Not so Memorable Cruise

Sail Date: May 31, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Cruising on RCCL has really changed (for the worse) over the past few years. They now want to charge you for everything they can. If you want the better quality steak in the dinning room than it is an upcharge of $15. There use to be items such as midnight buffets that made cruises memorable and enjoyable - no more, no mint on your pillow at night - basically nickle and diming you, just like the airlines. This cruise experience was not like a 5 star resort but a Motel 6 stay. Sorry RCCL but it may be a long time before you see this family again.

Pros: Mystery Theater, Ice Show, Cruise Ended

Cons: Everything else

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? No.
