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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

I guess the best part was the embarkation and disembarkation process. Other than that nothing much to report about. I will also give credit to my stateroom attendant and the dining room attendant. The shore excursion also was very well ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of its itinerary as we had never been to asia. Embarkation in Shanghai was very slow at least 2 and a half hours once on the ship all seemed great. First night in main restaurant was shockingly slow took an ... Read more

We were travelling through China and thought it would be interesting to travel home via a blue ocean cruise so we picked the 10 night Shanghai to Singapore cruise with Royal Carribean. We'd cruised before but not on such a large ship with ... Read more

Tired and old décor and furnishings. Boring decks with child-like décor. Most of the outside deck areas needed repair and replacement. Deck chairs looked like garage sale items. Most of the services, entertainment and ... Read more

Everywhere food, but nothing to eat. We have sailed with Royal Caribbean for many years and have always taken the philosophy that it is just a ferry we use to get to various ports. In other words, our standards for what the food needs to ... Read more
