Just returned from a wonderful cruise onboard the Mariner! Every piece of carpeting was replaced in all cabins, hallways, stairs, every sigle room had new carpet our cruise director stated upon arrrival that we are the first guest to step on this new carpeting, we were in Horizon View 8104, and it appeared that the sofa had recently been re-covered as well as the chair, the carpet was so new that it was still pilling, I also beleive that the "wallpaper" in our room had been changed to a white on white pattern, Hermes, and L'occident (sp) as well as Regent products were onboard. No new location for the boutique and frankly do not see why, lots of people shopping on sea days. The pool was delightfully heated to a nice tempeture, but is salt water. The following was enjoyed by most guest, La Vida show and the Cirque show, as well as Ray Soliare! Guest Vladik pionist, the worst and I do mean the worst show was the Beatle's in the Horizon show lounge everybody, exited with "what a joke" the UK guest were the most upset, no drums, etc.
'If you have any question's let me know, we did have our CC meeting with canapes in the Observation lounge attended by the Hotel Manager.
Please forgive me of any misspelling due to fatigue after flying from Istanbul, Munich, San Franciso and then a 1.5 hour ride home
