We are delighted to announce that our home for the 2023 Monsters of Rock Cruise is Royal Caribbean’s magnificent 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 will be headed to Dry Dock right before our sailing for a quick facelift just in time for our guests to embark.
We know our guests have absolutely loved the last few years aboard Royal Caribbean ships that feature the Royal Promenade. This is truly the center and heart of the ship, spanning the entire length of Deck 5. This naturally lit, four-story boardwalk allows guests to stroll into restaurants and cafés, stop in to do some shopping and of course, grab a drink before the next show. Not to mention, this vibrant and exciting hub connects Monsters of Rock Cruisers to many of our Concert Venues, including, not one, but TWO Indoor Main Concert Venues to experience the lineup of shows we have planned! And of course…the Pool Stage is back again!
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 will once again be a “WOW” ship with some of the finest public spaces, bars and restaurants at sea. Paired with incredible Monsters of Rock Cruise music and events…2023 will knock it out of the park once again! We look forward to hosting you aboard.
