MARINER OF THE SEAS
Mariner's main dining room is smply referred to as the "Dining Room". At one time, each of the three levels of the main dining room had a name relting to Broadway musicals of the first half of the 20th century. Consequently, the decor of the room has references to music and dancing such as drawings of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and a statue of a couple dancing.
The Dining Room is a magnificent room. Its central area soars up through three decks and is crowned by a great chandelier. It is the classic picture of a cruise ship dining room.
The Dining Room is open for breakfast, lunch (sea days) and dinner.
For breakfast, the portion of the restaurant that is on Deck 3 offers both a buffet and ala carte service. Both portions are open seating. There is also a section for guests who are Diamond level and above in Royal Caribbean's Crown and Anchor loyalty program.
Lunch is also open seating.
At dinner, the portions of the restaurant on Decks 4 and 5 follow the traditional system with each passenger assigned to a specific table at either the main seating or the late seating.
The portion on Deck 3 follows a flexible dining system. Each guest who opts for this system can dine there any time the restaurant is open. There is no specific table assignment so a guest may not have the same waiters or table companions throughout the cruise.
