7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 26, 2006
Ship: Mariner of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was seriously overcrowded causing long lines and dangerously overloaded elevators, standing room only at shows. The ships food was a huge disappointment, we cruised this ship before and it was great this time the food was very poor in some cases inedible. It seems they are trying to force you to go to the extra cost eateries to increase profits.
The emphasis on clean hands and sanitizing stations was commendable but the lack of supervision of the buffet lines resulted in lines going in all directions and children using their hands to dig in the food, it is amazing the Norovirus did not run rampant due to the unsanitary overcrowding and lack of supervision in the buffet lines. Half the time only half of the buffet was open again resulting in long lines and overcrowding. Not only was this inconvienient it was dangerous. We will not return.
