This ship is beautiful, the staff wonderful, the food and shows - excellent. Only wish they had more activities on board during sea days.

Food and Dining

Excellent food. Had dinner at Chops and loved it. Service everywhere on the ship was top notch. Everyone seemed to go out of their way to be helpful.

Entertainment was top notch. Just wish they had had a few more activities on the days you were out at sea, but otherwise - wonderful.

Ship Quality

Although the Mariner of the Seas is a large ship, we became acclimated and after one day knew where everything was that we needed to get to, i.e. library, restaurants, etc.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
My husband walks with a cane so requested a disabled outside cabin. Stateroom was spacious and bathroom easily accommodated. Only wish their mattresses were a little softer.

Went ashore and did our own thing by taking the shuttle into town. However, demonstrations were going on again and it made getting around very difficult.
Don't Miss: Don't bother going in unless you take a tour or want to go shopping

Took a tour to Ephesus and to Mary's House. If we had not seen these beautiful places before, the guide would have ruined it for us. Limited information on these ancient places and left us alone a lot of the time. Only interested in keeping us at the rug factory and a leather good store he took us to.
Don't Miss: Both places should be seen with a good guide who can bring life to each of these fabulous places.

Have visited many times before and all I can say is that it is a wonderful place to explore on your own and have a little lunch at in a lush garden spot and enjoy!
Don't Miss: Lindos

What can one say about Italy except that the short tour we choose gave us another view of the city that we had visited many times before.
Don't Miss: Herculineum

Jerusalem. Although seeing the Holy City can be strenuous (for people our age), it was well worth it. The Via Dolorosa is a strenuous tour, but I'm glad I went. Bethlehem - didn't appreciate first stop being a shopping place.
Don't Miss: The Rock of the Dome Church

Took a tour to Nazareth, Galilee & Tiberius. Wonderful guide, very knowledgeable. Loved the tour because the guide was so enthusiastic about his City and he brought even more to this beautiful spot.
Don't Miss: Everything!

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing
