Once again, I will make this review short. Simply put this was an awesome cruise and a very nice ship, great food, and the staff were very friendly and great at remembering your name. I went with my Mother, Brother and his Wife and another friend and his Wife. We all enjoyed it very much. There are the usual grumpy few staff members that you encounter on every cruise same as ...

First Time Cruiser

This is our first Royal Caribbean cruise and, for many first-timers aboard the Mariner of the Seas, probably our last one. I have never been on cruise where at times it was great and at times it was terrible. Embarkation was horrid unless you were Diamond Plus. To get a perspective, there was a turnover of crew of about 20% at Los Angeles which I believe is an abnormally high number which do ...

My husband & I were passengers on Mariner from LA around Cape Horn to Santos, Brazil. RCI has changed drastically since we sailed a few years ago. They have cost cutting in place - no hair conditioner or lotion - no shower cap on the first leg. These items did show up on the second leg. The food was below par - beef too tough to chew - fish either over or under cooked. Very difficult to get any ...

On 1/16/11 my husband and I boarded the Royal Caribbean ship named the Mariner of the seas for a 17 day tour from Los Angeles to Chile, First I would like to say we scheduled all our plans through Royal Caribbean including flights to make certain all our arrangements would be proper. We arrived at the airport on time and were told our flights were rescheduled just a short time sooner which ...

We have sailed several times with RCL and are currently Platinum level members. Our most recent 30 day sailing aboard Mariner of the Seas from Los Angeles to Sao Paulo Brazil left us wondering what happened to RCL's high level commitment to quality of service and overall client experience. The ship itself is beautiful and well appointed. The Royal Promenade is awesome and how often do you have a ...

It is so sad to have to express myself sooo badly about this last two cruises on the Mariner. We enthusiastically plan our cruises a year prior of sailing date. Our first disappointment: the prices drop by $300.00 pp on the first leg, RC does not adjust the prices anymore if it is paid in full, not even the OBC like they used to. On the second leg it drop $200.00pp, that would have been a total ...

Left PHL on USAir at 6:55 AM the day before the cruise just beating out an expected snowfall predicted to leave about 1-2." Plane had to be deiced first which was a unique experience for me. Great flight to Phoenix and after only about a 55 minute wait, flew on to LAX. My daughter and granddaughter flew a later United Flight and had to sit on the tarmac for two hours because the snow was falling ...

South America on Mariner of the Seas, 2011 This cruise was booked a year in advance and it seemed to take a long time for this day to arrive. We had an uneventful flight from Vancouver to Los Angeles. When we arrived at LAX our shuttle left before all the seats were full so it was not a long wait and we had a pleasant trip to the port. EMBARKATION The lines for check in were ...

This is our 30th cruise and the 3rd on the Navigator. Too bad this is the last month it will be sailing out of Los Angeles, or the West Coast for that matter. RCCL is pulling all of it's ships out of the West Coast at least until 2013 because that's as far out as their brochures go. From L.A. it's going to Brazil for a month and then to Europe and then on to Houston, TX where it will be based. ...
