Ship Facts: Mariner of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Mariner of the Seas Deck Plans
OK Cruise but not one of our favorite
We had a bad start to our cruise being waiting at airport for shuttle because of a problem at the dock. About 6 people arrived at airport before us but when shuttle arrived we were allowed on 2nd shuttle. Names were taken by how we arrived but no order by how we went on bus. When we got to dock there was the LONGEST LINE I have ever seen! You had to find your way because no one was directing. My husband was on crutches because his ALS affects his balance and his leg strength isn't good. No offer of a wheelchair for the hour we stood outside in line to get in building. Once inside we did get assistance.

No complaints about the ship and we didn't run into constant trying to sell us extras like alot of others talked about, infact we we pretty much not even asked anything.

We had a free spa treatment which was great and the girl told about other services but no hard sell.

Entertainment was ok. We really enjoyed ice show.

As far as food we ate at Johnny Rockets twice and loved both times, great service. MDR dinner we only went 1st and last night. Wish we hadn't gone the last night, felt like we were on trial, every wait staff that came to table asked where we had been eating. We were really uncomfortable.

Food was OK not bad but nothing really great, can't think of anything we ate that stood out. Fountain drinks were really bad though but royal Caribbean did refund me for my fountain pkg.

This was our 2nd Royal Caribbean cruise but I doubt if we will use them again unless we get a really big deal and then I doubt if we would consider.
