MARINER OF THE SEAS SHIP REVIEW

I’m going to leave an overall review for the ship though. It is older.

And it does need work. We found mold in between the slider to our balcony meaning a seal is broken.

Every exterior window or glass guard on the rails was filthy- hard to get pictures. The interior windows were great!

My slider was fogged so we couldn’t see out the glass that actually slides.

There was vomit splatter on the door and wall so it appears. I didn’t get close enough to investigate

There are clotheslines in the shower! Never noticed before

The entertainment was great from what I saw

I missed the theater and ice rink.

My son didn’t want to do slides or flow rider or the trampoline thing.
So I wonder if the newer ships are worth the cost for us. We don’t use half of what’s available.

We spend most of our time at the pool deck, eating, casino, and the arcade

My son is 9 1/2 and loves it!

He doesn’t like salt water pools but he deals with it

He spent more time in the hot tubs watching the big screen on pool deck.

It had a hair dryer in the drawer

We had an ocean view balcony

Room 8256

Mariner of the seas.

Tons of food options

I don’t think I’ll ever buy extra dining packages

There was tons of FREE water, lemonade, iced tea, mango juice, and strawberry kiwi juice (all from concentrate.) in the windjammer.
And water and cups available at the bars for free. You can take food from windjammer to your room or anywhere really.

Most of the food in MDR is also available in the windjammer.

We actually skipped it every night. Wasn’t impressed with the menu.

Room service is promenade and windjammer foods.

Continental breakfast is good

But the American breakfast has a delivery charge for the room each time you order and it comes cold or like I said –
the eggs were from windjammer.

The slots weren’t hitting super big as often as you’d wish.

But black Jack and craps definitely paid well!

There’s tax and duty free on alcohol and cigarettes in the market on the promenade .

I wish Starbucks was included as it’s convenient but you can get GREAT coffee and cappuccino and espresso stuff at the bars.  Included in refreshment or deluxe beverage packages.

Soda package is easy. Machines filled with every soda and Powerade and hi c  and even water . Super cheap … 

There’s free milk in windjammer too…

I’ve never looked at things to do on the boat until this trip – Definitely check the calendar in your app often until it shows everything. 

Reserve what you can. 

Add to your calendar and the app reminds you 30 minutes before the things you put in there even without a reservation.

We got stuck waiting to get off the boat as KEY HOLDERS due to a back up in the birth certificate line.  

I recommend passports 

We will be using them going forward. Way smoother process!

The key lunch and breakfast are super convenient but not necessary. Being a key holder you get those things in the MDR. 

But the windjammer is open when you get on board. The promenade is open on the way out. Maybe windjammer too. I didn’t check

Overall we had an excellent time. Worth it all. Didn’t do anything extra. And weren’t bored one bit. 


The ship needs an exterior cleaning and maybe some touch ups in the rooms. Mold in slider is gross. And not wiping walls and doors is gross in the bathroom. 


The service was great. Didn’t feel crowded on the sea day. 


That was my second time doing that boat and cruise.
