I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all of their help leading up to my first cruise! It was incredible and your help made it so! Cruisemates is a great tool if you haven't cruised yet!
I love taking pictures (not that I am good at it, but enjoy it nonetheless). So I posted some pics of the Mariner OS Eastern Itinerary (May 1-8, 2005) if anyone is interested in seeing some pics of the Marinier and the ports.
I didn't post them all, since I took over 1100 pics that week, but there are plenty up there. I know how obsessive I was up until the day I left trying to find every possible detail and photo that I could, so I figured I would share for those who are obsessive like me.
Oh!! My!!! What great pictures, we will be on the Mariner in a few weeks, can't Wait your photo's really show parts of the ship and details more than any I seen on the web in my 7 month search for photo's Thanks So Much for posting them for us.

I did the same thing before I went, so I tried to take photos that I wanted to remember, but also ones that I couldn't find anywhere on the web when I researched it. The only thing I didn't really take photos of was the room. It looked just like the brochure pics!
Have fun on your cruise! I am sure you will love it! Let me know what you thought of it when you get back!
My Family and I (group of 9) are cruisning her in 1/06, and I have been waiting to see some "real" pitures of the ship and you nailed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They were perfect!! We have never cruised so I am constantly looking for that personal insider view of what goes on!!!!!
Now I am even more excited to get out there!!!!
Did you ever feel like you were the only one taking pictures?? that is a fear of mine?? I am not a photographer but I LOVE PICTURES!!!!!! I am afraid I feel like a "tourist", and dorky like for taking a picture of everything I pass by!!!???
Thank you for your post I have sent on the links to all who is coming with!!!!
Mariner of the Seas 1/29/06
Everyone on the ship is a tourist, no matter how hard they try and hide it! People were courteous when I was trying to take a pic, many other people took photos, although probably not as many. I was always with a camera whether it was my pocket digital or my better one. It was actually funny because you saw more cameras on the last saturday than any other day. Everyone was trying to get their photos in at the last minute. We didn't care for Nassau too much so we came back on board and I had plenty of fun taking pics because there was hardly anyone around the ship. It was nice, we had the pool pretty much to ourselves!
Have a good time and don't worry about what others think, you won't ever see them again anyway!
I have never been on a RCL before, always CCL. This will be our first on Oct 30, this year. You have done a wounderful job. I can't wait to get on this ship now I've seen your pics. The colars on this ship is awsome. I will be on my 25th anniversary and needed a change from CCL and I think I found it by looking at your pics. Thanks a lot for sharing them. Have a good day!
Any chance you could post some of your photos in the CruiseMates photo gallery? I'm sure lots of folks would love to see them there. Thanks.

Mary Lou, I started to upload a bunch of them, but had some issues with your uploading and I just figured it would be easier to keep them all in one place and if someone wants to link to them then that would be fine. Maybe I will try again when I have some time.
Debra, Have fun! I am sure you will love it!
DavidB, Did you take any pics? Would love to see them! Also, what else did you like or dislike!
My wife and I were on this cruise and had a great time. We'd love to see these photos, but when I went to this web site for Photograph.com I logged on and couldn't locate the photos. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it.
Already planning for the next one in Sept. Great Cruising Everyone!
