Infinity cruise ship review with photos - Stateroom

Having booked this cruise more than a year ahead, we were able to secure one of the coveted aft family staterooms. Infinity has twelve of these staterooms that each has an incredibly large balcony. With a separate living room and bedroom, lots of wardrobe space and a secluded location, our stateroom is more like an apartment at sea. Will we ever want to leave it?

Having scanned the deck plan and various reports on the Internet, we book cabin 8181, one of the largest of its kind. Equipped with its own door bell, the stateroom is reached through a private corridor. A wall of wardrobes and a private shower and toilet give way to the bedroom with two twins or one double bed and a large vanity with TV and DVD player.

Partitioned off by a sliding wall is the living area with two sofas (both convert to beds at night) and another TV. Oh, and more storage space! A floor to ceiling glass door leads out to the balcony. We've saved the best for last, 'cause our balcony is ... well ... like a private open deck! Spoilt for life, we spend a lot of time out on our own 'lanai', soaking up rays, listening to music, having breakfast. And dinner! Walking out on deck first thing in the morning after arriving in yet another Hawaiian port ... it must be the ultimate luxury! And to add to the luxury, our cabin attendants are professional, friendly and fun. Yes, this surely must be Balcony Bliss
