We chose this ship because we wanted to do the Panama Canal crossing and the timing and price was right. Overall the ship is good. The cabins are roomy enough, have enough closet space, etc. The Cruise Director was great...plenty of activity if you desired. The entertainment was very good in the evenings as well as during the day. The ship has a lot of stuff going on all day. The guest lecturer, Bill Fell, was one of the best we have ever had on any ship. We had a few primary areas of concern: The food in the main dining room was poor. The selections made choices difficult and the food, for the most part was blah in taste. The portions of the main entree were amazingly small...and we are not big eaters. Our second issue is that just about EVERYTHING on this ship is an uncharge sale. In the main restaurant, if you wanted more than a paper thin steak (which was on the menu daily), go for it, for a $15 or so up charge. Our biggest issue was that we dined in the specialty restaurants on a regular basis because the food in those dining rooms were quite good (especially Quisine and the Italian restaurants). The cost to dine there was approximately $35 per person....so much greater than any of the other 7 lines we have sailed on. And then, even after paying that up charge.....they try to uncharge you again for premium entrees! While disembarking the ship was easy on port days, regaining entry usually had a long line as only one of the two machines to verify identify were used at any one time. Way too long in hot weather. Lastly, due to the increasingly frequent occurrence of onboard respiratory ailments (thankfully not on our cruise) we have found that in the buffet area, most of the other lines do not allow guests to help themselves. Reason being is that then the serving utensils are handled by 100's of passengers and the opportunity for sickness much greater. Although the Infinity were constantly squirting us to sanitize our hands, I think that the staff should be serving the dishes rather than having people poking their arms and faces under the glass to gain access to the dishes. Overall, many of us felt that this cruise had too many sea days...most likely to get you to buy, buy, buy!
