Welcome to Cruise-Chat, littledove!
I was in a Junior Suite on the Mariner last week - Cabin 1540 which is near the forward elevator on the port side. The JS
's have a nice size walk-in closet which is a big plus. The bathrooms a bigger, and there is a tub instead of a small shower stall. It's about half again the size of a regular balcony cabin. The balcony has two chairs and a round table, and a smaller lounge chair. We really enjoyed our cruise on the Mariner, too bad she won't be sailing the Mexican Riviera after January 9, 2011.
