Default Mercury recently?

I'm hoping someone out there has been on the Mercury within,say,the last year. We did the Mexican Riviera cruise in 2005 and really liked the ship. We've just booked it for Nov.-the first time in 13 cruises that we're repeating a ship. It is now 12 years old,one of the oldest in the fleet and I'm wondering how it's holding up. There was a refurbish in 2007(?) so that sounds promising Hoping for positive feedback but be honest

We were on the Mercury on the Mexican Riviera in 2006 and then we cruised on her again in august of 2007 to Alaska.
The ship was in better shape in 2007, and we had a wonderfull cruise. I think that Celebrity ships are properly maintained and that you can have a great cruise on a older ship.

Enjoy your cruise.

Hi, there......
I was on the Mercury this last October. I like it so much, I have booked three cruises on her for 2009. I found the ship to be in good shape. I especially found the service excellent...they really go the extra mile. There's a rumor that they may be retiring the Mercury in April, 2010, but Celebrity is not saying. You'll enjoy this ship - after 20+ cruises, the Mercury is one of my favorites. Jini

I do have to say that we have cruised 3 times on the Mercury ant the service was allways excellent. They seem to do everything right.
