Mercury Cruise Review
Our room had a veranda; it was clean and roomy enough for all luggage. The gym was less desirable, very small – located at the bow and this emphases the motion of the boat. The food in the formal dining hall was adequate – a bit on the bland side. There was a bad stench (musty smell) on the lower dining level. Our waiter complained they were only paid by tips they received. The main café for lunch & breakfast was cafeteria style/institutional food – it was crowded – it was hard to find tables that were clean let alone the floors were filthy.
The theatre had a good layout but the seats could use a
good vacuuming. The nature shows were informative and well done. All the bars on
the ships allowed smoking on the starboard side; the smoke still filtered to the
non smoking portside. We chose to carry off our own luggage with the early
disembark request; it was fast and smooth.
