Review summary

We look forward to the Mariner again. With all the up front health protocals and hoops ti jump. It was well past worth it! They do make it easy on board. We did not feel like going due to masking but stayed open mind. It was really not bad or an issue. So many areas it was not required.

Was able to board a few min before our time. They do check you paper work about 6 times lol. But was super easy and fast. From front door to on board was 10 min.

We did not do much other than pool and music in the pub, schooner bar. It was all great. With only around 1000 onboard. Seemed so empty.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Not enough good to say! The staff was 2nd to none. So helpful and nice. You can truly tell they are happy to have you back in board and make you trip the best. Our waiter in main dinning room Bernard and Schubert in Chops were a joy to talk to and service was amazing.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We tend to like the larger ships just for space. But this ship was very clean and kept up nice! Upgrades really make it feel newer. Staff was always cleaning handrails in staircase.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Good size, very clean. A/C worked to keep up it seemed. Couch was alittle worn. Lots of storage!

Ship tip

Book dining ahead. If ship was a full capacity i could see pool area being tight.

Ports of call

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Always enjoy this stop. So much to do at no extra cost. The pool bar area gets wild as the day goes on. Water was perfect. Food was a little more limited due to covid, but worked well for us.

Nassau, Bahamas

Lot of working going on that in time will make this such a better port. We did a snorkle and was well worth it. But most all shops closed. Said to see. Like a gost town.

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
Great area to include Cocoa Beach for few days before stay. We ate at Grills night before to watch other sail aways. We WILL go back to Grills. Amazing food and service.
