Most cruise lines rules are if anyone in the cabin is under the age of 21 than you must have someone 25 or older in the cabin
Royal Caribbean changed its rules last summer, such that there must be someone age 21 or older in each room. It used to be 25, but is now 21.

We've been looking at those two ships as well.

For us, the most significant difference is that one leaves from Miami, which we find immensely more convenient than the Orlando/Port Canaveral haul.

One travels the western caribbean stopping at the lovely Labadee; the other goes to the eastern caribbean including Cocoa Cay.

One leaves on a Saturday, the other, a Sunday.

Whichever you choose, Bon Voyage!

So we would have to fly into Orlando for the Mariner?? Is that the closest airport for Port Canaveral? I never even gave that a thought, GOOD POINT! We have only flown into Orlando, how far is Miami from there?? So many things to thing about! We would like to go in July 2006, how long can I wait to book? We would be flying Southwest and they do not fly into Miami, what would be the airport to fly into?

Nat, Orlando is the closest commercial airport to Port Canaveral. Southwest flies into Orlando. The port is about a 45-60 minute drive from the airport. Currently, Royal Caribbean has transfers for which they charge $64 per person, round trip. Some folks like to rent a car or take other means of transportation to the port.

Ships are pretty crowded in the summer months, since that's when most families can travel. I wouldn't wait too much longer to book the cruise, especially since you want two cabins that are near each other.

Nat,
We always travel with our kids across the hall in an interior and us in a balcony. We do always have to put one adult's name in each room for booking purposes but I like that for a couple of reasons. Like said before you get double the coupon books, but since one of the kids is booked in my room(but sleeps across the hall) they have a key to my room and vice versa since one of us is booked in theirs.
I love the efficiency of Port Canveral and we have a timeshare we stay in there before we board so it tops my choice of ports.

Nat,

Just a thought. Some posters are saying that you will get two coupon books since you are getting two cabins. That is true, however if you are a first time cruiser you WILL NOT get any coupon books. Its a ploy to keep you cruising the same line. The more you cruise the better the coupons

I doubt it, but you can check. Either you or your travel agent should call Royal Caribbean and ask for their Crown & Anchor Desk. Then, that person will see if you're still in the computer by asking your name and city and state. If they do find you, write down your Crown & Anchor number and be sure to use it with every Royal Caribbean reservation you make.

Just a quick note about Crown & Anchor club. My husband last cruised on RC in 1989, and they were able to give us "Gold" status membership. They couldn't get all of the details of the reservation, but could confirm that he had cruised with RC before. It's worthwhile to call the contact number. They can enroll you immediately and then you'll get a coupon book this trip.
