Room Type: Oceanview

We traveled on Mariner of the Seas, 11/15 to 11/20. Check in at San Pedro port was the fastest of 6 cruises; 15 minutes from car parking lot to Windjammer buffet. The ship is huge with a beautiful Promenade, several large pool areas. The ship never appeared crowded even with over 3,000 passengers. The main dining room and Windjammer buffet were great to so so. The stateroom had a great layout; better than Carnival or Princess. I liked the drapery that can be closed to separate the bed with the "living area" so I can sleep in while my husband read. The temperature at all three ports were great; Cabo. 79 deg; Mazatlan, 81 deg; Puerto Vallarta, 88 deg. with no humidity. We chose to carry our luggage for debarkation. Best choice; off the ship at 8AM.

Pros: Large ship

Cons: Need improvement in entertainment

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

This is where RCI can improve. Production shows were fair. Only one we liked was the impressionist/singer.
