Virgin Cruisers!

Sail Date: November 14, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was a great trip for cruise virgins. The ship is big enough to have many options but not so huge that we got lost trying to fiind it all. Royal Caribbean really knows how to cater to their customers.

Pros: Lots of things to do!

Cons: Evening shows weren't very good

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Very clean. Colors were a little bit dated and carpets looked like they were a bit washed out but overall it's a great ship. Everything is easy to find. Signage was good. Many handicapped passengers aboard who seemed to get around just fine.
Service and Staff
Absolutely fabulous. Didn't know customer service like that still existed. Dining room staff were beyond amazing.
Bingo and ice shows were good. Singing & dancing shows were not worth going to. Didn't see the "adult humor" comedian so can't comment on that.
Food and Dining
Dining room was great. The other options...not as great. Room service and the buffet area on the 11th floor were not worth the effort, but I did have to give them an A for effort since they served a huge number of passengers.
Cabin / Stateroom
Inside stateroom was pretty claustrophobic for two people. Spend the extra money for an outside or balcony room. You'll be glad you did.
Mazatlan, Mexico
Went on an excursion into the Sierra Madre's & saw the little town of Copola. It was great!
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Don't Miss: Rent a jet ski and have fun in the bay!!
