Default what's happen on the Infinity

Hello:
We are thinking about going on the Infinity cruise, from Hawaii to mexcio for our honymoon!
Can anyone tell me what the age group is on the Infinity? We are in our late 20's
What's free?
How are the shows?
What class of balcony should we go with? and where on the ship?
And lastly how's the food?
Thanks all,

Sounds like you might need to pick up a good book on cruising, in the travel section of your local book store or at your public library. They will answer ALL your questions, and a lot you didn't think of. It will give you first time cruisers a very good idea as to what to expect about life on ship, your cabin, the ports of call and what to do there, what to pack, and what to look out for. A ton of information, that you can then pack in your bag and bring with you to read on the plane or ship for reference.
Buy a good inexpensive cruise book!!!

Hiya we just returned from a Panama Canal cruise on the infinity.....our age group ranged from 34-58....however the general age of passengers was 50 and up.....this has it's advantages and disadvantages.....It is a quieter ship, one can have alone time, and there isn't a constant party, however there are fewer activities, dancing but not a "disco/techno type club", and it is generally more low key.

Sodas aren't free, but packages available. Food - such as buffet, alt buffet by the T-pool, burger/veggie/turkey burger bar, sushi(soso), snacks, room service, reg b,l, d are free(becuase you've prepaid)....Alcohol isn't...ranging from $5.50(+)....

Internet is .75/min or packages available...or if used less, go to the i-cafes off the boat for a lot cheaper.

We had 7145....a cabin with a veranda....not huge but nice to wake up to, sleep with open sliding door, etc....I'd always recommend a veranda, just for a little more space.

The shows were good...better as they went along...the specialties being a british singer Lindsey(forgot last name), a classical violinist, and a comedian. There were also a comedian/musician, and the backup band. There was a men's quartet group which perormed in small lounges, a classical quartet, the multi-genre caribbean style band who played on deck a lot...they were a lot of fun.

The spa area if you go there is wonderful(next to a good gym area) and has some wonderful masseuses...Daniella and Alecia (deep and stone massages)

Food - a pretty good variety....The buffet area has a variety of hot and cold dishes- salads, potato things, towards the back- omlettes in morning, mexican or italian for lunch, sushi in the evening - Also gelato styled ice cream, and constant desserts.
The lighter/healthier fare by the T-pool has a really good pasta salad, tuna, black bean pockets, fruit-type of desserts. The burger bar (by the main pools) has reg burgers, turkey, boca, and hot dogs, and some kind of pasta.
The main dining room we only ate dinner at - The lamb and beef dishes according to my tablemates were excellent and tender. The salmon was usually moist...The white fishes alternated between over and undercooked. The pastas served with certain dishes were bland. The chicken was moist. The salads not bad with a variety of dressings although they only brought out balsalmic twice. Desserts as usual, good, filling....a variety. There are all kinds of drinks available...from beers, to martini bar,to wines,after dinner drinks....though they don't hound one as they might on other boats.

There is a small but beautiful conservatory where one can purchase flowers, a mp3 music area, various game rooms, cafe/minibar areas, pool areas.....a paddle tennis/volleyball/basketball area up-top.

All in all the fun on and off the boat is what you make it, so have a great honeymoon and congrats!

Hi,

Is the room service full menu for all meals?

Can you get a full breakfast?

Lou

Don't take this as an insult, but "Cruising for Dummies" is a great book for first-time cruisers.

I've read it from cover to cover and it's a good book with everything you need to know.
