I did not know what to expect of a trans Atlantic crossing with a number of sea days. There was nothing to worry about. I had a blast. Then there were all the freinds I made with Cruise Critic.
I have noticed Royal Carribean has cut back on a few items and is now charging for some things that were free like sodas but in this day and age they probably need to do that to continue providing cruises that we enjoy.
The rooms on Mariner of the Seas were the quietest I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The sizes and service was what I have grown accustomed to but I never once heard my neighbors.
Room 9283. It was a delight. I never heard hall noises or next door cabin occupants. I slept like a baby. The room was small as I expected. Don't drop your soap in the shower it is not easy to get back but again as expected.
This room also had no loud venues like the theater near it, over it or under it. If on this ship again I will look for this room.
