Mariner of the Seas has just joined Independence of the Seas in receiving a major refit by Royal Caribbean International.
As part of a $900 million commitment to “reimagine” ten ships in the line’s fleet over four years, a total of $120 million has been spent on Mariner of the Seas.
The vessel sailed into its new home at PortMiami June 21st ahead of setting sail on Monday on a four-night cruise to the Bahamas.
It will sail to the new Perfect Day at CocoCay, the first destination in Royal Caribbean’s recently announced collection of private island experiences around the world from May 2019.
Royal is hoping to attract millennial travellers to the short cruises with the following features:
-Virtual reality bungee trampoline experience Sky Pad
-Glow-in-the-dark laser tag
-The line’s first Polynesian-inspired bar, The Bamboo Room
Royal Caribbean International president and chief executive Michael Bayley said: “Millennials want more frequent and shorter holidays that offer as much of that exhilarating adventure they seek.
We’ve answered that call by investing $120 million in Mariner of the Seas and bringing her to Miami to sail three-night and four-night cruises.
With the combination of more thrills than you can count and visits to tropical destinations, Mariner is changing the game and taking the short getaway experience to a whole new level.”
