Read more stories on this subject in our Celebrity Mercury topic page.The ship made national news when hundreds of passengers fell ill on on three consecutive voyages out of Charleston. The stigma attached to the Mercury was too much to handle for both passengers and Celebrity Cruise Line, so the the cruise line is shipping her off to Germany and renaming her.

The Mercury will be renamed Mein Schiff 2, which translates to "My Ship 2."
