Hi. I am looking to go solo on a cruise from Los Angeles to Mexico in the next few months. Which Royal ship is better. the Mariner Of The Seas or the Vision Of The Seas? They both seem to have the same stops along the way.
I hate to disparage one of the ship's of glass ("Vision") but I'd wait for the "Mariner." The ice show is great, as well as the open skating times but the main thing is just having so much to do and see while onboard. Just my 2 cents, Robbie
I have been on Mariner twice and two Vision class ships Enchantment and Grandeur. With kids I would do Mariner again but by myself or with a date, I would do Vision. I like to smaller ship feel and you don't get lost in the crowd as easily. Both will offer great service ships are in great shape. I guess it would depend on the timing and the price.

we were on the mariner of the sea --this one came highly recommended by our travel agent as the best--- it was like being in a fancy spa hotel --so relaxing and i could have stayed another week--my favorite place on the ship was the no kids area
