  3. Celebrity Infinity
We picked this cruise based on the itinerary. Three days in Rio during Carnaval was a chance to enjot Rio in a more relaxing way than flying in and staying at a hotel. We liked the Infinity, we never felt crowded, even on sea days there were places to sit and we never waited for Select Dining - just showed up and were seated in less than a minute. We only ate in the buffet when the dining room was closed. Although the breakfasts in the dining room did not change, we both found enough variety and enjoyed the leisurely style and great service there. The entertainment in the Theatre was good but I expected more South American entertainers instead of British and US shows almost every night. Although the Cruise Director gave a brief Spanish translation for the Spanish speakers, much of the show must have been difficult to understand, especially the jokes. Tendering was handled well with little delays and we had enough time in each port to get a feel for the area. We had a 5 meal dinner package and really enjoyed Qzine and Sushi on 5. We were disappointed with the Tuscan Grill. I could not see anything beyond a regular meal in the dining room despite the upcharge. We appreciated all the staff we met who were pleasant, helpful and professional.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 2
Cabin C2 8103
The cabin was clean and felt quite roomy. Great bed and nice shower. Our cabin attendant was fast, unobtrusive and efficient.

We enjoyed the afternoon snacks as well as the speedy embarkation.
