Cruising 2007 on Mariner of the Seas

Sail Date: May 20, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Mariner of the Seas is on of the greatest ships of all. It can accommodate 3500 guests and many staff personnel. Everything on this ship was spotless. We could tell that the staff cared how the ship looked and found them painting, sanding, window-washing and just about everything that involves keeping this ship perfect. The food was phenomenal and presented beautiflly. There was plenty of things to do on board as well as at ports of call. Several different bars with different themes to suite everyone's taste with live music, great shows in the theater that you never want to miss and want to see again and again, demonstrations of all kinds and even an opportunity to learn something new like play the steel drums! There was even an ice skating rink on this ship! Wow!
The staff are all so nice and friendly -- smiles galore! The dinning rooms are just breath-taking with the best wait-staff in the world. We will definitely be booking again on this ship in the very near future.

Pros: Our balcony room was the best! Lots of room and storage places for everything!

Cons: The coffee on the ship is very strong and not to our liking and that's the only thing I can think of.

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Cozumel, Mexico
We toured the city here as well to get a feel for what we want to do next time. There are many things to do at this port as well. We did go to the Myan Ruins and saw a huge Iguana running along the path. The foilage is just beautiful.
Don't Miss: anything.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
This was my husband's favorite port. It was relaxing with warm, crystal clear beaches. The staff on shore made sure you had your lounge chair before your toes hit the sand! There were picnic areas and great food that the ship supplied. Locals entertained us the entire time. If you are looking for bargains to buy this is the port. You can "name your price" on anything in the market area where the locals are very appreciative.
Don't Miss: Don't miss swimming and taking it easy at this port, the rest of the trip is going to be busier.
George Town, Grand Cayman
We did the City and Island tour by Van. Our driver stopped anywhere we wanted to get out. We visited the Turtle Farm which was really nice and even held a huge turtle for a photo moment! There are so many things to do here it was difficult to choose and next time we will be doing other things like swim with the stingrays and parasailing. Shopping was the best and don't forget your on ship coupons or what you need to say to get the best prices available. You should also remember to only shop at the approved stores recommended by RCI.

Ocho Rios, Jamaica
WOW, Dunn River Falls is really somthing to see but not for the frail. You need to be able to climb rocks with cascading water and keep your balance. Remember to bring your water shoes if you have them or buy them on the ship or you can even rent them. And don't forget that waterproof camera, you will need one for sure on this excursion.
Don't Miss: Dunn River Falls and the Gardens.
