  3. Mariner of the Seas
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, engaging, but at times what felt to be a bit too scripted. The rooms were clean, and the balcony, side offered a table and chair that you could sit on the water and enjoy life passing you by. The Cococay beach barbeque for thousands of people was well planned out, the food was great, it was a perfect day, lots of beach chairs to go around with the same view no matter where you sit. Going into Nassau the shopping was horrible with vendors being so aggressive to get you into the store, it was hard to enjoy the experience of just wandering around. You could not step into the store without a person in your face. The salespeople in Trescore Rare used very aggressive tag team selling, which was really uncomfortable from a buying perspective. Be weary of those vendors peddling free samples and grabbing your hand to drag you into the store!
