Mariner of the Seas room?

Recommended Posts

I also posted this in the Royal Caribbean area. But may get a better response here. 


We had a cruise planned with our grandkids for June on a different cruise line "Carnival". We had a nice ext. balcony in the back of the ship. Of course that was cancel due to the "virus". Planning on rebooking this time with Royal Caribbean to give the kids the experience on a larger ship. Mariner of the Seas because it's close to us, don't feel like driving down to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami for 3-4 day cruise.


Haven't booked anything yet, but looking at prices of rooms. Looks like for about the same price we could either book connecting balcony rooms or room 1688/1388. That's if those are available for when we book. There will be two adults and two kids 10 & 12. We have done 3 other cruises in one room before. But looking at room space as they get older. 


If you had a choice which room would you book?

We have one of those corner aft rooms booked in Mariner (but most likely cancelling...boo hoo).  Also a family of 4 .  Looks like a great room if booking one room due to the extra space and neat balcony.


If both are in your budget...then I would pick connecting balcony rooms. You would get 2 washrooms and your kids would get their own bed vs having to share a soda bed.

Both of those cabins show some "obstruction" to views....but it's certainly not total obstruction.  Both are identical...just depends on the side of the ship you prefer!
