STANTON - Answered a Question by Benham (02 Jul 08 21:25)

Hi - we too are sailing to Alaska in Sept 08 and i understand your concerns after reading some of the reviews! However, we went to Hawaii on the Infinity a couple of years ago and it was one of the nicest ships we have been on. The food was excellent - we never had a bad meal, we enjoyed the entertainment, we had a balcony cabin which was very comfortable, everything was spotlessly clean and the staff could not do enough for you - beware of the art auctions - we ended up with 17 paintings and prints and we only went along just to have a nose around ha ha!! We loved it, had a holiday of a lifetime and met all sorts of wonderful people and had no hesitation in booking the Alaskan cruise, as we had been on the ship before. Everyone has their own opinion of course but i seriously was beggining to wonder if there were 2 Infinitys from some of the reviews!! I guess some people arent happy unless they can moan about something! S0, do not fret, you will enjoy it and maybe we will meet on the ship!!

Celebrity is one of the best cruise lines in it's catagory. Infinity is a great ship. Unless you want casual, hooting and roaring or uncivilised company stay exactly where you are....booked with a great ship and cruise line. If I were you I'd worry more about crossing the road in foreign parts than that cruise......Nei.

Everyone has mixed views about different cruise lines and ships, mainly because people have higher standards than others and also because all they every do is complain, even at the slightest thing. Celebrity is as neil said, one of THE best 5 star cruise lines and will not fail you. I have cruised on galaxy before and had a splendid time, as did the many friends I met on board. Enjoy.

Conde Naste readers have voted the 4-Millennium class ships - of which Infinity is one - the 4 best cruise ships in the world for the umteenth year in a row. You have nothing to worry about.

Probably one of the best ships we have sailed in,you will have a great time,the food was very good,staff very attentive especially on my wife's birthday,but if you don't like dressing up now and again,then you can still do your own thing,but you will miss out on terrific food,and I'm a fussy eater.you will also miss out meeting friends who at present strangers. Enjo.

We cruised with Celebrity on "Infinity" to Alaska last August and had a great time. The ship is fine, lots of space, clean, good and varied food, helpful crew. Dont worry about the ship or the itinerary, just go and enjoy yourself. If you really want an unforgetable holiday either start or finish with a trip through the Rockies by train.

Have just been the Ultimate Alaska cruise on Infinity from San Francisco for 11 days - we had a Sky Suite complete with butler - all was wonderful - don't listen to the moaners: by the way, if you have any suite accommodation, you do not queue at length, we were boarded within 10-15 minutes of arrival - a cruise is what you make of it - some people go with the intention of finding faults and not attempting to speak to fellow travellers of staff - we have been on five celebrity cruises and have not had any major problems at all - forget the moaners! just go and enjoy.

Off to Rockley

By Gemma Coles

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...
