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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

We traveled from Winnipeg Can through Minneapolis the day prior to sailing, which is essential due to travel disruptions at this time of year. We used rewards points to rent a mini-van from Avis and had to pay $ 45 for the insurance. The drive to Cocoa Beach is very easy on the Bee Line Highway for a toll of only $ 1.25. We use rewards points again and stayed at the Best Western Ocean Beach, ...

This was our 9th cruise, 5th with RCCL and 3rd time on the Mariner. Myself 47 and DH 47. We were also meeting up with friends who were driving in from Chicago and it would be their first cruise on RCCL. We flew in one day early via American Airlines from Chicago. Our flight left on time and was uneventful but full. Rented a car at the airport and headed to Cocoa Beach. We stayed at the Courtyard ...

We sailed 11/16/08 on the Mariner of the Seas. Our group consisted of 12 adults from mid twenties to mid fifties. We arrived by car after a 6-7 hour drive from South Carolina. Drop-off for luggage was quick and efficient, parking was a breeze. By noon we were on board and enjoying our first refreshing adult beverage, served by Hari in the Sky Bar poolside. Throughout the week we tried many of the ...

This is our fourth cruise (all with RCCL) and this is the largest ship so far we have sailed on. It is a beautiful ship and our first time in a balcony room and we loved it. We arrived a day early in Orlando on a SW flight out of LI. We stayed the night at the Radisson at the port which we found to be a perfect place to stay for cruisers (many people were there for the same reason). The next ...
