Default ship choice - in a hurry!

I have to make a decision today between Radiance and Mariner. We'll have 3 teenage boys with us. (March 13). Any suggestions? Itineraries are both acceptable so it's down to the ships.

I have never been on the Mof the Seas but twice on the R of the Seas whichever one you pick you can't go wrong, we are doing the M of the Seas in Nov. put the names of the 2 ships in a hat and pick one.

I have been on both classes twice, and would have to say that MOS will be better suited for a family and kid's. Go Mariner.

We did the Mariner and are looking forward to trying the Radiance in May. Having 3 sons myself, I would choose the Mariner!! It is huge and they will love it.

For teens I'd suggest the Mariner. I'm 15 and I went on the Navigator last year. I loved it.

I agree with the previous posters, Marinier mainly because you are going with the kids, lots of activities for them, plus the parades and ice show, which is not to be missed.

Probably the Mariner just because it has a few more things. You'd love Radiance too though.

For families/teens, go Voyager-class, so Mariner of the seas.
For couples, Radiance-class if you want an intimate/romantic setting or Voyager-class if you want as many activities as you can get.

I agree.... for the kids the Mariner is great... much more to do.. the Radiance is a beautiful ship though... lots of glass and very classy...
We are going on the Explorer again... did the Mariner last July... but we Very much enjoyed the Explorer so that is where I chose to take my kids... well they arent really kids anymore.. but just the same...
Dont worry... whichever ship you choose you will enjoy!
