7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 30, 2009
Ship: Mariner of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple

The ship was beautiful. It was very well-maintained. The staff were very curteous and very helpful. Excellent customer service. The staterooms were clean. It was spacious enough for my husband and I. The activities were very fun as well.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The quality of the food in the dining room was great. I felt like I was eating at a 5 star restaurant every single day. I picked an earlier dining time which I didn't get but it worked out better because after dinner we would walk right over to the shows.


5 out of 5
The different activities on the ship were fun. From the Newlywed game show, karaoke, the different production shows, comedians, etc.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Every single staff member we encountered were extremely nice. From the dining room staff, the bartenders, the pool staff, the activities directors. Everyone was just so welcoming.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The size of the ship was pretty big. Public areas were very well maintained. It was always clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The size of the stateroom was decent. It was comfortable for my husband and I. The beds were very comfortable. Our room was close enough to the elevators which was good.

All we did was look at the shops. The water was pretty dirty so we didn't get in.

We have been here before. It was nice to just go to the resort that allows you to use all their amenities and relax in the pool.

I really liked this port. This was the one place I wanted to visit the most. The water is beautiful. We didn't pay for any extra excursions. We did the glass bottom taxi tour and we were taken to Lover's Beach, we saw the famous arc, and getting in the water was great.
Don't Miss: Get in the water. Definitely very refreshing.

Pros: staff, activities, ports of call, food, accomodations
