Based on the title, you can see that we were on a Symphony of the Seas cruise which probably spoiled us a bit. The Mariner of the Seas was an ok boat but I wonder if they had at the "B" staff on this one vs the "A" staff on the Symphony boat. Not to say all the staff was bad - some were friendly but some just did not want to be there. We had suites on both boats but the suite perks are vastly different including the suite lounge and dining options. Surprisingly even though we had a suite - we got stuck with another family for dining at a table with an unfavorable location. Also - no free wifi on Mariner of the Seas. Other than a nicer room - I would not spend the extra money for suite perks. While the room was spacious - we had broken furniture and plumbing. The kids clubs on Mariner was lacking and big step down compared to Symphony and and Disney cruise line. The Sky Pad was not working and the pool area is tiny. The waterpark at CocoCay is not operational so be forewarned. Hit or miss on food. Surprisingly - the food at Windjammer was better than Chops or the Main Dining Hall - go figure. Service at the sports bar was terrible but everywhere else was good. Spend the extra money and hop on Symphony of the Seas - you will not be sorry. Read Less

We travelled as a family of 3 - Mom, Dad and our 7yr old daughter. We chose Mariner as the itinerary worked for us and we’ve cruised Royal previously. We were also looking forward to the newer amenities offered since the ship’s recent revamp. Embarkation: Dead easy. We booked a Jr Suite so we were swept up to the Suite lounge once we arrived at around 1:30pm. Once our docs were checked we were onboard in less than 15 minutes. Fantastic. Cabin: Our 10th floor Jr suite - Rm 1694 - was at the very back of the ship (stern for ship folks..) with an awesome view from our balcony. This was our third time in a Jr suite but our first rear balcony and we loved it! As others have described, the room was very spacious; certainly spacious enough for the 3 of us. The pull out sofa which was made up nightly was perfect for our daughter but I imagine it would not work for a child over 10, maybe 12 years old. The bathtub was great and necessary for our daughter who still likes to take baths. It was also good for our showers. The balcony was huge... a respite from the busyness of the ship. My favorite place. Dining: We ate at Windjammer buffet, the main dining room (5th floor), Chops Grille and the Promenade. Windjammer was fine. Lots of variety and we were only challenged with finding seats on the 3rd morning. Otherwise the buffet seating was more than adequate. The food was decent enough - not great, not bad. We enjoyed it. We only ate dinner in the MDR once and it was just okay. The service was excellent but the food was average. My husband liked his steak but my short rib wasn’t very good. My daughter isn't a foodie so no real opinion from her. Read Less

I wanted something short but not too short since this was our first cruise with my 10 & 12 yr old kids. 4 nights and 5 days cruise was great! Stayed at Holiday Inn night before embarkation. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Uber over to the port and it was easy. Embarkation: I set for 11:30 am check-in. We were there around 11 and on the ship by 11:30 am. I did online check in before I arrived and made embarkation very quick. Hardly any wait. Deluxe drink package (including alcohols): online purchase offers a few different deals from time to time. I got mine about two weeks before embarkation and got 20% off each person. I think one of the reviews mentioned to buy it before getting on the ship but not really. I think they were offering 30% off on the ship. Deluxe drink package is perfect for someone who drinks. Also, includes bottled water and pops. By the way, no IPA beer. LIttle bumped! You can get your drink as soon as you get on the boat. Just show your printed seasail pass until you get your seapass at 1 pm. Nassau: We didn't do any excursion. Hung out at the ship most of the time and went out for a short time to hang out in the city for a bit. Not a lot of people on the ship so it was nice. Grabbed our lunch and sat by the pool table. Coco Cay: Ship docks. I did not know that. Perfect Day at Coco Cay was not open but still a lot to do. My drinks were included since I had the deluxe drink package. We did snorkeling. You pick up your gear and just jump in the water whenever. You can get in the water as many time as you would like. Buffet lunch was served and pretty good for what it was. Entertainments, activities, and service: Service was awesome. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Entertainments were just OK. Activities were nice. Plenty to do but sky pad was close the whole time. Disembarkation: We carried our own bag. We did not want to get stuck in the crowd and wait to get out so we decided to grab a quick breakfast from the promenade cafe and went. It was around 7:30 am. Disembarkation was quick too. I think we could have taken our time a bit. Got the Uber and waited for about 15 minutes and we were on our way to the airport. By the way, if you go end of the terminal there is an area where you get picked up by Uber or Lyft. Cabin: We had inside stateroom. It was small but we were barely in there. Kids slept on the bunk bed and they loved it! A few notes: I saw one of the reviews mentioning to bring outlet since there are not too many. True. But don't. They don't let you use them. You can just ask your room attendance for one. Read Less
