Great vamily cruise

Sail Date: May 20, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

The Ship and crew the service were incredible. We had a great time, words can't describe the experience, and this is my 9th cruise (3rd w/RCI). The nightly shows were as good as Vega's. The departure was as smooth as i have ever seen. One thing i strongly recomend is to pay the $5 p/bag pre-checking option. You get boarding passes and miss out on the airport bag hassle. This is a must in my opinion!!!

Pros: My children's smiles

Cons: cabin...too small

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
I/we were on a outside cabin for four (8,6yrs) the children were too young for their own cabin, i was hoping for a bit bigger cabin. Bunk beds above the queen, made it hard to get out in the middle of night without bumping your head, the kids loved the bunks.
Ship Quality
The Ship, crew and service was incredible.
Food and Dining
Wait staff, food, and variety were suppereb.
Not something one would do on a nightly vasis on a tipical island, but can't imagine passing out the great experience.
Service and Staff
Extremely friendly, helpful and polite, unlike some other cruise line i've been in.
Loved the idea that there was something new and exiting waiting for us every night with out the extra expense. My children were the best behave at the shows, that's how much they love it.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Hated the hassle, people were friendly but overpowering and rude if you didn't buy from them. would probably stay in the ship next time around.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Beautiful Island, people were not about to get you as the other island, it made it easier to go about your business.
Don't Miss: shallow green waters....
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
The best island by far, no hassle, or dishing out extra money for cab fairs, or food. Loved the way the entire ship comes to shore and maintain the same quality the ship has to offer on land.
Don't Miss: everything was just superb!! Natives were very pushy!
Cozumel, Mexico
Next to Labadee this was by far the best island. The natives were nice not pushy like jamaica or labadee.The locals were humble and polite. loved their beaches.
Don't Miss: The "Laguna" where one can snorkle, was supperb!!
