We are delighted to announce that our home for the 2019 On the Blue Cruise is the magnificent Royal Caribbean, Mariner of the Seas. This is one of our favorite ships for Music Festivals at Sea because it has not just one, but two, huge music venues inside the ship. No chance of rainout on the concerts you don’t want to miss! In addition, the Mariner is getting the biggest facelift in the history of Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. This is a stem to stern makeover of epic proportion…over $100 MILLION! Even better, they will be completing the renovation before we sail, giving us a pristine vessel for the kickoff of the inaugural On the Blue Cruise! From new restaurants and lounges to remodeled staterooms and onboard experience options, this ship will knock your socks off!
This Voyager-Class Ship also features the Royal Promenade, considered the center and heart of the ship. Spanning the length of Deck 5, this naturally lit, four-story boardwalk allows guests to stroll into restaurants and coffee bars, stop in to do some shopping and of course, grab a drink before the next show. Not to mention, this vibrant and exciting hub will connect On The Blue Cruisers to many of our Classic Rock Venues, including, not one, but Two Indoor Main Concert Venues to listen to the incredible line-up we have planned!
With so much to do on the Mariner of the Seas, you will never find yourself bored. Grab a boogie or surf board and catch a wave at the FlowRider Surf Simulator, take that workout to the next level and challenge yourself on the Rock Climbing Wall, soak in one of the many Hot Tubs and Pools throughout the ship, or sneak in some R&R and pamper yourself in the world-class Vitality at Sea Spa.
Launch yourself into a virtual world on a new bungee trampoline experience — Sky Pad or race down The Perfect Storm waterslides.
What about bars and dining? Whether you are just looking for a cocktail, have a tiki-chic rendezvous over rum punches in The Bamboo Room or bond over family-style Tuscan eats at Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver.…you will not be disappointed by the bar and dining options available on board.
This is going to be a “WOW” ship with some of the finest music and events featuring some of the greats in Classic Rock…what a show!
