Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? Yes!

Ship Quality
The carpet in the hallways smelled a little like mildew but otherwise very clean
Would have liked more adult activities during the day sinced we missed coco cay both attemts to stop ther
Food and Dining
We loved most of the food we tried. I tried some food I had never had before. Great time for dinner, the second seating. Wish there had been a requirement on formal night for everyone to be dressed formal. We sat with people in jeans.
Cabin / Stateroom
Perfect size for 2 people
Service and Staff
Pedro was very couteous and kept our room immaculate. the waitstaff was great but especially the assistant waitress, She remembered our names and what we drank when she saw us at the buffet lunch. Very professional
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
We had built the whole trip up to this port. We had paid for snorkling and wanted to parasail. Very dissapointing not to stop there and to have nothing done to make up for such a big part of the trip being missed
Don't Miss: the stop!!!
Nassau, Bahamas
We went to the public beach beacuse we had spent the excursion money we had for coco cay that we didnt end up going to. If we knew that was going to happen we would have gone snorkling in nassau and spent more time off the boat
Don't Miss: the beach. beautiful water
