Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first crusie and will be the begining of many more to come. It was a wonderful experience. Mariner was like a beautiful city on the ocean. The room was very nice with a lot of storage area and great space with a nice size balcony. The ship aminities were state of the art. The theatre was the very best I have been to lately. There was so much to do and see on the ship that we did not want to get out on the ports.
The kid's program was very good and kept my nine year old son entertained while he made some friends. They even had a talent show for the kids.
The shows they had every night were first class musical, comedy or entertainemnt games. It was fabulious.
The food was great. it was available 24 hours and all you could eat, anything you wanted. The staff were very curtious, pleasant, helpful, kind and fun.
They had wonderful shopping on borad with a lot of great values. The art auctions were great and very educational, fun and entertaining.
All and all it was Fantastic. I highly recommend it to everyone. We are planning our next 2 crusies to Alaska and Transatlantic.

Pros: The ship and all the activities on board. It was fantastic.

Cons: The ports. They were not as we expected. A lot of them where herricane damaged, expensive and a torist trap.
