This cruise was David and Francesca's 5th on Royal Caribbean, CJ's 2nd.  The Mariner of the Seas is a gorgeous ship and conveniently only an hour away so this was our 3rd sailing on her.  While onboard we booked an eastern Caribbean cruise on her for the week after Thanksgiving.  We were even recognized by quite a few on the dining staff from previous sailings!
