    Ports

    ATHENS (PIRAEUS), GREECE

    Cradle of European Civilization 
    You could spend a lifetime in Europe’s oldest city and still not see everything it has to offer. Settled over 3,500 years ago, Athens is like a mythological crossroads of the past and present, where modern buildings share the skyline with spectacular ruins like the Parthenon.

    For an archaeological walk, make your way to Vasilissis Amalias Street, winding through the heart of the ancient city. The route leads to landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, Arch of Hadrian, and of course, the Acropolis.

    After all that, you’re probably going to work up quite an appetite. So, head to the Central Market for fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese like feta, graviera, or aged kefalotyri. Snacking is not a bad idea since Athenians usually don’t head out for dinner until at least 9 p.m.

    And if you need a little extra pick-me-up to make it that late, have a frappe, a Greek creation of strong iced coffee with milk and sugar. Additionally, neighborhoods like Pangrati, Exarhia, and Petralona feature fantastic tavernas where you can rub elbows with the locals while dining on the sidewalk well into the wee hours of the night.

    SANTORINI, GREECE

    Gem of The Aegean
    It’s been said the sunset from Oia, on the island of Santorini, is the most beautiful in the world, but you don’t have to wait until dusk to see your share of postcard-worthy views, Santorini is stunning any time of day.

    The capital, Fira, clings to the rim of the caldera 900 feet above the sea. Take the cable car or, if you’re looking for a more authentic experience, giddy up on a donkey to climb the 588 zigzagging steps to the top. The white cobblestone streets bustle with shops, tavernas, and cafes, perfect for sampling the tomatoes and white eggplant for which Santorini is renowned.

    If you’re feeling ambitious, hike to nearby Oia, a quintessential Greek village. Plan your day accordingly to enjoy a glass of Vinsanto (a sweet, strong dessert wine) as the sun sinks into the sea.

    To end the day, drive by black, white, and red volcanic beaches and head south to the 3,500-year-old Minoan town Akrotiri. Often called Greece’s answer to Pompei, the well-preserved ruins provide a glimpse into Santorini’s storied (and explosive) past

    RHODES GREECE

    Island of the Knights
    The island of Rhodes offers a stunning combination of sea, sand, and sights. With more than 300 days of sunshine per year, and over 10,000 years of history, you’ll find plenty to tickle your fancy here.First on your agenda should be the picture-perfect city of Rhodes, one of the best-preserved medieval cities in all of Europe. With its combination of sandstone buildings, the cobblestoned Street of the Knights, and charming turreted buildings, it’s no wonder this is such a popular UNESCO World Heritage Site.And speaking of wonders, next up on your magical history tour is the Rhodes waterfront, where once stood the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Although the nearly 100-feet statue of Helios, the Greek god of sun, was destroyed in an earthquake around 250 BC, you can imagine what it must have been like to arrive in this harbor thousands of years ago.Just a short ride away, the medieval town of Lindos features ruins like the 4th-century BC temple of Athena Lindia, the castle of the Knights of Saint John, and stacked-like giant sugar cubes on a steep hill. Hitch a donkey ride to the acropolis for spectacular views of the town and Saint Paul’s Bay.
     

    EPHESUS (KUSADASI), TURKEY

    An age-old civilization
    We could chat about the resort town of Kusadasi and its beaches and restaurants, or nearby places like Dilek Peninsula National Park, but let’s talk Ephesus, once the second largest city in the Roman Empire, eclipsed only by Rome.There’s the Library of Celsus –still magnificent almost 2,000 years later–, the Odeon, and the 24,000-capacity Great Theatre, where St. Paul used to preach. Stretching from this jaw-dropping amphitheater to the harbor is the marble-made Arcadian Street. Also, stroll past the marketplaces, colonnades, and the fields of wild fennel, and into bath complexes that once offered piped-in hot water and sauna.Surrounding Ephesus, the sites are equally spellbinding. Explore the ruins of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; the Basilica of St. John, which stands over the believed burial site of John the Apostle; and the House of Virgin Mary, where Mary is supposed to have spent her last days.

    PATMOS, GREECE

    Holy Island 
    The tiny island of Patmos is a place of deep importance for Christianity. It’s where the last book of the New Testament was allegedly written, and where an air of mystery still hangs over the island, like the misty fog that seems to be ever-present just off the shore.Visit the ominous-sounding Cave of the Apocalypse, where John the Apostle stayed after Domitian exiled him in AD 95. Look up at the ceiling to see the crack where Jesus appeared to him and inspired him to write the Book of Revelations.Fast-forward to 993 years in history by visiting the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian, found by Saint Christodoulou in honor of Saint John. The massive monastery still stands guard over Patmos town to this day.Then, make the pilgrimage back to Skala (where all roads on the island seemingly lead). Find a lush Tamarisk tree to lounge beneath and indulge on a picnic of local delicacies like fresh octopus and savory cheese pie. Be on the lookout for celebrities, too, since folks like Richard Gere and Bono have all been spotted here, perhaps in search of their own divine inspiration.

    MYKONOS, GREECE (OVERNIGHT)

    Picture-postcard destination
    Mykonos looks like a scene straight from a postcard: whiter-than-white houses with brilliant blue shutters, vibrant bougainvillea, and a beautiful blue harbor drenched in warm sunlight. Iconic 16th century Venetian windmills stand in a row, their paddles spinning in the wind, and the district of Little Venice, which rises like a brightly colored wall coming out of the sea.But beneath the idyllic scenery, Mykonos is vibrant and cosmopolitan, with a penchant for all-night parties and hedonistic good times. By day, stroll along the maze-like cobblestone streets, exploring artists’ shops and enjoying a couple of glasses of ouzo.As soon as the sun goes down, it’s time to let loose. Known as “the Ibiza of Greece”, Mykonos has a serious party scene that’s not for the faint of heart.Mykonos is also a perfect jumping off point for Delos. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the uninhabited island is said to be the birthplace of the twin deities Apollo (god of the sun) and Artemis (goddess off the moon). So, it’s little wonder so many flock to worship the sun by day, and dance beneath the moon at night.

    Ports

     

    Oranjestad, Aruba

    Oranjestad, ArubaLocated on the picturesque southern coast, Oranjestad is the historic Dutch capital of Aruba, where the traditional, tall, multicolored houses combine carved wooden doors and typical Dutch tiles with open-air patios. The charm of the city complements the beauty of this popular Caribbean island where the Dutch and indigenous cultures have merged to give Aruba its unique atmosphere. Today's visitors can enjoy this culture along with beautiful beaches, excellent snorkeling and exciting nightlife.

     

    Willemstad, Curacao

    Willemstad Harbor, CuracaoCuracao is the largest of the six islands that comprise the Netherlands Antilles. It gained autonomy from the Netherlands in 1954, but the Dutch influence is still very visible in Willemstad's architecture and culture. With the growth of the oil industry in Curacao in the early 20th century, workers and their families came to the island from more than 50 countries, providing a varied and vibrant population. Everyone should experience the sights, sounds and energy of this unique destination. You'll feel as if you are in Amsterdam, not on a Caribbean island.

    Ports

    RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil

    The Marvelous City

    Samba on down to Rio, famous for its dramatic landscape and beach culture. It is usually quite easy going, except for the four days of its feather-festooned Carnival.

    From the summits of Sugarloaf and Corcovado, take in breathtaking views of a magnificent bay set against a mountain backdrop. Check out the activity at one or two of the 23 beaches, crowded with sunbathers, swimmers, surfers, and bikers.

    For lunch or dinner, pull up a chair at a churrascaria and dine on the delicious grilled meat of your choice, washed down with a caipirinha, the national cocktail.

    No journey to Rio would be complete without a visit to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer). At the top of the Corcovado Mountain, towering high above the city below, this 125-foot tall statue of Jesus Christ spreads its arms over Rio and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Guanabara Bay.

     

    COPACABANA BEACH, Brazil

    Hottest spot north of Havana

    Often referred to as “the world’s most famous beach”, Copacabana is a slice of Brazilian paradise. It extends along the residential area of Rio de Janeiro for almost three spectacular miles. And with its combination of lush jungle-clad mountains, historic buildings, lively restaurants and bars, and sun-tanned bodies as a beautiful backdrop, it’s like no other beach on earth.

    New Year’s Eve at Copa is second only to the Carnival in the ranks of Rio’s highly developed party culture. Aboard the Desire Rio de Janeiro Cruise, we will welcome the New Year with explosions of color and light. Stunning fireworks will lighten up the sky at the stroke of midnight, as we celebrate the first day of 2021 in the most seductive way.

    The wearing of auspicious colors is also a New Year’s local custom: white for luck, green for good health, yellow and gold for prosperity, and blue for peace. So, color coordinate accordingly for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve with us.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: We will not be disembarking at this port, we will be enjoying the festivities, fireworks, special New Year’s Eve dinner, show, and performances from the ship. We will be navigating at 2:00 a.m. on January 1st, 2023.

     

    PUNTA DEL ESTE, Uruguay

    City with An Artistic Soul

    Fashionable Punta del Este is one of the world’s most appealing seaside resorts. Fashionable cafes and shops line the streets, and an evening harbor-front stroll will no doubt include a serenade by street musicians and entertainers. Gorlero Street is the main street, where you will find a bulk of Punta del Este’s prime attractions, it is about 10 blocks long and easily walkable. Be sure and keep your eyes peeled as you never know who you might see stroll by, it is a popular hotspot for the famous during this time of year.

    The town projects an artsy vibe, with a contemporary museum and the Brava Beach open-air sculpture park displaying large works in steel, concrete, wood, iron, and marble. Don’t miss out on the photo opportunity with The Hand, a sculpture depicting five gigantic fingers coming out of the sand. Then, visit the fascinating Casa Pueblo, home of artist Carlos Paez Vilaros, a dazzling white fantasy on a hillside overlooking the town.

    After a day out, it’s time to get the party started. Punta del Este is best enjoyed for its nightlife. Day parties start around 5:00 p.m., long dinners with cocktails flowing around start at 10:00 p.m., and the clubs and bars last long past sunrise.

     

    MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay

    Vibrant & eclectic seaside city

    Montevideo exudes European charm and elegance, with broad boulevards, fountains, stately squares, and irresistible sidewalk cafes.

    The city maintains a low-key atmosphere despite its position as Uruguay’s commercial and political hub, and there are few skyscrapers on the horizon, though there are some surprising contrasts such as an Art Nouveau pedestrian mall, an Art Deco Centenary Stadium, and an American Embassy designed by IM Pei. Most of the nation’s countryside is farm or ranchland, and the life of the cowboy, or gaucho is part of the local lore.

     

    BUENOS AIRES, Argentina

    The Paris of South America

    Welcome to elegant, cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, with its European colonial architecture and colorful mix of cultures. Each district has its own style: enjoy Palermo, with its mansions and parks; shop in the chic boutiques of Soho and Hollywood; and soak up the Italian flavor of La Boca, where tango dancers and artists display their talents for passersby.

    A visit to Buenos Aires is not complete without a visit to the National Museum of Fine Arts. It is not only a unique experience, but one of the oldest and most respected attractions in the city. From classic to controversial, you will find works from extraordinary artists such as Van Gogh, Degas, Monet, and Picasso.

    Be sure to squeeze in a visit to Colon Theater, one of the most important opera houses in the world. Performances on this stage have shaped its world-renowned prestige. The exceptional acoustic and architectural conditions of this building place it withing the top 10 theaters worldwide.

    The spectacular Puente de la Mujer (Spanish for Woman’s Bridge), inspired by tango, is a rotating footbridge that was designed by Santiago Calatrava. The white mast symbolizing the man, and the curve of the bridge, the woman. This footbridge is one of the most famous landmarks in the neighborhood of Puerto Madero.

    You and your partner can witness much of the city’s history from the balconies of Casa Rosada, from which Juan and “Evita” Perón addressed the masses during the late 40s and early 50s. Dominating Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada (the Pink House) is the seat of the Argentine national government and houses the president’s office.Finally, top off the perfect day with an Argentine steak, perfectly grilled over a fire of glowing coals, and wash it down with an excellent glass of Malbec.

    Stay tuned for information on hotels and activities the night before the cruise.

    Ports

    Georgetown, Grand Cayman

    George Town cruise port is located on the island of Grand Cayman, which is the largest of the Cayman Islands. Grand Cayman has the glitz and glam you might expect from a city known for its finance district, but the island is also home to tropical Caribbean attractions such as caves, forests, pristine white sandy beaches and crystal clear blue ocean waters. These two sides of the island: the finance and the beach - give Georgetown a beautifully vibrant atmosphere unlike any other Caribbean cruise island. Enjoy swimming and feeding wild stingrays! These beautiful creatures are harmless, making them the most loved tourist attractions on the Grand Cayman.

    Ocho Rios, Jamaica

    Ocho Rios is a port town on the north coast of Jamaica. A former fishing village, it's now a resort with a cruise ship harbor and a busy bay beach that's lined with hotels. The surrounding parish of Saint Ann is home to rainforest, rivers and waterfalls. Dunn's River Falls is a terraced, 180m mountain waterfall with lagoon pools, surrounded by trees. Many visitors to Ocho Rios enjoy a hike up Dunn's River Falls where you'll pass through a series of limestone steps hidden beneath the rushing water. Stop along the way for a dip in one of the falls' clear, terraced pools.

    Ports

    Venice Italy
    Queen of the Adriatic

    A mecca for hopeless romantics, Venice is also known as The Floating City, City of Bridges, and City of Masks. This breathtaking port attracts roughly 22 million visitors a year, and you can quickly see why it is a unique city, unlike any other.

    To truly discover its essence, take a stroll with your partner and lose yourselves in the cobblestone streets, alleys, and bridges. Experience seduction in every sense of the word by venturing to St. Mark’s Square and the Basilica, or by taking a gondola ride along the Grand Canal.

    Sibenik, Croatia
    The Croatian City of Culture

    Located just 55 miles north of Split, the city of Šibenik is where the River Krka meets the Adriatic. This city is known for its diversity of international influences, particularly evident in the old part of town, with its many churches, palaces, and Dalmatian houses, as well in the city’s stone walls and four fortresses. Šibenik is a major wine producing region, so be sure to take time to explore it.

    Dubrovnik, Croatia
    The Pearl of the Adriatic

    George Bernard Shaw once said: “Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik to find it.” And indeed, paradise can be found behind the massive stone walls that protect winding streets, charming squares, and red-roofed buildings dating back to the 7th century.

    To discover why this city has been deemed the pearl of the Adriatic, walk along the walls themselves to capture wow-worthy photos while enjoying the backdrops of the popular hit series Game of Thrones.

    Kotor, Montenegro
    The Medieval City

     Don’t be surprised if you and your partner leave a piece of your heart in Kotor. The entire city is surrounded by stone, both in the imposing Mount Saint John and in the city’s towering ancient walls, creating a cozy feeling of protection when you walk the cobblestone streets. Speaking of the streets, they are in a maze-like arrangement; be prepared to take a wrong turn or two, but all lead you back to the city’s main entrance marked by the 16th century Sea Gate.

    If you are up for a challenge, take a hike to the top of the upper town walls that stand nearly 3 miles above the city. You will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the entire city and bay.

    Amalfi, Italy
    The Land of Limoncello

    There’s a reason they named it one of the most stunning coastlines in the world. In Amalfi, “La Vita e Bella”. It’s also one of the largest towns in the region, so take your time to explore it.

    Rub shoulders with the Italian elite as you walk the pedestrian streets, stopping into shops and galleries. Drop into a bar and order the drink the region is best known for: limoncello. When you get it, make sure that it has been chilled. Limoncello, like revenge, is best served cold!

    Sorrento, Italy
    Gateway of Capri

    If you genuinely want to explore Sorrento, you’re going to have to travel vertically. Most of the town is set up on the cliffs, so to get to the top, you can hop on a minibus, take the lift, or go on a short but steep hike.

    Looking out from Sorrento, in the Gulf of Naples, is the isle of Capri. Well known for its sparkling Blue Grotto, it’s the playground of the rich and famous, and easily reached via a short hydrofoil. The island is divided into two main parts, Capri and Anacapri. With designer stores lining the streets, Capri is full of Italian luxury, while Anacapri is slightly more down-to-earth. Get ready to see what jaw-droppingly gorgeous views await you.

    Rome, Italy
    The Eternal City

    Whether you daydream about fighting with gladiators in the Coliseum or debating with togaed senators in the Forum, that you toss a coin in the fabled Trevi fountain, or that you are awestruck by the magnificence of St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s masterpieces, Rome has something special to offer all couples, living up to its sobriquet as the Eternal City.

    Onboard

    The fifth ship in Royal Caribbean's popular Voyager class, the Mariner of the Seas carries an impressive 3,114 passengers. It’s also the first time many of our vibrant and youthful-inspired spring passengers will get to experience “The Promenade.”

    The Promenade is designed to emulate an upscale European street scene, lined with shops, bars, and a 24-hour cafe (a great venue to snack and people watch). Featuring atmospheric lighting which changes color throughout the day and night, quirky art features and sculptures, the area is also a hive of activity from appearances by the DreamWorks characters during the exciting DreamWorks parade, which includes live music and entertainment like a 70's Dancing in the Street disco party.

    The Promenade also hosts a variety of Bliss Cruise Meet & Greets, Bliss Cruise evening themed dance parties, Royal Caribbean Random Acts of Entertainment, and more. It’s the scene of all "lifestyle scenes" (traditionally offered in past November sailings) but we’re swinging with it into the 2024 spring sailing.

    The Mariner of the Seas has 3 clothing-optional decks by the Main Pool. There are two pool areas; the Main Pool area, and the Solarium. Both pool areas are located on Deck 11 and both feature clothing-optional fun (except when in Freeport, Bahamas).

     

    Forward on Deck 11 is the Solarium pool. During the day, couples find intimacy without the noise and can share conversations with new friends.

    Overnight, and new for 2024, we convert the exterior portion of the Solarium into an additional playroom for our passengers. If you ever wanted to "play under the stars" and without the wind, now is your chance. If the exterior play area is not your style, we also offer a variety of playrooms designed for couples-only, and other playrooms that are accessible to all passengers for fun.
