I chose this cruise because it fit perfectly within my spring break. We’ve never done only a four day cruise so that was new to us. Four days including embankment day. Three ports, no sea days. Grand Bahamas/Freeport, Coco Cay, Nassau. Super reasonably priced. Definitely got more than my money’s worth. They added grand Bahamas the day before sailing, so the ship had activities as if it were a sea ...

I was on the Mariner for a spring break cruise 4-19-2022. It was our first cruise since 2019 having cruised 14 times previously on NCL, Carnival and Royal Caribbean. This was our second cruise from Port Canaveral. We drove to the port and parked there which was extremely easy and cost $85 for the 4 days. I will say one of the benefits of what we learned in COVID is the embarkation process. It was ...

My experience was very positive. The crew is wonderful, and we felt very safe even with covid scares the way they are now. Go on your cruise! don't let covid scare you! The ship is very clean, staff great and not crowded at all. Loved cocoa cay. We only had to wear our mask when we were inside. Not offensive. We could take it off when at the table to eat. You also don't have to wear it while ...

Took a pleasant cruise on Mariner of the Seas with my youngest daughter. Drove down from southwest Georgia to Port Canaveral on January 5. Stayed overnight at Country Inn and Suites (they had a special going on). For an extra $70 you can park there for the duration of your cruise and a shuttle to and from the cruise terminal is included. Embarkation was easy, even with dear daughter ...

Ship has a great layout. Very nice promanade area with shops, bars, eateries. Enjoyable entertainment of all varieties, including stage performances and ice skating show. Tremendous water slides, surf rider, rock climbing, laser tag, trampoline, etc. for kids and adults. Large TV screen by the pool for late night movies and nonstop viewing during the day. Pool side steel drum band. Excursion ...

As a Canadian, I was excited to escape from the ice globe and sail off to sun and sand. I must say for my first cruise it was awesome! Great food, excellent service from anyone who passed by, spoke to or dealt with on the ship. The nightly shows were great, packed with comedy, ice shows, feats of skilled acrobats, and more. The cruise director Asana was friendly, seriously funny, ...

So my wife and I decided to take a 7 day cruise to Belize, Roatan and Cozumel for a delayed honeymoon for the summer of 2014 (I can't recall the exact date but it was before June of last year). I heard Royal Caribbean was a more upscale cruise line as compared to Carnival so we went with the Mariner with the Seas. It was recently renovated and it showed. Arrival and embarkation was a breeze. Our ...

We drove down from West, Texas on Saturday and stayed at the Super 8 in Kemah and would not recommend that hotel at all. While we were out for dinner someone came into our room and used our bathroom and the front desk would do nothing about it also our dead bolt would not work. We had to stack our suitcases in front of the door just for a little protection, but enough about that. We arrived at ...

Well, we entered the Port of Galveston on Sunday, April 7, 2013 to an episode of what can only be defined as CHAOS. Disorganized, people scrambling, long lines, no sense of any real organization (foot traffic or vehicle traffic) other than a lot of people barking orders and no one really knowing what the heck was going on. Our luggage was taken quickly, but as we were waiting in what seemed like ...

We just returned from our Royal Caribbean cruise on Mariner of the Seas. It is our understanding that Mariner will be leaving Galveston and going to Asia in two weeks and Navigator will be replacing it in Galveston. This is going to be a good change, and there are so many things that are alike on both ships, that there will still be the same care and concern for its passengers. We drove in ...
