I don't know that they plan to sell Mercury - I just suspect that they will, along with Galaxy, as the new Solstice ships come on line. They put serious money into Century, so would expect...

Dave,
Correct on both counts.

I wasn't clear in my original post, and yes, they held up all luggage while they X-ray's each piece. I believe the X-ray is pretty much standard procedure, but at...
