Low buck, spur of the moment trip, BEWARE OF THE FINAL BILLING PRACTICES!
Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Review summaryDecent cruise especially given hurricane season discounts. It is well known that at the end of each cruise gratuities are added to each account. I have no issue with this practice. However, my interpretation of one account is one CC on file to be billed for on-board charges, thus one account. Royal Caribbean does not agree! I authorized my wife to also be a signer on the ship's account, which by RC this constitutes two accounts and consequently I was charged 2X the gratuities, plus all that I tipped during the cruise! I complained to customer service and was basically told to pound sand. Beware of this business practice! I am angry about this, but being a seasoned cruise taker know that complaining to the cruise lines about anything, (not that I am a chronic complainer- i am not!) especially after the trip, is a complete waste of time, so take heed from my words here and dont let them do this to you.
