7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)

Ship: Mariner of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)

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.

Beautiful ship, great activities for all of us to enjoy. Miniature golf, ice skating, rock climbing, it was like a floating city

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

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
3 out of 5
Too much time in transportation getting to Tulum, which is worth seeing. I would have opted for something less time consuming
3 out of 5
We took an excursion through the town and to Dunn's River Falls. My kids loves climbing the falls
Don't Miss: the falls

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!
