I enjoyed your review and it's balanced approach. Tell me about your evenings on board the Mariner.
We were so tired from our excursions each day that it was good for us to even make it to dinner most nights! We went to Compass Rose twice, La Veranda twice, Prime7 once, room service twice and cancelled our Signatures reservation.
After dinner, we'd go to the Observation Lounge and have drinks, where we met some really nice folks and the service and drinks were always great, as were the views. Our favorite evening was when we were docked in Monaco. It was absolutely gorgeous. We would sit there and always be surprised when we looked at a clock finally and it would be really late!
We never even really talked about going to any of the shows although I heard a lot of people say they enjoyed them. We left two small children at home and most of the time we just wanted relaxation and quiet time I guess!
