YES! The only requirements are you must be open-minded, fun loving and you must want to enjoy life! You will fit right in whether you are a motorcycle person or not. At our rally FUN is #1! Think of us as a melting pot of “fun-atics” from all bike brands, clubs, and groups from all over the world.

Due to space limitations and cruise line regulations, we cannot allow guests to bring bikes on the ship. It is the people that make this rally, not the bikes, so kick back and just enjoy being with a bunch of motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world in the best setting possible – a cruise ship! You will see bikes on display and many ports have bike rentals available.

The Mariner of the Seas has a variety of accessible cabins in numerous cabin categories. To review current availability, please contact our office at 844.279.8460 Monday-Friday 9:00AM – 5:00PM CT.

Book & Manage Your Reservation

Reservations can be made online HERE or by contacting our office at 844.279.8460 Monday-Friday 9:00AM – 5:00PM CT.

You are welcome to use a travel agent to make your reservation; however, we do not pay agents commission on High Seas Rally.

If you need any help selecting the best cabin for you, please give us a call at 844.279.8460 or email info@highseasrally.com. Our reservation specialists are standing by to answer any questions you have.. There are four main cabin types: Inside, Ocean View, Balcony and Suites.

Inside cabins are the lowest priced and smallest in size. There is plenty of room but they do not have a window to the outside. Inside cabins are ideal for those with no motion illness/sickness issues, are sailing on a budget, or plan to spend little time in their room.

Ocean View cabins are very similar to the inside staterooms but offer a porthole or window (that does not open) to view the outside. This may help those who are susceptible to motion sickness or want to see some natural light in their cabin.

Balcony cabins are larger and offer spectacular views and direct access to the warm Caribbean air. If you have never seen the Caribbean waters, felt the warm air on your face or let the sound of the ocean put you to sleep at night, this cabin is a must. Your cabin includes a private balcony with table and two chairs waiting for you to enjoy the sunset with a cocktail in hand.

Suites are the biggest cabin type on the ship. They also have bigger balconies and separate seating areas. They also come with a variety of amenities and services that are not available to those in different cabin types.

You can view detailed descriptions of all cabins HERE.

Sometimes we are asked what part of the ship is the best. The answer depends on what you are looking for. The Mariner of the Seas is a big ship so it does not rock very much but we are sailing on the high seas so it will move a little. Some people want to feel the ship movement, others want to feel like they are on dry land so here are a couple of tips:

  • The smoothest ride is found in the middle of the ship on lower decks.
  • The side of the ship does not matter. Different ports dock on different sides so there is no “land facing” or “ocean facing” side. When we are at sea, everything is ocean facing!
  • If you want to limit your walking, pick a cabin near the elevators or if you want to get your exercise every day, pick a cabin further away.

Our reservation team is happy to answer any questions you might have so please give us a call at 844.279.8460.

Once a reservation is made, you can view your reservation HERE. If you need to make changes to your reservation (change cabin, update payment information, add or remove a guest, correct contact information, cancel your reservation) please contact a Reservation Specialist Monday-Friday 9:00AM – 5:00PM CT at 844.279.8460 or by emailing info@highseasrally.com. All reservation cancellation requests must be made by contacting our office. Changes made to an existing reservation within 120 days of sailing are subject to a $150 manifest change fee.

Pre-Cruise Details

High Seas Rally embarks from Port Canaveral on Saturday, October 29, 2022, at 4:00PM ET. All guests are required to select a boarding window during the online check-in process (starting 45 days prior to the cruise). Boarding the day of the cruise typically begins by 11:30AM ET, and all guests must be onboard no later than 3:00PM ET.

Unless you reside near Port Canaveral, we recommend guests arrive the day prior to the cruise. on the day of disembarkation, November 5, 2022, the ship is scheduled to arrive back in Port Canaveral at 7:00AM ET. Due to the time it takes to clear Customs and Immigration it is difficult to estimate the exact time you will be able to depart the ship. To be safe, we do not recommend any flights scheduled prior to 12:00PM ET.

Guests are not allowed to bring beer or hard liquor onboard. On boarding day, guests may bring onboard two (2) 750 ml bottles of wine or champagne per stateroom in their carry-on luggage. If guests wish to enjoy the wine or champagne they brought onboard in dining or bar venues, a corkage fee will apply.

Guests may bring non-alcoholic beverages as carry-on items on boarding day. Non-alcoholic beverages may not exceed 12 standard (12 oz.) cans, bottles or cartons per stateroom. Distilled water brought on for medical or dietary use are permitted.

All guests are highly encouraged to complete the online check-in process with Royal Caribbean at least 3 days prior to sailing. Further details as to how and when to complete the check-in process will be communicated via email as we approach the cruise date.

After you make your reservation, you will receive a Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Reservation Number. Once you have this number, you will have access to Royal Caribbean’s “Cruise Planner.” Check HERE to view available packages for purchase including dining packages, shore excursions, Wi-Fi and more!

Once Onboard

The moment you step onboard you are greeted by staff and will receive a Souvenir Program that will outline the schedule for the week. Each day, you will also receive a daily schedule with all the details for the day’s activities.

One of the great things about High Seas Rally is that guests can dine at any time they wish, however most guests choose to dine opposite of their show time. Guests do not need to make reservations to dine in the Main Dining Room, however they are suggested for the Specialty Restaurants.

We encourage guests to take as many pictures and video as they wish. At times we may ask guests to refrain from taking photos and videos during some shows due to talent requests. We also have a professional photo/video team on board. They will make photos from the main shows available for free HD download on our website after the cruise.

The dress code on High Seas Rally is super casual. As long as you are wearing clothes and shoes, you are accepted anywhere, anytime. Jeans and T-shirts are more than welcome!

We are committed to hosting an event that is open to all motorcycle enthusiasts and we strive to make our sailings enjoyable for all. While we do not expressly prohibit the wearing of colors, we feel the community nature of our cruises makes the wearing of colors unnecessary. However, if you and/or your club choose to wear your colors, it is ok to do so as long as the clothing does not contain nudity, profanity, or other offensive content as determined by the High Seas Rally team. High Seas Rally does reserve the right to require its guests to remove any clothing that fall outside these guidelines. If you have any doubt about your group logo or colors being questionable, please ask us BEFORE wearing it on the ship.

Now that we are past this, we do think our crew members will be much more comfortable in light clothing, T-shirts, etc., as the sun always shines on the High Seas Rally!

One of the exciting elements of High Seas Rally is our theme nights! Most nights we transform the ship into a different theme with parties and other activities to go along. Feel free to participate or just watch, either way it is a great time. Check out the 2022 theme nights HERE.

Smoking is permitted in designated outdoor areas. Smoking indoors or on stateroom verandas is strictly prohibited.
