Good cruise

Sail Date: June 20, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship is big, well-maintained, and offers a lot of fun activities. Food could be better, and service was very good most of the time.

Pros: Ship, activities, nice cabin

Cons: Food

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
2 nights in the dining room were terrible. Sirloin steak should be missed. We found the buffet to be good, but we opted for salads & healthy fare. The burgers at the buffet did not look good; had pizza once & it was decent.
Service and Staff
Average because there were activities (e.g. bingo, ice skating) that were very poorly organized. I would strongly suggest a chance for adults to ice skate without kids. We had been assured that with our names on the wait list we would skate the next day, only to be bumped again. The ice show is definitely recommended. Comedian is terrible.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Mazatlan, Mexico
We walked around Mazatlan's Old Town. Didn't go to the Zona Dorada. Maz is a beautiful town, but run down more than the rest so many people don't like it. Visit the Malecon and the Cathedral.
Don't Miss: Cathedral, Malecon
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Beautiful tourist area, Malecon is worth seeing.
Don't Miss: Cathedral, sculptures at Malecon
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
We went through Cabo Sailing. Great time!
