Celebrity Mercury Captain Drunk

Hmmm… interesting story out of Seattle today. This Seattle Times article reports that the Captain of the Celebrity Cruises ship Mercury was arrested today for being drunk while preparing to take the ship out of Seattle. Evidently, breathalyzer tests registered twice the legal limit.

This is rather interesting since we will be sailing on the Mercury in November on our Mexico cruise and again in June 2007 on our Alasak cruise. I havent seen the Captain’s name released, but I wonder if its the same guy who was at the helm of the Mercury in 2003 when we last sailed her.

No matter, still looking immensely towards both cruises.
