  3. Mariner of the Seas
Embarkation at Singapore was very busy as Sapphire Princess was also at the pier however within 30 or so minutes we were on board, being in a suite sped this process up. We have been on Mariner twice before so knew our way around and as before the ship was in great condition and the staff were excellent. We are well aware that this was an Asian cruise with mostly Asian passengers on board so no surprises here, in fact they were the most orderly, some other nationalities left a lot to be desired!! We had a JS and it was wonderful and spacious, cabin man Andrew from india, one of the best we have had. Meals were all very good however we didn't use the buffet, there were bbq's most days therefore plenty of food choices. Pools were good but as previous some kids use the adults pool and staff are reluctant to ask them to leave. Disembarkation was also very smooth as were among the first off, the princess ship was there again so busy in the terminal but we had a taxi in about 20 minutes. All in all a great cruise on a quality ship with very interesting ports of call, penang the pick for its history. entertainment on board was average with singers and dancers most nights, the smaller bands were very good.
