  3. Celebrity Infinity
My DH and I have been on four cruises all on RCL, and although we weren't planning on going on a cruise this fall, we found a great, relatively last minute deal on a 4 night Celebrity Infinity Bahamas cruise that we couldn't pass up. Overall we had a wonderful time and are glad we tried Celebrity! Booking- We booked directly through the Celebrity website. Right after final payment due date the price for our room dropped by $350- a huge difference for such a short cruise! I called Celebrity and managed to negotiate an additional $300 OBC to account for this price change. Very happy with this! Embarkation- We left out of terminal 4 at Port Everglades. We arrived at the port around 10:30 and pretty much walked on. Very smooth process! We got our Seapass cards during the checkin instead of having them left at the room- I prefer getting them right away to be able to use them for drinks, etc. Ship/Cabin- The ship is the smallest we've been on BY FAR (next smallest was RCL Navigator OTS) and we loved it! It is beautiful and I didn't notice its age at all. Layout was great. Plenty of bar options we quick service. Never crowded. Cabin was smallish (we had the cheapest category balcony- sweet 16 balcony room 6030) but nicely decorated but it was a little dated- lots of mirrors! We enjoyed the large-ish shower (compared with the RCL pods, which we like too!). We didn't have any issues with water leakage although we did hear the sound of water running quite often- maybe we were near some pipes or utility sink area, I'm not sure. Dining- We ate at Qsine (Le Petit Chef), Tuscan Grille and Sushi on 5. All were good, Qsine was our favorite. We thought the food was comparable to RCL and were slightly disappointed as we had expected to be wowed in this area. We also ate at MDR once for dinner which was fine- also comparable to RCL and definitely a step below the specialty dining. Buffet was great for breakfast, my DH enjoyed having lox every morning and there was a surprising variety of selections for such a small ship in my opinion. Bars- Bar service was great with minimal waits even at the busiest times. We had the premium package and never paid for a drink except upgraded wine at dinner once. We also were never asked to sign a receipt which we thought was different because usually my DH likes to tip an extra buck or two this way. Also never saw anyone tip cash. We aren't complaining but this was very different from our RCL experiences! We liked the Martini Bar but I guess we weren't there often enough to see the crazy bartender tricks that I have seen videos of from others. Pool- Pools were good- we enjoyed the deep saltwater pool. The thelasatherapy pool in the solarium also looked interesting but I never got to try it. We didn't have a problem finding chairs ever, and we even saw little Celebrity signs left on some chairs notifying people that their items were taken to Guest Services because they were unattended- great to see Celebrity trying to cut down on chair hogs! Entertainment- We loved the Silent Disco! Enjoyed the Halloweern decorations and activities as we were on the ship for that night. They even had a really fun costume contest! The live music during the day was a bit subdued and we would have liked to have a more lively option either by the pool or somewhere inside. Overall this line definitely seems more subdued with entertainment compared to RCL, but at the same time the evenings were lively at the dance club and Martini Club and there were clearly people there ready to have a good time. We didn't see any evening shows except the comedian and we enjoyed him. Overall we had a great time on this ship!

First time on Celebrity - fun Halloween cruise to the Bahamas!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Balcony 2A
Cabin 2A 6030
This cabin has a larger "sweet 16" balcony. We had 3 chairs and a small table out there. No loungers although their was room for them. The balcony is half covered and half un-covered so you are visible to those above you if you are standing at the rail. However I never saw anyone out there when I was out there. The balcony door was hard to open and close. No leaking or other issues in the bathroom altough we often heard the sound of water running in there- sounding like it was coming from either below or next to the room- it wasn't a bother but just something to note. Maybe there are pipes or a utility sink drain that run nearby. Very clean.
