Default What's your favorite?

My favorite is the Mercury. Just the right size, a sophisticated decor and all the amenities of the giga-ships. I just adore the magradome pool areas located all the way aft. I could spend the entire cruise there.

I only wish they offered more alternative dining for the evenings.

Also love Mercury Tim, my favorite. Particularly like the area behind the back pool to eat breakfast in the AM.

My favorite is Galaxy for the period rooms such as Rendezvous lounge and funky but sophisticated Savoy Club. Love how the Stratosphere is done, the Grand Foyer, the lido and aft pool area.


Preferences are as follows

1 Galaxy
2 Zenith
3 Horizon
4 Century
5 Mercury

I've only done two cruises (so far). My fav is Galaxy. I absolutely love the Stratosphere Lounge. I think part of the reason this ship is my fav is because it is the first cruise we ever took.......of course we were in awe! Next cruise is Jan. on Millennium and I have extremely high expectations of her! Can't wait!

I love the Mercury also. We cruised on the Mercury three times and the service was allways top-notch.

It's a beautifull ship.

Default favorite Celebrity ship

Mercury is our favorite Celebrity ship and we still prefer her to the newer vessels.
I think they have the best crew of any Celebrity ship and the size of the ship is just right. Not too large.

Another vote for the Mercury! We did the mexican Riviera in 2005 and we're booked for the Caribbean in Nov-with our first balcony! 2000 passengers in just the right size for us-can't imagine tendering 4000 people And the Constellation is a close second.

You will be on one of the best ships afloat.

Wow, this thread is nine years old!!! How did you go back that far & dig it up?? Anyway, nine years ago I would have answered Century. And today, after about 20 cruises, I would have to say...Century!! To me, she is the perfect size, & still has the most beautiful dining room afloat. We just did a TA on her after not sailing her since 1998, & we still love her. To me, Galaxy would be a close 2nd, because she still had the T pool, but sadly she's gone now. While I like Mercury, there's just something missing about her & I don't know what it is.

Having said all that, I kind of like all the Celebrity ships I've sailed on.

We also like the Century very much and it is our second favorite ship in the Celebrity fleet.
We will be doing a fall 2010 TA on the Eclipse next year. We would rather do it on a century class ship but none are doing a fall TA in 2010.

Hopefully, one of these years I'll be able to experience the Mercury or the Century! I've only been on the Infinity and the Millie as of now and I just love the m-class size ships. Very easy to navigate through and I absolutely love the solariums with the thalassotherapy pools! After being on the Mariner of the Seas this past April, which is a beautiful ship, I still prefer the coziness of the m-class ships. Never felt crowded on them and could care less about a rock climbing wall or an ice rink for that matter!
