Celebrity Infinity Cruise Review by ghstudio
- Sail Date: March 2018
- Destination: South America
- Cabin Type: Concierge Class 2
We had guest speakers...talking about arctic exploring and auto racing....even though this was a panama canal cruise. No talks on the panama canal (or any other port)...pretty clear that celebrity just wanted to find two speakers on most any topic.
We saw the introduction of the new aqua spa cafe...nothing cooked to order, you just order from a fixed menu and they prepare your small plate on the spot. This is about the fourth try at change for that venue....at some point, they'll get it right.
Select dining worked well on our cruise...almost no wait at all as long as you are willing to dine with others. Something new on our cruise (and perhaps on others), we had a menu, but there was a chef's special entree almost every night...and those were really good (and well seasoned). Hope this becomes a standard offering.
I would not avoid the infinity (or other M-class ships), but at this point, given similar itineraries, I'd book one of the S-class ships first. Prior to the conversion of aft deck 12 to an open air theater with movies running from 10AM to midnight, we actually preferred deck 11 aqua cabins on the M-class to other options...but no more because we use our balcony and like quiet. If the itinerary fits what you want, you'll have a good time on the infinity (or other m-class ship), but be prepared to find reminders that it's getting pretty long on the tooth.

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)no global entry, but they routed us to a special fast path line....so it worked out OK. No customs inspection at all...but I think they may do random checks.View All 1,922 Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades) Cruise Port Reviews

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)I think every cruise in the Caribbean stops in Grand Cayman...and after you've seen sting ray city, there's not much to do. We only get off to wander around and shop (not for bargains...they get too many visitors to bargain very much)..View All 3,387 Grand Cayman (Georgetown) Cruise Port Reviews

LimaWe booked a private excursion (for less than Celebrity wanted to see the same sites which would have required two tours). The port is awful and unsafe...with warnings everywhere about leaving on your own. The city is interesting...worth seeing once (with a guide).View All 93 Lima Cruise Port Reviews
