (very helpful slides) and doesn't "sell" anything. Overall, service was great. Friendly staff and nice, well maintained facilities -- in fact, we noticed it was better maintained that the Summit, which we took last year. Our cabin steward was reliable and persistently fulfilled any requests we had. Excursions were good all good. Highlights include: - Guatemala self-guided trip to Antigua -- a UNESCO World Heritage site -- where we hired a personal guide at the "Jade Museum". It was well worth the $15 per person! - Panama Canal -- trip to see the locks, including the new, wider ones was worth the 6 hours. Great to see ships moving through from the outside looking in. It made watching our own ships passage more interesting. And we learned a lot about Panama and its people. - Costa Rica river safari, where we saw crocodiles up-close and personal. And tons of tropical birds. - Puerto Vallerta -- did this port on our own with friends we met at Blu. Happy we did so -- took a taxi to their shopping street (via swinging pedestrian bridge) and had lunch at a beach restaurant. Perfect for our short visit. - Cabo San Lucas -- Enjoyed the boat trip to see the famous "Arch" but realize we easily could have gotten off the ship and bought a cheaper, smaller and better experience. Our trip included a visit to a Beach Club, but we were confined to the second tier plastic chairs. Should have just done this port on our own. Disembarkation was VERY organized and went incredible smoothly. Embarcation was more confused and included more lines. Seems crazy that you check in, then get in another line to have your photo taken for your ship's pass-key. Could this be done at the same time? Cabin 9099 Our cabin (9099) was close to the mid-ship elevators, attractive, well appointed and had plenty of storage. In fact, on the last day we discovered more shelves in a secret side door in the TV cabinet. 16-days worth of clothes filled the closet and drawers but we still had a little room to spare. A tip from the Forum to use the empty suitcase under the bed as a rolling dirty-clothes hamper was great advice! The balcony overhang has pros and cons -- great for shade but not so great for star gazing. We discovered our cabin was under the smoking section of the pool deck but it posed no problem -- a little noise (only in the morning) but we never smelled anything on our balcony. We'd read that there were water pressure problems but experienced no problem -- in fact, we loved the shower with extra spa-like sprayers. We spoke with several folks in Deck 11 Aqua class who wish they were on Deck 9 due to hot sun pouring in on balconies and being away from mid-ship. Read Less

Our cruise was Miami to San Diego though the Panama Canal. Embarkation in Miami was delayed because of illness on board and extra sanitation and meant that everyone had to get in a series of long lines waiting to board. The highlight was going through the canal and we had good weather and several ships going the opposite direction to watch and learn from. The onboard lectures were a big help. The Infinity is in good repair, but looking a little old fashioned and tired We were in Aqua and ate in Blu for dinner and service and. food were excellent. The buffet was a different story. It is totally disorganized and people are milling around trying to find things and then good luck finding a table. Everyone was friendly, smiling and helpful. Room on 9th floor was good. We liked the overhang as it kept the room shaded. The shows were good and most seemed OK for the audience. Read Less

We had a great time on this cruise. There was just the right amount of ports to sea days for us. There was plenty of time to do everything aboard the ship and since it was a smaller ship, it was easy to get seats at the shows and dinner. We opted for an Aqua Class room and loved the food at Blu. We've been staying in Aqua class for a while now and will continue to do so. The ship was a nice size, a little older and a bit warn, but it was very clean and had a lot of areas to sit and relax. The spa pool in the solarium was great and we loved the outdoor movie area. The lectures on Panama Canal were very informative and the day passing through the canal was a highlight. We also enjoyed Antigua in Guatamela. We took the Antigua, Chocolate and Jade tour with the ship. We could have skipped the Chocolate shop and spent more time at the Jade museum, but I would still take the tour again. We would definitely sale on Celebrity and Infinity again. Read Less

We chose this cruise to go to and through the Panama Canal and to end up in San Diego. The canal was fabulous. Passing through the locks in the old section was amazing. Visiting the new section, which is not yet open to cruise ships, was fascinating. It was great to see and understand the differences in engineering from past to present day. The ship's staff was attentive, personable, and fun. There were many activities planned for sea days from dance lessons, games, watercolor painting, or you could go to the spa or just relax. We enjoyed most of the ports of call but wish we had more time in Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. We did the Panama Canal tour which was extremely educational and also the self guided tour in Antigua, Guatemala. We took an inside cabin. This suited us fine, since we spent very little time in our room. Our cabin was always neat and our cabin steward was very accommodating to our needs. Also, there are many dining options on the ship. The food was good and we decided not to pay extra for any of the more upscale restaurants. Desserts were plentiful at the coffee bar, all day/night long. The entertainment was upscale and varied, with singers, comedians, a juggler, a pianist, a flautist, and reviews. We tried to see every show. Terrific!! The Infinity was just the perfect size for our needs, not too big and not too small. We had so much fun and met so many nice people. We wished we could have sailed back through the canal for our return trip, but were booked to fly home after 3 days in San Diego. Read Less

The positives: We appreciated their efforts to keep the ship clean and that they took extra precautions for the first few days. Best embarkation and disembarkation including all ports that we've experienced ( this was our third cruise). Great entertainment including the outstanding ship orchestra. Friendly crew who went out of their way to provide great customer service. Coffee bar was outstanding. Appreciated the spa cafe for healthy breakfast choices. We enjoyed the food in all locations and most of the beverages. Improvement needed: We did 2 shore excursions but enjoyed our private ones much more and they were much more affordable and varied. We also discovered that they increased the price $10 pp if we yup waited to book on the ship. People crowded the deck and the stairs when we went through the canal - no crowd control. We couldn't even climb the stairs. Dining in the Trellis Restaurant took 90 minutes each night. We would have loved to have been able to order the entire meal including dessert at once and maybe cut the dining experience closer to an hour. We wished the entertainment started at 8:30 for early diners. Onboard free text messaging between guests would be appreciated. Other cruise lines offer it. We were traveling with friends and had to leave notes. No way to leave phone messages either. We had the Classic beverage package and we're rudely denied martinis at the martini bar a few times so we quit going there. We would like the announcements in our room so we didn't have to open our door. That being said our experience was a 4/5. We'd definitely go again. We celebrated our anniversary and we received several nice things to make that evening special. We are already looking into our next cruise. We were only offered $150 shipboard credit and 1 perk to book while we were on the cruise and we decided to wait. Read Less

A really exciting experience visiting a part of the world we have never been and only seen on television. From the port of Cartagena in Columbia through the Panama canal to the rain forest of Costa Rica , volcanos in Guatamala then beautiful seaside resorts in Mexico was a true adventure . The ship is majestic to say the least and nothing is too much trouble for the always happy crew . The restaurant service was excellent whether in the evening dining room or the self service Ocean View . The variety offered in the Ocean view was always impressive although the menus and meals in the dining room in the evening were disappointing ; the food was sometimes quite lacking in taste and not cooked to the standard expected . Room service was faultless and an immaculate clean cabin was there each time you returned . The shows were of a high standard although singing and dancing variety is not our taste they were very professional and Luigi the cruise director always got things started and made sure audiences had a good time . Afternoons around the pool area on sea days were a big treat , very relaxing and certainly what you paid your money for . All in all a great holiday in the sun , great excursions and nothing to think about just being taken care of in a great atmosphere . Read Less

Celebrity sells a consistently good product. With the exception of the food in the buffet the dining was excellent. Toast preparation in the buffet was one glaring shortfall. And unfortunately, many of the foods which needed to be served hot were not even warm. The design of the buffet also needs to be re-done. You had to do a lap around the different food stations just to see what was available. A map or some other type of guide at the entrance would have been helpful (e.g., a sign with arrows pointing in the direction of which type of food was available in which direction.). In contrast, both the food and service in the dining room at dinner were outstanding. We had great weather. Lima and Cartagena were wonderful stops but Arica and Manta left a good deal to be desired. Dr. Glassner was one of the most interesting and original speakers I have ever heard on a cruise. 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 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

The cabin was ok, however the shower had mold in it and I don't think that the shower floor had been cleaned (bleached) ever. When the shower over spray was wiped up (by my wife or I) the dirt came up off of the floor. The cabin steward (Norman) was great. We asked for ice and it was there daily. The on board entertainment varied from "knock your socks off" to so-so. The ships entertainer's were outstanding, Katie has a great voice and presentation. Some of the food on the main dining menu was repeated, more than once. Quisene and Tuscan offered an excellent diversion and we visited each twice. On the pool deck a section of ceiling (port side) was separated from the rest and hung down about 2 inches. The paint is bubbling, I guess from rust, everywhere around the deck 11 facing and it showed a lack of attention. The metal superstructure for the rails, around the Ocean view were badly rusted and the bolts holding the wood rails on looked as though they were ready to fall out. We understand that this is a older ship (about 19 years old) and that the "EDGE" is coming soon. I just hope that they have not diverted all the funds to the new ship. The staff and crew were perfect hosts. At the Ocean view bar on our second day the bar man, Nicolas, called us by name and new our beverage of choice. In the main dining room the wait staff was attentive and friendly. Read Less
