Too bad you were not sailing on the Millenium 2 weeks before! I am saling to the Western Carribean. Have you ever been on a Celebrity cruise? Great time and lots of fun but not many singles. I am sure you will have a great time though!
I was on the Celebrity Horizon in NY for my sister's wedding last October, but did not cruised. They served a fabulous reception lunch afterwards and it was fantastic. The food was great and they kept pouring champangne. Then they sailed to Bermuda for their honeymoon and we left the ship before it sailed. I can't wait to sail the Mercury on 3/23. I was only fourteen the last time I went on a cruise. (with my mom & dad). This time I'm sailing by myself hoping to meet lots of people and having a good time. (i'm 34 now!!).
Our cruises are pretty similiar. I will have to let you know how the islands are. I am going to Puerto Rico, Catalina Island, Bahamas and St Thomas. I will be interested on how the Mecury is, I am sure it is a nice ship, I guess it is very similar to the Galaxy.
