Mariner of the Seas, one of Royal Caribbean‘s Voyager class of ships, is moving back home from Asia and is undergoing a massive revitalization that will give guests the chance to take their quick getaways to new heights.
When Royal Caribbean’s Voyager class of ships was launched they revolutionized the cruise industry by introducing innovative amenities such the iconic rock-wall, an ice-skating rink, a full size basketball and sports court, an inline skating track and Royal Caribbean’s signature Royal Promenade, a boulevard of shops, restaurants, bars and lounges that runs nearly the length of the ship.
With quick getaways becoming increasingly popular and necessary for today’s traveler, Royal Caribbean wants to make sure that its 3- and 4-night cruises are just as exceptional as longer escapes and is investing $900 million in upgrading its fleet. The Royal Amplified program focuses on innovative attractions, iconic pools, distinct bars and dining so guests can enjoy an ample variety of options and features that will allow them to escape from their routine and redefine their weekends.
Mariner of the Seas is currently in Cadiz (Spain) undergoing a $90 million amp-up as part of the Royal Amplified program.
Mariner of the Seas will redefine the quick Caribbean getaway by giving guests the chance to take their weekends to new heights with the addition of new thrills, such as Sky Pad – a bungee and trampoline virtual reality experience, a glow-in-the-dark laser tag arena, the Bamboo Room – a retro lounge with its tiki-chic décor, and the fun and vibrant Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade. Guests will also be able to experience Jamie’s Italian and Starbucks.
In addition to the flowrider and new waterslides Mariner of the Seas will continue to offer guests the chance to relax in the adults-only Solarium, swim in the two swimming pools or six whirlpools, or sunbathe in the revamped main pool area.
