Mexican Riveria on a Grand Lady

Sail Date: December 2010
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
This was our first experience with Royal Caribbean and will not be our last. The food, entertainment, staff and the ship itself were exceptional.

Firstly, if anyone could fault the food on offer, then they are hard to please. It was of high quality and standard equivalent to a five star hotel.

The entertainment and activities offer met the needs for all ages in our party and no one was disappointed with anything on offer.

The staff went out of their way to ensure that all your needs were met and that you were not wanting for anything.

The ship was well appointed and provided all the activities and adventure for all ages to enjoy from morning to night.

Anyone who can find fault with anything on offer is only looking for fault. I would recommend cruising with Royal Caribbean, it is unfortunate that the grand lady Mariner of the Seas will not be cruising the same region shortly as she ventures to Europe.

The value offered and the More services provided exceeded all expectations and would happily cruise with Royal Caribbean again. Less

Cabin review: G6202

6202 Ocean view stateroom at front of ship. Plenty of room for as family of 4. Well appointed and set out facilities that meet all your requirements. Great views of the front of the ship and allowed you to watch as each port was visited.

Port and Shore Excursions

CABO SAN LUCAS Did the Rhino 4X4 Safari with Chicas and Berto as our guides. This was booked through RC online. This was an exceptional tour and exposed you to both authentic Mexican food and also the environment of the land. Seeing a 300 year old cactus, eating authentic food and experiencing the culture with truly genuine people made this tour great value for money and totally worthwhile. Both Chicas and Berto were very knowledgeable and only added to this enjoyable tour.


PUERTO VALLARTA Dolphin Discovery Push /Pull /Swim with the Dolphins. If you love dolphins and want an upclose experience with full interaction then this is the experience you want. The value cannot under estimated for this once in a lifetime experience.
