Wonderful, and still room for improvemen

Sail Date: October 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Noro virus outbreak was disruptive for the crew and passengers. Ship is very comfortable otherwise.

Pros: Staff was eager to please; cabin was comfortable; we wanted to go to these ports.

Cons: Food was just ok\, not great. Excursions were expensive; cruise lines/ tour guides definitely get a kick back from the stores they channels passengers to. Much higher prices at the \"recommended\" stores -- and we saw our tour guide get a check from the store after the sales were tallied.

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Nothing special. Buffet was tiresome\, repetitive.
