  3. Celebrity Infinity
This was an 18 night cruise from San Francisco through the Panama Canal and ending Ft. Lauderdale. The infinity needs a little work in Concierge class as there was some rust on the balcony and the carpet outside needed to be repaired. The state room was up to standard and while I don't want to be too picky I my experience on other Celebrity ships was of a higher quality in terms of the condition of the ship. I did have some problems with the tv in the room and the remote but once I notified my attendant those problems were resolved in a matter of an hour or two. I think this speak to the high level of quality Celebrity wants to bring to its guests. There was also some wear and tear on several areas of the ships carpet but they were minimal and I am sure that most people did't see it at all. I tend to notice every detail so I wouldn't fault the cruise line for these minor problems. The shore excursions are fairly typical for cruise lines. They tend to be expensive and not as good as what I have been able to secure for myself. The advantage is that if there is a problem or delay you don't have to worry about the ship leaving you at port! Dining was standard, I am a foodie and therefore do not expect to receive 5 star dining when they are trying to feed such large numbers of people. Overall I felt they did a very good job in the restaurants and Ocean View, where I took the majority of my meals. The specialty restaurants (Qsine and SS United States) were good. The SS United States was my favorite and I would recommend it over Qsine any time. Qsine, offers a unique experience and one that you should try once. It just was not my cup of tea, so to speak. Entertainment on the ship was of a high quality and I really enjoyed the shows. The little talks given by the cruise line before we reached ports were less than interesting and I think the gentleman they used to describe Costa Rica and the Panama Canal was sub par. Disembarkation was easy, relatively fast and since I had a transfer from the ship to the air port I was off quickly without any glitches. Overall, I had a very good experience with the cruise line, the staff was friendly, the food was good, the accommodations meet my general expectations and when a problem arose it was resolved quickly without much effort on my part. All things considered I booked my next cruise onboard with Celebrity for the Spring of 2016. I would recommend this cruise line to a friend or family member without reservation.

Enjoyable Cruise

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 3
Cabin C3 8165
The cabin was clean, the bed was comfortable and the noise level from the other rooms did not exist. The ship did seem to squeak a bit and that made it a challenge to sleep the first few nights but I adjusted to it and by the end of the cruise it was not a problem. I think this is due to the age of the ship itself.

This cabin was located near the Aft elevators and it was my first time being that far in the back of the ship. I was convenient to have the elevators near buy but I used the stairs a lot just to burn off some of the calories.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • La Popa Monastery
    A thorough tour of the Monastery and explanation of its operations throughout the years. This was reasonable priced at less than $60 for almost a day and the bus and driver were well within standards.

  • Carmel Mission
    This was a pleasant tour of the Mission. We were given ample time to take photos of the Mission, the guide was knowledgeable of its history and took his time explaining it all to us.

  • Wine Tasting
    This was an exceptional tour as we were given endless glasses of various wines to taste and large platters of cheese and crackers to help us with all the wing they provided. I really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it without reservation.
