Review SummaryBy far, everything about the cruise on Mariner of the Seas was exceptional. The ship is clean, well managed, and a beautiful picture of decoration. The meals were excellent, well portioned, and tasteful. We ate breakfast, most lunches, and all dinners in the Rhapsody In Blue dining room. Service was excellent. Everyone was very professional and attended to all requests. The meals on this ship were far superior to anything I have every had on any Carnival cruise. The salad buffet in the main dining room at lunch time was excellent.
We saw the ice show on Voyager of the Seas previously but the show on this ship is far superior to any other. All of the evening performances in the Savoy Theater were wonderful. We never missed one and came away from each show with joy and happiness from the show team.
The promenade is the heart of the ship and really makes this class of ship the most fun to be on. We strolled, shopped, danced, and watched the 70s disco show and had a wonderful time. The sanctuary was wonderful and we used it several times especially the hot tub. Stateroom was excellent, well maintained and the stateroom attendant was excellent. Enjoyed all of the ports of call especially since this is the first time we have been to Falmouth, Jamaica, What a vast improvement from Montego Bay.
Am sorry that this ship is leaving Galveston to be permanently repositioned to the China Australia itinerary. I only hope the replacement ship, Navigator of the Seas is as good because for my money, Royal Caribbean is the very best cruise line, has the most inovative ships, and really takes good care of passengers. Can't wait for my next cruise with Royal Caribbean.
