A good time!

Sail Date: March 09, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was very clean. We noticed this year RC implemented handing out antibacterial wipes to all prior to each meal. There was also staff in bathrooms almost all the time cleaning. Many things to do but boy, do you feel the size when you walk to and from your room!

Pros: Ship was great

Cons: Crowded breakfasts

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

Cozumel, Mexico
Love the people and even though parts are fairly "poor" there is such a sense of trying to make it better. Our 2nd time at Playa Mia-great place and facilities. Upgraded in the last 2 years. Good deal. Do it yourself and it's cheaper than thru the boat. Good shopping around the pier.
Don't Miss: Playa Mia
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Love the cruise line owned islands! Easy, convenient. Beautiful.
Don't Miss: Just relax on the beach!
George Town, Grand Cayman
Very weathy island. Expensive too. Took a cab to a secion of 7 mile beach. $7 US for 1 beer. One in our group took the bus down the street to get groceries and brought back a ton for $40. They nickel and dime with the chair/umbrellas.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Poor country. This was the only island we booked a ship excursion on due to everyone saying how unsafe it was. Went to Shaw Beach. It was ok, vendors sell drugs everywhere-watch out. Restrooms were nice but not many food/drink choices.
Don't Miss: Margaritaville
