Royal Caribbean International revealed that the Mariner of the Seas will have a bungee-bounce attraction and a Polynesian-themed bar among several new features.

Royal Caribbean is spending $90 million on a six-week renovation of the 3,114-passenger Mariner, which will sail three- and four-day cruises from Miami.

The bungee trampoline experience, called the Sky Pad, can be enjoyed with or without a virtual-reality headset. Guests wearing the headset will be "transported to another time and planet to bounce over moon craters or compete in intergalactic games."

The Bamboo Room will serve cocktails in a "retro lounge with tiki-chic decor."

The Polynesian-themed bar, a concept new to Royal Caribbean, will be called The Bamboo Room. "The retro lounge will heat up the ship's already vibrant nightlife scene with its tiki-chic decor," Royal Caribbean said.

There will be a glow-in-the-dark laser tag experience in Studio B, where friends and family can team up to play "Battle for Planet Z."

Puzzle Break: The Observatorium will be an escape room, a problem-solving game where participants work together to find hidden clues and solve a series of riddles to unravel a mystery.  

Other new features: a FlowRider surfing simulator and a duo of racing water slides called Cyclone and Typhoon.

The Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, which will debut on Symphony of the Seas in April, will also be on the Mariner. Other new restaurants on the Mariner will be Jamie's Italian and Izumi Hibachi & Sushi. Like other Royal Caribbean ships, the Mariner will have a Starbucks.

Starting in June, the Mariner will become the largest ship in Miami's short-cruise market. It will visit Nassau and Royal Caribbean's private island CocoCay, where a pier is being added to accommodate the large ship.
