A delightful experience!

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

It was a comfortable sail, clean, excellent service in cleaning and serving is great. Love the friendliness of staff and quick to help. Room service and cabin service is very nice. The ship is wonderful and comfortable and pleasant in all areas in different levels. It was well laid out in room plans and guest service areas. I would recommend again to others.

Pros: Service, friendliness to children, courteous, quick service

Cons: a little bit of rough waters on 'at sea' day cruising up on 2nd day

Recommends Celebrity Mercury (RETIRED)? Yes!

Children's Programs
We didn't utilize this too much but, we did visit the fun factory during the rockiest time of sailing at sea on 2nd day so, we had to depart from the room after a short visit.
Ship Quality
Adequate size without too much customers, layout is well thought out, clean in public areas, interior decor is well done, great cleaning service to keep ship in neat clean and tidy condition throughout the ship. Easy access to all areas and rooms.
Service and Staff
Definitely added the extra touch to enjoyable cruising was the extra friendly, courteous and helpful staff.
Food and Dining
Great food and availability of food at all times so, wonderful overall. Liked the variety offered and dining times made available. Ambience is warm and comfortable. Quality of food is very good most times, sometimes a bit too salty in gravies and sauces and few dishes.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom seemed a bit smaller than shown in pictures on website but, manageable and comfortable enough. Amenities sufficient, cleaning services in staterooms are wonderful and appreciated. Location is great too as we were on penthouse deck concierge class with balcony. Great choice we made to enjoy the cruise even more.
Entertainment
Manageable and good variety of options and instructions were clear.
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
Stroll along the boardwalk to restaurant area by zip line to see whale sighting is very likely. The port shops were a must do in picking up great souvenirs and best priced compared to other ports.
Don't Miss: boardwalk along shore
Ketchikan, Alaska
discovery centre if kids are present is great way to educate oneself on landscape, history, animal and mammal culture in AK. I was finished seeing all the jewellry and gift shops in juneau and icy strait point so, by this 3rd stop I was not too interested in these shops which were all over town.
Don't Miss: discovery centre
Juneau, Alaska
jewellry shops and large souvenir gift shop is must do and strolling through the town is very enjoyable.
Don't Miss: the whole town
