Ship Facts: Mariner of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Mariner of the Seas Deck Plans
My husband and I travelled from Australia to board Mariner of the Seas in Los Angeles for a 7 night cruise to the Mexican Riviera. It was a long way to travel but we weren't disappointed with this beautiful ship and the friendly people we met. After 9 cruises in other destinations, we enjoyed visiting a different region of the world.

Our cabin was spotless and our cabin steward kept it that way for the time we were on board. We chose "My Time" dining, which was good because we got to meet other passengers. We were travelling with friends and the four of us always had our meals together. The second last night, we dined in Grilles, which was a treat for us all. Overall the meals were good but our waiters got our entrees wrong a couple of times - maybe it was our Aussie accent. Activities on board were good but we tended to just wander along the Promenade deck looking at the shops or having a coffee. Ellington's bar on Deck 14 has a great wrap-around view and we would go there in the afternoons for a cocktail before dinner. The entertainment was good and the highlight for us was the Ice Show, which was fantastic. It was a real novelty for us because we don't have much ice-skating in Australia.

The ports we visited were very interesting. The weather was perfect and that made it all the more enjoyable. We went on a tour in each port and learnt a lot about the Mexican culture. We thoroughly recommend Mariner of the Seas and we encourage other Aussies to come and discover this beautiful region of the world.
