The Observatorium (onboard ship)

 There are some puzzles you solve. And some you escape. Guests booking Cruise & Clues will need to work together to uncover hidden clues, solve mind-bending teasers, and work out bewildering puzzles. Your mission on the Observatorium is to help the time-traveling professor who is lost in space. As a team, you will race to find clues that will allow you to recalibrate a telescope and neutralize an impending asteroid strike.

Enjoy this amazing escape room adventure aboard Mariner of the Seas in a private, pre-booked session. One review described The Observatorium as “flawless” and an “amazing set piece” with “puzzles … hard enough to cause some head scratching, but not so tough that we couldn't figure them out...”.


Hands-On Puzzle Building Workshop


 The owners of Port City Escape in Wilmington, NC, husband and wife duo Doug and Kris Testori, will lead VIP CRUISE & CLUES guests through an exciting and educational puzzle building workshop. Doug is bringing his immersive room design and prop building experiences to you aboard the Mariner of the Seas in a workshop designed exclusively for VIP Cruise & Clues guests. The couple will guide you in puzzle creation and placement and help you design your very own puzzle to take home!

Portable Escape Adventure: The Message

 The Testoris will also be bringing along their most recent portable escape adventure called The Message. In this portable experience, players will uncover an archeological find that is not what it seems and, as it turns out, neither is the message! 

Blackbeard's Escape in Nassau

 The year is 1718 and Woodes Rogers is rounding up pirates. You are summoned to meet Blackbeard in his hideout and have just one hour to escape before the British soldiers find you!

VIP Cruise & Clues guests will enjoy a private excursion to Blackbeard’s Escape in Nassau. The backstory for Blackbeard’s Escape draws from the history of the Bahamas and the surrounding Pirates of Nassau Museum.


Murder At Sea: An Interactive Murder Mystery


 On April 20, 1914 the SS Libertania set sail from New York, bound for Southampton. Tonight, four days later, Captain Bayard requested that all crew and passengers meet him in the Grand Ballroom. In solemn tones, the Captain announced that he had just been informed that German military forces had invaded Russia and Belgium, and that the British and French governments had declared war on Germany. A stunned silence washed over the assembled passengers and crew. Then, just as voices were growing louder, the lights went out, followed by screams and a gunshot. By the time the lights came back on again, many people had fled the ballroom and the Captain’s lifeless body was found slumped over on the floor… Who killed the captain? And why?

Evan & Elizabeth Wilson of Stumpt! Escape Games in Medford, Oregon will host an interactive murder mystery game aboard the ship on our cruising day at sea. Each player in Murder at Sea will receive a unique character with individual goals, secrets, clues, and abilities. Participants will receive their character assignments before the cruise so they can prepare a costume if desired.
