Celebrity relocates Mercury to Vancouver

Date Posted: 19 Sep 2006
Category:
Celebrity Cruises has announced that it is changing the home port for its liner Mercury, with Vancouver, Canada, the new departure point for the ship.

Relocating Mercury to British Colombia will give passengers enjoying Alaskan cruises with Celebrity more time in selected ports and a better arrival time for viewing the incredible Hubbard Glacier, according to the company.

Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan, Alaska ? all ports of call on Celebrity Cruises' seven-night Alaska cruise when Mercury was based in Seattle ? will still be on the itinerary when Mercury begins sailing from Vancouver in 2007.

Ketchikan is perhaps best known for a somewhat unusual claim to fame ? the largest collection of totem poles in the world, collected at the Totem Heritage Centre.

The cruise will also still sail through the India Passage and those lucky enough to be on board will enjoy a number of hours beside the magnificent ice blue Hubbard Glacier.

The year will be an exciting one for Celebrity Cruises, as the company starts sailing to Australia and New Zealand also.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
