After a long weekend of travel agent and media access, Mariner of the Seas will welcome guests for the first time on Monday, June 25, as it sets sail on a 4-night cruise to The Bahamas. The newly reimagined ship will continue to offer 4-night weekday and 3-night weekend itineraries from Miami, with visits to Nassau and CocoCay. Beginning May 2019, Mariner 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.

Along with the recently enhanced Independence of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas is part of Royal Caribbean’s $900 million commitment to reimagine its fleet through a new effort called Royal Amplified. The program spans 10 ships in four years.
