A great cruise!

Sail Date: April 29, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We recently sailed on the Mariner of the Seas. We enjoyed our dining in the Rhapsody in Blue dining room which had exceptional waiters. Our waiters, Mario and Robert, were very friendly and did and exceptional job serving us. We enjoyed the ships shows, but they were limited. The ship was clean and the staff friendly. The food was excellent. We found that the dining tables in the windjammer and Jade buffet were not cleaned to our expectation.

Pros: Large stateroom on a lovely ship with friendly staff.

Cons: Lack of cleaning of the tables in the Jade and Windjammer buffet.
