Independence or Mariner for Spring Break?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We are taking out two teenagers on a cruise for spring break- the week before Easter in April. I am looking at 4 day on Mariner or 5 day on Independence. The ships seem pretty comparable to me, however, I have read several times that Independence seems more crowded.

 

During a busy spring break week I am sure both ships will be full of kids. Do you think we would be better off on Mariner? Or will it be so crowded it won't even matter?

 

Independence has the advantage of one more night but I'd trade that if the experience on Mariner would be better.

Marnier has been updated recently with some cool features...but Indy is a great ship, bigger and a longer cruise so that would be my choice!

Indy received the same upgrades in May (sky pad, playmakers, etc).

Both will be more kids than if sailing off season. I would take the longer sailing. Mariner has recently been upgraded with nice features such as the Sky Pad.

Independence has also been upgraded and it looks like they both have the same features, I was on Mariner in August and in checking the videos I have seen for Independence it also has the Sky Pad along with all the other upgrades Mariner got

I'd go for the longer cruise myself.
