We will periodically send emails if Royal holds any sales on the drink packages to help you save. Please see below for all the details regarding the drink packages and how to purchase them.

You can use your drink package at all bars and restaurants on the ship and in Cococay, Royal Caribbean’s private island.  We recommend to purchase your drink package in advance (at least 4 days prior to your sail date) to save more versus purchasing it on the ship. The price will be higher if purchased onboard, usually around $69 per guest, per night. This package includes: • Cocktails / Spirits / Liqueurs / Beer • Bottled still and sparkling water • Wines by the glass • Fresh squeezed juices / Non-alcoholic cocktails • Premium coffees and teas • Fountain sodas / Coca-Cola Freestyle® beverages • Coca-Cola® souvenir cup included An 18% gratuity charge will be added to the package price. Royal Caribbean requires all guests 21+ in the same cabin to purchase the Deluxe Beverage Package if at least one other person in their cabin has one. Royal Caribbean may provide an exemption to this rule (at their discretion) for guests that do not consume alcohol for personal, health or religious reasons. To arrange for an exemption, call Royal Caribbean at (800) 398-9819 and explain the situation.

Ship Info:

The newly renovated Mariner of the Seas stands ready to whisk you away for a great Spring Break getaway. Take the plunge down The Perfect Storm waterslide, test the waves on the newly added FlowRider surf simulator or spring yourself into a virtual world on the thrilling Sky Pad bungee trampoline experience. Enjoy family-style Tuscan specialties at Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver, delicious and artfully prepared Asian cuisine at Izumi, or the perfect steak at Chops Grill. Take in an ice show, treat yourself to a massage, relax over a handcrafted cocktail at the laid-back Bamboo Room, or cheer on your favorite team at Playmakers Sports Bar. This is the biggest, newest, and most action-packed ship that we’ve ever used for our Spring Break group cruises.
