Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review by Lancethecook: Dreadful service
Overall Member Rating
Having cruised on Mariner of the seas before I know how good it can be but this time it was dreadful.
Almost the entire complement of guests were Chinese , don't misunderstand, I am not in anyway prejudiced but us westerners have been totally forgotten.
There was virtually no waiters around to get you a drink indeed twice at dinner we waited 45 minutes to get a drink.
As you can imagine the casino was absolutely chocca block.
If you dared to leave your seat/machine even for a moment to go to the bar or toilet someone would immediately take your seat , cash out any credits and start playing the machine.
The food was very biased to Asian food which is fine with me but many people missed the more traditional British / American food.
RCI have even removed some bars and turned them into high end jewellery and watch shops , again aimed straight at the Asian market.
I did have a great holiday because I saw Asia for the first time More , and loved it , but it could have been even better if RCI had considered their guests needs a bit more thoroughly .
All in all the food was ok but not great and the service terrible.
