Hey - I have only cruised Disney (5 times). How are the rooms compared to the Mariner? (if anyone else has cruised Disney). Also, does anyone know if they allow you to bring any alcohol onboard? Disney is very leniant about this, and you can bring it onboard.

Also, on Disney, you only need a "raised-seal" birth certificate. Does anyone know what you would need on Mariner for the 7-day cruise?

Well I have never been on Disney so the only thing I can tell you is, Anywhere you sail in the Caribbean you only need your drivers license and a birth certificate, The only exception is if you board a ship in Barbados there you have to have a passport.

I just completed my first ever cruise last week, on Mariner of the Seas.

I stuffed one of my suitcases with a six bottles of Diet Coke and about twelve small bottle of water. My sisters also sneaked in a couple of cases of bottled water in their suitcases. We didn't have any problems. None of us brought alcohol on board tho.

On my seven-night cruise, I had a passport. But I think I only had to show it two times, one was when I was first boarding the ship in Miami, and the second time was when I was going thru customs after exiting the ship. While in Jamaica, Labadee, and Cozumel the only thing we had to show was our seapass card when we got off and back on. We skipped the Caymans because of the hurricane.

While exiting the ship and going thru customs, they did say "get out your passports, or if you have a birth certificate get that out with your license." So I assume you can use your birth certificate, but I'm not guaranteeing that.

As for the rooms, this was my first ever cruise so I can't compare. I can say that I found this ship absolutely awesome.

Wanda, As Disney has designed their cabins for families, they are as a rule larger than other mainstream cruise cabins (including the Mariner). Of course, it also depends on what category cabin you have booked. If you share the specific category of stateroom you will be occupying I can be more definitve.

As for the need for passports, it is not based on what cruise line you sail but what ports you will be visiting. What is your itinerary?

Nancy
