 Mariner of the Seas will be more fabulous than ever when she unveils fantastic new features in June 2018. Royal Caribbean has given her a nearly $100 million dollar “Royal Amplified” upgrade. This popular 3,114-guest ship will introduce a host of already popular attractions and experiences that are sure to delight guests of all ages. Cater to your palate at dining venues with decadent culinary treats, hang ten on the 40-foot-long FlowRider surf simulator, race down The Perfect Storm waterslides and much more.

The quintessential weekend getaways are available with three- and four-day itineraries. Sailings run roundtrip from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas and Coco Cay which is Royal Caribbean’s private island and was also recently upgraded with new amenities and activities.

Non-stop adventure is part of her makeover as she redefines the short cruise. Features added to enhance family entertainment include fun zones on the top deck and the thrilling Sky Pad, wherein participants wear virtual reality headsets while on a bungee trampoline for the gravity-defying feeling of bouncing over moon craters. The Perfect Storm waterslides, Cyclone and Typhoon, spiral around the back of the ship and let you race other guests for a wet and wild adventure.

Another addition is the ultra-fun glow-in-the-dark laser tag experience located in the Studio B skating rink. Here guests can complete in the exhilarating “Battle for Planet Z” — intergalactic games. Grab your team and participate in an adrenaline-filled escape room experience, Puzzle Break: The Observatorium, you’ll have 60 minutes or less to solve puzzles and discover clues to break free.

Chic and fun, The Bamboo Room is an all-new Polynesian-themed watering hole and Mariner of the Seas is currently the only Royal Caribbean ship to boast this cool bar. The retro venue has “tiki” décor and will provide the perfect backdrop to sip on specialty handcrafted cocktails and socialize. Destined to be another popular gathering spot is Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, with video games and more.

Family-style dining at Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver is a creation of the popular British celebrity chef. Additional eateries now on Mariner include Chops Grille, Izumi Hibachi & Sushi along with Starbucks, where you can indulge your coffee cravings.

Enjoy all of this and more on Mariner of the Seas, acclaimed for its variety of comfortable accommodations, mouthwatering cuisine, youth programs, world-class entertainment, exceptional amenities and lots of fun.
