The ship was very clean and well decorated. The staff was continuously giving out sanitation wipes to all the guests to ensure cleanliness. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!

Pros: The service

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
There was a good selection each night. The quality was OK. The service was excellent.
Service and Staff
The service was fantastic on this ship.
Ship Quality
Elevators were were a bit slow. The ship overall though was easy to get around
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an Owner's Suite. It was spacious and well maintained. Our cabin was close to dining and kid's activities which was great.
Entertainment
We were a little dissapointed with the times available for the ice skating and inline skating arenas. The rock climbing wall also had limited times available to enjoy.
Children's Programs
The staff was excellent. The kids club however should not close during the day @ all. The mid day closings made it difficult to schedule spa appointments.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
The beach and kids park was nice. The pushy sales people for trinkets was over the top
George Town, Grand Cayman
We went snorkeling with the Sting Rays. AWESOME!!!
Don't Miss: Sting Ray City
Cozumel, Mexico
This port was difficult to get out of. It was a small shopping area which was average.
Don't Miss: Kids got their hair braided.... They loved it.

Dunns River Falls is a must see!!! The natives however were about as pushy as you can get. One went as far as giving my kids a wooden turtle and said to my 8 yr. old it was free. Then turned to me and insited I give him $20.00. To make a long story short, he didn't get the $20.00.... This made the trip to the falls something to talk about other than the falls.
