I have been on other Royal Caribbean ships, this was the worst! The food was of diner standard and the wait staff was less than satisfactory. The state room attendants were however, fantastic as was the programs offered to our children of varying ages (5-16 years). The port experiences were okay, the Cococay being horrible but St Thomas and St. Maartin were good but gave little to no cultural exchange. The Cococay Island was obviously a manmade disneylike island that lacked creativity and splendor. The worst experience by far was waiting on line in the very hot sun for the ferry, which there were only two running. It was worrisome for those with health conditions or other impairments.

Pros: Did well for kids

Cons: food was not very good

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? No.
