Cruise to Victoria

Sail Date: September 22, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Ship was comfortable with fairly good entertainment, nothing exotic, but nice to watch. The restaurants for the formal dinner were nice and plenty of snack areas for great pastry and drinks.

Pros: Staff was great, food was wonderfully prepared

Cons: Types of food weren't near as elegant as past cruises. Simple and basic

Recommends Celebrity Mercury (RETIRED) 56? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was nice and clean.
Food and Dining
Foods were pretty basic. No steaks or lobsters, but things like turkey, small portions of beef and pork, some fish and braised lamb
Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms were adequate, but the shower water temps varied from cold to hot every 8 seconds. Be prepared to boogie about the shower stall.
My wife really enjoyed the Spa for massage, facial. The shows were fine, but no name entertainment but full regardless. Had a good comedy show as well
Service and Staff
Great people and service, and in most cases, pretty entertaining
Victoria, British Columbia
Butterfly gardens and Butchart Gardens were spectacular, even in the rain!
Don't Miss: Have high tea at the Empress Hotel, a little pricey, but once in a lifetime experience, and I don't even like tea
Nanaimo, British Columbia
Never heard of that city before, but we did our own tour. Nice town with friendly people and the best halibut and chips in the world at the wharf.
Don't Miss: See the church. Organ player is almost hidden in his white robe with jeans and tennis shoes
