Cruising after the hurricane!

Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review by gjginparadise

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View

We were so anxious to sail on this refurbished ship since we had sailed on her before many times & loved her

Sadly we were the first sailing on her after the hurricane Dorian. But on the brighter side we experienced her delivering food & supplies to the Bahamas. It was a great experience to even bring some refugees from Freeport to Nassau.

The food on this ship was average & plentiful. No reason to go hungry

Luckily Nassau was not too affected by the hurricane.

However, we were looking forward to Coco Cay since we also have this ship booked for a Christmas Cruise where we are taking our whole family of 14 with 6 cabins booked. Coco Cay in our opinion was not ready for visitors. The island smelled like sewage & the ocean was disgusting. After about an hour we returned to the ship as I felt sick. We just could not eat there.

Our outside window cabin was very nice & our attendant was average

Our dinner server was fabulous & kept us entertained.

We were disappointed in the quality of the coffee in the coffee shop on deck 5. We remembered it for having excellent coffee. I guess they wanted you to use Starbucks

Embarking & Disembarking went great & smooth.

All told it was a relaxing getaway but nothing above average.
