Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review by Patthecruiser
- Sail Date: November 2012
- Destination: Transatlantic
- Cabin Type: Grand Suite
We sailed for 16 days and had nothing but outstanding positive experience from the staff. Of all the cruises, I have never seen a Captain so engaging and social walking around the ship morning, noon and night talking with all the guests. The entertainment was some of the best I have ever seen. I expected to have to endure the Royal Caribbean dancers for 16 nights and this was not the case. They flew in all types of acts that were top Las Vegas quality, some getting standing ovations.
We had the Grand Suite which was a first for us and I don't know how I will ever go back to a regular room. More space than we could use, dual sinks and overall just beautiful.
The service was just outstanding and as a Diamond member the 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm free cocktails are also a great plus. The itinerary was fantastic as we stopped in some very out of the way ports that you normally would not visit.
In closing, I still highly recommend RCCL but they do need to pay a little more attention to the evening dining experience.

Scuba DivingThe vendor the ship used was very poor. The dive master could have cared less about the group and did not have safety in mind at all. They could have cared less also if they go us back to the ship on time (ropes were pulled from the dock) and we were the last ones to get on the boat.View All 30 Scuba Diving Reviews
