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 ...

The Mariner of the Seas 09.15.12 cruise to the Holy Land from Rome was a very disappointing experience. It was the worst of the five cruises we have sailed on. The ship was very dated with chipped and broken bits in the bathroom, faded dank smelling hallway carpets with stains and sticky tables and chairs in the Windjammer restaurant. The floors were sticky all the time in the 5th floor ...

If you are in any doubt as to whether to cruise Royal Caribbean in the Med from an Italian port please read this review, it will save you a lot of stress. I will explain in more detail later. Sailed from Civitavechia/Rome on 1st September. Boarding quite painless, through check in in less than 10 mins. Went to our Promenade room and met our efficient steward Harry and went to Windjammer for some ...

We sailed from Civitavechia/Rome on 15th September. Boarding quite painless, through check in less than 10 minutes. Went to our room and met our efficient, very friendly and attentive steward Abraham Lincoln from Trinidad. We had lunch at the Windjammer. The Windjammer for breakfast or lunch was something we did out of necessity. The quality of food was adequate (we enjoyed the omelette's) but the ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 40s

Mariner of the Seas is a splendid cruise ship. This was my first cruise and was nervous because I get sea sick. actually sea sickness did not occur even once so I was very pleased. The process of checking in at the port went smoothly but we were perturbed that we could not bring on board the travel iron we had purchased at edinburgh aiport that morning and popped in our hand luggage. We were ...

We flew from Manchester via Amsterdam to Rome Fiumicino on Fri, 24th Aug and arrived at 10:30 pm to stay overnight at the Hilton Rome Airport Hotel that is 'attached' to the airport. It is badly signposted so head for terminals 2 & 3 and up from the arrivals level and find the covered walkway near the car parks, and then follow what seems an endless tunnel to the hotel. However, the hotel was ...

First of all the ship is huge, spotless and provides lots to do for everyone, we enjoyed crazy golf, watching a movie shown on a screen above the pool whilst drinking cocktails, the gym is very well equipped and fairly quiet, whilst the boys enjoyed football, basketball and ping pong and the company of loads of teenagers from around the world. Cabins are a reasonable size although we did not ...

This was our third cruise with RCI. We sailed from Civitavechia on 4 August. RCI remains as good as anyone in some aspects of cruising such as embarkation/disembarkation. Professional off-ship entertainers [on two evenings] also keeps them above the cheaper cruise companies. Staff are all terrific as usual. Cabins are excellent - large [very large] comfortable beds and mattresses. Instant ...

We decided to take this cruise even though we knew it would be extremely hot in July. The attraction was the itinerary, which for some reason is offerred only a few times this year. We took the train from FCO to Civitaveccia. The first time we did that it was somewhat intimidating, but we have done it enough now that it is pretty routine. The last time we learned that if you change at ...

Age 50s

First time cruisers so this was all brand new for us. The first thing to say that despite all the following positive notes, our first impression of RCI wasn't without criticism. I found that their website was inadequate in many ways, one of which resulted in us having to finish the booking over the phone. There was also so much contrasting information on different pages e.g. one page said that we ...
