4 Night Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 12, 2007
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 10 years ago

We cruised with 29 people for my mother's 60th birthday. It was her first cruise and she and my dad enjoyed every minute of it. The entire staff was super friendly, the food was excellent, and the ship was very clean. Of the 29 people, 12 were children ages 7-15. All of the kids really enjoyed the kid programs and they were very safe and supervised for the younger groups. You do have to pay for the ice cream and $5.00 per hour per kid after 10pm in the kid's clubs for ages under 12. Overall a wonderful cruise!!!

too much time wasted traveling to destinations. Better to stay on the ship here.

I was here on a cruise a few years ago and it is totally different. It is much cleaned up and the "vendors" are much more under control. (didn't see any kids begging or selling) Bus/Shutte take you right into town, but you still have to play "Frogger" when crossing the streets!!!

Beautiful island. No real beach though. Avalon is very small, but the shops were fun.
Don't Miss: Luau Larry's Wickie drink and hats, you have to rent a golf cart this was the best!!!!

Pros: Friendly staff, great food, clean ship

Cons: state rooms are very very small and you pay for ice cream and kid's clubs after 10pm

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? Yes!
