As always, Royal Caribbean ships are beautifully built and furnished. The crew was extremely helpful and friendly. Facilities clean and well-maintained.

Food and Dining

Great food. Wait staff was superb. Always friendly and wanting to please. Can't say enough great things about the wait staff.

good quality of entertainment. Couldn't get in to see the ice show due to limited seating. Events in Studio B tended to fill up fast, so hard to get a seat unless you get there pretty early.

RCI always has the best crews.

sometimes elevators a little slow, but what do you expect when there are 3000+ passengers using them?

Very relaxing just walking around the cathedral area and the Malecon. Sand castle scuptures really nicely done. Don't miss Cafe de Tequila -- just off the main street, around the cornea from a friendly Huichol art shop.
Don't Miss: Cafe Tequila -- around the corner from the Huichol shop. Excellent food and salsa!

Taxi drops you off at a jewelry store.....hmmmm...does RCI get a kick back from their sales? Despite that, Diamonds International does have a great selection -- ended up buying a nice watch and pearl necklace there, tax and duty free.
Don't Miss: Shrimp Factory restaurant -- on the main drag in the Golden Zone

The port was built up a lot more than last time I was there. No complaints. Felt pretty safe walking around.
Don't Miss: Tequila shopping

Pros: stellar service with Royal Caribbean -- all the crew so helpful and friendly!

Cons: strange low-grade vibration on the ship, felt it almost constantly

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!
