a good time

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

We had a very nice time on our cruise. We especially liked the kids adventure ocean program they had. The food was not as good as I had expected but ok. We were a little disappointed with the two excursions we took. The submarine was not worth 100.00 a person. The pirate adventure was not very good either. They seemed to be just kind of winging it and only one person from the ship really interacted with the people. Wasnt worth the money. I wish we would have swam with sting rays instead

Pros: kids program, Labadee island

Cons: dinner seating requirements, extra charge for certain restaraunts

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
food wasnt bad but wasnt as good as I had hoped. The dinner seating assignments were too rigid. We were given late seating (830) with small children. Needless to say we never went to our dining room. I also didnt like that they had an extra 25.00 charge per person for the italian and steak restaurants. They did not have enough green vegetables to eat.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
The ice show was fabulous and the singer/entertainer that sang the 50's and 60's music was great
Children's Programs
The kids had a blast at the adventure ocean program. Everyone was great and we really werte able to enjoy the cruise with some time alone from the kids.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Too many people badgering you to buys things
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
It was a really nice island and we especially liked how they catored food from the ship for everyone to eat. We all had a really relaxing time there.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Everything was very expensive
Cozumel, Mexico
