Aaaaaah! Peace at last!

Sail Date: June 01, 2008

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

i really needed this vacation! there were only a couple of things that ticked me off, but i thought they were big. after giving the purser a substantial amount of cash money (more than i could have reasonably spent on board) i was refused a couple of hundred dollars to spend off ship. i was not informed of this policy, and never experienced it before on any other of my 13 cruises.

Pros: the interior cabin overlooking the "mall" was wonderful. if you're traveling with kids, get one of these. it gives them something other than water to look at while you're busy. i was surprised that it really wasn't noisy, but for occasional music for short periods.

Cons: i felt nickled and dimed. there was a $2.24 charge for soda in the dining room, and the food just wasn't all that good. i really hated having the same breakfast and lunch menu for an entire week. that was boring! and watch out for additional charges by the kids' club!

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? No.

it's confirmed! i really hate Jamaica. i got propositioned for pot, sex and everything else you can think of. i got back on board after only an hour and a half. and it's really dirty!
