A Great Family Vacation

Sail Date: November 19, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

It was one of the best vacations we have ever had. Food, service, shows all excellent . Big disappointment not to be able to get to Cayman Islands, but weather is not always predictable. The trip to Tulum was very rough, we should have been given seasick pills an hour before departure to give them time to work. That was the only downside to an excellent vacation.

Pros: food, service, Beatlemania

Cons: The boat ride from the ship to get to the bus for Tulum. Very rough, kids seasick

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Service and Staff
Everyone was great, helpful. fun,
Scheduling conflict on one night when there was only one show, and we were second seating and first got out late, so we missed it
Children's Programs
Lots to do, age appropriate, everyone had a great time
Ship Quality
Beautiful ship, great activities for all of us to enjoy. Miniature golf, ice skating, rock climbing, it was like a floating city
Food and Dining
Great variety, wonderful staff, Bentu and Tatiana were wonderful
Cabin / Stateroom
We couldn't have gotten a better attendant in Dexter. The towel animals were a big hit with the kids. We got a room upgrade and it was beautiful
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Nice sunny spot, the ship provided enough food and entertainment. The beach had a lot of huge rocks, so going into the water was rough
Cozumel, Mexico
Too much time in transportation getting to Tulum, which is worth seeing. I would have opted for something less time consuming
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
We took an excursion through the town and to Dunn's River Falls. My kids loves climbing the falls
Don't Miss: the falls
