Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas Review - Day 1

My boyfriend and I are all for a fuss-free itinerary — so, getting on board a cruise is very suitable for both of us. He knows that I love anything that has to do with water, so this time he surprised me when he booked a cruise on my birthday month. It's our second time on a cruise (coincidentally, the exact same cruise), but the experience was still as wonderful. Previously, I shared about the "All Access Ship Tour Review at The Royal Caribbean Cruise".

 Complimentary foot analysis


Head over to the gym as they have several complimentary health checks (e.g. spine checks or foot analysis). A trained personnel is there to access your current health status and he or she would advise you on the right products. Fortunately, my foot scan was pretty good and I don't need any products!

 Rock Climbing on a Cruise

I've done rock climbing before but it's a lot harder on a cruise. Each pebble is pretty shaky and because the cruise is moving, somehow that movement is amplified while trying to lift yourself up. The cool thing about this wall is that no one is there to belay you — my life depended on an automated rope which somehow slows down the fall.  That knowledge was pretty thrilling albeit scary too!

Buffet Options: Food at Windjammer's

There were several food options but our favourite was at Windjammer's — the menu is decided by the head chef based on the nationalities of the people on board. At the time of sailing, there were a lot of indians on board so we got to enjoy stellar indian cuisine such as paratha, dosai, curries and paneer. There was also mexican, western, chinese and singaporean/malaysian cuisine so we never got bored of it. There were some hits and misses— but with so much options available, you can surely find one that satisfies your tastebuds.

Mariner of the Seas: Ice Under The Big Top Review


Exclusive to the Mariner of the Seas is “Ice Under the Big Top”, a circus-themed ice skating show which features an international award-winning cast. As the first in the world to introduce an ice skating rink at-sea, the cast performs dangerous stunts that deserves a standing ovation. One of the skaters swung so low that her head was only a few centimetres away from the floor.
