As a Canadian, I was excited to escape from the ice globe and sail off to sun and sand. I must say for my first cruise it was awesome! Great food, excellent service from anyone who passed by, spoke to or dealt with on the ship. The nightly shows were great, packed with comedy, ice shows, feats of skilled acrobats, and more. The cruise director Asana was friendly, seriously funny, ...

Ship has a great layout. Very nice promanade area with shops, bars, eateries. Enjoyable entertainment of all varieties, including stage performances and ice skating show. Tremendous water slides, surf rider, rock climbing, laser tag, trampoline, etc. for kids and adults. Large TV screen by the pool for late night movies and nonstop viewing during the day. Pool side steel drum band. Excursion ...

So my wife and I decided to take a 7 day cruise to Belize, Roatan and Cozumel for a delayed honeymoon for the summer of 2014 (I can't recall the exact date but it was before June of last year). I heard Royal Caribbean was a more upscale cruise line as compared to Carnival so we went with the Mariner with the Seas. It was recently renovated and it showed. Arrival and embarkation was a breeze. Our ...

We left out of Galveston,not too bad getting on board once we got through the line for security. We were in a JS so got to move to front of line to receive sea pass. Got on board and found our cabins. Met our stateroom attendant immediately. Willy was very helpful and answered all our questions. He was always available and attentive to our needs. Ate all evening meals in the MDR. Our waiter ...

Well, we entered the Port of Galveston on Sunday, April 7, 2013 to an episode of what can only be defined as CHAOS. Disorganized, people scrambling, long lines, no sense of any real organization (foot traffic or vehicle traffic) other than a lot of people barking orders and no one really knowing what the heck was going on. Our luggage was taken quickly, but as we were waiting in what seemed like ...

We just returned from our Royal Caribbean cruise on Mariner of the Seas. It is our understanding that Mariner will be leaving Galveston and going to Asia in two weeks and Navigator will be replacing it in Galveston. This is going to be a good change, and there are so many things that are alike on both ships, that there will still be the same care and concern for its passengers. We drove in ...

We drove down from West, Texas on Saturday and stayed at the Super 8 in Kemah and would not recommend that hotel at all. While we were out for dinner someone came into our room and used our bathroom and the front desk would do nothing about it also our dead bolt would not work. We had to stack our suitcases in front of the door just for a little protection, but enough about that. We arrived at ...

Embarkation- Computers broke down during the middle of embarkation, it would have been nice for them to keep us updated other than that the line moved very quickly. Cabin- Perfect. I like sleeping in cold, dark, and quiet which makes an interior stateroom perfect for me. Our room steward was excellent although not very personable. I loved the towel animals and he even made me a few when it ...

We enjoyed our spring break cruise out of Galveston. We spent the night before at the Hampton Inn in League City and visited Kemah Boardwalk right down the road. It took only 30 minutes to the port and 1 minute to check in at Lighthouse parking. Baggage dropoff was disorganized, but it didn't take too long for boarding at 12:00 although it seemed like a long line. We previously cruised on ...
