Fantastic Voyage

Sail Date: July 16, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Mariner of the Seas is a class ship.

Pros: The entertainment was tops, with many laughs.

Cons: Dinner wine service was not as prompt as on other ships.

Cabin / Stateroom
Interior stateroom was tight, but last minute bookings get you the leftovers. Still a good deal for the price paid.
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Ship Quality
The nicest ship sailed so far, with a wide array of places to hang out and things to do at sea.
Food and Dining
The cruise director and staff on Mariner were the best so far of 3 cruises my family has taken. A whole lot of fun to be around.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Georgetown is a nice quaint little beach town, good for a stroll and small purchases. Although I didn't go on any excursions, Cayman has always been a place to do so.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Departure from the ship, if walking, is through a fenced pathway, indicating potential dangers in my mind. Many local hustlers and drug dealers. Very impoverished; an eye opener for the well-to-do.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Great place! Wonderful ambiance.
Don't Miss: The native culture and bazaar on the island, even if you aren't shopping.
