Me and my wife enjoyed the cruise for the most part. We brought our 2 yr old daughter this time and there isn't very many programs setup for this age. The first day at sea was rough as we had 54mile an hour winds and rain. Labadee was nice but, Montego Bay was disgusting. The bus service was beyond poor and the ship did very little to correct ti. The people were rude, pushy and downright touching you the whole time. We missed Grand Caymen and were not compensated at all. The best day was Cozumel, the weather was nice and we had a great time. I had some kind of respiratory infection on the ship but it cleared up the next day we got back. We had a good time but, usually we have a great time. The Casino was very stingy and I think they should of offered to cancel the cruise because of all the itinerary changes. We are going to try Carnival next time but, we usually love RC.

Pros: People were freindly

Cons: Montego bay

Recommends Mariner of the Seas? Yes!

George Town, Grand Cayman
Showed up, could not tenure. No dock yet come on rich port spend some money.
Don't Miss: Turtle farm
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Food is always average, not much to do but relax.
Don't Miss: Shopping but, be ready to haggle.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Went to Montego bay, stay on the ship scary.
Don't Miss: Do not get off the ship
Cozumel, Mexico
Crazy taxis, but beautiful beaches and snorkling.
Don't Miss: everything
