Exciting cruise to Bahamas

Sail Date: May 29, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Even the "Monarch of the Seas" ist 18 years old, it doesn't show much. The ship is impressive in each and every part. We loved to eat in the Windjammer Cafe instead of the more poshy main dining room. We really enjoyed having the afternoon snacks in the Jade restaurant. More than 2,500 passengers on board, but many times you feel you are by yourself - like on the sun deck. The theatre is a wonderful place and the show "You can't stop the beat" was a professional high energy event. Coco Cay: What a beautiful little island painted in caribbean colors!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Express checkout was a chaos

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

Nassau, Bahamas
We had a great time by just strolling between the 5 big ships on the pier (Norwegian Sky, Carnival Freedom, Carnival Imagination, Mariner of the Seas, Bahamas Celebration). The business area right at the pier looks a little dirty.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
It's just a wonderful little place!
Don't Miss: Don't miss the beautiful caribbean colors!
