At almost 140,000 tons and a combined passenger and crew population of well over 4,000 people, the Mariner of the Seas isn't just another ship cruising the Caribbean ports. The Mariner is a port - a moving island - that just happens to be a ship!

But if you think the Mariner of the Seas is just another typical mega-liner - nothing more than a standard cruise ship on steroids - you're wrong. The Mariner (and her sister ships the Voyager, Explorer, Adventure, and Navigator of the Seas) are unique. There are no ships anywhere quite like these giants. Here's what they have that set them apart:
  • Four-deck interior promenade lined with bars, cafes, shops, and an ice-cream parlor!
  • "Atrium-view" inside cabins for unique, ring-side views of the promenade action
  • Ice-skating rink for passenger fun and spectacular ice show entertainment
  • Two giant centrums (not just one) with scenic glass elevators soaring 13 decks
Plus, you’ll also have these Royal Caribbean exclusives onboard the Mariner:
  • Rock-climbing wall to test your skill and stamina
  • Inline skating track to test your knees and shins!
  • Johnny Rockets® hamburger diner and a long list of other dining venues to test your willpower!
But wait - there's more. The Mariner of the Seas and her identical sister ship the Navigator of the Seas, boast features shared by no other ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet: a huge, 22,000-square-foot facility devoted to children and teens - bigger than on any other Royal Caribbean ship. Plus, the first ever Ben & Jerry's ice cream parlor at sea, a Latin jazz bar, an Asian fusion restaurant, and even more glass and natural light in public areas and staterooms that her predecessors.

  • Active, "Get Out There" passengers
  • Passengers who prefer "ship-focused" itineraries
  • Seniors or physically challenged (unless occupying a stateroom near one of the two elevator banks)
  • Passengers who insist on ultra-flexible dining. The Mariner offers the traditional style of dining with assigned dining times and tables. Still, there are plenty of alternative dining options to mix up the dining experience.
