My family cruise

Sail Date: January 15, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

It was immediately obvious that Royal has cut back on staff and services. While our evening dining experience was wonderful, the menu for breakfast and lunch in the dining room were barely ok. The bar staff around the pool were understaffed and it took a while to get drinks when ordered. Our stateroom was well taken care of but we missed the extra touches that made Royal so special. For example, no lotions, no stationary, no chocolates no towel animals every night..

Pros: Relaxing and being with my family

Cons: The entertainment

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Evening meal in the dining room was wonderful. Breakfast and lunch in the dining room was ok. The Windjammer cafe was awful

Our stateroom was well taken care of but we missed the extra touches
Service and Staff
The evening shows were barely ok. Gary Mule Deer was great and the highlight of the entertainment. Elvis impersonator was awful
