Worst cruise ever

Sail Date: September 01, 2006

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

I'm not sure what ship some of the others here were on but it wasn't the Mercury that I was on.
We have been on 12 cruises and this was without a doubt, the dirtiest ship we've ever been on. Trash on the floors, everything dripping with bleach residue, dirty furniture, worn out carpeting.
This is the ship that it turns out has had numerous sailings where people came back sick. The same ship where the captain had been arrested for showing up intoxicated. The same ship that was fined for dumping sewage in the waterways.
We will never cruise on Celebrity again.

Pros: Ease of embarking

Cons: Everything else

Recommends Celebrity Mercury (RETIRED)? No.

Food and Dining
Some food turned out to be pretty good while other dishes were inedible. The service in the dinning room was the worst of 12 cruises. Wait staff never learned our names or that I always wanted coffee after dinner. Other ships had it memorized within the first 2 days.
Cabin / Stateroom
Good storage, kept clean but never saw the room steward.
Service and Staff
Didn't meet any rude staff members but met no one specifically warm and friendly either.
In the nightclub, the DJ cut a song off in the middle and played a different song. "3 TIMES"
Ship Quality
A smaller ship in comparison to most. Chrome and brass not polished, floors dirty, public washrooms always out of paper products.
