Laser Tag

Ok so here is a mini review about the laser tag on the Mariner OTS. So this was my second time ever doing laser tag on a RCI ship. The first time I did it was back in 2018 on Mariner when she first got it right after dry dock. Now back then the line was very short. And when I say very short. I mean no line at all. But today there was about a twenty minute line to get in. So right after you walk into Studio B. You are greeted by your first look's of the Laser Tag area.GH010260_Moment.thumb.jpg.e155ceb197ecb01335f1234b16959492.jpg

Right after that they do make you sit down and wait on the team that is playing now to finish before you are let down to get your vest on and view the safety film. In this film they do a good job of telling you the rules and giving you the backstory about the game. GH010262_Moment.thumb.jpg.b339f6833a84530785956d433d3bcb4a.jpg

And the right before they let you out to play the commuter will automatically pick your team. The two teams are the aliens and the robots. And then right after that it is time to play!GH010262_Moment(2).thumb.jpg.2ac2d743639372a9715736562ac8cc05.jpg

The game last about five minutes. But the whole experience takes just over fifteen minutes to do. Overall it is a great fun thing to do onboard the ship. And a matter of fact I did it a second time after that!

So after laser tag I headed to the head to the helipad to see all the ships at night but at last I was a little bit to late. As the only ship left was the Bahamas paradise Grand Classica.

But right after I made it to the helipad. She blew her horn and was headed back to West Palm Beach.GH010266_Moment.thumb.jpg.6045d0ab4cebc58d4a4bd0a1b64c9cae.jpgGH010266_Moment(2).thumb.jpg.188ecafd4098e5d30422b8212b05b0ae.jpgGH010266_Moment(3).thumb.jpg.ef34c556f12c3e77951321be80ac5e06.jpg

And then right after watching the ship leave it was time to head to the diamond club. but on my way up to there I snapped a photo of skypad at night. IMG_0740.thumb.JPG.b06c37f5177191181e410f1bb31e246e.JPG

Sea Day Lunch

After the flowrider. I was very hungry and due to it being a seas day. The Main Dining Room is open for lunch. When you arrive in the dining room on deck three. they will take you to your seats and then you can order off the menu or go to the buffet. Here is a photo I took of the buffet at breakfast time but the set up is almost the same.IMG_0591.thumb.JPG.34203719d34900d474f1ae96f19d828c.JPG

One of the best parts about the buffet on the last day is the amount of dessert. They had two station's and one is for the chocolate fountain and the cakes and the other one is for the ice cream.

Off the menu I  got the Turkey club sandwich. It was super good and would see my self getting it again in the future.GH010283_Moment.thumb.jpg.c8afcc48196f0392f5fa20aaa7940fd6.jpg

And also off the menu. For dessert I got the Key Lime Pie.GH010285_Moment.thumb.jpg.bdeaa317ba1c3aeae298e3881a0e7e1e.jpg

Freeport

After lunch in the main dining room it was time for me to head around the ship and take some photos of Freeport. The first part of Freeport we passed was the drydock. In drydock that day was the regal princess and the carnival sensation.

And up close shot of the carnival sensation.

After you past the dry dock the cruise port is the next thing you see.

So after passing Freeport I headed up to the flowrider for the last runs of the cruise. well that only lasted half an hour due to the line being so long. I rode it once and then sat down. And five minutes after that they cut the line with one hour and thirty minutes left in the session! So after the session I headed to the DL and I was siting out on the back patio and one of the sports staff came over and asked if I wanted to be in the speed climb contest. Which I said yes. Well I won with a time of 49.49 seconds!! IMG_0805.thumb.JPG.54ed584a911232f875d38422191905a7.jpg.47b5386135023a24aca53b2f52298973.jpg

At 6:15pm It Was time for the last flowrider runs of the cruise. This was a private session that  one of my fellow flowrider friend booked.

@Jaymac Radio, I appreciate all of your time and efforts here. We are sailing the Mariner August 2020 for the first time with 2 stops at Coco Cay & looking forward to it even more (can't believe that is possible) due to following your journey! Thanks so much 🙂

Thank you so much @Neesa for following along! You guys will love the two stops at Coco Cay! I did that same cruise in October but I was on Navigator not mariner.
