Every cruise line has had an outbreak at one time or another. What happened five years ago has no effect on the recent out break on the Mercury. It should also be reiterated, that these outbreaks often aren't even the fault of cleanliness of a ship. They are often brought on a ship from other contacts. I have been cruising Celebrity since 2001 and have always found their ships clean, and service friendly and attentive. I sailed on the Century in August 2006, and also May 2005 before the 55 million refurbishment, and even then didn't find the ship in disrepair. Can a ship and crew have an off week, of course they can. Obviously, Celebrity is doing something right or they wouldn't continue to receive prestigious awards.
