This was a memorable cruise with great accommodations! We especially enjoyed the Diamond Club benefits. We also liked our table of 8 who were ALL from the great state of TEXAS!

Cruise is a little bit old and the food is not as good as it used to be. However, the prices have gone down significantly. You get what you pay for. The services at the ship from the crew members were very professional!

Staff was very friendly and made it an enjoyable cruise. We were in a very small minority of English-speaking guests on the cruise - we knew this in advance, and this was not a problem. In fact we were treated as VIP "International guest"

Mariner Is still a lovely old ship
Reviewed on: 02 Mar 2019
The Mariner has been updated to meet the desires of family and the short term sailings that they are doing at this time. The food was really good and as a frequent Princess traveller - The food in the regular restaurants has taken unbelieveable increase in options and taste. There was escargot nightly and Prime Rib the first night. It was a delightful experience that has drastica;lly improved since our last Trip on this very ship.

We had a good time however, we were deceived with the picture package. We didn't get most of the pictures we took with our family, and we paid for unlimited pictures, they said they couldn't find our photos.

First cruise was awesome!

We really enjoyed our first cruise together! Our room (with window) was surprisingly spacious. The food was amazing, we found no reason to dine in any of the up-charged restaurants! We were very impressed with our waitstaff, room service, bartenders and other employees. The highlight of the trip was our day spent at CocoCay! What a beautiful place! I would have loved to have spent both days there and bypassed Nassau. It was a wonderful trip and I will definitely be a repeat customer! :)

Good, not great
Reviewed on: 23 Jun 2019
This ship was very well appointed, with 14 decks of “something for everyone”. We had no issues with the ship, but the service could have been better; less desperate to sell you something. It was a 3 night Bahamas sailing, so imagine family reunions, Bachelorette and Bachelor parties, etc... I imagine, like us, many paid their fees before they arrived and did not intend to spend more once on board. We did have a beverage package, tips included, so the bartenders weren’t rude by any means, just not eager to serve as in trips past when they were “earning” a tip. Additionally, it rained while in our port cities, and we understand that the catch 22 is they need the ports to be happy, so they don’t offer onboard activities while docked, but a great majority of passengers were on board to stay away from the rain with no activity to entertain them. We loved our special dining experiences at Chops and Jamie’s and room service on our balcony. Still looking ahead to a future cruise.

Food gone down hill fast and prices up.

We always eaten in the Specialty Dinning rooms for food quality. Chops has gone down, Italian restaurant just as bad. Windjammer Good. They Charge $45.00 a person for crap (Sorry but that is what it is) They Have jacked up all the drink prices. Not happy and will definitely not recommend. What happened to the good old days when the cruise lined Cared?

I was surprisingly happy with the whole experience. I took a cynical view of a Royal Caribbean cruise. I am such a snob but our room, ( a suite) was so big and the largest balcony we had since our Cunard Royal Suite. The speciality dining and regular dining was fantastic. The staff was lovely. I love that RC has a beverage package that includes bottled water. So important! A perfect experience.

Upon reserving 3 balcony rooms side by side for a family trip I was told by a Royal Caibbean representative that the balcony dividers could be opened upon request. when we boarded the ship I requested it and was told no, we then went to guest services and they also said no. Had this been explained to me from the beginning I never would have booked balcony rooms.
