Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The Windjammer Buffet was very limited. Not a good sugar free desert selection, too many cookies!!!


5 out of 5
The Ice Show was unbelievable, the rest of the entertainment was standard ship entertainment, enjoyable but nothing like the Ice Show quality.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff are what makes the whole experience A+

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.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I loved keeping the balcny door open it was like having a private cruise. The room was very spacious.

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.

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.
5 out of 5
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.

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!
