The Best Cruise Ever!

Sail Date: November 26, 2006

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our 5th Cruise and by far the Best. The staff and the accomidations made it a very pleasant experience. The size of the room and the maintenance of it were great. The only disapointment was the lack of a nightly midnight buffet.

Pros: The staff were ALL wonderful, the Room was Great, as was the Food

Cons: Only 2 Midnight Buffets and if you had the late dinner seating it was too short a time - should be open to 2AM or 3AM

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
I loved the common areas especially the Promanade, it was nice not having to go to other floors to shop, everything was on one level.
Food and Dining
The Windjammer Buffet was very limited. Not a good sugar free desert selection, too many cookies!!!
Cabin / Stateroom
I loved keeping the balcny door open it was like having a private cruise. The room was very spacious.
Service and Staff
The staff are what makes the whole experience A+
The Ice Show was unbelievable, the rest of the entertainment was standard ship entertainment, enjoyable but nothing like the Ice Show quality.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We rented a car, toured the Island on our own and it was great. Very reasonably priced and was very impressed with St. Maarten. Would love to return in the near future.
Don't Miss: The Butterfly Farm, a great experience.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
I didn't think that I would like this but it was very relaxing and fun.
Don't Miss: The view of the ship from the light house.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
I was disapointed with the Island as a whole. Not clean, not friendly, crazy, unsafe drivers.
Don't Miss: Take a trip to St. Johns, just a cab and ferry ride away.
