Default Who says the Mariner doesn't have a flowrider?

I heard people say that the Mariner of the Seas doesn't have a flowrider. However, I saw this video and isn't that one.

Default Wave pool not flow rider

The mariner has a wave pool but not a flow rider. A flow rider is a special place to surf.

You are right I was making a joke. I was a little alarmed at the word He, however.

It was like that this last week on the Mariner for us as well but they closed the pool. We were on the outskirts of Hurricane Ike and winds were 70 mph which qualifies as a Category I Hurricane. I have to admit, that video was funny

In September we hit the tail end of Ike and the water was up over the sides of the pool INTO the jacuzzi's up top.

There is no wave pool or flow rider on the Mariner. What we experienced was the ever so evasive "Hurricane Hill" lol..

The Freedom OTS as well as her sister ships the Liberty OTS and the Independence OTS. When the Oasis OTS comes out it will also have the flowrider.

So pretty much RCI signature thing is the rock climbing wall because I think all ships have that know. I know before that all their ships didn't have that before. The flow rider can't be their signature thing because every ship does not have that.

It should be interesting that The Oasis will have 2 flowriders & 2 rock climbing walls !!
By the way Kat, loved the video. We were on a cruise when it was like that. I couldn't believe how many parents were letting their kids go in. They did finally come out & close the pool.

It was a good cruise. We sat at the table with Coach Joe, if you google his name + Excellent and Exceptional, I'm sure you'll find the guy I'm talking about.

I never found myself bored onboard which seemed to be a problem on some Carnival ships and the RCCL line actually looks and feels like they thought about how to build a ship; the Mariner felt more like a resort than a ship.

In my opinion of course
