Default Help me choose a cruise!!

we've narrowed it down to 2. Either the Golden Princess or the Mariner of the Seas, help us choose. Any feedback will be helpful. I am leaning towards Princess - i like the itinerary better, have had good experiences with Princess and also the cabin layouts on the Golden seem to be larger than those on the Mariner. The Mariners cabins seem long and narrow?? i have an open mind, give me pros and cons please. Thanks gang! LisaK

i know, i know the Mariner is not scheduled to be in service until October 2003, so the comparison would be either the Voyager or Explorer.

We need more information! Itineraries, your personal tastes, etc. Personally I would lean toward Princess only because I think the Grand/Golden class is large enough; I can't imagine going on a ship larger than that........

hi again gang. Golden Princess - sails out of Lauderdale, St. Thomas, St. Marteen, Princess Cays, The Mariner sails out of Port Everglades - Nassau, St. Thomas, St. Marteen so ports are basically a non-issue, my main concern is accomodations as i had heard that the cabins in the Voyager class of ships are small and narrow, and my husband and son are big guys.

Of the itineraries, I would choose the Golden's; I would also choose that class of ship over the Voyager class (Mariner).
