Spent a week on Mariner. Upselling began the minute I got on with pressure to buy drinks package, tours, internet, cheap clothes and jewellery. The main 'atrium' is a poor excuse for up selling of just about anything except anything of ... Read more

The Ship We thought that Royal Caribbean was supposed to be a step up from Carnival. While the food was better we preferred Carnival. Pros: Embarkation was a dream! I’ve never had such an easy time boarding a cruise. ... Read more

PROS: Windjammer had the most amazing range of meals, only went to the Main Restaurant once, much more selection in Windjammer evidenced by the difficulty finding a table. Loved the pub and Promenade café, spent many hours in ... Read more

In fairness, I should say that this is the first time we've been on a cruise and I don't think cruising is for us. Having said that, this was pretty terrible by any standards. On the whole the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient: ... Read more

Mariner of the Seas is just too big for us, too many people, pushing and shoving at times to get to the buffet, even dining room had problems with mixed orders and warm food. Was it new staff perhaps still being trained? Always seemed ... Read more

Our first journey to this part of the world will not be the most memorable from the cruise itinerary perspective. Too short visit to the classic City of Hong Kong and an absolute waste of time visiting Nah Trang in Vietnam. To arrive in ... Read more

Having heard good reviews of RC, my husband and I decided to go on board. No regrets. The crew and staff are very attentive to our needs and exude warmth and professionalism. We only wanted to be on the liner so we skipped exploring ... Read more

We are a young family that went on our 2nd cruise for some much needed RnR during the school holidays. Initially, we were a little worried about the cruise being a little too Asian themed, having read the reviews here, but we managed to ... Read more

The ship was great and overall had an okay time. Embarkment was smooth and relatively effortless. The Cafe Promenade was great (the pizza I heard was amazing) for late night snacks. Our cabin was on the 7th deck - had a balcony. ... Read more

After reading the reviews, and even though this was cruise #55 for me, I was still a bit nervous as it was my first Asia departure on a non-charter. I was taking a friend for their first cruise, so was hoping for the best. Overall, I was ... Read more

The last time I cruised with Legend of the Seas in 2013 was very positive, that we decided to embark on a longer cruise in a balcony cabin for a better experience. The 5N cruise included a half day at Penang, and full days at Langkawi and ... Read more
