I didn't get a digital camera until I sailed on the Monarch. That's why you don't see any other ship galleries. Yes, I was on the mariner. I had cabin 1688 which is a Cat. D1 aft with a balcony deck 10 on the starboard corner. The cabin is bigger than other D1 cabins because of the corner layout. About 6 feet wider.
I am a Diamond Plus Member of the Crown & Anchor Society (after 24 cruises)so I can call and get the latest prices. Prices change daily. My travel agent alway matched those prices with out me telling her the price I got from the Diamond Plus Desk. Now that's a good travel agent! So you might say I have a "secret agent"
What catagory is your cabin? I had an E1 corner on the Navigator deck 8 and it wasn't as big as a D1. I think I just remembered your cabin is between a corner cabin and a junior suite on deck 7 which would be a E1(let me know if I'm wrong). You will love it.
I'm excited about getting a preview cruise on the Freedom on May 19th. It's a 2 night cruise and I hope to get lots of pictures to share. Keep in touch for those. My email is on my photo site. You probably saw the picture of my wife and I at the introduction. If not..
