Ship Facts: Marina Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Marina Deck Plans
Marina is a lovely ship.
The Marina ship is quite lovely. In addition to elegant open spaces, the recreational area with golf, croquette, table tennis, etc. is delightful. We had access to the concierge lounge on our deck which made the journey even more comfortable. The complimentary bottled waters, teas and coffees also helped make this trip relaxing because we did not have to show our room key every time we wanted something to drink!

The library is first class with an excellent assortment of good books. Passengers were respectful of each other and seemed to return books on time with staff shelving them quickly.

The specialty restaurants were good, although we were not impressed with the Toscana or Polo Grill. The Main Dining Room is first class, especially the spa menu.

We participated in a cooking class and found it to be good fun. The art classes were fun as well, although one artist did not have a sign up sheet so we were unable to attend one class we wanted to attend.

The casino is tiny with poor odds on the craps table, but the penny slots are excellent and kept us entertained every day.

We felt no need for a suite because the bathroom had a tub and shower. The concierge room size was adequate for our needs, especially since we had access to the lounge. Our stateroom attendants were top notch.

Embarkation was very disorganized, but were were told that was due to an inspection in Miami. Disembarkation was organized... well, as good as can be expected.
