Went on a 3 nights cruise from Singapore to Penang (and back) in late January 2015. Embarkation at Marina Bay Cruise Centre was smooth and quick. In fact, much quicker than the previous cruise I went on. The same efficiency was so for ... Read more

We were a family of 10 cruising together for the second time with RCI. Previous cruise was from Sydney Australia to New Zealand on Voyager of the Seas, so we couldn't help but compare as Mariner and Voyager are of the Voyager class. ... Read more

A 7 day cruise along the West coast of Malaysia and Thailand meant there was a full turnaround of guests embarking in Singapore. The process seemed to be well handled, and smooth, with relatively short queues. Once on board, a buffet ... Read more

Did virtually the same cruise as last year (Jan 2014) What a difference. The ship has now catering for the Chinese audience and it shows. Quality of the shows was very poor, only kept up by the Mariner of the Seas singers and Dancers. For ... Read more

Seeing the dip in positive reviews here, I was initially sceptical of Mariner of The Seas. However, the experience was truly amazing and would definitely sail again with RC and this ship. Embarkation: Stipulated checkin time is after 11am ... Read more

This is our 2nd time to go on a cruise, our 1st time with Royal Caribbean. Compared with that of the Carnival Cruise, Mariner of the Seas was a lot bigger than that of the Carnival Sensation on our first cruise to Bahamas. Accommodation ... Read more

Just disembarked from the cruise - cruise was okay, not as fantastic as I have imagined though. Breakfast at windjammer is horrible - over crowded and food sucks but dinner at main dining is superb - fine dining concept and food is yummy. ... Read more

We are from Australia and cruised many times. We decided we would go on a short cruise as we were travelling in South East Asia. As it was only 5nights a inside cabin would be fine. We had cabin 8669. A long walk from the lift, good ... Read more

Let's start with the embarkation in Shanghai: it took 2 hours and with this I rest my case on this subject. Cabins: average, nothing special. Food: the smell in Windjammer was awful and the food is of poor quality. There is plenty of ... Read more
