Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas

Sail Date: April 26, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Great ship, gorgeous interior, well kept up, lots of activities for the guests. However, it felt very crowded much of the time. Bars were full, shopping areas were full, Service by cabin attendants was slow. The cabin attendants were over worked or over extended. The rooms were left untouched if your schedule and their schedule conflicted. The food service is declining as the cruise line cuts costs. The speciality restaurants were excellent. However, the day to day main fare in the dining room and Wind Jammer Lounge was nothing to brag about. Plenty of food was available but the quality is going down hill.

Pros: Great Ship, Lots of activities available to guests

Cons: Service felt rushed, food is declining except in optional special restaurants
