Thank you Dave. Actually, it's the "Mariner" I'm about to cruise on. I loved the "Navigator". It was the best vacation I have ever been on. Now, I'm a cruiser for life. Thanks for your input. Have you been on the "Mariner"?
Been on the Mariner twice, once on a back to back. If the Navigator is a sister ship, then you'll love it. Which intinerary are you going on? Maybe I can offer some tips for your excursions. Been on the Western twice and the Eastern Once.
Much like Scott, we've been on MAriner twice, adn are planning our third this year in September. Of the Voyager class of ships, she is the newest, and is a sister ship to Navigator. She is beautiful, and well taken care of by her crew. Her interior dressings are a bit flashy; I wouldn't even call them subdued, but she is a wonderful ship, and I'm sure you'll have a great time.
See as many shows onboard as you can, and be sure to visit Chops Grill-the best.
Thank you so much Dave, Scott, and Jim. My hubby and I will be going on I guess the eastern cruise. We will visit San Juan, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten. We went on the western about four years ago. We are most interested in history and good food. Grateful for your help.
Wow Sonny, you have a great 2008 planned!
Thanks for the comments. I'm so looking forward to this vacation thanks to everyone's help. Now, help me plan our excursions. We definitely want to see all the shows we can while on the ship. We have climbed a waterfall, snorkled, and swam with stingrays. Give us some ideas for fun. Thanks again for all your help.
Mariner must have changed thier intinerary. They used to go to Coco Cay, St. Thomas then St. Martin. I've Never been to Puerto Rico, but I'm sure there's a lot of history there. Since you like food, be sure to eat as much as possible in the Main Dinning room, the food is great. My wife and I like beaches and snorkeling the best. If you're going to St Thomas you've got to book the Five Star Champagne Catamaran Sail and Snorkel to St. John, it's awesome. Another one of our favorites is Trunk Bay in St. John. Royal Caribbean has excursions to both. Here's a pic of Trunk Bay, just beautiful!
