After an extensive $90 million makeover, Mariner of the Seas will be ready to wow guests and take them on fun weekend cruises to the Bahamas. Beginning in June 2018, travelers will be able to enjoy 3 and 4-night escapes from PortMiami to Nassau and CocoCay – Royal Caribbean’s private island.
Adrenaline junkies won’t want to miss the Sky Pad, a brand new virtual reality bungee trampoline experience on the ship. Guests will strap in and don their VR headsets to transport them to another time and planet, to bounce over moon craters or compete in intergalactic games. The activity can also be enjoyed without the VR headsets, for those who want to jump around on the ship while looking out over the ocean.
Mariner of the Seas will see the addition of several recent Royal Caribbean favorites, including The Perfect Storm, duel racing waterslides Cyclone and Typhoon, and a glow-in-the-dark laser tag experience. The ship will also offer a new escape room activity called Puzzle Break: The Observatorium, where competitors put their minds to the test, working together to solve a series of high-tech riddles. Fans of the FlowRider surfing simulator will also be able to get their fix aboard the revitalized ship.
On Royal Caribbean, the fun never stops just because the sun goes down. The Bamboo Room – a new Polynesian-themed watering hole found only on Mariner – will be a bar on everyone’s “must-visit” list. The lounge will have a retro, kitschy feel, with specialty handcrafted cocktails to savor in the evenings. Sports fans will enjoy Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, where they can enjoy the biggest live sporting events over ice-cold brews, wings, sliders, and more.
For those looking for a taste bud adventure, Mariner of the Seas will not disappoint. Jamie’s Italian offers Chef Jamie Oliver’s rustic Italian dishes made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, including pastas made in-house each day. Caffeine addicts can get their fix at the onboard Starbucks, and sushi fans can enjoy Izumi Hibachi & Sushi with made-to-order hot and cold dishes.
The 15-deck Mariner of the Seas will continue to offer an array of classic Royal Caribbean experiences, including the Studio B ice-skating rink, a 40-foot rock climbing wall, a mini golf course, three pools, a basketball court, and outdoor poolside movie nights.
