Can anyone tell me about the Celebrity Mercury? Our family (2, late 50's/4, mid 30's, 7 yr old, 10 yr old and 12 yr old (all boys) is take a "Christimas In June" Alaska inside passage cruise in June of '05. I am a many times cruiser so I know the ropes but I'm concerned about the "sedateness" of this cruise being boring for the boys. What types are activities does the Mercury have for these ages? And are the good ones? Please let me know.
There will be a youth program (it's seasonal) in Alaska for the summer cruises so you school aged children will have some fun things to do. It won't be as active as say a Royal Caribbean cruise, but the kids should have a good time. Alaska itself is such a great, active destination. The two year old can't participate in the youth program but there is private babysitting on Celebrity for an hourly fee.
