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! .

Cabin Review

Ocean View 6
Cabin 06 3092
Our oceanview cabin was roomy and we were able to store our luggage under the bed. We had plenty of storage space in all the cabinets. The only thing we would want are more hangers in the closets. Bed was comfortable; however we wondered how often the bedding is changed? Celebrity could go a long way in adding a self service laundry room on the ship like Carnival; laundry service presently is fairly expensive!
