Mariner of the Seas Review


Pros and Cons

Pros: Royal Promenade may elicit the biggest "Wow!" on board when a parade is center stage; professional ice-skating performances are staged twice during each cruise; equipment to participate in sports activities is provided at no additional charge.

Cons: with the exception of the gym and some fitness classes, nearly everything else on board carries a price tag; although there is no charge to attend, you must get tickets for the ice-skating shows; smokers may be frustrated to find that smoking is prohibited in cabins and in most indoor areas.
