I'd like to see a few more lectures or entertainment on sea days. We did enjoy all that was offered.

Waiters, room stewards, bar tenders and all the staff I encountered went above and beyond the entire 15 we were onboard.

Ship tip

Previous revies mented the ship appearing to be worn and tired. So I was looking for that. I even asked others onboard if they noticed anything that made them feel that way. No one could find anything, anywhere on the ship that fit that discription. I saw nothign that appeared to be worn. We found the Infinity to be in Tip Top shape.

This was absolutely fascinating! I thought it might be quite interesting for an engineer, but it was an amazing experiance for even an average female.

Puntarenas, Costa Rica

We enjoyed a private all day tour with "Thumbs Up Tours" in Puntaenas. Our local guide was so awesome we loved the enter tour. My roommate accidently left her wallet in the vehicle. They found it before leaving the port area and made sure it was returned to her before we sailed away.

Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala

5 out of 5
This was my favorite port. We booked a ship sponsered tour to Antiqua that included an amazing lunch. Antigua is at a higher altitude, so it was cool and breee there.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
Puerta Vallarta is a very commercial port. Very pretty with plenty of shopping (Even Walmart & Costco). I enjoyed a tequilla tasting and incredible Mariachi show. Much more elaborate than those we see in the restaurants here in the US. That was followed by a very nice lunch in an open air, beachfront restaurant.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
Absolutely stunning scenery! Don't miss a chance to get out on the water to see the rock formatiopns up close.

San Diego, California

We had to go straight to the airport and did not have to to enjoy San Diego
