I prefer the DL location on Mariner.

I’m biased. I have rooms booked near the forward elevators so easier to go down for a latte in the morning or grab a drink on the way to/from dinner!

What is that tall tower with the giant spring next to the waterslide stairs? Is it something for communication or wifi?  TY. :classic_biggrin:

^ pretty good use of that space.

 

From an esthetic and room decor perspective the new DL or "Club" as they call it is nicer on deck 5.  Star Lounge as overflow is bigger than VCL and potentially easier to police for card inspections. 

 

Forgetting location for a moment the new DL (or DC) is nicer with more seating.  It does lack the views that the old DL or current SL has but it is more convenient on deck 5.  Aft port elevators won't be crazy busy at 4-6pm anymore either.  

 

I like it.

Hey @twangster, thanks for the videos!

 

Can you confirm smoking areas on Deck 4/5? I had heard it's on the Port side now, rather than Starboard. Is that accurate?

 

Port side is smoking on deck 4.

Really, the old Connoisseur Club has more seating than the Mariner DL in Viking Crown?  That surprises me, because I was just in the Connoisseur Club (now card/game room) on Adventure, and it seemed smaller that the DL in Viking Crown.

In the VCL DL there is seating for around 30, less on M ariner if I recall.  The 'Club' on Navigator deck 5 has seating for 34.  Not a huge difference.  

 

Here is Adventure's DL after her makeover.  The windows may create a feeling of a larger space.

A closer look at the resort style pools

 

 

 

Thank you.  I assume they are still salt water?  That didn’t change with the update correct?

I've really enjoyed all the videos thank you!  I'm sailing on NAVIGATOR this Sunday.  One thing I'm really curious about is the gym and spa.  The gym has been moved aft, and the spa looks much smaller.  I'm guessing no more complimentary steam/sauna either.

I'm anxious to see the gym too! Did it open yet? I hope it's all in order for our 3/15 sailing.

Looking forward to trying the new Laser Tag onboard.

 

The water slides look neat, but obviously for the kiddy/younger family audience (which is OK). Of course...I'll be trying those as well once...as I did iFly, FlowRider, Zip Line, Rock Climb, and other new things on RCI ships so that I can brag I did them (and survived)... 🤣
