Hi All , DH and I are planning an anniversary cruise (35yrs) we are looking at Mariner and Jewel. I'd love some feedback on these as we've not sailed either one. Any help would be very appreciated. Thank you.

We did a December sailing on the Mariner and it was great. It was by far the nicest ship we've been on. The public areas are beautiful, the room was beautiful (balcony room), the staff was great, the food was good. My only complaint at all is that there were way too many kids for us. Our cruise ended on Christmas eve so we thought nobody would bring their kids on a cruise just before Christmas. Boy were we wrong! Out of the 3000 passengers, 1800 were children. Highly recommend this ship to anyone.

I just got off a cruise from the Jewel about two days ago that started in Barcelona and went to Italy and France. I was very impressed with the ship (especially the cleanliness). As another stated, there were A LOT of kids but I traveled in the summer so you should keep that in mind when booking travel.

It made the pool like a kid playground but what can you do?

I highly recommed The Jewel

I think you'll find the pool area usually overtaken by kids on most cruises. There is an adult pool, but that's overrun by adults. The nice thing about the Freedom class ships is the H2O Zone, which is like a water park for kids. That leaves more pool area for us adults.

I've been on the Jewel and the Mariner more than once. I loved sailing on both. In my opinion, the ice skating rink and Promenade deck on the Voyager class ships, make that class my favorite. If a person never sailed on either, then it really won't make a difference. I would recommend sailing on both sometime in you life.
