A very good Cruise

Sail Date: August 23, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

The Ship was great. It navigated beautifully although the Ocean was
extremely calm so I could not gage it in rough weather.

Pros: The Large Junior Suite, The Ship itself, The Food, The Casino Royal, The Stores

Cons: The problems at embarkation. No wheelchairs available. Attendant not helpful.

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Service and Staff
My Cabin stewart was not up to par. Everytime (not often) I asked
something he would say that he had a lot more cabins to take care
besides mine. I believe he might have been a bit overworked.
Also everything I asked was first "no" and then it would be done.
Waste of time. The Reception was OK for the most part. The Casino Royal
was good with the Rumanians a bit uptight inspite a many tips.
The Indian crew in the Restaurant on level 5 was Superb.
Could not hear the Carioke singers because of the extremely loud music.
Ship Quality
Very clean, everything working properly.
Food and Dining
The Attendants from India at our table were superb.
Cabin / Stateroom
Amenities were a bit lacking. I have been in cuises that provided
all the little things necessary.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Great tour of the city, good restaurant, Great Church. It would be nice to add a Museum and/or a Gallery.
Don't Miss: The Church, the Restaurant, the Light House.
Mazatlan, Mexico
Lots to see and very nice for the first 4 hours. The Tour lasted much longer that planned with old people having to stand for one hour and one half in a store because we were not allowed to stay on the bus as promised.
Don't Miss: The Church and the show.
