Best cruise ever!!

Sail Date: July 30, 2006

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Mariner of the Seas is one of the cleanest ships we have ever been on. This is our 7th cruise, first with RCCL. We are impressed. They really did an outstanding job in every aspect. The kid's program was unbelievable.

Pros: Service, food, kid's program, Portofino's

Cabin / Stateroom
We were in a D1 balcony room and found it to be a bit small for four. Probably would book a suite next time.
Ship Quality
In seven days we didn't get to see everything. Ice skating was fun and they even offer instructors if you need some help.....
Food and Dining
We dined in Portifino's 3 times while we were there. The main dining room was great, but we liked the intimacy that you get in Portofino's and the service is stellar.
Service and Staff
We never met so many happy people before.
We didn't make it to many shows, but the ones we went to were alot of fun. The ice show was great.
Children's Programs
The best of any cruise line we have sailed.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Great shopping!!
Don't Miss: Rum point beach
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Vendors are a bit pushy but we just avoided shopping here.
Don't Miss: Dunn's river falls
Cozumel, Mexico
The port is still being rebuilt from hurricane damage. Great shopping. Best beach we have ever visited.
Don't Miss: Passion Island.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
This is a great beach day stop. The BBQ was good and the slide was alot of fun for the kids.
Don't Miss: snorkeling over the airplane wreck offshore
