  3. Mariner of the Seas
This was our first cruise experience and we were simply enthralled by what Mariner had to offer us. The ship itself is beautifully renovated and perfect for a short vacay to Bahamas. It had so much to offer that we wished we had an extra day. From embarkation to disembarkation, everything was carried on smoothly. We were also offered cabin at promised time sharp at 1 pm. From the food at the Main Dining to Windjammer every food we ate was delicious. The wait-staff did a wonderful job. The swimming pool area always had a party vibe, and the crew always took great care of each and everybody. Shows were not many, still they were pleasant, if not exceptional. Cocoa Cay was cloudy during our visit, but we still enjoyed a lot. Nassau visit was also a good experience. If you are planning to go on a cruise for the fist time, I think Mariner is the right ship for you, it will set up your expectation about a cruise journey and will encourage you to do more cruising in near future.

Excellent experience

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 2N
Cabin was clean. One minor complain is that we didn't got any towel animals at any point of time in our cabin. May be it slipped from our steward's mind.
