We have booked a Category D2 balcony on a 9/11 Mariner of the Seas cruise. Does anyone have feedback on amount of closet space and storage space in those cabins? Also, are there plenty of hangers or should we bring extras? Any other suggestions on helpful things to bring for the room?

What are the least expensive longterm parking options at Port Canaveral? We are in Jacksonville and I am also going to check with RCL to see if they have a bus from there to Port Canaveral (I saw this mentioned somewhere tonight on a post). Has anyone heard anything about that? Thank you.

Hi Lacey,
First, let me say the Mariner is an absolutely fantastic ship and you are going to have a great time. Category D2 cabins are a comfortable 202 sq. feet and the closet/storage space is more than sufficient. There is both full length and half closets for hanging items and a number of deep shelves for storage. There should be plenty of hangers in the closet - but no need to bring your own, if you need more - just ask your cabin steward and they will be delivered promptly. You might want to read Tom's review of the Mariner on our parent site CruiseReviews.com. With lots of details and pictures you should get a real feel for the ship. Here is the link:

As for Port Canaveral. Cruise Connection is a bus that offers transportation to and from Jacksonville. If you decide to drive there is parking at the port for $10 a day. Another option is to drive down a day early and stay at one of the reasonably priced hotels overnight that offer free parking during the cruise.

Hope this helps -
Nancy

What an extensive and thorough review by Tom on the Mariner! Thank you for pointing that out, and for your comments on the cabin space. I'll check out the Cruise Connection for a ride over to Port Canaveral.

Hi LaceyS , We also sail on The Mariner on 9-11 ! We are staying at The Raddison the night before and they let you park there for free and provide a bus to the pier . It's getting very near now I hope the weather is good for us all .

Hey Chevy,

The Radison is an excellent choice. You can see the ship from the hotel. Very close to the port. We were just there and left on the SOS in June. Stayed @ the La Quinta in Cocoa Beach. (10 minute drive to the port) Very nice as well. Had a great time. Good luck.
