hi we are going on the mariner of the seas June 11, 2006, we will be staying in 1692 (aft) and was wondering is this a good room? I was told the balconies on the aft were bigger is this true? we are also bringing my 8 year old son and my 5 year old daughter, and we are traveling with my cousin and her family (11 y/o boy and 6 y/o daughter) what are the chances of they allowing my daughter to move up with 6-8 and my son move up to the 9-11 age. this might be a problem especially for the girls. any info would be helpful, like formal nights, and theme nights (ie. 50's) so we can prepare. what time do you actually get to board the ship. What about spa menu is there a way to find out what there is and the cost? Again thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you all.

The aft balconies are larger and deeper than those along the sides of the ship. But if you want huge, the cabins on the ends (like 1688) have balconies as large as the rooms themselves. We had one of those cabins in 2004 on the Mariner. But your balcony will be quite good sized. Bear in mind that there is a good bit of ship structure aft of your balcony, so don't expect to look down and see water. You won't.

We had a fine cruise on the Mariner. Formal on RCCL is not as rigid as on some other lines. A suit or sport coat for men. Cocktail dresses for the ladies. These seem to be the norm. Not many people dress for the theme nights. I have always found it ironic that RCCL says blue jeans are not allowed in the dining room for dinner service, yet they have a western theme night. I wear them anyway and have never had a problem. I am not alone either.

I can't tell you about the kids moving around in the programs. I think they are more liberal with older kids during the day, but I can't say with the younger ones. The youth staff knows how old every kid is - they get printouts before the cruise even starts - so you can't really sneak something by them. Maybe someone else has some experience in this area.

We have cruised mariner twice with kids. The play area is loosely divided and the kids do, infact interact with other ages. The staff allows family to interact a lot at that age. The only thing between the two areas are some ropes or bean bag chairs etc. I am very certain you will not be disappointed. Also, they do talent shows and circus night and all the kids participate together in that regardless of age... Now no teenagers, tho-- that would be too uncool.
