Hi,We have just completed a 6 night cruise with Mariner of the Seas.
We were travelling in a Family group of 6, and we all had Balcony suites on Deck 8. I cannot speak highly enough of the crew or the ship, as we all had a wonderful time and we would turn around and board again and sail off again tomorrow. They allowed us to open the doors to our balconies, so we had one huge long balcony which was great. Could not fault the food, service or the ship.
In my opinion 5 stars all the way. We all will certainly cruise with Royal Caribbean again.
This cruise ship travels at 22 knots, carries 3,114 passengers and 1,185 crew, has 15 decks and is 1,020 feet in length.
Royal Caribbean Cruises is known for its innovative entertainment, and this vessel is no exception. The rock climbing wall and ice skating rinks were some of the first at sea, and the mini-golf course, basketball court and in-line skating tracks keep the sea days full of activity.
Casino Royale has recently seen an update, the complimentary broadway-style theatre productions are professionally produced evenings of fun, the ship-wide Wi-Fi makes keeping in touch easy, and the Vitality Spa offers more than 100 treatments.
There are also four pools, six whirlpools, an adults-only retreat, and a state-of-the-art fitness centre with tai chi and yoga classes.
A stay on the Mariner Of The Seas can be as luxurious or as practical as you like, with a range of cabin options throughout the ship.
The suites are spacious and luxurious, most have balconies, they all have separate areas, and some have personal complimentary concierge services and a baby piano. On the other end of the scale, the interior rooms have private bathrooms and comfortable amenities, and some have windows overlooking the Royal Promenade.
Meals are a breeze with complimentary breakfast, lunch and dinner available both in the Main Dining room and from several eateries including cafes, a sushi bar, a hotdog outlet and an Asian-fusion restaurant.
