Review SummaryWe have sailed twice on Celebrity line and found this the best of the two. This was a short 4 day cruise through the NW coastal area. This trip was on the Mercury, previously we had been on the Century. The Mercury is scheduled to be refurbed in 2009 and boy could it use it. Missing tiles in the pool area, worn and used carpet, tired color scheme all indications of lots of use. Although the ship is tired looking, the service was top notch! Previously on Century, the service was ho hum. This time the line showed us why we came to Celebrity to begin with. The waitstaff remembered what we liked to drink and our particular likes and dislikes. The rrom staff was impeccable and nothing was ever amiss. The posrts of call were Victoria and Nananimo. Vistoria was as she always is, a lovely tourist city with lots of attractions to interest anyone, theaters, museums, shops, food. Nanaimo however, is a very small working town and not quite up to a cruisers interest just yet. Very small, not lots to see or do and stretched out, the old quarter is many many blocks away, pretty far for the older crowd of Celebrity. In the long run, Celebrity is a terrific cruise line and we booked 2 more cruise for next year while on board this trip! We are cruise crazy!
