My partner and I tried our first RCCL ship a couple of weeks ago. Having only sailed Celebrity ships before, I guess our expectations were unnecessarily high. We understood what we were getting in to with the Chinese cruise and while that ... Read more

Overall this was a very nice cruise. This is not like a standard RCL experience in many ways but we didn't expect that for a sailing from China to Japan. This ship is geared to the Asian marketplace....specifically mainland Chinese ... Read more

Tired and old décor and furnishings. Boring decks with child-like décor. Most of the outside deck areas needed repair and replacement. Deck chairs looked like garage sale items. Most of the services, entertainment and ... Read more

Everywhere food, but nothing to eat. We have sailed with Royal Caribbean for many years and have always taken the philosophy that it is just a ferry we use to get to various ports. In other words, our standards for what the food needs to ... Read more

We had an excellent cruise on Mariner of the Seas. My husband and I have cruised previously with Royal Caribbean, Princess and Carnival, but this was our first cruise with our daughters, aged 3 and 5. We'd waited until they were old enough ... Read more

Embarking on this Ship was easier than I thought. We did wait in line for what seemed forever but overall not bad. The ship was beautiful. Totally engrossed in the wide Street (though I thought there may have been more shops). Our ... Read more

We chose this ship based on itinerary and the fact there was only 1 sea day. Although the ship does show it's age in the cabin furnishings and bath, it was clean and comfortable. The staff was polite throughout the ship. The passenger ... Read more

This is our second time on board Mariner of the Seas and on the same itinerary exactly one year ago. The reason we took the similar cruise was that we were wowed by our previous experience on board the Mariner. However, sad to say, ... Read more

Embarkation at Singapore was very busy as Sapphire Princess was also at the pier however within 30 or so minutes we were on board, being in a suite sped this process up. We have been on Mariner twice before so knew our way around and ... Read more

My wife and I have cruised many time in the Caribbean (Royal Caribbean and Carnival). This was our first cruise in Asia. We love the relaxing atmosphere of a cruise, so we usually don't have ridiculously high expectations. We went with two ... Read more

We were on this ship earlier in the year (last season) and so we knew what to expect; or at least we thought so because with a new cruise director, this one was incredibly different from the last one and not in a good way. After reading ... Read more

Firstly, I didn't want to take this cruise nor this ship as there were a ton of bad reviews on the Mariner. But then a couple of people on Cruise Critic convince me to take the cruise so there you go. Embarkation: The thing about Royal ... Read more

We were a large party who sailed from Venice to Dubai on the Splendour of the Seas, a ship soon to be sold by RCI. I was a bit apprehensive given that the ship was 20 years old (despite a recent re-fit) as my previous experience on ships ... Read more

My wife and I were on Legend in September 2013, shortly after the refit, so we knew more or less what to expect. I reviewed the ship fully then so I'll condense and compare in this one. As we are both still working we are limited as ... Read more

We were very dubious about this ship after reading reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Yes it's a smaller older ship and you could sit picking faults, but overall it was great. Embarkation at Singapore was well organized, ... Read more
