  3. Celebrity Infinity
Pick this because of the unique schedule of ports going up the west coast to Vancouver. Celebrity Elite cruisers. Third cruise on the Infinity, from its first days in Alaska to South America and this one. Guest entertainment was very good. On board production shows were a little bit rough. Live band at shows was great. Lack of music around ship pre-dinner was noticeable. When there was good lounge entertainment the room (s) were packed. Late night constellation events were sparsely attended. Lack of daytime "enrichment events" was topic of discussion among regular Celebrity cruisers. Regular Cruise Director was off ship until San Francisco, Nacho did great job filling in. Once Alejandro was back there were less announcements and little communication except at the end of the nightly main shows. Cruise Director TV was of no value to watch. There was an attempt a sailaway party on the helipad out of San Francisco......just a bit too cool and windy (and foggy). Most left helipad once ship moved from berth. Did speciality dining in Tuscan on final night of cruise. WHAT A DISSAPOINTMENT! Service from our waiter was great, everything else, including the food was bland. The room is not very inviting (cold-stark), not a $45 upgrade environment. Main Dining room had much more atmosphere and "life". Celebrity has too many large tables for the way they do anytime dining........all two tops were given beepers----3, 4, 5, 6....no wait, unless you wanted to join a large table of 2's.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 2
Cabin C2 7181
Good location on ship near aft elevators on port side. Sliding door to balcony was showing its age---very hard to open/close. Problems with shower water temperature during entire cruise---attendant tried to fix---water pulsed from hot/warm/cold during entire shower. Drain in bathroom lavatory made constant noices (gurgle) found filling sink with water before bed made it quieter. Sofa has seen better days----once seated, hard to get out of the hole you were in from sinking down. Attendant kept cabin clean and tidy. Tried to solve problems. Otherwise very good cabin conditions.

Boarding in San Diego was terrible. Be sure to check if there are two ships that day! San Diego can handle one, but not Celebrity and Disney at the same time. 2 hours from arriving at port to boarding ship.
