no this topic hasnt gone off subject because I WAS on the mariner October 2nd-9th. VERY RANDOM. I was the tall blonde guy having a blast. I remember meeting 2 girls that fit that description. This is really weird. Do you have a pic or something I have some from that cruise as well. I was on the 6th or 7th deck i forget. How random is that though? Well I will hopefully hear from you soon.
