Monarch of the Seas
Sail Date: October 01, 2009
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago
We missed the first day because of flight and baggage claim delays. They wouldn't let us on when we got there at 3:40 because they closed the gates at 3:30. Better to plan flight/transport through the cruise line if you depart from Port Canaveral because it takes awhile to get there and can be inconvenient; if I go on a cruise again I might sail out of a different port. They didn't stop at CocoCay because of bad weather so we had an entire day on the ship. There were activities all day but many did not appeal to me until evening. The food was amazing and the wait staff, although at times difficult to understand, was very polite and accommodating.

Loved the food.


5 out of 5
The CocoCay day was cancelled so the revised ship day was boring during the day because it was too chilly and windy to do anything outside, but at night the activities were fun.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Had an interior stateroom so it was small. The attendant did an excellent job of keeping it clean.

Pros: The food was excellent!

Cons: Bad weather...
