Had a wonderful time aboard the ship

Sail Date: May 09, 2010

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

I have traveled on several ships. This is the second time in many years that I have been on a RCC line. The Mariner of the Seas was what I expected. The stateroom had ample space for two adults. Loved the shower. On some other cruise lines the bathroom accommodations are very limiting, however, our facilities met our needs. Only concern was the septic smell that lingered in the hallways the last three nights of the cruise. Over all, the cruise was fun and very relaxing.

Pros: Our stateroom, dining on "your time"

Cons: The onboard shops had very limited inventory.

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
We used the dining room mostly; breakfast, most lunches and all dinners. Shrimp was very dissapointing, too water logged. Enjoyed the salad bar during lunch.
Enjoyed most of the shows. The last show, "80's revival" was not very good.
Ship Quality
The Septic smell on the seventh deck, forward
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room met our needs. The closets space was large for two adult ladies. Really enjoyed the ample space of our stateroom.
Service and Staff
Have a great waiter and his assitant! Our wine captain was always ready to serve our drinks during our dinner service time. Great job!
