Chevy,
I spoke with Joann at Capt. Marvin's today and she told me that the Mariner arrives at 7 am local time (RCCL lists it as arriving at 8 am but apparently that is not local time). So, making a 10 am (local time) trip should be more manageable with that extra hour factored in. We may see you on that trip!

Lacey and chevy,
That is great news! That means the ship will be staying on Miami time - that extra hour will make all the difference. I still suggest that you get in the line to get tender tickets right away, as on a ship that size the tender back-up can get lengthy if your not on one of the first tenders. (Just a word of advice from past experience).
Nancy

Thank you for the heads up, Nancy, on the tender lines. I've only sailed on much smaller ships than the Mariner so I'm betting there will be a number of adjustments I'll need to make.

Finally found the Buccaneer info and confirmed your previous post on a 10:30am departure. Looks like the exact same itinerary as Capt. Marvin's, and the same price. Other than the Buccaneer being a catamarant, any other discernable difference between the tours these 2 companies offer?

Lacey,
I have used both tour operators and the experience is quite similar. As you have already noticed - the only difference is in the vessel. Personally, I preferred the catamaran, as it was just a bit more pleasant ride (and they have a cash bar that was not available on Captain Marvin's boat).

Nancy , I have booked the 11:15 to 1:15 (local time )trip with Captian Marvin. They tell me that I will get back no later than 2:00 ( ship time 3:00 ) . Is that enough time to get back to the Mariner ? Also do the Captian Marvin ships have a cash bar ? Thanks Scott aka.... CHEVY

Hi Chevy,
Yes, you should be fine timewise. If you are scheduled in port until 4 PM, the last tender back to the ship will be 3:30 PM (ship's time).

No, there is no cash bar on Capt. Marvin's boat. Thanks for asking the question, however, it made me catch the mistake in my previous post as I had meant to say: "The Buccaneer has a cash bar available that was not available on Captain Marvin's boat". (I will immediately make the correction.)

Nancy

I am scheduled to be on the navigator on 8/19 & want to tour with native tours on their rays, reef and rum pt. tour. this tour is from 9-2 gc time. Will we have enough time to make our tender, especially if the navigator stays on ship time & not GC time? Does anyone know if the navigator changes their clock?
