We have just returned from a five night cruise on board the Marina of the Seas. We had a state room 9392 Aft of the ship and this provided some really great cruising views. The bed however was very very firm, right for some but these first time cruisers. The room was well maintained by our porter however I would have thought that they would have been a bit more modern for a ship of this age and cost.

We did have the best meals at the restaurants Giovanni's and Chops Grill was 10/10! The best steak for along time. The ship provides great activities and shore excursions if that what your interested in. To get on and off the ship was well organised and very smooth and we had no delays. The my time dining meals dining experience is lovely but the food quite ordinary hence the decision the eat in the paid restaurants for minimal charges.

The shows, activities and entertainment was great, Caroline the bingo caller is a total crack up!

We did 2 shore excursions, one in Kl and the other in Phuket to James Bond island - this was a key highlight and we'll worth it. We are in our 40's and would definitely cruise again and see another part of the world. We stayed at the Regent hotel Singapore for one night prior to cruise and the the Swissotel Singapore for 6 nights post cruise. Swissotel location in Singapore is outstanding for METRO RAIL (MRT) , shopping and general sight seeing.
