3 out of 5

First time cruise

Sail Date: June 18, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship description stated it was recently renovated but from our perspective it was very retro and did not have the appearance of this recent renovation.

Pros: Family time

Cons: Quality of the food of the buffets

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Dinners were great but the buffets were average at best.
Cabin / Stateroom
More cramped then expected. Their idea of a sitting space is a small desk and a chair.
Children's Programs
Nice for the kids to have that option. Helped them make cruise friends.
Service and Staff
Everyone was very nice and helpful.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
This the perfect beach day. Although having to pay for every little option i.e. floating mat makes the all inclusive vacation a misnomer.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling
Nassau, Bahamas
Atlantis was neat but the time in port is rushed and you really don't get an option to do more then one thing.
Don't Miss: Atlantis
