An Outstanding Cruise!

Sail Date: August 05, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

To sum it all up.....we will be going on another Caribbean cruise next year and only, I repeat only, on the Royal other cruise line compares to them.

Pros: Everything....the ship, food, activities, room and most importantly the people who work on the ship

Cons: Need activities for the 21-25 year old singles who do not sit in the bar and get drunk.

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Service and Staff
Every staff member always had a smile on their face. These people work so very hard and deserve every bit of our respect. From out stateroom attendant (she is absolutely delightful) to our waiters (believe it or not, the other table that our waiter was working didn't give him the gratuity on the last day. They went out to one of the ship's restaurants the final night. Our table felt so bad for him.) The entertainers were outstanding. Loved our cruise activities fellow.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was perfect in size for 2 people - ocean view; always clean.
There were so many activites that you couldn't attend all since some were at the same time. For instance, there was a drawing for a piece or artwork at the same time as Bingo. We wanted to do both but couldn't. Instructions were great. Every day the instructions for Bingo were announced.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Highly recommend the tour of Blackbeard's Castle which includes a tour of historical buildings. Naturally, the shopping is a must. But I didn't bring enough money.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We just did the beach this day and it was outstanding. The tour guide was great. She was giving us a description of all buildings, plants, etc. along the way.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
We chose to take a tour on the glass bottom boat. Many of us expected the whole bottom of the boat to be glass and it wasn't. There was a "plank" in the middle which took away from seeing many of the fish.
