My husband and I will be leaving on the Mariner on Feb.6 2005. I was wondering if there are extra charges for the shows on board. For instance the ice shows. WE sailed last year on the Nordic Empress and the year before that on the Carnival Pride, but I don't remember having to pay extra for any of the entertainment.Thanks for any help any of you may be able to give me.

Hiya
I was on the Mariner at the begining of November and we didn't have to pay for the shows. However you will require to get tickets for the ice show,first come first served only. There are planty of showings so you won't be disapointed.
Your going to love the ship, so much to see and do.
Enjoy your cruise.
Billy

Hi Billy,
Thank you for replying.I think I read a review somewhere and it mentioned getting tickets ahead of time for the ice show so thats why I thought maybe there would be an extra charge. Good to hear that I was wrong.
This ship is so much larger than the others we have been on.I can hardly wait!
I am handicapped and I am looking forward to seeing if this ship will be able to accomodate my mode of transportation,lol.I have problems walking due to Osteoporosis and I have a scooter that I ride.I have taken it with me on my two previous trips. I had no problems on the Carnival ship, but of course it was a new ship, but was very dissapointed in the Nordic Empress.I had trouble getting into all the elevators.And we didn't dock at piers at two of the stops.It was very hard to get on the shuttle of course and I was limited as to what I was able to do because I couldn't take my scooter.
OK ,lol, I am getting too long winded, so thanks again Billy and I will certainly report back to the boards after my trip .

Linda,
Welcome to cruise-chat! You should have no problems getting around on the Mariner with your scooter. The Voyager and Radiance Class ships in the RC fleet all get high marks for their accessibility and accommodations for the physically challenged. You are sure to have a great trip.
Nancy

Linda, welcome aboard! I was recently on the Mariner of the Seas and you will find it an excellent choice. The Voyager class ships are extremely wheel chair / scooter friendly.

I did a MEGA review of the Mariner at;

There are a ton of pictures, so it will take a little time to download. Have a great cruise.
