Our Transatlantic cruise on the Mariner in 2012 (Monte Carlo to Rio) was such a great experience that we chose to do it again. This time it was Lisbon to Miami. The Mariner and her staff once again more than measured up to our expectations!
Our pre-cruise hotel was the Corinthia in Lisbon, a very nice hotel. The room was quite spacious and very well maintained during our three night stay. The service by staff was fine at all times. The included breakfast buffet was excellent. We would stay there again for sure if in Lisbon.
Travel from the hotel to the ship was excellent once we got the bus moving. There were some issues getting the luggage from the rooms to the buses, the first bus was about 45 minutes late leaving for the ship. Quite a few of the passengers waiting for transport were more than a little upset. Perhaps all was not done in the most efficient manner but all reached the ship long before our scheduled departure.
Our cabin,( 842, midship)was very nice. There is plenty of space, two people should never feel cramped. The new balcony furniture is fantastic, very comfortable chairs. They are a great improvement since our last cruise on the Mariner in 2012. Our cabin was maintained in excellent fashion by our room stewardess and steward
