Amazing cruise for 10 yr old and mom/dad
Monarch of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: August 17, 2009
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago
The ship was clean, well maintained despite having a few years on her, and amply stocked with great food and attentive staff. The pools on board were fantastic and the childcare was also great (my son's favorite part of the trip, i suspect, was hanging out with other ten year olds in the "adventurer's lounge"). Casino is small, but friendly with dealers and croupiers giving advice on the best way to play...center piece of the ship is the Compass Lounge, which offers a 360-degree view around the ship from the top deck.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: snorkeling around the wrecks in the harbor
Don't Miss: not really much of a port of call, though hanging out on the ship while it was docked was okay
Pros: the dining, the salt water pools onboard and even the casino were fantastic
Cons: the only bad part was that the ship's main dining room is located so you feel the ship's motion.
