This is a great ship to go cruising on and we have just completed a sector from Singapore to Fremantle. We had a large ocean view stateroom that was spacious and more than we had anticipated. Entertainment was of a very good standard and ... Read more

It was school holidays and the Mariner of the seas was full of kids enjoying the school holidays. The kids were very well-behaved and seemed to be enjoying themselves, but as adults, we found that the cruise was centred mainly on kids ... Read more

This ship is probably the most beautiful ship we've ever sailed on (we've done about 15 cruises)! Of course, being new helps, but it's much more than that. They've really gone out of their way to make it visually appealing, from the ... Read more

I guess the best part was the embarkation and disembarkation process. Other than that nothing much to report about. I will also give credit to my stateroom attendant and the dining room attendant. The shore excursion also was very well ... Read more

I chose this sailing knowing Asia would be different. Royal has gone beyond that and made a ship and experience that is unfriendly to westerners. This cruise took me from platinum to emerald status, and I am disappointed it wasn't too ... Read more

Whilst we enjoyed the cruise - new places - new people and warm (too hot) lol weather, many aspects were disappointing. I would suggest mainly due to bad management. This was our first cruise with RCI and from what non whingers had ... Read more

It is a large ship. The check-in took over an hour & half. Due to the fact we had not been told to bring a copy of our passports. Otherwise ok. The ship itself is quite impressive. Very clean & some great friendly staff. A few ... Read more
