The Love and Marriage gameshow was funny and although we only watched, The Quest was very entertaining

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was very friendly. Our waiter and stateroom attendant called us by name from day one. Staff all throughout the ship were very friendly and always willing to help.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
This is a smaller ship but very clean. I found that we had to spend alot of time waiting for an elevator.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was small but fine for our needs, sleeping and a shower. We didn't spend much time in our room anyways.

Ports Of Call

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Nassau was nice. We took a cab to paradise island/Atlantis hotel for $4 per person. We walked around the hotel and saw the aquarium which was fantastic. If you do the excursion though the cruise ship it is somewhere around $65 per person. We wen't for less than $20 for both of us and saw the same thing. Our cab driver even showed us around the town a bit. Don't go to Senor Frogs. Way overrated and the drinks are out of this world expensive and lots of underage drinkers. Lots of great bargains at the straw market but it was crowded and overwhelming. We also did the clear kayak excursion, very fun and well worth the money.

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)

5 out of 5
We had the best time on Cococay. The snorkeling was well worth the money we paid. The cruise line also had a great picnic/barbeque!! Straw market was nice but you will find the same stuff cheaper in Nassau

Pros: Loved the food, especially the Windjammer buffet!

Cons: Prices of the pop was too high

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? Yes!
