Low quality and upselling
"Spent a week on Mariner. Upselling began the minute I got on with pressure to buy drinks package, tours, internet, cheap clothes and jewellery. The main 'atrium' is a poor excuse for up selling of just about..."Read More

Great time for a first cruise especially - I'm hooked

My sister and I had both never been on a cruise and decided we would try one together since noone else in either of our families want to go. We had a great price and I got some on board credit with my purchase so I was happy. We embarked in about 20 minutes. No issues at all. I was nervous what to expect and other than the fact that the security people from the port were a little rude (think ...

We were a group of couples. The ship is very nice with lots for young people to do. We are experienced cruisers and our favorite is Princess as Royal Caribbean has too many children on board. But let me give you the good and bad, in my opinion. We needed wheelchairs since having recent surgery. The wheelchair service was excellent but be sure to sign up. Don't worry about the time frame as ...

We are Royal Caribbean loyalist but have also sailed on Carnival and Disney ships. Frankly all have their advantages and different price points, but RC seems to bring the best value for the dollar. We sailed on Mariner many years ago and chose her because the short itinerary and stop in the new Coco Cay was appealing to us. Our four night trip overall was very good. Friendly staff and a ship that ...

This was my first time cruising, so had nothing to compare it to, but have since been on the Adventure of the Seas. I booked this reservation through MGM as a comp. I prepaid the gratuities, which I much prefer. Unsure if I have an option to do that, or if it's just added on the bill now. Ship: I thought it was gorgeous, well kept, nothing negative to say. It could have been the timing ...

My mother and I take this cruise every year twice a year. This is our first time being disappointed. Our 5:30 seating turned to MTD when the host grabbed my card out of my hand and used a sharpie to write "MTD" on it (he said I only booked 5 months in advance so we didn't deserve 5:30 dining??). There were lines for everything without any consideration for the elderly. This is the first time ...

This cruise timing worked perfectly with a wedding my family I were attending. My wife and I are frequent Celebrity cruise line cruisers but because of the perfect timimg per above, we decided to take this cruise with our 3 adult children their significant others and my 7 year old granddaughter. I will just list what I consider the pros and cons as a consensus from all of ...

We chose this cruise because we had already sailed carnival a few times , and wanted to try what we heard was a step up. It was terrible! Just trying to get an elevator you could fit in was nearly impossible. We took the stairs 5-6 flights most of the day. Just up and down. The staff was unpleasant for the most part. There was definitely more unhappy irritated staff then there was happy and ...

I recently completed a Mariner of the Seas cruise two weeks ago. This was my second time on Mariner and I loved it just as much as I did the first time. The ship is well maintained. Very clean with lots of up to date amenities and offerings on the ship. While the ship was sailing at Capacity nothing ever felt packed. No issues finding lounge chairs to use on sea day. The food in the main dining ...

Miniature Independence of The Seas - A nice quick cruise

This is a fun, affordable, fast cruise for a long weekend. this ship was a miniature version of the Independence of The Seas. I love the Promenade in this style of ship. The pools were a little less warm that I like. I was pretty clear they weren't heated but it didn't matter too much because there wasn't too much free time. I had "The Key" but would not say it was needed on this sailing at ...

We love cruising and have cruised 4 times in the past 3 years! This was my first time on the Mariner of the seas and I was excited for my small children to experience the Perfect Day at CocoCay. This cruise fell short of my expectations and truly left a lot to be desired. Boarding was easy and painless. It only took about 20 minutes from the parking lot to the ship. For this review, I will begin ...
