We originally planned on going to Rome for a week but soon realized it was cheaper to take this cruise back to the states than fly back! 16 nights for $509 pp. This was an unbelievable bargain. Especially starting in Rome and going to Corsica, Mallorca, Cartegena, Spain, two different stops in the Canary Islands and Nassau before disembarking in Galeveston. We spent 6 nights pre cruise based ...

My husband and I went on the September 8 sailing on the Mariner of the Seas to the Eastern Mediterranean. Before the cruise, we took a 5-day land tour of Italy, as part of a RC Cruisetour package. The land portion of the trip was excellent. We had a Promenade cabin. It was noisy. I do not recommend them. We usually cruise with Celebrity. We chose this package because of the itinerary, especially ...

OK. Short and sweet. Ship is not new but you'd never know it. Spotless and well maintained. Staff is awesome with a ton of personal attention and activities to keep you busy on board. Plenty of themed bars with music and entertainment to satisfy every age group, genre and taste. Speaking of taste, the food is excellent with several places to eat during all kinds of hours and all ...

Let me start by saying that despite the date showing on the calendar, the weather was summer hot, hot, hot. The itinerary was outstanding with a good mix of four countries. While some of the reviews I have read on the Mariner of the Seas mentioned that the ship was old and tired is absurd. The ship is clean and well maintained and the staff were more than accommodating. While I don't utilize ...

We are first time cruisers and first time to Europe. Taking this cruise achieved our goal of getting a "sample" of cruising and of Europe. The ship is well maintained, clean and have very good staff. the balcony stateroom was a good choice even though we were on the sea only at night. The embarkation was a little confusing for us, but went quite well. Arriving in Rome early in the morning ...

Just got back from a 7-day Rome cruise on the Mariner, and that ship is beautiful! Every European port that we visited, our ship was the largest and the most beautiful in the harbor. Even more important, the crew obviously enjoy what they are doing and work well together as a team to provide the best service we ever had. The ship itself is maintained meticulously, and we saw no evidence at ...

My husband and I cruised on the August 19th sailing. We had a fantastic time. The English speaking passengers were very much a minority on this sailing(not sure if this is the case every week being that it sails from Civitavecchia). All annoucements were made in English and Italian and there even was an Italian counterpart to the English speaking cruise director, who had a whole Italian speaking ...

We were anticipating an OK cruise but got a really good one. We are fortunate to cruise quite frequently, and have gone on numerous Mediteranean cruises on Princess, HAL and years ago on RCCL. None were as good as this one. Our group consisted of myself and my husband both 55,and three boys 18, 19, and 23, and one girl 21. The kids are somewhat jaded as they have cruised and traveled since they ...
