great cruise

Sail Date: September 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This is a great cruise for price paid on . Dinner's and service were execellent. Very casual dress is OK for dinner. Skip the breaksfast buffet and go to the dining rooms instead for morning meals. Monarch of Seas is an older ship but still in decent shape. Snorkeling in Coco Cay is incredible! Nassau is an obvious tourist trap but the locals were very helpful in getting around the island. Visit Atlantis late in the evening. No charge for walking the grounds and viewing the incredible aquirium. It is a MUST see!

Pros: coco cay

Cons: breakfast buffet

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

Cabin / Stateroom
Rooms are clean and well maintained.
Ship Quality
Older ship but still in decent shape. Many oceanview staterooms have obstructed view. Balcony rooms are set-back from side of ship so a direct downward veiw of the ocean is not possible.
Food and Dining
Several entry options each night and the quality was great. Ask for all you want.
Service and Staff
Dining and stateroom service were incredible.
