GTS Celebrity Infinity is a Millennium Class cruise ship owned and operated by Celebrity Cruises. It was launched in 2001 as Infinity, and renamed Celebrity Infinity in 2007. During the summer cruising season, it cruises Alaska, and during the winter cruising season, South America; including Chile, Argentina, Panama, and Uruguay.
The ship boasts a two-story dining room, called the Trellis Dining Room. It also has a two-story theater called the Celebrity Theater. After being renovated in 2011, the ship has acquired many new features that are on the Solstice class ships, such as Cafe al Bacio or Bistro on Five. Other things added were an updated Oceanview Cafe, new carpets and decoration, as well as a wine restaurant called Cellar Masters. The whole Grand Foyer was redone and the ship was renamed Celebrity Infinity.
Infinity also features a restaurant with original fixtures and china from the legendary ocean liner SS United States, which still holds the transatlantic speed record to this day.
On June 3, 2016, Infinity was docking in Ketchikan, Alaska, and crashed into the dock on the port side, causing a hole in the ship's hull above the water line, and heavily damaging the dock. Winds were gusting to 45 miles per hour from the ship's starboard side at the time of the accident, which accelerated the ship's approach. There were no injuries. In addition to the damage to the ship, the collision caused $2–3 million in damage to the dock.
