I had sailed on RCL 2 previous times and had been very pleased with my experience. However, this cruise was not to be a repeat of the previous ones. I have not sailed from Galveston before so I can't say that my embarkation experience was unusual but definitely unlike previous ones. We stood in the sun for about 40 minutes before we were able to get into the building and then about another 1.5 ...

We booked a cruise package for this trip - our first time to do this. This included flights, transfers, hotel and the 15 night cruise. It was excellent value for money. The flight was from London Heathrow and took over 10 hours. The hotel, being in the airport, was most welcome.The embarkation went smoothly after a delayed departure from the Marriott at George Bush Airport. The ship was undergoing ...

Booked in to a Best Western in Galveston and did not get a wink of sleep because of the room next door. This was my first time to have an interior room but ended up loving it. Very quiet and dark, which I like for sleeping, but the only draw back is waking up and wondering is it am or pm. I loved the days at sea. All the people on board were around my age. Unfortunately I ate most of my meals ...

GREAT SPRING CROSSING ON THE MARINER OF THE SEAS

We enjoyed this cruise from the first day to the last. I have to differ with the post that said the cruise director, Steve Davis was disinterested. While we were cruising we both commented that we had never seen such an involved hard working CD and activities staff. Possibly others are not comparing this cruise to other transatlantic sailings. I think there was some decent entertainment. I ...

NOT UP TO RCCL STANDARDS

We've been on many RCCL cruises and have always had a great time. This cruise was not up to RCCL standards. The ship, cabin, and cabin steward were great. The problem came with the entertaiment, cruise director and staff, and last but certainly not least, the food. Let me say, the Ice Show was EXCELLENT. The absolute highlight of all the entertainment We always look forward to the nightly ...

Not first time cruisers, but this was our first transatlantic crossing. We were not sure what to expect. We had read so many reviews and scoured the internet for information. Here's the BIG PICTURE summary: Fantastic cruise that was not boring or too long by any stretch of the imagination. Mariner of the Seas was a great ship with fantastic service. We don't think we could ever take a cruise ...

We originally planned on going to Rome for a week but soon realized it was cheaper to take this cruise back to the states than fly back! 16 nights for $509 pp. This was an unbelievable bargain. Especially starting in Rome and going to Corsica, Mallorca, Cartegena, Spain, two different stops in the Canary Islands and Nassau before disembarking in Galeveston. We spent 6 nights pre cruise based ...

Air Travel and Embarkation We used RCL Choice Air. The airline (U.S. Airways) was fine, getting us to Rome an hour ahead of schedule. Our luggage arrived as scheduled. RCL personnel were at the airport to meet us. We left our bags with them, and were taken to the ship by bus by way of a three-hour tour of Rome. For some this might have been a fun sightseeing tour. Since we have been to Rome, ...

Terrific Transatlantic

This was our first Transatlantic cruising with 3,500 very experience, world class travelers. A good number, perhaps a majority, were from Texas and most were active, mature cruisers. This sailing attracts very few children and we only saw perhaps a dozen. We had booked this cruise 16 months before sailing and because the itinerary was so good, the prices kept going up and up. The roll call ...

As a very seasoned cruiser, I know what to expect and typically am not disappointed. I have been on many RCCL cruises and have loved them all, and this one was no exception. The staff was perfect, ship beautiful and maintained in great shape, however, the food in the dining room at dinner was somewhat below satisfactory. I had read reviews prior to going on the ship of people complaining about the ...
