  3. Mariner of the Seas
We went to celebrate my daughter's graduation from college., we were very disappointed with Royal Caribbean we probably will not sail again, we were promised an upgrade that never happened, stuck in a little tiny room, a late meal time that we didn't choose, entertainment was non-existen, the Promenade deck was like a flea market with Carnival barkers, everything seem to have an extra charge to it, our cabin Stewart Harold was fantastic and Johnny on the spot with everything we needed, but the rest of the staff acted like we were an intrusion, Coco Cay was a complete disappointment make sure you bring your wallet if you want to do anything other than sit in the sand, the drinks were way over priced, and the staff was rude, the food on board was mediocre and that's being kind however our wait staff was great,this was our first and last time sailing with Royal Caribbean we Cruise quite a bit then I suggest you spend your money elsewhere.

Not a good cruise

Very tight, was promised an upgrade that never happened, hallway was way too narrow, and was way too far from nearest exit , better have your hiking shoes ready.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Balmoral Island & Sting Ray Experience
    Easy to sum up, like factory work: sit here , hold Sting-Ray here and here smile, (click) NEXT! , if you want a fantastic experience with stingrays go to Grand Cayman on a Carnival ship it was out of this world
