Let me begin by saying the ship is incredible, its a beautiful ship, very clean, and has an excelent staff. Unfourtinaly thats where the good points end. Royal Carribean should realy rethink their polocy on letting 18029year old drink onboard. Even though their not allowed to get hard liquor, its still not a deturrent. Everywhere we went their were drunk teenagers, and for the most part they werent only drunk, they were fall down cant walk drunk.

The food was so so at best, I have been on Princess and Carnival cruises and the food on Mariner just cann not compare to theirs. The best meal we had was in Jhonny Rockets (with the expection of Portifino..its a must). Other then that, you can not get anything decent to eat after 10:30 or so..they close the WindJammer, and only have a small bar open on the promonade. And if you want anything other then water to drink..forget it. I wanted a glass of some kind of juce and you can not get it at night on the ship.

The entertainment was ok at best, the Ice Show was outstanding, however the shows in the main thearter were boring. They did bring in outside enternainment that was outstanding, however they only had that one night.

Bottom line..i would not go on this ship agan, their are way to many people for the public space provided. Their is alot to be said about the smaller ships in the aspect.

Pros: The Staff was incerdible, ship was beautiful

Cons: Lack of activities, no chairs at the pool, so-so food
