I have now taken two Royal Carribean Cruises, and I don't know how other cruise lines work, but I cannot see myself taking any other cruise line in the future. The Mariner itself was a great ship with a wide variety of activities for all ages. Every evening you receive a "Cruise Compass" which is basically a schedule of all of the activities and events that are going on the next day. This helps you plan your day. The nice thing was that even though there were a lot of children on board their activities were kept completely separate from the adults. The crew on board were extremely friendly and helpful with any problems that occurred. And did I mention the food?! Food 24 hours a day and the dinners were spectacular. Its like eating at a 5 star restaurant every night. Then there are shows after dinner with everything from dance troops to concerts to comedians. Royal Carribean really is the life.

Pros: Full service, great meals, waited on hand and foot, room service was wondeful, extremely friendly staff and crew

Cons: alcohol costs extra!!!

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
A day at the beach. Relaxing, but beware the flea market (most pushy salesman ever)
Cozumel, Mexico
The food at this port is great. I recommend Pancho's Backyard for your lunch. It is obviously an old city and is interesting to walk around and just take a stroll.
Don't Miss: The snorkeling here is great. Good variety of fish and corral. Also, don't miss out on an authentic Mexican food experience.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Grand Cayman is a very industrialized island, not nearly as pretty as Jamaica. Shopping is expensive and so is the food.
Don't Miss: Stingray City makes up for the somewhat "ugly" island, go even if you are scared. You will not regret it

Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Jamaica is a beautiful place with friendly people and glorious sights. Great discounts on jewelry and watches and generally cheap souvenirs.
Don't Miss: Dunn's River Falls is spectacular
