Mariner Of The Seas Review

Review of Mariner Of The Seas

Launched in 2003, Mariner of the Seas is the 5th Voyager-class Royal Caribbean ship, together with Adventure OTS, Explorer OTS, Navigator OTS and Voyager OTS.

History - construction and ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is a US company, trademarked brand, and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL, shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCCL's largest fleet as both numbers of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). All Royal Caribbean liners have names ending with "of the Seas".

Mariner Of The Seas cruise ship (Royal Caribbean)

The 138,279-ton, 3,114-passenger cruise ship Mariner of the Seas is largely the same as her siblings, but Mariner was the first of its class to get Royal Advantage upgrade treatment as part of a US$300 million initiative to create uniformity across the Royal fleet and add signature elements represented first on the 5,400-guest Oasis-class vessels. As such, cruisers who sail on a Voyager-class ship are able to experience a number of twists beyond the signature ice rink, rock wall, and Royal Promenade.

Cruise itinerary program

Mariner of the Seas itinerary program is based on Asia cruises with roundtrip departures from Singapore, Shanghai, and Tianjin. Feature destinations are South Korea and Japan from China and Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam from Singapore.

Cabins

Most of the Mariner of the Seas staterooms are 150-sq.foot insides (480). Almost 50% of ship's accommodations have private balcony views. There are a total of 1557 staterooms in 25 categories. 26 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. The largest aboard Mariner of the Seas are the Royal Suites (1335 ft2 - more than 120 m2!).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Mariner of the Seas features a 3-deck main restaurant with music-themed design. Each of its three levels has an appropriate musical name. The von Trapp family tableau adds charm to the room. A nice touch is also the live music on the upper landing of the ship's staircase. However, the primary dining experience aboard Mariner includes two alternative restaurants. A steakhouse atmosphere is offered at Chops Grille. Giovanni's Table is an Italian themed restaurant that serves Caprese salad, herb focaccia, pasta, and braised meat dishes. Both are reservation-preferred eateries (book up early, since reservations can be made pre-cruise, online). Giovanni's levies a US$20 surcharge; Chops Grille is US$30.

Mariner Of The Seas Wiki

Mariner OTS was constructed in 2003 in Turku Finland at Kvaerner Masa-Yards (now part of STX Europe / division of STX Holding, South Korea). Ship's godmother was Jean Drsicoll (US athlete). She has participated in four Summer Olympic games and won 5 gold, 3 silver and 4 bronze medals in wheelchair racing. She also won the Boston Marathon 8 times, which is a record achieved by no one else. The naming ceremony took place on November the 14th at Port Canaveral (Orlando) Florida. After the naming ceremony, on the 16th of November, Mariner sailed on her maiden voyage to the Eastern Caribbean with destinations like Puerto Rico, Nassau, and Saint Maarten.

Being one of RCCL's really big ships, Mariner has the 4-deck high Royal Promenade, in size longer than a football field. This is one of the liner's most popular public places, and despite that, it has no windows it is still a breathtaking area dazzlingly illuminated all the time. The Mariner ship's decoration is "Art Noveau" style marked by beauty and simplicity.
