Celebrity Infinity Cruise Review by Brats45
- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Eastern Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Concierge Class 1
From the start on arrival to the airport , celebrity staff were very organised, not a long transfer to the ship around 30-40 mins, concierge check in was very quick, smooth all round, we were on the ship before we knew it, lovely drinks welcome on board, the ocean view cafe was open and we didn’t have to wait longer before the staterooms were ready, staterooms were comfortable enough and had toiletries in the bathroom, hairdryer and safe in the room, our stateroom attendant was very good.
Our dining room experience was amazing, we had the most amazing friendly staff who couldn’t do enough for you and it’s the first cruise after doing 6 previous cruises that we saw and spoke to our head waiter all the time, just makes the difference, the food was of good quality, some days were excellent, the favourite was the tornado steak, the lamb and lobster night just fabulous. The Ocean View Cafe, was set out around both sides, sometimes you were searching at different ends for certaIn foods, but you got used to the set up, we never struggled to find a table as there is plenty of seating, the staff again are very friendly.
The ship itself was lovely, I understand that people say it’s a little older fashioned but nothing at all that you need to worry about, we felt that all the areas, Cafe al Bacio, martini bar, cellars masters bar, were of a good standard, there is fabulous outside film area all with comfy seating showing movies everyday, the toilet areas are very clean and well stocked and the staff again are very friendly.
We loved every destination that we went to, Venice was gorgeous, gondola ride is €80 but this can take up to 6 people, so you can share the cost, what a beautiful place.
Croatia was gorgeous, we just took the hop on hop off bus for a bus tour and walking tour this was €20 pp, really good way to look around.
Kotor was just stunning, you take a tender from the ship and we just had a look around ourselves, for a few hours, wow the sail away was stunning to see.
Corfu we wanted a beach day, we missed out on the celebrity beach trip, this sells very quickly we tried to book as soon as we got on board but it was already full, the ship cost for this trip is around $40-$45 pp, so we just got off and looked for own transport, be careful as the taxi trips at the port are charging €110 for 2 which is just a rip off, here we ended up on the red tour bus at €19 pp, we stopped off at the first beach on the tour had 4 hours and then got the bus back and saw the rest of the tour which was great, beach beds to hire, reasonable cost, with bar selling drinks and food at good prices, there are also toilets at this beach, the staff were very friendly and are up and down the beach serving.
Naples we did a ship trip here, at $99pp to Pompeii we did the 1.30pm 4 hrs trip as the am one was sold out but this was perfect we had the best guide called Jose, he was very knowledgable and was passionate , he was quite funny also which made the trip brilliant, apparently we totally made the right decision to go in the afternoon as the morning one was so rammed with people it was hard to get around..
Wow this cruise was amazing we loved every minute, we will definitely be cruising with Celebrity again..
