  3. Mariner of the Seas
Chose this cruise for the ports and weather. The ship and facilities were disappointing. Lack of stock in shops. Entertainment when at dinner and over by 10pm. Geared to asian clientele. Food only average. Mashed potato with everything not fine dining. Dirty areas round pool and in theatre. Ship tired and going for refurb. Overpriced tours. Insect bites. We paid a lot and not value for money. Have written to rci. Travelled a lot with them and standards have slipped. Food in dining room poor. Dining service poor and slow. Windjammer food better with good choices but no fresh crepes. Windjammer rammed at peak times struggled to get a seat and ship not full. Karaoke mostly asian songs and on when at dinner. Diamond loungr rammed due to number of frequent cruisers. Some staff were miserable. Think some of them were being laid off due to refurb. Nice nail paint in spa.

Disappointing
