Mariner of the Seas Overview

By Cruiseline.com

Singles, couples, and families can choose from an assortment of active adventures on Mariner of the Seas: Gaze at the horizon from atop the 200-foot rock-climbing wall, glide around the ice-skating rink, or soar across the ship on The Perfect Storm waterslides. Unleash your competitive side with glow-in-the-dark Battle for Planet Z laser tag, then head to the Sky Pad for some bungee trampoline fun. Teen hangouts and kid-friendly programs, such as Adventure Ocean, keep younger passengers entertained while adults dance the night away in a Latin-style club, try their luck in the casino, or explore the ship's nine bars and lounges.

Mariner of the Seas received a massive $120 million update in 2018 as part of the Royal Amplified series of refurbishments, which added enhanced staterooms along with activities like the gravity-defying Sky Pad, an escape room, the FlowRider surf simulator, and new water slides. On the dining front, Royal added Izumi hibachi and sushi, the Polynesian-themed Bamboo Room bar, and Jamie’s Italian with Italian selections by Chef Jamie Oliver, supplementing a lineup of options that already included fan-favorites like Johnny Rockets, Chops Grille, and even a Ben & Jerry’s.

Mariner of the Seas itineraries include short, 3-4 night Caribbean and Bahamas sailings out of Miami, Florida. Cruisers on Mariner of the Seas can enjoy Royal Caribbean’s Perfect Day at CocoCay, an exclusive resort-style island featuring a thrilling waterpark, relaxing overwater cabanas, zip lines, and wave pools. In June 2019, Mariner will leave Miami and begin sailing from Port Canaveral.

Beautiful Caribbean Cruise by annacrane

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Despite a sick child and need to cancel a few excursions as a result, the staff and crew of the Mariner saved what could have been a disastrous trip. The care they showed my child and my family was amazing as well as their professionalism, thoughtfulness and courtesy.

Nice getaway by imayankee

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Great for a quick getaway/long weekend. Once CocoCay is completed it will easily be the best cruise stop on the cruise itinerary.

average cruise with mixed quality of staff by nepal9

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Other than the room - the suite experience is very poor compared to Symphony of the Seas which is excellent.

Learn which side of ship your cabin is on to easy finding it the first few times. Remember: food is aft, entertainment forward. Simplifies which way to head out.

Go to the windjammer for lunch.

The 'Our Time' dining is a lot more flexible. You only have a window of 15 minutes for early and late dining.
