We are a young family that went on our 2nd cruise for some much needed RnR during the school holidays. Initially, we were a little worried about the cruise being a little too Asian themed, having read the reviews here, but we managed to ...
The ship was great and overall had an okay time. Embarkment was smooth and relatively effortless.
The Cafe Promenade was great (the pizza I heard was amazing) for late night snacks.
Our cabin was on the 7th deck - had a balcony. ...
There were 4 of us, myself and my daughter and my friend and her husband. Our ages ranged from 30 to 50. This was my 8th cruise, 5th with RCI and 2nd on Mariner of the Seas. We were there to celebrate my friends 50th birthday and this ...
After reading the reviews, and even though this was cruise #55 for me, I was still a bit nervous as it was my first Asia departure on a non-charter. I was taking a friend for their first cruise, so was hoping for the best. Overall, I was ...
We had priority check-in but was ushered to a busy counter over and over again we ended up standing in the middle of no where for a long time, Food was extremely terrible, fine dining is a joke, served wrong food, mixed up order with ...
The last time I cruised with Legend of the Seas in 2013 was very positive, that we decided to embark on a longer cruise in a balcony cabin for a better experience. The 5N cruise included a half day at Penang, and full days at Langkawi and ...
We took this cruise with our daughter to celebrate her 21st Birthday. We chose this itinerary because she is doing a 6 month UN law internship in Cambodia so we flew to Singapore to meet up with her there . Being a special occasion we ...
The overall quality in RYI for the Asian market is quickly going downhill. Already the quality in this market is significantly lower than other markets served by RYI. Even within this market there is definite degradation from that of 2 ...
We have cruised Asia before and decided to return with a different cruise liner.
Overall the ship lived up to our expectations, we did what we wanted to do, relax, join others when we wanted too, but did things at our pace.
Myself and three friends were reuniting from across the globe, (USA, UK and New Zealand). We had cruised before but none of us have been to Singapore/Malaysia. We all arrived at the very efficient airport in Singapore on time and made our ...
I am left confused as to why so many people left negative reviews on this ship. I am boggled that someone could go on this cruise and find nit picky things to complain about (like your cabin steward not knowing what a blanket was. Do you ...
The was our third trip on the Mariner and we were really looking forward to our trip. The itinerary and shore trips were excellent. It was our first time in the exotic east and we were left in awe by the stunning beauty of the area. As for ...
We choose this cruise first and foremost for the itinerary so it was less of a concern that much of what we enjoyed when we started cruising with RCI 15 years ago was absent.
No greeting with a glass of bubbly on embarkation day. No big ...
Chose rcl on past performance and my birthday treat big mistake
Tired in all aspects and not the cleanest
Verging on the inedable there where 6 of us and at least five of the six meals were sent back every night ...
We chose Royal carribean over star cruise due to its ship being newer with more amenities onboard like ice skating , dreamworks parade , activities for all age groups , royal promenade etc.It was a big family get together for us as we were ...
This is the second time I have been on this ship. This time we did a back to back cruise which was 4 nights (Port Klang, Phuket) then another 3 nights (to Penang). Although we didn't have to change rooms from the first to the second part ...
While we appreciate that this ship is out of Singapore & very much caters to the Asian population there are other nationalities who like to cruise & should be catered for more than this ship did.
The food while mediocre is very ...
I never learn do I?
For my first cruise in July I made the mistake of going on the cruise review and news sites of which this one is a leading light, and reading the reviews of the cruise I was about to take. My concerns after reading ...
The list of everything the ship offers that cannot be found on the Royal Caribbean website
.Casino royale (casino)
.Studio B (ice skating ring)
.The savoy Theatre (theatre)
As occupants of the Royal Suite, I would have expected that we should at least be provided with bottled water and not have to keep collecting it from the bars. This is the most expensive cabin on this ship and I expected better. Was told ...
This is my second time on this ship, and its age is really starting to get to me. Its quite worn down in general, but I still prefer the service on this ship compared to newer ships that has been thrown here to test for deployment in ...
brother-in-law booked for us a stateroom on deck 9. room is cosy and spacious enough for 2 persons. housekeeping is excellent and staff came by to personally introduce himself.
dinning experience was pleasant. we ate at Rhapsody in Blue ...
Day 1 - The ship is clean & pleasant to mingle around. Smooth embarkation & disembarkation procedures.
Cabin - Attentive Stateroom attendant, Angelo D SA. His craft in folding interesting animal characters with the towels was ...
It was school holidays and the Mariner of the seas was full of kids enjoying the school holidays. The kids were very well-behaved and seemed to be enjoying themselves, but as adults, we found that the cruise was centred mainly on kids ...
We were looking for a short cruise with our 9 month old as we were meeting friends in Singapore who were travelling on the cruise we intended to do on the Ovation but unfortunately couldn't as it spent more than 3 days at sea and our ...
