Celebrity Infinity

Sleek and sophisticated, with a secret garden

Celebrity Cruises' Infinity joined the premium cruise line's award-winning fleet when she sailed into San Diego in April, 2001, prior to descending on Los Angeles for formal inaugural ceremonies.

Celebrity Cruises president Rick Sasso said at that time: “Infinity continues Celebrity Cruises’ tradition of presenting sleek, sophisticated ships that provide our guests with extraordinary cruise vacation experiences. Like her sister ship, Millennium, which launched last year, Infinity presents a variety of new and distinctive features.”

Among the compelling elements of the ship was the industry’s first full conservatory at sea, created by prominent Paris-based floral designer Emilio Robba who said: “The Infinity Conservatory is a secret garden of the seas. It was designed to emphasize Infinity’s magnificent surroundings and to present nature in a harmonious blend of sea and sky.”

Another hallmark was an exclusive, historic maritime treasure. Accenting the interior of the ship’s SS United States specialty restaurant are actual glass panels from the SS United States cruise ship, which launched in 1952 and gained fame for clocking the fastest transatlantic crossing from New York.

The SS United States restaurant is Celebrity’s second specialty restaurant to recapture the atmosphere of its namesake. Celebrity’s Millennium, the first in Celebrity’s Millennium-class fleet, features The Olympic restaurant, the design of which stemmed from a rare collection of wood paneling that once graced the first-class dining room onboard the glamorous RMS. Olympic.

Said Sasso: “Infinity’s SS United States restaurant presents another enticing alternative dining environment for guests seeking a casually elegant dining venue. Under the direction of world-renowned Master Chef Michel Roux, the SS United States restaurant reinforces the benchmark we set with Millennium, in offering the only tableside cooking, carving and flambe at sea, and a dine-in wine cellar featuring more than 175 labels from around the world.”

Maintaining Celebrity Cruises’ trend-setting tradition, Infinity offers a number of new features and amenities, in addition to the Conservatory and the SS United States Restaurant:
