Basic Cruise - Rather Boring!

Sail Date: July 01, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

Having been on RCCL years ago - this ship was an absolute disappointment! - Everything you want to do you need to "SWIPE YOUR SEAPASS" - you often wonder what you paid for - there were way too many kids and activities for them were nil (we'd traveled with 3 of them) - our cruise had over 900 of them on it - the food quality was marginal at best - overpriced wine selections - stateroom attendant that was non existent until the end of the cruise - this was my last RCCL cruise and I would NOT recommend this to anyone unless your idea of a good time is staying at a Red Roof Inn and dining at Old Country Buffet!!

Pros: Dining Room Server

Cons: KIDS - KIDS - KIDS!!!

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? No.

Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
If this was refurbished - then it needs to go back for another
Shows were awful and so were the activities each day -
Children's Programs
I still would like to know about the so called adventure club - as our 3 boys never knew about anything it offered - thank goodness they had a basketball court on board so they could stay busy - no group activities whatsoever!!
Ship Quality
Way too many people
Service and Staff
They tried their best to keep us happy
