Mariner of the Seas Review April 2022
"They added grand Bahamas the day before sailing, so the ship had activities as if it were a sea day, but it was also a port day!We’ve never done only a four day cruise so that was new to us...."Read More

Good Ship. Good Crew.

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Mariner of the Seas

The Beautiful South
6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

My #1 criticism about this ship was the elevators...so really, that's a pretty good thing. That said, I don't recall a ship with consistently longer wait times than this one. I don't know what the reason for this is (programming maybe?), but it was enough that we'd usually end up bailing and take the stairs. Not a huge deal, but it would be if we had strollers/wheelchairs etc. The Windjammer ...

Surprised sisters

I picked this cruise when I found out my 2 sisters were sailing on it . Jeannie has never been on a cruise so I wanted to make this a special time for her . I boarded the ship and waited in the schooner bar . And enjoyed a mock cocktail before going up to the windjammer . I saw my sister sitting at a table she was so shocked to see me . I was so happy to find them both enjoying lunch . We sailed ...

Pleasantly surprised

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Mariner of the Seas

Pheenix99
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

I booked my first cruise with Royal Caribbean as a tribute to a childhood friend (and RCL Employee). I was pleasantly surprised by pretty much everything. My only "complaint" was that the scrambled eggs at the Windjammer were gross, but easily forgiven due to other options. Didn't care for my meal at Jamie's, but that could easily be because truffle based meals just don't jive with my pallet. The ...

An Excellent Ship for a great price

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Mariner of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have been on a total 18 cruises with Disney, NCL, RCL and Holland. This was a four night to Nassau, Perfect Day with two days at sea. We never felt the ship moving, it was smooth sailing all the way. We ate in the main dining each night and the food and service was excellent. You do not need to spend extra money on the specialty dining. We had a balcony room on the 11th deck and slept ...

Great Ship, Food, Not so Much

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Mariner of the Seas

MeloDrew
10+ Cruises • Age 40s

We really enjoyed this ship and the size of it. It was perfect really. We were able to navigate and figure it all out on our 2nd day. This was our 2nd RCI cruise and 15th overall. The staff on Mariner were outstanding and really helpful. Pool bar waiters, bar staff, casino Bar Staff and cabin stewards were amazing as well. MOS was refurbished a few years ago and is in great shape. We saw ...

Equal number cruise days vs port days

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Mariner of the Seas

TACRuisers
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We are Diamond Plus members of RCCL loyalty program and enjoy the perks that go with that. The over crowded lounge was very niely solved with the generous number of drink vouchers provided each day. We hung around the Schooner Bar (our favorite since the demise of the R Bar on this ship) and found staff and selection of drinks great. Why we did not give cruise five stars. Menue selections ...

Not Perfect but an Incredibly Fun Cruise

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Mariner of the Seas

ddenning
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

This was nearly our 20th cruise and definitely one of the most fun cruises. The CD and her activity staff were pretty amazing. They just made the cruise an absolute blast. The definite highlights were Quest and Love and Marriage. And the shows were definitely better than average. The food was hit or miss. Some of it was good and some wasn't very good. The Italian specialty restaurant was ...

My room smelled like urine and the toilets were not working properly for two days

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Mariner of the Seas

Chappy3
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

My room smelled like urine the last three days that we were on board and the toilets would flush only intermittently the last two days. Multiple cabins in the 3000 section of the ship had the same issue. Multiple room attendants stated that it was an ongoing issue. When we boarded the safe in our room was not attached to anything and we were initially told that it was too late to fix/secure the ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

This is my 4th cruise and first one in Mariner of the Seas. I have to say that the experience inside the boat was AMAZING. Their staff was 10 Stars. Everyone was polite, welcoming, and friendly, especially the Server IPutu he was AMAZING, he went ABOVE AND BEYOND with his service. So I recommend asking for him as your server. Food was Amazing, a lot of options for us. My Son is Vegan and ...
