1.0 out of 5
Sail Date: March 01, 2007
Ship: Celebrity Mercury
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
We were on the Mercury for 14 days in a suite with concierge service. We were totally disappointed with the accomodations. Our suite was old, worn and dirty. The food was mediocre at best. There were people everywhere and lines for everything. Everything was disorganized. We will never, ever travel on Celebrity again. I wrote a long letter three weeks ago and included pictures of the chairs with holes in our cabin, the black mold in the shower and rust and dirt on the verandah. No response.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
There was a breakout of norovirus. Every surface of the ship was cleaned every half hour with bleach. All of the doors, windows, mirrors, pictures, railings were clouded with bleach. It smelled and looked awful.
