Cruise Ship Review – Review of the Celebrity Mercury

The Celebrity Mercury is one of the older ships in the Celebrity fleet. This line of cruise ships have been admired by experienced and first time cruisers alike. Built in 1997 this is an impressive ship, not just in the amenities that it offers but also in the visual appeal and the classic look.

The rooms have more than adequate space for clothing and other luggage and the service is world-renown. The first thing that you will notice when you enter the ship is the grand foyer on the promenade deck. From there you can make your way up to the entertainment deck, another of the eleven decks on this relatively small ship. If you are into small and intimate settings on your cruise then this one is definitely for you.

For your shipboard entertainment, the Celebrity Mercury features the Celebrity Theater in the front of the ship and the Pavilion Night Club in the rear. The Celebrity Mercury has all the attractions of a large size ship such as a casino, a large shopping terrace, the library and even a Martini Bar. The main dining room is supplemented nicely by the ample lido deck buffet and the additional dining rooms.

As a general rule, you cannot go wrong with Celebrity cruise lines. This is a five-star fleet with a jazzy upscale feel. I personally really like smaller ships. I think that the service is better and the passenger per gross tonnage of the ship is often better than the larger ships.

The Celebrity Mercury has all that and more. A first-class cruise and an outstanding experience overall.
