Infinity - Celebrity Cruises - cruise ship review and photos

Some cruises start out perfectly. Having finished all check-in paperwork online from the comfort of our homes, we arrive by taxi at the San Pedro pier around 1 PM. We hand over our luggage, walk in and are directed to the online check-in line. The good thing: there is no line! Within 10 minutes after arriving at the pier we set foot on Infinity, our home for the next two weeks.

Grand Foyer

Infinity's throbbing heart is its elegant three deck high Grand Foyer. Similar to the ones found on her sister ships, this hotel-like lobby features a beautiful backlit onyx grand staircase and a pleasing, restful ambiance. During embarkation, there is live music and uniformed staff are available to escort passengers to their cabins.

An hour or so before departure, the emergency signal sounds and we are all expected out on deck at our lifeboat station for the emergency drill. Then, a blast on the horn signals the start of our transoceanic voyage east. As the sun sets and the evening fog rolls in from the Pacific, Infinity sets course for Hawaii.
