Ship: Seven Seas Mariner
Sailing Date: n/a
To put is simply I have sailed all the premium lines and Radisson comes out number one. The grand age of ship travel of a bygone era is alive and well here but with modern touches.
Only 700 happy passengers fill her cabins all of which have large balconies. The standard suite is 20% larger than other luxury ships and cost far less. The value is thus outstanding in every respect room, atmosphere, food, service and attitude.
The ship caters to experienced travelers over 40 who know how to enjoy life and can entertain themselves. Party types, kids and glitz seekers are absent and the passengers all mingle in a very content fashion with no pomp and pretension. Your fellow passengers will be on the ship for the pleasure of ocean travel not to shop or party.
On too many ships there are those who want to eat their fare, and drink themselves in to a stupor; you will notice with joy their absence
This quality holds
for the staff as well who are polished poised and friendly to a fault. I feel
that this type of service by far out does Crystal's snob ice people.
I spent 28 days on the Mariner and to be honest, could not find anything to criticize, other than I had to get off.
If your comfortable with yourself and enjoy others with the same attitude then you will love this ship as I do.
There is no way I can go back to any other after my
Radisson experience...it is that good
