Mariner ?'s
Has anyone been on Mariner of the Seas since it started the Mexican Riviera cruises? I am curious as to what are the good excursions, things to do, what to expect, etc. Any info would be appreciated... We are going May 10!!! Thanks.

Re: Mariner
We just got back home on Sunday. We had the time of our lives. It will be hard to ever match that vacation again in our life times.

We didn't go any excursions in Cabo. We had a wedding to attend.

We were expecting Mazatlan to be the most boring day, but it was actually our favorite day of the whole trip. We booked the excursion for $45/person here:

We had the time of our lives drinking all of their free alcohol, riding the banana boats, kayaking, playing volleyball, and then they cooked up some delicious tacos. It seemed a bit short as we didn't get a chance to snorkel. There were 6 in our group and we loved it.

This was another excellent day. We booked a zip line tour for $67/person here:
We rode 14 zip lines. One was 1/4 mile long. The highest was 700 ft up. The guides are so hilarious; basically a comedy act. It didn't come with free alcohol or food, but the restaurant at the end of the trip had delicious food.

Some of the highlights of our cruise were:

The Quest game show
The Love and Marriage game show
The Miss biceps competition
Dodge Ball tournament
Rock climbing
Dance lessons (swing, cha cha, tango...etc.)

It's hard to be back home.
