Monarch of the Seas Cruise Review to Mexico
Sail Date: June 20, 2008
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago
This was our first cruise and it was great. Before the cruise was even over, my husband told me he wanted to go on another, longer, cruise.
We only ate in the dining room 2 nights....the night in Ensenada, I had too much tequila and couldn't make it to the dining room. We wound up eating at the buffet where the staff took pity on me in my drunken state and made me some hot tea. They even remembered me the next day and asked how I was feeling. :)
There is one complaint though; our cabin bathroom would absolutely reek sometimes, as if we were directly connected to the septic tank. The smell would come and go, but when it smelled, I could not even go in there for fear of throwing up. We never called anyone to report it, so I can't say how the staff would have handled the situation. Other than that, we loved this cruise!!
