What an amazing fast 3 Days the room the shows the food the views and especially the water and the happiest crew I have experienced. As happy as I was to be back cruising the Crew aboard the Mariner of the Seas were exceptional and don't get me wrong everyone was above avg in speaking and smiling and helpful... it was really perfect. But a few Stand Outs were my main dining waitresses Vernadith and Ayu who created such a personal experience that was so caring and attentive it was hard the last day and will ask for them in the future... two amazing women! Also my Stateroom attendant Anant wow solved my 1st night hard bed issue. Who knew the bed could become magically soft absolutely a vacation saver... He had ice 2x a day awesome and just always had a solution to my questions and a genuine smile! And then Marlon who kept surprising me by remembering my name and pleasant no pressure beverage person. He was my hero after I lost my fitbit near pool area and he found it.. just a great guy doing an exceptional job and making you feel you are the only person on the ship. Thanks again to Royal for making my Happy Place being the best I remember. I am so thrilled to be back cruising. Yes the passengers were around a 1000 and the crew was around 1100 and the safe and cleanliness and safe distance practices above average just best trip .. so many good things and can't wait to be back soon!

i am so excited to tell you about the life-changing vacation i just retruned home from. Everything about my first cruise with Royal Caribbean was an absolute dream. Everything from the themed bars, art, activities, and the friendliest team members made this trip the best!! I have already booked another cruise on this same boat next year. +Sonya, our housekeeper, was so incredibly sweet and I miss her already!!! +Emannuel, James, and their staff took amazing care of my girlfriends and I at the Captain's Table every night! the food was incredible!! +Winnie at the wifi desk had to help me probably 5x in 2 days and she was a sweetheart about it!!! +Last but not least, I have to mention Caleb. Caleb is singlehandedly the brightest gem of this entire boat. He made the best drinks of my life, has the coolest dance moves and also the best personality in anyone I have ever met. He was so incredibly sweet and waited on my large group of 8-12 ladies like we were queens-and we adored that!!! He and Roel were such a treat together I went to the piano bar the first night of the cruise and refused to go anywhere else every other night of the trip. Thank you, Caleb for making my ENTIRE vacation and I will definitely be coming back to see you soon!!! <3

This was my third Royal Caribbean cruise. I Thoroughly enjoyed seeing Scandianvia and St. Petersburg for the first time. Colder than I expected for August. The Mariner crew were great and the food was very good. I never went to any of the premium restaurants, but the meals in the dining room were first class. The entertainment was very good. A little quiet at night; ended up spending too much time in the casino. ...due to that, I paid more than I should have for this cruise.

Over all cruise was good but we asked for cabins to be in same areas due to multiple families members needed 3 separate cabins and were placed all over the place on deferent floors and they offered no corrective solutions
