Marina is a lovely ship.
Destination: Southern Caribbean
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 More 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. Less
Cabin review: A3 Concierge Level
Close to the elevator, but the noise was not a problem until the last night of the cruise. View was terrific from our room as we could see people exit the ship for tours. Entertaining! Room was very comfortable. The lounge down the hall was wonderful, although small. A laundry is down the hall as well with soap provided. Shower was small, but what do you expect on a ship?! Bathtub was fabulous and I loved the bath salts.Read All Concierge Level (A3) Reviews >>
