Mariner of the Seas Cruise Review by kag7458
- Sail Date: December 2008
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
I do have three complaints. 1. A passenger had a huge, hairy, dirty-looking dog that she said was a service dog because she has diabetes. I have never seen an uncontrolled service dog in my life. The thing drug the lady because it did not walk next to her. During breakfast one day it got loose in the dining room. The animal came and laid it's head on the table next to me. Scared the daylights out of me. The waiters were running around like the three stooges trying to catch it because it didn't have it's harness on. There was no vest identifying this animal as a service dog. I like dogs but not romping around my food. 2. The computers and internet connections were so slow they ate up the money in my prepaid account. It took me twenty minutes to get signed in and read two emails. I won't waste my money on that anymore. I wanted to email my children and grandchild for Christmas. 3. I went to a seminar at the Shipshape Spa only to find out after one hour that it was a sales pitch for a $700.00 toxin cleansing program. I missed some other things I wanted to do to go to this seminar. I never imagined they would try to sell me something like that on a cruise. I am now educated!
Other than that we had a fabulous trip. Coco Cay was lovely, St. Thomas and St. Maarten were beautiful. I found some lovely little shops to take my friends to when we go there in March on another cruise on another cruise line. I booked that trip in September and this Christmas cruise 10 days before the ship sailed!

St. MaartenWe were there on Christmas Day so by law the stores in the downtown area had to be closed. There is a large shopping area at the pier. We took the $6.00 all day watertaxi over to the town. The beaches were packed. We went to the Pirates in Paradise Beach Bar for lunch. The owner is from Columbus, Ohio! We had Carib beer for $2.00 a bottle and a great hamburger for $7.00. The owners name is Michael and I told him I would be back with my friends in March. I'd like to see more of the island.View All 4,729 St. Maarten Cruise Port Reviews

St. ThomasGreat shopping, crazy traffic, beautiful island. I wouldn't rent a car on a bet! Had lunch at Cafe Amicci. Good food. Take the $4.00 taxi to and from the pier area. They are really trucks converted into rows of seats. Great fun.View All 4,648 St. Thomas Cruise Port Reviews
