Room Type: Balcony

We recently sailed on the Mariner of the Seas for the first time, and all I can say is "Wow!". We really like Royal Caribbean's style, service, and innovative ships. The Windjammer buffet really isn't a "buffet" anymore, now it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many more choices, stations you can approach from all sides (so no endless line!). Very wide-open and airy feeling, a huge step up from the typical ship buffet. We loved all the nightlife options. The shows were great. Our stateroom was cozy and had some new features (really liked the new shower 'door" vs the old curtains which always got the floor soaked). Lots of new storage elements have been added, easy to unpack and fell like there was a place for everything. Overall we have to say the ship was really impressive, the staff was wonderful as always, and even if you've sailed on Mariner of the Seas before, she's worth a second look.

Pros: The shows, the food, and the crew were great.

Cons: The wait for the elevators, we end up taking the stairs.
