Cool Top 5 and Bottom 5 - Please add yours

Here are the top 5 things I enjoyed about my recent cruise vacation aboard the Mariner, and the bottom 5 things that I didn't like so much. Please let me hear what yours are, from your most recent cruise.

From the Mariner of The Sea's 80th sailing, May 22 2005

My Top 5

1. Chops - Makes me lick my chops!!
2. Paradise Beach at Cozumel
3. Beatlemania Live - great family entertainment
4. Beautiful ship, beautiful public areas.
5 Swimming with the Stingrays in Grand Cayman

(Honorable Mention: Sushi in Jade!!)

My Bottom 5

1. Smokers on both balconies on either side of us! This may have ruined me on ever paying extra to have a balcony again.
2. Show put on by RCCL singers and dancers, Pure Energy (Pure Boredom)
3. Pool Chair Hogs. I can see their towels, but I can't see them!
4. Disembarking (sad because I'm leaving, bored because I had to sit and wait)
5. Pushy pushy sales people in both Labadee & Jamaica. (My advice, wait for Cozumel & Grand Cayman to shop).

(Dishonorable Mention: No clocks, alarm or otherwise, in the staterooms)


Well, there you have it. Please note that I was careful to say that these are MY top and bottom 5. Actual mileage may vary.

Let's hear yours.

My top 5 from my Voyager cruise:
1. Never a moment of boredom, more to do than we had time for.
2. Olsen Brothers - fantastic show
3. Inline skating with my 11 year old - almost kept up with him
4. Cruise was to Canada (Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) from New York. Sailed through the Georges Banks fishing grounds where my dad, a commercial fisherman, spent most of his life. He passed away 10 years ago. I felt totally at peace as I sat on my balcony during this part of the cruise and had a "conversation" with my Dad. He was there with me in spirit and oh how he loved to be on the sea.
5. This was the cruise that totally addicted me to cruising. Maybe this should be on my bottom 10 as it has cost me a lot of money since. :-)

Bottom 5:
1. The ship was too cold most of the time. Should have brought more sweaters.
2. Didn't win at bingo.
3. Didn't win in the casino.
4. Only one of my grown twin sons could join us so felt like we were missing something.
5. Trip too short, it was only a 5 day.

Most recent for us was the Radiance back in November.

Top 5 -

1. Having JS 1100 as our room for the week.
2. The ship was beautiful. It's now our favorite RCI ship.
3. The food was very good, and we had wonderful tablemates.
4. We missed Coco Cay and got 4 days at sea instead of 3!
5. Beautiful weather on our sea days.

Bottom 5 -

1. Having to leave JS 1100. I could live there.
2. I don't think we'll find a ship that will top the Radiance.
3. Wish I had room for that extra desert and that our tablemates were also our neighbors back home.
4. Wish we could have missed all our ports and just stayed at sea.
5. It rained in St. Thomas and St. Martin.

From my last cruise on Brilliance:

Top 5:
Had GREAT tablemates at dinner!
The ship was beautiful.
We had nice weather for the whole 10 days.
Love the trivia games at night
Had quiet people in cabins next to us!

Bottom 5:
Disembarkation was a mess
Was disappointed in some of the nightly shows
Cabin steward was very inattentive
Too many loud & unruly kids running up & down hallways
kids pushing all buttons in elevators

Great post.

From the Adventure of The Seas sailing, April 03 2005

My Top 5

1. St. John, trunk Bay! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place!
2. Beautiful ship, beautiful public areas.
3. Great food, wonderful wait staff.
4. Great Weather, not too hot, just perfect!
5. Great CC members I met while onboard

My Bottom 5

1. Almost dying in Curacao (not the ship's fault, I know, but I did not enjoy this part)
2. Bad luck in ports (getting to the ship, flat tires, and bad beach advice)
3. The two stateroom attendants didn't equal one good attendant! Maybe they should've had help. (shower didn't get cleaned or bleached)
4. Sloshing sound coming from cabin was really annoying on the 6th day!


Neutral Mention (just an observation): There were many PR natives onboard with us. When in a lounge the MC would ask where everyone was from. When PR came up 1/2 of the lounge cheered. So I'm guessing these were the PR residents we kept seeing. This is probably why some of the shows were in Spanish to accomodate such a large percentage of the pax.
That's all fine and great. There were, however a few bad apples in this bunch. They were REALLY rude, loud, pushy and bossy. Thankfully it was a big ship, and there were other places we could go.

THAT is a great idea! I sure hope they do this soon. It *might* cut down on the chair hog issue.

Default Our Mariner Top/Bottom 5

Our top 5

1. Portifino's and Chops, so worth the extra $$
2. A lovely table for two in dining room with a bottle of wine
3. Floating on a beach mat, fruity drinks, no worries on Paradise beach
4. Getting woke up by Room Service to deliver my AM coffee each day.
5. Quest and Love and Marriage game. Loved the laughter

need one more...

6. It was wonderful to meet and talk with so many other friendly nice people. On vacation work doesnt interfere. No stress of everyday life. Memories.

Our bottom 5

1. Did not win bingo any of the times I played
2. Seeing people not washing their hands in restroom.
3. Packing to leave...
4. Waiting to leave...
5. Acutually having to leave!
