Tis the season for sweet treats, end-of-season sales, extra hours stuck in traffic, and being tasked to plan the next family Christmas reunion. The latter is every yuppie’s blessing and curse, really. You’re young enough to know what your nephews might enjoy, but you’re also too old to settle for a beer pong night. Your paying titas think you’re the Master of the Internet and they trust you with their platinum credit cards to book whatever is needed for your next grand get-together. It’s a powerful position to be in, but the fun stops once the family Viber group becomes flooded with suggestions and special requests.
When it comes to planning an itinerary that has something for every member of the extended Filipino family, Royal Caribbean International’s Mariner of the Seas might be what you’re looking for. It’s hard to please everybody, but as a ship that’s 1,020 feet long and has enough room for 3,807 guests and a crew of 1,185, the Mariner of the Seas easily makes for a well-deserved getaway for everyone.
