  1. Has or when will Infinity being revolutionized?
  2. We are a group of 10 women currently booked 5 cabins CC (all 5 together) on the April 6, 2020 Infinity. This sailing has been removed from inventory for well over a week. I was assured all is good but I attempted to book a private sailing excursion in Key West and he stated he does not have Infinity in Key West on April 7 but does April 15. That would be for the April 11 sailing. Anyone aware of this sailing being chartered? This is my third attempt as previous 2 have been chartered also.
  3. We just booked a 5 night inside gty on Infinity for NYE (got too good a deal to pass up)...does anyone have recent experience with an inside on this ship? Any idea if anything special happens on the ship for NYE? Thanks!
  4. We are thinking of taking our adult kids (23 & 30) and their SO on a family cruise in January, 2021. We have never been on Infinity, and I was wondering if it is as great as Summit? We have sailed X many times, and it is our cruise line of choice. I know Infinity is going into dry dock at the end of 2020 so she will be all pretty and new. Just wondering if there is anything that would be good to know specifically about this ship. Thanks.
  5. I just received a call that our cruise on the Infinity April 16-20, 2020 has been cancelled due to the ship being chartered. Its ridiculous that they cancelled our cruise and offered $100 OBC. What about flight cancellations etc.?
  6. Background: We are so excited to be headed on the 4th annual Flower Power Cruise. This will be our third one - we enjoyed the other two so much that we had to come back this year. On the previous two FPC's we had an amazing time being with 2000 mostly like-minded people. These cruises are a celebration of the 60's music and the culture of the "Love Generation." Most people were 50’s-70’s (must be > 18 to book), although there were some were in their 20's-40's who were thoroughly enjoying the cruise - some came with parents and some came on their own because they loved the music of the 60's and 70's. Even the usual Muzak background music was 60’s and 70’s music, which was like a balm to my soul. Almost everyone was singing along in the hallways and elevators because we all knew every word of the songs. The staff commented on how much they liked the music too and heard it in the crew quarters as well. Everyone talked about the peace and love onboard – there seemed to be more patience and helpfulness among the guests than usual – a sense of community. The line-up this year: Cruise Itinerary on the Infinity: We left Vermont yesterday and headed to Fort Lauderdale for a couple days prior to the cruise. Luckily there were no impending snowstorms so we flew without any issues. We flew Delta this time and had good flights. I was a bit nervous about the flights and airport because I had a hamstring tear a few weeks ago and a relapse last week, where it was difficult to walk. I even thought of staying home and sending my DH alone at one point. By Wednesday, the pain had improved some and I decided to go - I'm glad I did because everything went well. I upgraded to Comfort + so that I had plenty of room to do my PT exercises and elevate it, when needed. The connection at JFK went well, with our plane's gate near the shuttle to the next flight gate. I brought my special cane, in case needed (I decorated it for the Flower Power Cruise). 🙂 We are staying at the Riverside Hotel on Las Olas Blvd. It is the FPC hotel so is starting to fill with hippies this afternoon! What a great place this is! Besides being very friendly and comfortable, it is a beautiful 80 year old hotel, with many of the old features maintained. Lots of Art Deco touches and lovely art. Our room is large, with couch and chair and good-sized dining table and chairs. The furniture is older, but comfortable. We slept like babies last night. The balcony is long and wraps around the corner where we can see the ships in port. Harmony was the only one out there today. The balcony also has a table that can be used for dining and comfortable chairs. The view, which I thought would just be a city view, actually includes the New River. We can see boats going up and down the river (? canal), including the Water Taxi, which stops beside the hotel. There is also a river walk out there. It has been fun watching all the action. The Port View: For lunch, we went to the Boathouse Restaurant, which is across the road from the hotel. It is on the waterfront and has great view of the boats passing by and wonderful food and drink! I enjoyed my crab cake and my DH had the mahi mahi sandwich. Both were excellent! Nice view of the waterway (the sun did finally come out!): The pool was a lovely place to go in the afternoon. We had dinner at the Wild Sea Oyster Bar and Grille in the hotel on the terrace. It was happy hour from 5-7 so got 1/2 price drinks and East Coast oysters. DH was very happy with his platters of raw oysters. I stuck with cooked food. I had the seafood chowder, which was decadent and corvina (a very nice white fish) that was beautifully prepared and DH had the black bass, which was reportedly delicious. We were stuffed so decided to go for house-made gelato for dessert. Wow! I was just going to cleanse my palette so we got one dish and two spoons. It was so good! There was live music there during dinner and eating on the terrace made for great people watching. We ended the evening at Preston's Lounge (in the hotel) for drinks, with piano music and a pretty bar: My DH was looking at this suit in a hotel shop for Chic Night (including the blue suede shoes): 😉 We headed back to the room and enjoyed our balcony view once more: Today we are taking it easy before the next 7 fast-paced days of music and fun. We ordered room service and had really good breakfast wraps (1 between the two of us would have sufficed and already decided to do that tomorrow). We are really enjoying the balcony and it felt good to sit outside sipping tea and enjoying the view. We are eating at Indigo tonight (also within the hotel) where they will have live music - a Motown theme. We love this place!! View of the river this morning: What a difference a day makes - the sun is amazing. A lovely, relaxing afternoon!! The DH is headed to CVS to get our two bottles of wine. They gave us the number of a liquor store that will deliver wine here for free (what a great idea), but he needs to go to CVS anyway. We are so looking forward to boarding the Infinity tomorrow. We will be in AQ 1106. We have only been in the way aft AQ on M Class (over the bar), so will be a bit different. We won't have the great balcony, but it was meant to be since I will be very close to the elevator. 🙂 We are looking forward to seeing our buddies that we met on the FPC last year. We have been texting ever since - they are in Blu as well so will be dining with them much of the time. It's funny, but Blu was pretty empty last year - I think people would rather eat in the MDR or OVC, so good for us! We had a back window table every night last year and extremely attentive service. I hope they don't discover how good Blu is this year! 😉 I did book Le Petite Chef (I know I said I would never do it again), but this menu looks so much better than the Edge (it's the original one) so booked it to have a change of pace. I'm not sure if we will do Tuscan or not - we have had some great experiences in Tuscan and some not so great ones over the years. Be sure to throw out your Infinity or FPC questions. It sounds like the WiFi might be spotty from recent reports, but I will try to report in between the music and festivities. Peace and love to Cruise Critic readers!! ✌
  7. Hi there, does anyone know the bed arrangement of 3 in a room for celebrity infinity? My mom and I want to bring my 15 year old niece on a cruise. Is it a bunk that pulls down from the ceiling? Or a sofa bed? Just wasn’t sure if a 15 year old girl could fit comfortably. And also don’t want one of those bunks over the main beds. We are looking at verendah or concierge. Thanks so much
  8. Hi we have just upgraded to deck 6 OV so on looking for photos I have found that cabin 6008 has the bed headboard below the window. Are all Desk OV like that or is it only because this is a cabin for 4. We have 6004 and 6012 that I think will not be like that as are adapted cabins but we also have 6002 and 6010 which I am now just hoping are seat next to window layout - from the plans neither have upper berths - Can anyone comment on the possible layout?
  9. I am looking at a January, 2020 cruise on Celebrity Infinity. The only Sky suites available are located on Deck 6, Penthouse deck. Below the stateroom would be Cellar Masters on Starboard side or Sushi on Five on the Port side. Would there be noise from either one of these that we might hear while in our stateroom? Also, if I pick a stateroom on deck 6 port side could there be cigarette smoke from deck 5? Thanks in advance for your comments.
  10. Hi all ... We sailed in a Cat 9, midship inside cabin on the Infinity and just loved it. We were in cabin 7903 and our friends in 7901. The cabins were much larger than the normal inside cabins and the layout was very unique to each one of these cabins as well. There was also one to the side of us, 7905 and three just below us on deck six. Anyway, the unique layout and size of these cabins made an inside cabin very palatable. Now, I am looking at the deck plans on the Summit and they also have cabins in the same places but the deck plans don't show them to be the larger cabins as on the Infinity. I can find no specific information or even one review on these cabins on here or FB or google ... not anywhere. Can anyone confirm if these cabins are the same size as the ones on the Infinity and if so, any other particular pros and cons of staying in one of these cabins?
  11. After many years of absence , Infinity came again at Piraeus
  12. We are aboard Silhouette and Qsine is Le Petite Chef. The menu is very limited and the space is closed and unappealing to us. We've decided to forego a dinner there. When we were on the Infinity a few years back Qsine had quite an extensive and exotic menu. The restaurant was located at the top of the ship with remarkable views. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience then. We are booked on the Millennium in December 2019 and wondering which Qsine will be on board. If anyone is currently onboard and would care to take a picture of the iPad menu, that would be much appreciated!! Thanks for any info... trying to decide if we'll buy a multiple night package of specialty dinning.
  13. Why is it that we can book a 17 day cruise to Morocco on November 14 2020. When she’s suppose to be refurbished then. Anyone ?
  14. Looks like she's going to be dry docked next year. There's an itinerary we like that's prior to the refurbishment but we're not willing to go on a worn out ship. That's relative, I know, so here's what we found on Constellation that we felt was not ok. Skysuite (2 yrs in a row) had seriously stained/dirty loveseats, worn out top sheets. Pics below are from this year. The ship itself is tired, but we're ok with that. So reviews re Infinity are fairly poor, but we were on her 3 years ago and didn't have concerns. Just wondering about her status now. Anyone in a sky suite feel if was iffy?

  16. I apologize in advance if this has been asked previously, but I searched and couldn't find the answer. How many formal/evening chic nights are on the 7 night Eastern Med and Adriatic cruise and when are they? My cruise begins in Civitavecchia on July 20 and ends in Venice on July 27. Thank you. 😉
  17. Anyone out there signed up for the June 13 to 21, 2020 European sail on Celebrity's Infinity? We signed up for this quite some time ago, when it was originally June 14 - 21, 2020. HERE'S THE PROBLEM / QUESTION I have. The website is not listing any excursions at all for the June 13 - 21, 2020 sail. And our online registration for this sail is still listed as June 14 - 21, 2020. I've spoken with Celebrity because of the date mix-up and specifically explained there are no excursions at all listed for this June 13 - 21 sail; and our registration does not have the new dates online. HAS ANYONE ELSE SIGNED UP FOR THE June 13 - 21, 2020 sail on the Infinity? IF SO, ARE YOU ABLE TO ACCESS SHORE EXCURSIONS FOR THIS SAIL? Thanks in advance for answering!
  18. Does anyone have any photos of cabins 6901,6903,6905 or 7901, 7903 or 7905. These are the large interior cabins. They look to be considerably larger than the standard insides on the deck plans. Any info on these cabins would be most appreciated. I've tried a forum search, google search and youtube and no photos/videos are available. Thank you!
  19. I booked the October 2019 Panama Canal cruise, 15 nights in a C2 or better guarantee cabin. I was recently selected 6135 which seems to have a huge balcony. Has anyone stayed in this type of stateroom? Should I ask to change? I have not been on this ship before.
  20. Hello, I am trying to plan a short cruise 3-4 nights in February 2019. I've been on about 15+ cruises. Mostly NCL, then Princess, RCCL, and a few Carnival. I love going on NCL, and enjoyed Princess. I am a fan of larger ships with more action, and newer boats. My question is the following. Right now for that time frame what works for me is either 1) Celebrity Infinity 2) NCL Sky (been on it before, not bad for a tiny no frills ship), I do have Platinum on NCL 3) RCCL Mariner of the seas (I was on the Navigator when it was first launched, so I know that format, also been on Oasis, and Freedom) The reason for me posting is right now, I can't decide if the Celebrity Infinity will be too old / date of a ship, after reading a lot of bad reviews? Anyone have any thoughts? If we went on it, with their promotion, I would basically get a balcony for the same price as an inside on the SKY and inside on the Mariner. We normally do Balcony, and already have a trip planned later this year, but trying to do a "budget" cruise. Thanks for your input
  21. We are a group of 15 sailing on Infinity in July. Many of us are used to packing light and using the laundry facilities. I understand Infinity doesn't have any laundry rooms.....does anyone know if a laundry package is offered and how much? Not having much luck with the search function. Thanks in advance!
  22. Looking at 2 cruises both June 2020. One in Infinity one in Constellation. Never been on any M class ships. What would people recommend? Pay a lower cost for Infinity or higher cost for Constellation that will have been tarted up? Am I right in saying that Constellation will come out looking the same as Summit with new decor, bathrooms and hard solid balcony dividers? Thanks
  23. It is time to hit the seas again and we are so in need of a cruise. While we don't suffer from severe cold winters like many, it has been a very wet but mild El Nino winter in Northern California. We initially booked the TA cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona, but ended up adding on a short 5 day Caribbean prior to the crossing. While we don't leave for 3 days, I thought I would start getting the blog started. Please feel free to jump in also ask questions. I will try to fulfill all requests. First up is the Itineraries -
  24. Just wanted to give anyone looking to book Infinity in 2020 a heads-up: It has been chartered for the Smooth Jazz cruise(s) on the following dates: Jan 18-25, and March 14-21. The folks who put on the SJC also do other jazz charters -- so more dates may be disappearing from Infinity's 2020 inventory. Also, anyone interested in booking one of the Smooth Jazz sailings -- a quick Google search will take you to the website, with all of the necessary info. Also, there is an ongoing discussion of 'music cruises', over on the 'Specialty Cruising' boards. :cool:
  25. Tonight we did Le Petit Chef. Watch the video to see our view. Feel free to pose questions. https://youtu.be/uS43s5t4G90
