Default propulsion problems on Infinity

It has been brought to my attention through another thread that Infinity is known for propulsion problems and many cruises are canceled because of this.

Has anyone else had this happen to them? What does Celebrity do if they cancel your cruise?

We are booked on Infinity in July 06 and this will be the highlight of our year, provided she actually sails... I'm a little leary now. Should I book on another line? This is really the intinerary we were looking for...

The four ships in this class have been plagued by problems with bearings in the pods (propulsion system). Each has had to cancel about one cruise per year to make the required repairs. If Infinity is dry docked in the spring, I'm sure she will sail in tip top shape for your July cruise and the problem will not exist.
When cruises have been cancelled full refunds are given and discounts on future cruises as well.We lost 3 days of a 14 day cruise on Summit last year and got onboard credit and 25% off the current (or a future) cruise.
Keep your booking, you will not have any problem and will enjoy this beautiful ship.

Thanks for the information...I for one feel better! IF something does happen to the Infinity on our Alaskan cruise, at least we know Celebrity will try to make it right.

(Never really doubted it...but it's nice to know others have had positive experiences in this regard)
