Mariner rockin and rollin

Sail Date: May 2010
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
Mariner of the seas is a beautiful ship. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. We stayed in inside rooms on deck 6. The rooms were nothing fancy but had a great location to royal promenade.

embarkation- absolutely painless. very well organized. total process took less than 25 minutes.

food- yes it is not as good as the old days, but we enjoyed main dining room and windjammer. Some nights selections were definitely better than others.

ports of call- we enjoyed them all. many activities to choose from and always felt very safe.

Not to be missed: ice show, ice skating, love and marriage show, comedians were great, poolside activities. could be skipped: quest, singers and dancers,

We spent hours playing shuffle board. The five of us had a great time on deck four. Overall, the cruise ship is very clean. Maintenance is constantly working. Very impressive. The trip coming home from Mexico to San Pedro was very rough. Very difficult to More be outside on last sea day. Winds were 40-50 mph. Cruise Director Kieron did excellent job having many activities inside to keep everyone entertained. Less

Great location on deck six. easy access to elevators, stairs, royal promenade.

Port and Shore Excursions

We walked to Cabo Wabo and enjoyed seeing parts of the town. We then made the mistake of walking to Medano Beach. Too hot and too long. Medano Beach was beautiful. Had many drinks and bars along the ocean. Took water taxi back to tender area and had a few more drinks at

yes the downtown area left much to be desired, but we went to Stone Island for the day and had a blast. The sand on the beach is a mixture of sand and mud which makes walking very easy. We spent the day drinking dollar Coronas and enjoying the very peaceful and beautiful ocean.

Very clean and very beautiful. We did the touristy thing and spent some time at Senor Frogs. A taxi cab from port, Senor Frogs is geared more for resorts than cruise ships. We then walked for miles enjoying shops and bars along the oceanfront watching sand sculptures, artists and beautiful scenery.
