The ship had good amenities on board easy to find your way around the ship. Service in dining room and stateroom was excellent! Disappointed that our son who is 14 months old had no where that he could swim and enjoy the water. 2 programs per day catered for children his age which were adequate. Staff very friendly my son enjoyed his play time. We were disappointed with how many guests did not take advantage of the play time there were 20 children his age on board we were MOST of the time the only parents that showed up for the allotted time. Everything was fairly priced on board other than the internet OUTRAGEOUS prices!! Entertainment on board was great we enjoyed quite a few shows in the evening. We would travel on Royal Caribbean again in the future. We had 3 ports of call 2 were EXCELLENT one was very disappointing DIRTY and not all that much to see and do. Mariner being a luxury cruise liner I was disappointed that they chose Mazatlan as a port of call......nothing luxury about that port.

All other staff were excellent except for Bar tender at the sport bar on the 14th level.... he would ignore you even if you were the only one in his bar...not friendly at all.
