Monarch of the Seas Cruise Review to Mexico
Sail Date: April 07, 2008
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 10 years ago
This was a great way to get 16 friends together for 4 days. Getting on at the port of Los Angeles was a breeze but the same is not true for disembarkation when you return. The Staff is very courteous and assisting with all of your needs. The communication is very,very poor regarding what to expect on the last day of the cruise. They should give you a list in your state room on day one telling you exactly how to go about the tipping process and what to expect the morning you leave. We were shuffled around and around as we were the last group (in the cruise ship order) to disembark and we did not know where to go, where to sit/stand and the wait to get off is very, very long. No place in the line for elderly to sit, hot and stuffy and the feeling that we were now "in the way". Other than that, the 4 night cruise provides 3 nice ports of call and good meals and quiet state rooms(small but you don't spend much time in there). This cruise was absolutely right for the price we paid!!
