Why choose Mariner of the Seas?

Cruising is an increasingly competitive marketplace and as one of the major players in this sector, Royal Caribbean is pulling out all the stops, investing £300million on keeping its cruise liners at the cutting edge of technology, style and enjoyment. Passengers can reap the benefits on a cruise on the Mariner of the Seas, which tours Asia and the Caribbean.

Destinations and Itineraries

Until October the home port of this ship is Shanghai, embarking on a series of short cruises lasting between three and eight nights with an ever-changing itinerary. The Jeju and Basan Cruise makes two ports of call in South Korea on its four night journey, where passengers can visit ancient temples and exotic gardens.

In September, a Japanese cruise lasts for eight nights on board, visiting four ports and offering a chance to sample the sights and culture of this ancient country. Again Jeju in South Korea is the first port of call followed by two days at sea. In the evening of the fourth day of the cruise the ship arrives at the Japanese port of Yokohama. From there, excursions are organised to the museums and gardens of Tokyo. The next port of call is Kobe, and on the seventh day of the cruise the ship makes its final Japanese stop at the port of Beppu. The ship spends a day at sea before returning to Shanghai.

The rest of the year the Mariner of the Seas continues its programme of short cruises around the Far East, taking in sights including Malaysia, Hong Kong, Phuket and Bangkok. Not until May next year does the ship move to Houston in Texas for a new itinerary of seven-night western Caribbean cruises that take in Honduras, Belize, Mexico and the Mexican Island of Cozumel.

The Mariner of the Seas allows travellers to explore countries on the other side of the globe - without having to sacrifice any creature comforts. Royal Caribbean has loaded this ship with a dazzling choice of things to do see and eat, and in doing so has created a winning combination of culture, cuisine and cutting-edge cruising.


Plenty of on board amenities are likely to keep passengers out of their cabins for the majority of the day. The ship has a day spa and fitness centre, three swimming pools, six whirlpools and a beauty salon. Sports fans have plenty to keep them busy, from a nine-hole minigolf course and a golf simulator, to a basketball court and a rock climbing wall. An ice skating rink, skating tracks for jogging, and in-line skating completes the array of activities at sea. Plenty of after dinner entertainment is available in the five deck Savoy Show lounge, with Broadway-style productions and comedy shoes. Music cabaret and dancing is provided in the Lotus Lounge. There is also a TV studio, champagne bar, jazz bar, casino and the Viking Crown Lounge.


Built in 2004 the Mariner of the Seas is one of its Voyager Class ships. It was refitted this year to include the same features as its Oasis Class liners, retaining stunning design features. There are 15 passenger decks and 1,557 cabins. At 775, the fast majority of the 939 ocean view cabins have a private balcony. All of the ship's staterooms are air conditioned and have a flat screen TV, a telephone and fridge. All have a separate sitting area and all suites and deluxe staterooms have bathtubs in the bathrooms. Twin beds can be converted to make a queen size double.


A sweeping staircase connects the three levels of the main dining room, which can cater for 1,889 passengers in a single sitting. The recent refit ensured that there are more dining alternatives than ever on this Royal Caribbean ship. The Windjammer cafe provides hot and cold food and fabulous views. The Cafe Promenade is in the heart of the ship and serves anything from a quick coffee to a snack or pizza. A slice of Americana is offered at Johnny Rockets which has a diner theme, serving up old fashioned burgers and fries in a 1950s retro décor setting. Elegant alternatives for special occasions are the Portofino restaurant, for classical Italian cuisine, or the Chops Grill, where the finest cuts are served from a menu that changes daily.
