First Time Cruise

Sail Date: January 15, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

This was our first cruise. We had an interior state room with a 2 yr old but there was enough room as long as you stayed organized. The food was great. We were told the only dining time was 8:30 when we booked. We tried to switch to earlier but didn't want the hassle. With a 2 yr old, dinning wasn't the best option anyway. There is a buffet and it was great every time. The pools are set up for more mature travellers and there is nothing for kids with regards to pools, but my daughter loved the hot tubs. We never saw much of the entertainemnt as we were in our state room by 8 each night.

Pros: Food was great, lodging great

Cons: This particular ship set up for a older crowd. Not the best for children. No fun water park for kids.

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Children's Programs
Nothing much for under 3 yrs.
Ship Quality
Nice clean and orderly ship.
Food and Dining
Great food at the Buffet (Windjammer), never tried the dining room.
Cabin / Stateroom
What we expected for interior state room. Cleaned twice daily. Stay organized and you don't notice the limited space.
Service and Staff
Stae room attendant was amazing. Rest of the staff was very nice.
