- 5D4N cruise for 1 for $389 (up to $525 value)
Initially nabbing the title of ‘world’s largest cruise ship’ upon its birth in 1999, this 138,000-tonne behemoth (fittingly named the Mariner of the Seas ) sails the oceans fair whilst comfortably giving shelter to an upwards of three thousand guests and a veritable host of entertainment options, attractions, and on-board amenities. Staterooms scattered throughout the watercraft offer up chosen window vistas of aquatic surroundings – suite owners also nabbing bragging rights to their own private balconies – or sequester guests away from the elements in interior cabins complete with all the trappings of modern life and its daily conveniences.
Signature favourites from the cruise operator’s armada of ships accommodate daily adventure urges, with a selection of facilities including a basketball court, ice-skating rink, and mini-golf course; as well as a rock-climbing wall that overlooks the surrounding sea. Calmer stays aboard the ship are fulfilled with in-house spa services at Vitality Spa, or dips in the vessel’s collection of up to four swimming pools and six whirlpools; including the adults-only retreat of Solarium. Three-story dining halls afford ocean-wide views with servings of various cuisine fare, in addition to an assortment of eateries offering Asian fusion dishes, steakhouse and Italian favourites, and casual dining provisions of hamburgers and shakes at Johnny Rockets; while orders of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream wash down dessert desires.
Past dining necessities, the Mariner of the Seas also houses interior state room cabins fitted with flat screen televisions and ship-wide Wi-Fi access; family-oriented activities provide leisurely gatherings with little ones, enjoying attractions including the DreamWorks® Experience - an on-board cinema exclusively showcasing current animated blockbusters. Hours are whiled away with complimentary shows in the Main Theatre, where performers mount choreographed Broadway-inspired musical performances, as a chilled-out visual counterpart takes the form of ice-skating shows in Studio B, On the other hand, adults seeking to enjoy the ship’s brand of nightlife and merriment can sample the nightly flair of up to 15 clubs, bars, and lounges - accessible to passengers without cover charges; as well as the newly rebooted Casino Royale that pays tribute to Vegas-style stakes.
