Pretty Good Cruise

Sail Date: March 23, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was nice. Wait staff was fabulous.
The pool decks were way too crowded. There were not nearly enough deck chairs. People were very territorial over chairs and there were many arguments. The photography was not nearly as good as Carnival. Dress codes were not enforced which ruined the mood in the dining room.

Pros: Food was good. Ports were great.

Cons: Too few deck chairs. People were arguing about where to sit on the deck.

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Service and Staff
Everyone was great EXCEPT for the staff on the pool decks. They did not enforce the no saving chairs policy & often closed all of the whirlpools so that there were none available.
