We were really looking forward to this cruise but from day one what a disappointment and poor value for money The food from day one was up impressive lacked flavouring and seasoning focus was on a taste of Asia we wouldn't have minded but the poor quality on two occasions there was hair In the food and in a desert a large ribbon like piece of plastic On 2 sea days they served a BBQ up by the pool cold salads were put out well over an hour Before the hot food was cooked I watched with interest even took a video Of their idea of BBQ as pre cooked sausages and ribs were chucked on to the grill and hardly hit the heat before being shovels into another serving The prices of soft drinks wines and beers were excessive 3 dollars for a can of coke and the cheapest wine over 30 dollars which they then added a service charge to The entertainment what can I say was very poor most night the theatres were empty or Passengers walking out after five minutes The only saving grace to this holiday was the places we visited (my advise though don't book the trips from the boat be brave take a look on trip advisor and seek out private tours much Better value and you get a true picture of places This cruise in my opinion should be sold to the local market Down below is a ratings nil points around

Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review by Amersham

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: October 2015
  • Destination: Asia
We were really looking forward to this cruise but from day one what a disappointment and poor value for money

The food from day one was up impressive lacked flavouring and seasoning focus was on a taste of Asia we wouldn't have minded but the poor quality on two occasions there was hair

In the food and in a desert a large ribbon like piece of plastic

On 2 sea days they served a BBQ up by the pool cold salads were put out well over an hour

Before the hot food was cooked I watched with interest even took a video

Of their idea of BBQ as pre cooked sausages and ribs were chucked on to the grill and hardly hit the heat before being shovels into another serving

The prices of soft drinks wines and beers were excessive 3 dollars for a can of coke and the cheapest wine over 30 dollars which they then added a service charge to

The entertainment what can I say was very poor most night the theatres were empty or

Passengers walking out after five minutes

The only saving grace to this holiday was the places we visited (my advise though don't book the trips from the boat be brave take a look on trip advisor and seek out private tours much

Better value and you get a true picture of places

This cruise in my opinion should be sold to the local market
