Friendly people-very slow service

Sail Date: September 26, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Room Type: Balcony

I have been on 11 cruises and this was the least impressive-see pro's and con's above
seemed like staff was only going through the motions -food adequate-entertainment minimum-not enough staff at any event or lounge

Pros: Port of call-Victoria and the people at my dinner table

Cons: Service at all lounges and bars very slow-not enough bartenders-all food was fair but not what I am used to from a cruise, very little comunication daily throughout the ship

Recommends Celebrity Mercury (RETIRED) 56? No.

Service and Staff
Friendly but not going above and beyond-always looking as if they are short handed except in the buffet areas
not enough options- days were quiet-bingo expensive and unorganized!
Ship Quality
size and cleanliness good
Food and Dining
all food was only warm to taste and dinner selections were very average
buffets had great selections but again only warm to taste
Cabin / Stateroom
room was kept very clean-balcony room-I expected a little larger
Nanaimo, British Columbia
The town is still adapting to cruise ships...not much opened on sunday??
Victoria, British Columbia
great walks..good shopping..good pubs-I will be back to Victoria
