Infinity cruise ship review with photos

The eight days at sea invariably start the same. Without an alarm clock in sight, we wake up at a reasonable hour, venture outside on the balcony for a live weather report, shower, get dressed and then venture up two decks to the Oceanview Café. Here, we can have breakfast anywhere between 6AM (too early) and 11.30AM (too late). Wonderful!

Weather permitting, we enjoy our breakfast sitting outside on the aft deck with its teak furniture and ocean breezes. It does get quite chilly on some sea days, but we are never alone out there as the views of the endless ocean are simply mesmerizing. And so is breakfast. Name it and they have it! And with nowhere to go, why not get another cup of

coffee, perhaps one more chocolate croissant and simply watch the ocean. There's nothing better. The good thing is: this is one buffet restaurant where you will feel completely at ease for hours. But if you feel a sudden urge for some activity, Infinity has enough on offer. Best place to go for retail therapy is the enormous Emporium shopping center. Spanning the width of Entertainment Deck and stretching all the way from the Grand Foyer to the forward stairwell, this is one BIG shopping center. Too bad the standard assortment is not really in line with the more upscale Celebrity feel.

And when you're tired of shopping, it's only a few feet to the Cova Café Milano. Overlooking the Grand Foyer and done in a very elegant yet colorful decor, this is the perfect place to order a frothy cappuccino. If you arrive mid-morning, they even throw in a complimentary Danish. But ... they do make you pay for the coffee!
