12 Night Greece & Turkey (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 16, 2012
Ship: Mariner of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Very nice ship which is, overall, very well maintained. Enjoyed the new "touch screen assistance boards" which are located on each floor.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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.


3 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff and captain were all very friendly and helpful.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was very clean with the exception of some worn carpet in a few areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
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.

Pros: Ship staff and captain

Cons: Food quality

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!
