Quality family time cruise

Sail Date: December 23, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The first 3 nights were very rough however the sea was calm. Kids were sick and did not eat dinner 2 nights. Other ships travelling at the same time to the same ports did not experience rough sea (possible stabilizer issues?) The food was abundant however not as good as Celebrity Line. Staterooms were much smaller that we thought and did not accomodate luggage for 4. With all that said, we still had a great time the last 4 days of the cruise. The staff is fantastic and try hard. The shows were also fabulous.

Pros: Plenty to do and not to do if you choose

Cons: staterooms accomadate 4 but not comfortable, food is excessive but not exquisite

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Nice island to start with. Excessive charge by Royal Carribean to use their own blowup water activities
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
If you like beach party atmosphere take a cab straight from boat to French beach Orient Beach. Water Activities and inexpensive food and drinks. DO not take ferry at dock unless you just want the experience. You can take a cab to shop.

Beaches are beautiful and shopping was great
Don't Miss: Take ferry to St. Johns for Trunk Bay!
