Not so great this time
Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Review summaryWe enjoy cruising and have been on most carriers. We have cruised Royal Caribbean ships 3 times in 2019, and this was our second cruise on the Mariner of the seas this year. It was a great experience in August so we decided to take my parents on the ship as a present and pull them away from Disney cruise lines. It was a good cruise but the soda machines didn’t work and were out of most sodas when they did for most of the cruise which is disappointing considering it’s $14 dollars a day per person to use those. No help from the customer service on this. Also, the casino staff wasn’t going to pay wins on three separate occasions and I was called a liar in the casino, that is until the lit boss came and reviewed and found I did indeed make the bet on lucky ladies which I was then paid on. Still ridiculous though. This was our third royal Caribbean cruise this year alone, and by far the worst experience this year with the line. Very disappointing

Don’t book a promenade room and watch your bets in the casino. Also forgo the soda package and bring your own on board.
