Our First Cruise

Sail Date: May 23, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

I loved the interaction between the Captain and the guests. Every day he would get on the intercom and address and explain what was going on. It made such a large ship personal.

Pros: The Mariner Of The Seas was beautiful, modern and elegant.

Cons: The constant reminders of additional gratuity

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
The food was average.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was open and had a fantastic balcony. (worth the upgrade)
Many options included extra charges.
We should have brought more card games.
Ship Quality
The ship was like an endless city. Exciting!
Service and Staff
All Staff was friendly and helpful.
A special thanks to Joel (bartender @ Wig & Gavel) He answered all of our questions about living on a Cruise Ship. He was GREAT!
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Cabo was beautiful to see from our balcony, but once we got there we were flooded with annoying vendors
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Beautiful. We walked on the beach and enjoyed the view. Breathtaking!
Don't Miss: The beach @ no charge
Mazatlan, Mexico
This port looked dirty and unappealing.
Don't Miss: Miss it...its not worth it.
