Memories Made on the Mariner of the Seas

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We had a great cruise aboard the Mariner of the Seas. It has helped us make many memories of celebrating our 29th anniversary. The customer service that we encountered was very good. The food was great and the dining room staff excellent. The shows were awesome including the ice show. There was never a dull moment on the ship - always plenty to do. We would definitely recommend this ship to our friends.

Pros: Grand Cayman

Cons: Jamaica

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
We did not spend much time in our stateroom so these things really did not matter to us. It would have been nicer to have a little bigger room, but that will not hinder us from cruising again. We had very little interaction with our stateroom attendant which was different from our cruise with Celebrity. Our stateroom was always cleaned quickly and we loved the towel art with the special detailed personalization.
Service and Staff
Everyone we encountered was very friendly and willing to do what they could to help us have a more enjoyable cruise.
There was an overabundance of activities for everyone to participate in. We never were bored and wanted for something to do.
Ship Quality
Very clean and organized. Carpets could be updated.
Food and Dining
The food selections were great and the dining room staff were superb. We did try to make reservations for Chops Grille and the Portofino, but by Tuesday everything was booked. we were disappointed in that. The presentation of the food was always pleasing to the eyes. We couldn't have asked for any better waiters. Homemade ice cream on the Celebrity Constellation was definitely a plus.
Cozumel, Mexico
Lots of shopping here. If you couldn't find what you were looking for, you weren't looking.
Don't Miss: Shopping
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
We were very disappointed in this island. Agressive behavior of the "salesmen" was bothersome and a big turn off. We also did not enjoy our excursion - the 4X4 Safari Adventure . We felt the driver's "driving" was unsafe and not enjoyable at all. It helped further our prayer lives a whole lot that day. Dunn's River Falls was pretty even in the pouring down rain.
George Town, Grand Cayman
We are likely to come back to this island. It is beautiful and the people were very friendly without being pushy. The tour guide was very informative and fun - trolley roger.
Don't Miss: Shopping & trolley roger
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Beautiful beaches, nice music, and great barbecue here in Labadee.
Don't Miss: Food & dragon's breath
