Eastern Mediterranean 12 Night Cruise

Sail Date: May 16, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Very nice ship which is, overall, very well maintained. Enjoyed the new "touch screen assistance boards" which are located on each floor.

Pros: Ship staff and captain

Cons: Food quality

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food was good, but, bland and somewhat repetitious. Main dining room food was better, but, took at least an hour to dine. We ate mostly in the Windjammer Cafe since we could sit oceanside and dine faster.
Lots of activities but we would like to have Greek activities and Greek food while we were visiting Greece and Italian food and activities while visiting Italy, and so forth.
Ship Quality
Ship was very clean with the exception of some worn carpet in a few areas.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was great and we very much enjoyed our balcony for watching the ship arrive and leave in the various ports. The balcony was, also, very handy for drying clothes we washed since this was a longer cruise. Stateroom attendent was great and kept our room very clean. TV movie selection is very limited and old unless you pay a big fee for a recent release.
Service and Staff
The staff and captain were all very friendly and helpful.
