Celebrity Cruises Welcomes New Infinity

Monday, April 30, 2001
Celebrity Cruises' new Infinity, the newest addition to the cruise line's fleet, today sails into San Diego, prior to tomorrow's call on Los Angeles, where the 1,950-guest Infinity will hold formal inaugural ceremonies.

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 was present in the first-class dining room onboard the glamorous R.M.S. Olympic.

Celebrity's Infinity embarked on its maiden voyage, a 14-night trans-canal cruise departing Fort Lauderdale on March 3, concluding in San Diego, California. The ship then sailed Celebrity Cruises' first season in Hawaii, with a series of 10- and 11-night voyages to and from Honolulu and Ensenada.
