  1. Symphony is on her way to Spain for a technical dry dock in June 2021. Navigator of the Seas will head to Cadiz for dry dock in late July 2021. Odds are, Navigator will head to California post dry dock in September. Symphony heads to Cyprus in July 2021 for crew pickup before heading back stateside for September 2021 resumption. Looking at port bookings, Mariner looks to relocate to Miami to be RCG’s first ship back stateside come August. She will operate 3/4 night market until repositioning to Port Canaveral in October, at which point Freedom will take over 3/4 night cruises
  2. Hi all, This will be hubby and my first RCI cruise, this coming fall (assuming cruises do in fact sail.) My first two cruises were on Carnival, and he and I have both been on newer NCL and HAL cruises. For the longest time I've been wanting to try Allure of the Seas. I know Allure isn't so new anymore but I love all the pictures and reviews I've read. Just looking for lots of opinions, please. I've sort of eliminated this option, but not completely--- 9 nt. Anthem of the seas NYE cruise this Dec., out of NJ. We could drive up from VA and spend one night at hotel.
  3. Does anyone have experience with interior cabins 9329 or 9331? Wondering about noise level. Thanks
  4. I believe the suite class is worth it on Oasis-class ships. However, do you believe it is on Mariner? I know there is no Coastal Kitchen perk for Mariner and no priority seating for shows on Mariner. Does it just boil down to a larger room and the suite lounge (we are Diamond through Celebrity). What other advantages / perks can we look forward to by booking a Grand Suite on Mariner (versus a Junior Suite).?
  5. We hope that you and your family are remaining healthy and safe. We're reaching out to you with an important change to your upcoming Mariner of the Seas cruise. We've recently had to make some modifications to our itinerary planning which impacts Mariner of the Seas' October 2021 - April 2022 sailings. As a result, Mariner's departures have been revised and therefore, we've made adjustments to its itineraries. This means your clients' upcoming cruise has unfortunately been cancelled. We know how much time and effort go into planning your clients' vacation, and we're terribly sorry fo
  6. It's still a long way from July, 2022, but planning can never be done too early.
  7. My January 2022 Mariner sailing was cancelled and rebooked to another date . This happened a few weeks back. I have not received a revised invoice as yet. Just wondering if anyone else has received their new invoice? My TA is sooo slow to respond to me. Thanks.
  8. Was just rechecking rates on upcoming cruises and pleasantly surprised to receive a $314 price drop. Mariner 9/11/22 Balcony REFUNDABLE rate was $2,646 Now $2,332. Worth checking your bookings!
  9. Posted just now Has anyone sailed on this ship since it was refurbished and if so can you tell me what you think of this ship as far as food and entertainment.. I have booked a 50th high school reunion for April 2022.. thanks in advance..
  10. We have a 4 night on Indy booked for Dec 27-31, 2021. I have been checking my flight prices for this trip, and they're crazy high. So I started looking at alternative cruises. I found a 5 night on Mariner for Dec 31-Jan 4. It's a little higher in price than the Indy cruise, but the flights are much more reasonable for this cruise. Plus it has an extra night. The port is the same, the stops are the same. Extra cruise day with Mariner cruise. Pretty much the same room is available. Biggest con would be having to take a few days off work for DH and myself. DD will be good, she has an extra week o
  11. When I checked my Cruise Planner, it shows that my upcoming cruise is a 4 night charter cruise! Has anyone else seen this? Is this part of the redeployment even if it shows the cruise is still sailing on the original date but it is now a charter? Any information is very well received.
  12. Has anyone stayed in Cabin 1864 on the Mariner after the refurb? Is it a handicap accessible cabin? On the deckplan, it does not have the handicap symbol like #1814 does. #1864 looks so much larger than the other cabins but priced the same as the other spacious panoramic OVs. If you've stayed in this cabin and have pictures, would love to see them. Thanks!
  13. I know larger ships have Coastal Grill for suite dining. Does Mariner provide embarkation lunch in a specified restaurant for suite guests and also daily dining? Just curious - thank you!
  14. We are considering a 2022 cruise on Mariner of the Seas because we especially like the itinerary. Thing of it is, we haven't been on Mariner since one of its earliest sailings out of Port Canaveral years ago. Has anybody sailed on Mariner just before the big cruise close downs? Has it undergone any major renovations, design changes,improved amenities or such in recent years in an effort to be more like Royal's newer ships?
  15. Just reading this article based on one of Chris’s blogs and it suggests that Navigator and Mariner will be first for US. Of course Quantum will be starting next month as well. Do we have any other sources to corroborate the US sailings? https://cruiseradio.net/royal-caribbean-crew-member-things-are-starting-to-happen/
  16. Curious as to the "view" of this classification. We have booked stateroom 1852 which is front-facing. Is there a walkway going in front of this type of stateroom. I have looked at images available of the forward area of the ship; however, not having any luck. Thanks!
  17. Oddly, the Royal app shows my Nov 2 cruise on Mariner as being cancelled. The website says it's still on. I'm so confused.
  18. Does anyone know if Royal now plans on opening bookings for Mariner of the Seas departing Nov 6th & 9th 2020?
  19. I'm not going to do a full review - But I thought I'd post a paragraph of our experience, answer any questions and maybe post a few pictures from the trip. This was our 4th annual 2nd cruise of the year, road trip to Port Canaveral. These road trip cruises, during hurricane season are an addition to our annual cruise around our anniversary in late April/early May. Two on Majesty, one on Enchanment, and now have done Mariner. The cruise also timed with "The Pirates reunion cruise" A bunch of people who sailed Mariner together this time of year when she was in Port
  20. Welcome to my review! I usually write very detailed day by day reviews...and likely will end up doing the same here...everyone might just be amazed with how much I can write about a 3-night cruise...but if you have read any of my previous reviews...then you won't be surprised at all. DH and I have a newly empty nest. DS went off to college this past September. He's a "fresher" at the Royal Academy of Music. Anyone who read my Alaska review may remember that he is a composer...we had moved to Winston-Salem, NC for him to attend the high school program at UNC School of the Arts for
  21. Currently have 5 night Freedom Bermuda cruise booked for next summer. Currently have 4 night Mariner Perfect Day cruise booked for this summer. Coming with our kids (12 and 16 next summer). They don't use the kids clubs but enjoy the ships activities. We've been on Mariner but we keep missing the amplified CoCo Cay. (We have 2 other cruises with it, but who knows if we'll make those). Never been to Bermuda or on Freedom. We will either cancel Mariner OR Lift & Sift to next summer and cancel Freedom. Trying to decide what to do so have a few ques
  22. So I booked the mariner for 2021, hopefully the cruises will be back up.... we have only sailed oasis class ships and I wanted to get other cruisers opinion that have sailed on the mariner....I know this ship is smaller and won't have the neighborhoods but is there a big difference on the smaller ships? Like for instance can you feel the waves more on the smaller ships? For those that sailed mariner please give me your thoughts.....
  23. Mariner of the Seas chartered by High Seas Rally for October 22-29 2021. It was cancelled today from Brilliance December 3-10, 2020.
  24. Hello Everyone And Welcome To Another Not Live Trip Blog. This Cruise I Booked In February And Well Originally I Was Going To Sail On The Week Of The Sixth But Due To The Price I Moved It To The Week Of The 13th. On This Sailing I Am Doing A Four Night Cruise Back To Coco Cay, And Nassau And A Sea Day. Without Further Delay Let The Blog Begin!!
  25. My husband is pretty mellow about everything except for smoke smells. He is an ex-smoker and I was never a smoker, so neither one of us want to stay in a cabin that stinks or deal with a lot of smoke around the common areas of the ship. The renovation may have changed some things, but in the Youtube video I saw, they showed smokers in one section of the Lido deck. I'm intrigued by this ship and would love your opinions. The idea of a short 4 day cruise from Port Canaveral seems quite accessible for us in several ways. Thanks in advance for any info/advice/wild rants or raves
