7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 23, 2008
Ship: Mariner of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago

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.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
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.
