Enjoyable first Asia cruise, and not our last
We chose my time dining and never had more than a 10 minute wait to be seated. The food and service in the main dining room was very good. We did feel though that Celebrity More was slightly better in this area.
One of the surprising things about this cruise was the lack of wines available. I prefer to drink Sauvignon Blanc and they had none available from the day we set sail even though they had several different varieties on the wine list. In fact there was only one Pinot Gris available and the remainder of white wines were Chardonnay. I'm only glad we didn't decide to take a drinks package.
The entertainment we found exceptional. The Dynamic Duo were fantastic and had everyone up dancing
right into the early hours of the morning. The Ice show was awesome and the stage shows were also very good.
As this was a repositioning cruise there were approximately 40% asian passengers. Due to this Royal Caribbean changed the smoking policy and smoking was allowed in the casino!
The Mariner of the sea's is a lovely ship and Royal Caribbean were easy to deal with. We would happily use them again. Less
Cabin review: 9667
We had inside cabin 9667. Although it was small, it was well appointed with plenty of hanging space and drawers. The bathroom was a bit dated but was clean and the shower worked well. The stateroom was very quiet and dark. The bed was very comfortable, we had some of the best sleep in this stateroom.
