Review SummaryWe sailed on Mariner the end of June, taking the ship to St. Thomas, St Martin. The Ship was enormous, well layed out, and very nice. However the food (with the expection of Protfinos) was so so, even Chops was a mediocer meal (foods better at Outback). On the food note, with the expection of the slow slow room servicec or the very limited Promonade Cafe, their wasnt anywhere to get a snack after 10!! Come on crusies are know for food all the time, all the othert lines have it, get with it RCCL! The service was great on the upside. Checkin and out was fast. My only other gripe is that RCCL serves Beer and Wine to the 18-20yo croud (with parental concent), and this lead to many of the people in this age group visibaly fall down drunk all the time and it made some shows and other public events unenjoyable.
Pros: Expansive size of the ship, Portifino
Cons: Long Lines, Few Activities, No Cast off Party, Way to many Drunk Teenagers.
