a so-so cruise
Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Review SummaryA very nice ship. Decor was over the top and pools were clean and uncrowded. Entertainment was very limited due to not scheduling shows around meal times. Other cruises remedy this by having two shows so everyone can eat and attend but not Mariner of the Seas. The food was disappointing compared to other cruise lines in that most of the entrees and desserts served in formal dining were also available and frequently better at the buffet. I have never seen a buffet close at 9:00 before. The room stewards cleaned our room 4 of the 7 days we were out though we were gone from the room most of the time.
