I am on the Celebrity, Mercury and just got my cabin assignment. Penthouse deck, cabin 1158. I am way at the back of the ship [literally] looking at where we have been... this is a 1st time cruise and I am not sure if this is what I want. Has anyone seen or been in one of these cabins ?? Please HELP... should I pay more to get another cabin on the side of the ship.
Personally I find sitting at the stern of the ship and watching the blue water churned up by the propellers to be very relaxing. There are no bad cabins on Mercury. In my opinion
(and it is shared by very many people) Mercury is the best cruise ship afloat.
i also like aft cabins. I haven't been on your particular ship, but have heard wonderful things about it. The only slight drawback is that you might have to walk just a bit further to get to the stairs or elevators, but that's really not an issue,imho.
