  3. Celebrity Infinity
This was our 3rd cruise, but 1st on Celebrity; it's now our favorite line. The food was very very good, above expectations. There is a high ratio of crew to guests and they really do take excellent care of you. Our waiter/assistant waiter in the dining room had only 3 tables to take care of, for example, and the room steward had only 10 rooms. The staff all seem very happy to be doing what they're doing. The shows at night were a step above the other lines we tried. And at last, at last there was someone on board to tell us about the ports, culture, history, and wildlife we might be visiting... not just the shopping. Now that said, this was clearly best for adults. There weren't nearly as many kid and teen activities as we saw on RC or Norwegian. For an adult, though, the enrichment activities onboard were an unexpected pleasure. Again, hats off to the crew of the Infinity; they made this trip memorable. Oh, and going through the Panama Canal, then down to Chile was a memorable experience. Cartagena was hot, as was Panama, but the weather going south in December was really great. And Chile... wow, what an awesome country. I want to go back there! Avoid the snorkeling excursion in Ecuador, though; the coral is all bleached. There are still some beautiful fish in the area but it's not much of a reef anymore. I guess with climate change we'd better visit the good reefs while we can; our grandchildren may only be able to read about them in their schoolbooks one day :-( .

A Wonderful Experience

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 1
Cabin C1 8076
What a great cabin this was: relatively spacious, high up, and very well kept (by Rosario). Next time I would pick a port cabin for this trip, though, as the land is nearly all to the east going down.
