Marner of the Seas Makes History Today at CocoCay

Recommended Posts

March 16, 2019.

Mariner of the Seas made history this morning by becoming the first ship to dock at the new pier at CocoCay.  

The ship docked in the dark and secured her lines following a brief pier test last week.  Last week’s brief pier trial docking occurred after the ship spent the day tendering guests to the island.  The ship spent a few minutes at the pier before continuing on with her regularly scheduled departure from Cococay.   

Today for the first time guests will disembark visiting CocoCay using the pier and experience a soft opening of a couple new Perfect Day features.  

This historic visit to CocoCay is occurring with fortunate timing for RoyalCarribeanBlog.com readers since it coincides with the blog group cruise involving dozens of blog followers led by @Matt and his family.

Still dark as I write this you know Matt and many others on the RoyalCaribbeanBlog group cruise will be posting about this historic event. 

If you don't already follow Matt both here on the blog and on social media today where he will be posting about this historic day in the life of CocoCay as it unfolds.







Pier construction will continue over the coming months to allow even larger ships including Quantum and Oasis class.

Yup..we are docked.  Laziness won and I didn't get up to go watch this morning.  Fell asleep at 4am at 8.8 kts, woke up to some vibration and couldn't shake the sleep and finally woke again 725am at 0.0kts.  Bowcam doesn't show much right now..and my bed is cozy...no clue what's happening outside.

Can't see much from the helipad...


They're hard at work at making the dock longer!


And it's pretty and clean...


Almost Perfect Day waterslides ?


I haven't attempted to leave or paid attention to announcements, so not sure what the towel check situation is.  Don't see it on the pier so I'm assuming everyone has to go to the pool deck for them?

This is why everyone should go on RoyalCariibeanBlog.com Groups cruises!


It is definitely a fun time.  The MEI folks take care of you and it's always great to run into a familiar face around the ship.  Me and @CGTLH played an impromptu game of laser tag this evenjngevening with from group cruise folks.
