Celebrity Cruise Line

MV Infinity

Your Rating:Five Stars
Reviewed by: Rovert Holloway
# previous cruises: 1
Date of Trip: August 10, 2001
Itinerary: Alaska

Doing a cruise to Alaska just for the scenery is well worth it excluding the numerous excursions and ports available to you. If you have never seen what you saw in your school books about glaciers, whales and eagles then this is worth it. The overall quality of the Celebrity's service on Infinity is great and the ship is large but you can never worry about it as you can find that quiet spot.

Public Areas
The Constellation lounge on deck 12 is high up to the bow and you can watch scenery all day, listen to concerts or dance your night away. If you do want to buy a drink, no hassle. Pool on deck 10 has lots of lounge chairs with real woollen blankets. Go fwd to the Aqua Span area and rest on deck chairs enclosed by windows and sleep as warm air from Aqua pool wraps around you. Inside the Aqua area, some chairs , not a lot. Deck 11 is your walk a mile deck, lots of chairs here also and on top of Constellation lounge (deck 12 1/2 itself, more chairs with glass panels to deflect the wind. Get a great tan and see the ship dock at the bow and the heli pad.

The casino is a walk through midships, noisy and lots of glitter but folks having fun.

The Rendevous Lounge is where a lot of night entertainment area is after main shows or food tasting / wine tasting, Nice area to relax in during day but chairs are heavy to move around. Deck 4 has chairs outside to relax in and a great area to watch other ships and ice go by , your life boat deck, nice way to walk lower down on the ship.

The COVA lounge has Expreson / pastry / fine wines and an excellent harpist at night also a tea room.

Food and Service
The main dining room is the Trellis and has two seatings. Deck 4 & 5 aft stern. Food was always 4-5 star with five courses and during port days, mainly open seating for breakfast and lunch. Service was excellent with no long waits. A buffet is on deck 10 (Horizon) good selection, seats were available, staff to help you take your meals and get coffee for you. Open most of the day and evening though if you came up at 10am , long lineups as full breakfast finished around that time. Great viewing area and at the stern was an open area of about 40 teak table and chairs.

We had a Skydeck cabin with verandah (1A) deck 9. Two adults with two suitcases, all our clothes fitted in closet and suitcases under bed. We are medium and small adults both 5' 7'. The cabin also had a pull out sofa, so we had room and the bathroom was fine for one person to move around in.

We attended 6 of the 7 nights and the shows were always about 1 hour in length. It was a mix of comedy, chorus dancers, shows based on entertainment themes, singing. For us it was shows we might see over two years. It was fine, staff worked hard and performed well but I'm not a show critic just an average person who got good value..

We mainly read and lounged on the ship. We stopped at Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and toured the Hubbard Glacier at sea. Only tour we took was the Skagway Yellow Street Car for 2 hours and that was fun and well worth it. The pool is out doors with four saunas and an indoors Aqua Span, well used. A kids program was evident and normally done on deck 10 in buffet are at night with a special kids tower and area at stern. Only thing we did not like was what seemed to be lack of supervision of kids at night by staff and parents. Had some kids running on deck ten at night at 11pm or during day and we are on deck 9, majority of kids are well behaved. One night I get in the elevator with an eight year old at midnight by himself.

Who Goes
Majority were a mix of over 60, couples in 40 - 50 and lots of families with grand parents , in laws, Americans, Canadians, Australians, Asians, Spain,Britain I'd invite some we met ..
