Christmas in the Caribbean!

Sail Date: December 21, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was beautiful, elegant and offered virtually every options imaginable.

Pros: The spa and fitness facilities were the best of an ship I've been on.

Cons: The on-board shopping was lacking. There were just not enough options, and many of the goods available on-board were too similar to those avaiable in the ports of call.

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was very accesibile. We were traveling with my 87 year old mom, who had a walker. There was always a wheelchair available on board for use. And, we had ordered some adaptive equipment from CareVacations--which was delivered right to the stateroom prior to our arrive, and was picked up after our departure at the end of the week.
Food and Dining
The food was fabulous. It was definitely 4-5 start quality and didn't seem like "food service" in any way.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
The staff went above and beyond -- particularly with my elderly mother. She truly had the time of her life.
