A fun experience with a lot of history

Sail Date: October 03, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was a good time. The food is alright, I wish they would coordinate the dinners with our current or next port of call. To somewhat resemble the local food. But it was decent quality.

They had hot tubs and pools which were cool. And the inboard activities were fun.

Pros: The ports of call.

Cons: Days at sea

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
They should coordinate food with the port of call to try and offer some authenticity.
The shows were cool. And they offered a nice variety of shows. It was fun.
Ship Quality
After the first few days. You learn your way around, but at first it's confusing trying to get oriented on the ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was awesome! Had a balcony with an awesome view. And our stateroom attendant was flawless!
Service and Staff
Everyone was extremely helpful and nice. And took a genuine interest in you when they talked to you.
Messina, Sicily
Hike up to the big church.
Souda (Chania), Crete
Just some more shopping, not that interesting.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Acropolis was super interesting.
Don't Miss: Acropolis
Istanbul, Turkey
Hagia Sophia, blue mosque, and Topkapi palace were all interesting and different than western Europe.
Rhodes, Greece
The castle was cool. And they also had a beach which had a built in high dive into the ocean. Pretty cool.
Don't Miss: Castle
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
