Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review by kbeanz
- Sail Date: March 2017
- Destination: Asia
The Cafe Promenade was great (the pizza I heard was amazing) for late night snacks.
Our cabin was on the 7th deck - had a balcony. Clean room, attendant was great. Had issues with hot water.
The only night we ate in the Dining Room was the first night and the food was amazing. It failed every night thereafter and we ate in the Windjammer. Not enough options in the Dining Room to please everyone. The Windjammer was packed most times and finding seating was a real problem.
There were literally NO events on the ship - I guess we've been spoiled with other cruise lines but especially for a day at sea you'd expect the DJ banging out tunes or contests on deck - anything to keep people entertained - and there was nothing.
Onboard activities we did not enjoy.
Whirlpool in the gym was broken (jets not working and the water was not warm). Sauna and steam room were clean.
We booked all but one excursion through RC - very expensive and we were not thrilled. One tour in particular (2nd day Phuket) we felt we did not get our moneys worth. The one day in Langkawi we decided to do our own thing and it was the best day for us.
Definitely would not do this cruise again - for many reasons not necessarily related to RC.

Batu CavesThis excursion was very rushed. Though it was an 8 hour excursion, the drive into Kuala Lumpur took most of the trip. Left us with very limited time to actually enjoy stuff.View All 16 Batu Caves Reviews
LangkawiWe decided to book a cab and go to the sky cabs here. Best (and cheapest) way to go. We were not rushed, did our own thing and it cost us less than half of what was being charged on RC. Even met some other cruisers.View All 88 Langkawi Cruise Port Reviews
