Great pics Dave,
Even looks like your little guys had a good time, did they really enjoy the Voyager class ship?

Yes, very much! Not enough time to do or see everything so we have to go back.

Love the pics DTW! It's been almost 2 years since I was on the Mariner OTS, but I did recognize most of the areas on the ship where you took your pics! Are you putting up a review as well?

Good luck with the unpacking, that is certainly the only part of cruising nobody likes.

So how was the weather on your cruise? My wife is now set against going on any Voyager or Freedom class ship now since our cruise on the Mariner OTS. I had a great time, but we cruised the Eastern Caribbean on our cruise and we had clouds and rain for about 3 or 4 days on our cruise, which drove everyone indoors and the inside of the Mariner, especially the Royal Promenade, got very crowded. She just felt there were too many people onboard and the ship was too big. So until I can convince her otherwise, it is only Vision Class ships and smaller for us for now.

I see that Most Pictures are of Speedo's or something to do with booze....Should have know. Hope the Mariner was good, I'm on it July 8th. How would you rate it? 1-10? I haven't been on a Voyager Class ship in awhile *I was drunk for most of the One on the Voyager in 2006*... Long story

Blueliner,

Weather great, some rain but it was welcome. Voyager class was good for the kids. But there was more to do than I need. I too like the Vision class, particularily, the Enchantment. In fact, I may change my Nav on the 13th to the Echant on the 6th. Besides, it gets me "Out There" sonner.

Edward,

I would rate this ship a 10! Captain and crew 10! Fun Factor 10!

However, I can have as much fun on a smaller ship, maybe more....

Great photos, Dave! Looks like you have a fun cruise.

By the way, did you say you saw CG on your cruise, or that she was cruising on another ship at the same time, and sent you a photo?

Dean

Oh, and what about Riptide???

The latter... but the photo could have been old.

No, Riptide either.

It is also possible they are the same person.

Default Pictures from the Mariner

Thanks DTW for the pictures from the Mariner. We will be on there July 15-22 and it's nice to see it before we go. My husband and I were on Explorer of the Sea in 2004 and LOVED it so we're looking forward to this. There will be 8 of us going.

Dave, awesome pictures as usual. I can't get over how big the kids have gotten over the years. Your oldest is almost as big as you.

The ship looks beautiful. The balcony looks like you could have a good size party on it. Maybe I'll have to try Royal Caribbean instead of Carnival for my next cruise.

Where are the photos of the birthday boy and his cake?

Some of the mothers were in the audience and quite shocked I believe by the behavior.

I am a photo journalist and just showing the reality of it all. 8)

DTW: awesome pictures! Glad to hear you had an awesome cruise.

if CG actually exists and isn't a figment of Diptide's imagination, she truly missed the BOAT!

DTW, I really can't say the proper term to describe "that girl," but it's obvious she didn't have as good a time as you did, otherwise we'd see photos up from that other cruise line. Guess the cruise line fits her whole character pretty well!
