Celebrity Infinity-any recent cruisers?

Recommended Posts

we're considering the 4-day cruise on Infinity in November. just wondering if anyone's been on her recently, and can offer any comments on the general condition of the ship ( she' s apparently Celebity's oldest), the food, any other aspects etc.?

Theres not a lot of current comments in the review sites...

We are on her now.  She is older, yes, but still in relatively good shape.  The rooms need updating, but nothing is so bad that I would complain.  We are in a Sky Suite so we eat in Luminae.  Of course, food is subjective, but we feel the food has been fabulous, up to Celebrity standards. The crew, all of them, have been very warm and friendly.  Having  great time.

Phxazz, hope you're enjoying your cruise!  I board on Wednesday, also Sky Suite.  can you please tell me who the M'D and Sommelier are in Luminae?  Also do you know who the Michael's Club concierge is?  Any info much appreciated!

thanks for the comment Phazz. enjoy the cruise!

we're looking at booking down in 'steerage'! :) lol  Deck 3. Cabin in the 31xx range. I think these were cabins added when last refurbished? so...they may be a bit 'newer"..?

not sure what Luminae is ...prob. an upcharge restaurant?

Have you eaten in the MDR or buffet at all?

We were on Infiniti in June 2018, Aqua  Class, deck 9. Food and service in Blu were excellent! Nice comfortable cabin and nice public areas. Staff up to X standards! We  thoroughly enjoyed our cruise.

Was on Infinity recently and she may be old but she has had a couple facelifts including the addition of the Movie Theater.    She is in remarkably good condition and I would have no qualms sailing her again.

I am happy to hear that she is in good shape.  We will be on Nov.1 in Aqua Class for a 4 day cruise, can't wait.  My husband and I will be relaxing, eating and enjoying a couple of beers.  I will write a review when I am back. I am sure that we will have a great time.

The MD is Bruno.  A very very nice man.  He has been great.  The Sommelier is Milo.  The Michael's Club Concierge is Shiela and she is wonderful.  Any more questions, feel free to ask and ENJOY your cruise

Luminae is the restaurant for Suite Guests only.  We have not eaten in MDR, but have ordered food in Luminae off of the MDR menu.  It has been very very good.  Put on 10 pounds so far.......

We were actually on that cruise.  The Captain did an amazing job.  We were in the Penthouse on that cruise and we came very close to hitting the ship that was already docked.  If we would have hit that ship instead of the pier it would have been much much worse.  The damage was minimal.  Nothing to be concerned about !!!

Thanks for your reply! you disembarked today? Was Milo helpful? I always rely on the Sommelier to help me chose something suitable, I always find them super  helpful and they seem to know exactly what to serve me by Day 2!

no, we do not disembark until Wednesday morning  Honestly, Mia was good, but not one of the best sommeliers we have had.  enjoy your cruise

The current Cruise Director is Luigi De La Cruz and the current Guest Relations Director is a lovely woman named Eunice Teixeira.  They do not, however, publish their email addresses.  Sorry

They would receive too many emails with too many questions.  not enough time in the day for them as it is.....   Luigi is his name, I am not pulling your leg. 🙂
