  3. Mariner of the Seas

EmBarkation. It took 3 hrs the staff looked lost. you lined up to get passport copied then lined up to get you boarding pass and lined again to get photo then once more to board.Once on board staff had trouble helping find rooms maybe new staff ?

Mariners of seas. ship seemed old was informed only 10 years old . hard to believe. room seemed out dated dark and lots of noise comIng from behind The walls .ship fixtures and equipment looked old .some work was being done so was noisy and messy.a/c seemed to have a mind of it's own too hot then too cold .Most of the staff were good just the excursion staff were bad they had very little info on the ports.the bar staff at ellingtons we great .

Food was ok but was the same all the time windjammers was a nightmare to find seat. Main dining room was ok waiter was very good food ok .I think drink prices too high. Even had to pay for bottled water .hotels normally give for free .

Entertainment. Was ok the first time you seen it but it did not change same shows every day.new shows and movies would have been nice.

Excursions. This was the biggest disappointment we were to stop at ho chi Ming only to find out we were 3 hours out with no transfers .only paid tours . All ports were like this .excursion staff were very bad they had little info on the ports seemed only interested in selling tours .there Was many complaints but all fell on deaf ears .

Felt ripped off
