Monarch of the Seas
4 Night Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 29, 2008
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago
My husband and I just went on our first cruise ever and it exceeded all our expectations! It was, hands-down, the best vacation ever. One surprise was how "un-crowded" the ship seemed, even though it was fully booked. There are so many things to do that it kept people dispersed instead of concentrated. The food was to die for! The entire staff was very professional, accomodating and friendly. Will definitely cruise again, and again, and again! The best value for the money!

Nothing exceptional here.

All of the activities on this island seemed costly for what you got, but just touring the island is the best. it really has some beautiful views. REALLY didn't like the tender process to get from the ship to the island. It just took a long time. Each trip to get the tender loaded and unloaded.

Most beautiful port on this trip. Also, the most to do that is good for families.

Pros: Friendliness of staff, variety of things to do, flexibility on various activities, food, relaxing atmosphere

Cons: The small TV in our room. Also, we were at port everyday and I think I would like the next cruise to have days at see to just have a day or two where we didn't have somewhere to go.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? Yes!
