The crew on the ship is not static - I did a transatlantic on the Millie in Oct. 2003, and saw a few of the crew on the Century in Jan. 04. We have cruised on the same Celebrity ship several times and had a little different experience with the crew on each sailing. So if you're asking for the best ship's crew, you also need to include the sailing date.
Crew move from ship to ship. So after their first contract is up they know the Celebrity company ropes - job knowledge.
Service and food are Celebrity strong points.
They look at the reviews of each worker mentioned in the staff.
I never judge the crew level on the ship.
Only how many nice people I run into working on the ship at the time.
I have never found more than two bitter pills for all the Celebrity cruises I have been on.
We be Cruzin... Summitt - from San Juan.
January 2nd - ...... To the South.
Kuki, I can honestly say that my last cruise on the Zenith, the crew was fantastic. Celebrity's ship generally have great service, but this crew is exceptional.

Year after year, cruise after cruise, the staff on Mercury just seem to out do the other Celebrity ships we sail.
I know the staff changes all the time, but crew on Mercury consistantly deliver a great cruise. Some of the other ships are fine but in our opinion the quality of the staff seems to vary more depending on the voyage.
Hands down the Summit. I have sailed on many lines and most of the celebrity ship but the summit was the best. that could have also been in part to us knowing so many crew members and them treating us like royalty. it is funny how they remember some of the customers. went on the ship for christmas and new years and they were fabulous.
