Hello everyone!
I have a question regarding the food aboard mariner of the seas. I went on this cruise about 2 years ago and the food was fantastic! I'm going on it again in a couple of months and I am wondering if anyone has been on this ship recently and can tell me about the food!? I would love to know your opinion about the food at dinner and the buffet at the windjammer cafe, is it still great?? I certainly hope so!!!

Why wouldn't it still be great? I've been on over 40 Royal Caribbean ships and have yet to complain about the food quality. Some people might be more fastidious when it comes to food—even those that are should be pleased with the Mariner' food.

The reason I was concerned was because I went on the sovereign of the seas in April and the food was horrible, honestly, so i'm just kinda worried that's all. I've looked on cruise-critic.com and it seems like a lot of people are saying the food quality has declined. Maybe some people are just really pessimistic and trying to scare us off!! hehe. I just enjoy the food on the big ships and I hope it hasn't changed, food is such a big part of the cruise experience!

Some of the selection is not what is used to be--fuel costs and all, but I never have had anything to complain about on RCCL. When looking on cruise critic keep in mind that a. When people have an ax to grind they are more likely to spread the word than when things are lovely, and b. Many cruises cost a lot more than they did a few years ago and people's expectations of what they will get for that money is higher. In other words, if you are going to pay for the cruise with your right eye it had better be perfect. Nothing is perfect, but go expecting it to be lovely and you will find wonderful things to enjoy including the food.

I think the basic problem here is reading that other forum and believing what is posted, as opposed to getting the straight scoop here!

I'd like to thank the academy for this high honor. My award winning taste buds* will indeed be tasting the cuisine of the Sovereign Of The Seas this coming Friday. I promise a full review of the food sometime next week.

*taste buds honed in the Hudson Valley of NY, with perhaps the best experience anyone can have - that of lots of eating at real diners along the Taconic State Parkway and a mother who worked in those diners for many years.

We're going on Mariner again in a few days for our third cruise on her in a row-that's OUR opinion of the ship. We've never had a bad meal-Windjammer or the dining room fare have all been great. AND, don't forget Chopps! Wow is all I can saw for their food.
All I can say is that for my mid-central state's taste buds, the entire experience was a treat.
