Verified Review
12 Night Holy Land (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 14, 2011
Ship: Mariner of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Ship was very well maintained, efficiently run, and accommodated all of the passengers very well. Because it is so large, and holds so many passengers, it and the staff in some ways seemed to be going through the motions - "one more group to push through".

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We ate mostly in the Windjammer (buffet), and after a while it seemed to be the same old food.


3 out of 5
Ice skating was probably top show, followed by the Beatles tribute
