This was our very first cruise for my wife and I. No special occasion, we just decided since we live in Florida, we might as well try a cruise. I bought our tickets through an agency my work uses and that was seamless. We picked a balcony cabin on the 7th deck, 7658, thinking that level will be quiet and conveniently located. My wife can’t walk long distances, so she used a transport ...

I mainly chose this cruise for the convenient 2-night itinerary to Coco Cay for my daughter and I. A few of the highlights and tips: Service: everyone was friendly and helpful. I didn’t get a sense they were understaffed, which I know has been a complaint for many lines. Food: Jamie’s Italian was excellent. The buffet was decent for buffet food. They kept the stations filled even with the ...

Mariner of the Seas is a lovely ship. It was very clean and altho it could use some TLC in some areas there wasn't any one thing that was "horrible". The crew was great! There is a lot to do on the ship, the dining venues are plentiful. Aruba- Took the free trolley to downtown. It is a nice ride to the downtown shopping area. Watch the time because the trolley stops running around 4p or so ...

We chose this cruise for its length and itinerary. It was my 3rd time on the Mariner OS. This cruise was definitely the best of 4 since the restart. The ship was fully staffed and near capacity. The MoS is a great size, easy to navigate and is comfortable. The casino is a little small but always active, particularly in the evenings. Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire were all first time stops for us ...

I cruised royal Caribbean a few years ago and had a great time. This time around, I've found it to be a shadow of what it was from even a few years ago. The number of activities was far fewer. The food quality, preparation, and potions lower. Large blocks where child care was unavailable including during formal dining. And between myself and others in my group there were so few positive staff ...

Was multi-generational trip including first cruise for 7 and 9 year old granddaughters.

I felt Misled

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We chose this cruise because we wanted to see some new cultures and islands with our kids and experience being on a cruise ship. The staff, food, entertainment were all wonderful. The part that felt misleading was the fact that we had no interaction with any of the cultures of the Islands we visited directly. Royal Caribbean only takes you to the parts of the Island that they have rented or ...

First RCCL Cruise . . . Very Average

We were on a multi-generational family cruise, and the main appeal (during COVID times) of only visiting two private cruise ship islands, Labadee and CocoCay, swayed us to all try Royal Caribbean for the first time. Both islands were spectacular, and we would highly recommend private cabanas. Labadee was our favorite of the two, especially since we were the only ship at port. CocoCay was too ...

Our trip went to Labadee, San Juan, St. Maarten, St. Croix and Perfect Day. Embarkation was very easy and practically walked onto the ship when we got there. Our first stop was to get our safety briefing which has been modified to watch a video (do it before you get on the ship) and you were ready to cruise. Windjammer Cafe was well laid out with lots of options. It did get pretty crowded at ...

Overall we had a great cruise. Staff always great on royal. We tried the ultimate dining package for the first time. We where one of the first to board and we went right to Jamie's to make bookings for the whole week. We where only able to get two reservations for dinner at chops and no lunches. So I feel sorry for people that didn't get on the ship early enough to get reservations. WE ate at ...
