Since I didn’t take pictures the last time I did a bridge tour, I thought I would take the chance offered today to see the bridge again with camera in tow.
On the Mariner the bridge is on Deck 10 all the way forward. In fact, beyond the door that says “crew only past this point” there are cabins for the senior crew. Seen from the outside, they have portholes (no balconies)..
The second officer gave us a tour and extensive explanation, slowed down only by one passenger (German, engineer) who had a million questions that the rest of us didn’t think were all that relevant.
Beyond that, the captain stopped by and what should have been a 30 minute tour managed to be stretched to close to an hour. Lots of electronics, duplicates of everything and people hard at work
