We have been on several cruises most of which have been on Disney Cruise lines. This is our first Royal Caribbean cruise and I will list for you the pros and cons. They are in no particular order and some come from parents and some come from comments made by my children. We are a family consisting of mother father and four Boys ages 20 20 16 and 15..

This cruise was 5 days and went to Mexico and Coco Cay. This site won't allow anything else besides what's above. Chose Mariner because my family had been on Independence twice before, and they are similar (sister) ships, so I was told by a Royal Caribbean rep. Boy was that a mistake. We can start with the room mixup. I was under the impression when I called and booked the cruise the balcony ...

This was our first cruise on Royal. We’ve never cruised on RCL before but we got an excellent deal and the timing was right. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and thought it was a good value for what we paid. If you haven’t read my stuff, I like to separate my reviews into ‘the good’ ‘the bad’ and ‘the ugly,’ so here goes: ‘The good’ – The food and main dining service were by far the best part of ...

Birthday and Anniversary Cruise planned for the wife and I. It's been several years since our last cruise. The overall experience really was disappointing even though the food and waiter staff experience was good. Several bad experience which included inconsistency with the organization boarding process. -unclear documentation requirements for Antigen testing documentation and rude ...

I give high score for the cleanliness onboard, food was delicious in the dining room, especially considering it was a 4 night cruise. Wait staff and the rest of the crew were fabulous, my only issue was with the bidding up option. We did bid up from our oceanview balcony for a suite, and the Friday before sailing they "Congratulated us" for winning the bid to a cabin 203 square feet with a smaller ...

We wanted to try a short cruise for our first cruise post covid. The Mariner of the Seas was perfect in every way. I was crying tears of joy boarding this beautiful ship! I have cruised 50+ cruises on the biggest newest ships, but this cruise was so very special because it was so wonderful to be able to cruise again after the pandemic. The crew and staff were welcoming and very eager to serve. The ...

I went to the Bahamas, for a weekend cruise, on Mariner and I just got home on Monday. I can't tell you much about the ship because I only saw my cabin, the "Pub" on the Promenade, the Diamond Lounge and the main dining room (MDR). Seriously, I never went to any of the outside "things to do" on the ship. I can tell you there is a Starbucks on deck 4 and it wasn't covered by my drink package. The ...

We arrived at the Port Canaveral RCCL Cruise Terminal on Friday, October 1 at around 12:30PM to board the Mariner of the Seas For some reason, the terminal has removed any lines/process for Suite guests, which has always been available in the past and appeared easy to accomodate even during COVIT. It took one hour from the time we arrived until we boarded the ship. There was a long queue line ...

My late husband of over 35 years and I had over 30 cruises on RCI. I was longing for a cruise experience but didn’t know if I could survive a 7 night cruise as a solo. I selected Mariner of the Seas 4 night out of Port Canaveral for two reasons; it sailed just over two hours away from my home and it went to Coco Cay! Overall, the experience was a little sad. Protocols prevented opportunities to ...

The employees in the terminal seemed to still be in a learning curve. It went pretty slow so if you have the RCCL app use it. Also highlight the date, your name, type of test and result ("Negative") on your printed test so they can find it quickly. The ship was only 33% full so no waiting for elevators, tables, bar service or lounge chairs. Most elevators were empty and no long wait. The ...
