We loved the Mariner of the Seas. She was abeautiful Ship. The weather could have been better, but one cannot control that. For the price that we pay, I feel having to pay extra for soda is unreasonable. We quickly caught on tht when they offer you a "something special", it is followed by a signature on your Credit card.
They could skip Ochas Rios Jamaica completely, no need to go there... spend an extra day at Grand Caymen instead or got to Labedee for 2 days.
I explored the whole ship for a week and tried to do at least eveythin once, I ran out of time. SOO many things to do. Also it would be better if they had more activities for the 18-21 year olds.
Would love to go again!!!

Pros: Beautiful Ship

Cons: too many extras, everything was an extra fee

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Eat in the dining room as much as possible..

DO stingray city..... Don't have to go with Royal.. there are alot of private travel excursions that would be alot cheaper, they will get you back to the ship on time. we went with Native way. very good would do it again
Don't Miss: coral gardens and stingray city
Cozumel, Mexico
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
