Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review SummaryJust got back from Sept. 2 sailing of the Mariner. We have sailed on this ship MANY times - there is a reason - GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! In our busy worlds, where I'm sure I can not remember a strangers name (on any given day), to save my life - each staff member seems to remember hundreds of names, faces,
likes & dislikes - on a weekly basis. The Mariner staff emanates warmth, compassion and zest for their jobs. This cruise was blessed with a large number of retired passengers - all having life stories to tell - all made to feel as if theirs was the only story that mattered - for that moment. ANY AGE or STAGE in your life - this will truly be a memorable cruise to discover.
Food and Dining
CHOPS GRILL - TOP NOTCH!!!!! We leave a ADDITIONAL cash tip - the waiters recieve the entire tip that way to spilt between 2 not 7. Don't get me wrong - the dinning rooms are Great - but the food in the Windjammer is great, if you do not want to stick to a time frame.
BINGO - purchase your bingo dog for extra jackpot cards - its worth it!
The Schooner Piano Bar is tucked away BEHIND the Casino beside the Drangons Lair Nightclub - check it out - Dan the Piano Man does a Great job.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Balconies are very peaceful - ocean air.
Pros: The STAFF & FOOD ARE ALWAYS CONSISTENTLY GREAT!
Cons: THE 8th DAY
