Celebrity Infinity

January 2016 - Celebrity Infinity to South America

Incomparable service

"Since the 2011 refurbish, much has changed for the ship.  Infinity's most visible alterations focus on the Decks 4 and 5 social hub, which forms a two-floor, shiplong link between the main dining room (aft) and theater (forward). The focus is on casual food and drink options. The old Martini Bar has been replaced with a new version, with a shaved ice-topped bar and juggling bartenders. Cellar Masters, a wine venue has replaced the original Champagne Bar. Bistro on Five, a for-fee creperie that was a surprise hit on Solstice-class ships, has been added to Deck 5. Infinity's old coffee bar has been redone, and the line has added a gelateria. Despite these alterations, the ship still retains much of what has made it a fan favorite, stylistically, for more than a decade. The whimsical art, use of natural woods and lots of glass, especially in the stunning Solarium, have always lent Celebrity Infinity and its sisters an elegant, contemporary air. Those touches remain. So too does the high passenger-to-crew ratio, which has earned the line high marks for service. It's a ship for people who like to linger over dinner, sip a drink in a comfy lounge while listening to music (or doing a bit of ballroom dancing), take in a show or lounge by a pool; high-octane partying and crazy outdoor activities (waterslides, surfing, ropes courses) are not Infinity's hallmarks. At 2,170 passengers -- compared with 2,850 on the Solstice-class vessels -- those looking for a more intimate Celebrity experience will do well to consider the "mid-sized" Millennium Class. While you give up the Lawn Club area and slightly larger cabins and public areas, you're also not overwhelmed with a dizzying array of extra-fee restaurants (six on Silhouette to Infinity's three). And with Infinity's port-intensive itineraries, sometimes it's nice to have a ship that complements, rather than competes with, the destination" (Cruise Critic, 2016)
