September 2016 - Celebrity Infinity to Transpacific
We booked this cruise for the itinerary. Started in Vancouver Canada and ended in San Francisco. The ports were good! The cruising in between was very slow. The on board activities were fine. Much the same as usual. (Exception.... Casino.... It was not very well managed. There were daily poker games listed in the itinerary but on the whole cruise there was only one table game that was played in 11 days. We tried to get the room manager to promote the game but.... not interested. Crap table had a $10 minimum and was totally empty the entire cruise. Why not bump it down to $5 and have some people actually play? Just a thought.) We've been on the Infinity several times. We had heard that it had been retrofitted. Not so much. It's dated. The new aft area is an improvement but has terrible seating for the movies/games on the big screen. I've never been a fan of cruise food. The buffet is awful! I can truly say that I went away hungry after any buffet meal. I don't mean to be a negative Nellie! On the whole we had a very nice experience but it was due to the ports. I had intended to book another cruise while we were on the ship, but the people in the Future Cruise Office were so off putting and unhelpful, I decided that it's time to explore another cruise line. (We're Captain's Cruise Elite.) Gee... after re-reading my post.... I guess I AM a negative Nellie! Sorry about that! I've always been a Celebrity cruiser. This last one just wasn't up to par.
