sailing out of Singapore it is obviously aimed at the Chinese market. For my family that was not a problem, however, the free-for-all in the Windjammer buffet restaurant would spoil anyones holiday. Never again!!!!!!!!

DON'T GO ON THIS SHIP! and no these capital letters are an understatement. I had half of the people who were cruising for the first time with us and they ALL said they would NEVER DO cruise AGAIN as their option to travel.

Check the menu for the dining room and if you don't like it, go the buffet. There were some days with great option, but some days were not as great. Buffet had plenty of options every day, so you could find what you want. Go to the pool early, gets really packed by 11 am.

The dining room service was excellent. The food was average. The vegetables were always fresh but, the meat was always over cooked. After three dinners in the dining room I ate in the Windjammer which had a greater variety of food and you could at least get filled up on good vegetables.

The 'Our Time' dining is a lot more flexible. You only have a window of 15 minutes for early and late dining.

Learn which side of ship your cabin is on to easy finding it the first few times. Remember: food is aft, entertainment forward. Simplifies which way to head out.

If the buffet gets too crowded for breakfast, ask a crew member if it is okay to grab a table in one of the speciality restaurants located just off the buffet, usually they will say yes!

We found deck 6 on our last night. You can get to the very front or very rear of the ship from this deck only. Was a nice/quiet spot.

Mariner was repositioning to Spain to undergo RCCL’s biggest refit to date. Demolition was underway the entire cruise, but rarely was it noticeable. Some things, like elevators, that were out of service were not being repaired. The staff also were on their last contract and many on this repositioning had just come on board to make the crossing as some crew from Asia (notably Chinese) could not make the trip due to visa restrictions. Therefore service was a bit spotty, especially in the specialty restaurant, Chops. Also the repositioning had over 2200 cruisers with Diamond elite status and above, with nearly 150 in the fop tier (Pinnacle). That stressed the ships ability to provide its normal Diamond and above amenities. Especially for those who had spent the money for a Grand Suite and above.

to have the staff trained in Customer Service and give them some information about the ship. Everything you asked they don't know.
