I am an avid cruiser and each cruise I go on I purchase a model of the ship as a souvenir. I have a display case for all of my ships and this is one of my most prized collections. However, about a year ago when I sailed on the Mercury the gift shop was sold out of the ship models. For almost a year now I have tried every outlet available to purchase one (Celebrity help lines, the Celebrity website, travel agents, etc.) but am told that they can't sell me a model unless I am actually on the ship due to taxes.
Is anyone planning a cruise on the Mercury that would be willing to purchase a model for me? I will pay you for the cost of the model as well as for the shipping costs to send it to me (I live in Seattle). I would be extremely grateful and will even send you a gift card to Starbucks as a thank you!
Please contact me if you are able to help.
