If they dont replace her with a similar or better ship I have to say that I may be jumping brands. We dont have any other options here in LA except Carnival. But the Splendor is brand new so it will be more appealing if they replace the Mariner with anything less.....

It's just a shame that RCCL seems to be giving up on the West coast entirely. But I guess I can understand when I look at the prices for Mariner cruises.....

Well we have Princess, Holland and NCL, but I have heard nothing but bad about all. Princess got an "ok"....

We loved having the Mariner here. So sad...

We were on the Oasis with you Dec Labadee Extravaganza
Any way anyone know which ship is coming to the west coast? We have a possible wedding in Puerto Vallarta port in May 2011.

Thanks

WOW... well I guess I am happy that we are sailing on Mariner again this coming Sunday!!!! So RCCL will not have ANY ships serving the Mexican Riviera from Los Angeles/San Pedro? I'm surprised... I thought the MR cruises did pretty well over the summer. Maybe they will move Adventure out here like someone suggested previously on another thread.

They are going to lose a lot of business to Carnival.... bet the prices will go up on Splendor for the 2011 summer season! maybe they are making room for the a Disney Ship?

I am completely heartbroken, I must say. It's as if we don't exist over here! Or wait, could we be free-ing up space for something larger, perhaps? Ok, I know, that's how rumors get started!! Just wishful thinking, I guess!
