We wanted to try a short cruise for our first cruise post covid. The Mariner of the Seas was perfect in every way. I was crying tears of joy boarding this beautiful ship! I have cruised 50+ cruises on the biggest newest ships, but this cruise was so very special because it was so wonderful to be able to cruise again after the pandemic. The crew and staff were welcoming and very eager to serve. The ship was only about 30% full. The dining was excellent. We loved loved loved the entertainment on the ship. The ice show was so good we went to every showing. The talent and costumes were amazing. We loved the music and choreography. The main theater shows were excellent. The activities have been upgraded to include Virtual bungee jumping, ropes course, Flow rider wave machine and dueling water slides! I highly recommend The Mariner of the Seas.
