Highlights galore to be found on Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas. What a fun ship. Packed with hideouts and filled with things to do. The hardware is something to behold. Every detail is meticulously attended to. I liked the glass staircase, the Royal Promenade, the gorgeous dining room.
Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas’ cabins are a little tight for my liking but I was not in the suites. The inside and oceanview cabins I was able to call home were adequate. The perks start in the upper balcony cabins and suites. Royal Caribbean has launched a new program to incentivize customers to upgrade. One of the annoying upgrades is reserved poolside seating. This brilliant solution is not getting a lot of support. In fact those that cruise a lot want one price and that should cover 5-star service, accommodations, and food. Can the cruise lines deliver?
