Mariner of the Seas is part of Royal Caribbean’s $900 million Royal Amplified programme, which seeks to reimagine its fleet.
The ship will welcome guests for the first time on 25 June, as it sets sail on a four-night cruise to the Bahamas. The newly reimagined ship will continue to offer four-night weekday and three-night weekend itineraries from Miami, with visits to Nassau and CocoCay.
Beginning May 2019, Mariner will sail to the new Perfect Day at CocoCay, the first destination in Royal Caribbean’s recently announced collection of private island experiences around the world.
The ship includes Sky Pad, a virtual reality, bungee trampoline experience; Royal Caribbean’s first Polynesian-inspired, tiki-chic bar, The Bamboo Room; and glow-in-the-dark laser tag, racer waterslides and more.
“Millennials want more frequent and shorter holidays that offer as much of that exhilarating adventure they seek. We’ve answered that call by investing $120 million in Mariner of the Seas and bringing her to Miami to sail three-night and four-night cruises,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “With the combination of more thrills than you can count and visits to tropical destinations, Mariner is changing the game and taking the short getaway experience to a whole new level.”
