Sail Date: Jun 2022

Our trip went to Labadee, San Juan, St. Maarten, St. Croix and Perfect Day. Embarkation was very easy and practically walked onto the ship when we got there. Our first stop was to get our safety briefing which has been modified to watch a video (do it before you get on the ship) and you were ready to cruise. Windjammer Cafe was well laid out with lots of options. It did get pretty crowded at peak times, but lines seemed to flow pretty good. Very easy to get a lounge chair at the pool, even on the sea days, which was nice! Out islands Labadee and Perfect Cay are beautiful and well maintained. We did the Sip & Paint at Labadee where we painted either a boat (A Tap Tap) or a pot that were made by the Haitians.

It was a great souvenir and we got a little history, as well as a nice rum drink. The Elton John Tribute show by Jeffrey Allen was great! Ventriloquist was terrible and we walked out (too many political jokes and we were trying to get away from everything on vacation). Ice Show was Under the Big Top and was very colorful and entertaining. Dining Staff was wonderful with Javant and Jan (Main Dining 5:30)! Jan was waiting for us with our drinks every night and Javant was so efficient and nothing was ever a problem. (sometimes we can be high maintenance, which we own, but he didn't seem to mind) We had so much fun, we booked another cruise on the Mariner in October.

Cabin Review

Balcony Cabin . Room Steward Su was the absolute best! From the spectacular towel animals, ice in the room, fresh towels, to the little extras such as wrapping the phone charger to make the room look nice, Su was spot on! Loved the location as it was close to the dining room and Boleros!
