4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 05, 2010
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Overall was a good little short trip to CocoCay and Nassau Bahamas. the 6 people I went with were cruising virgins so they had no clue what to expect. Overall it was average but the ships crew was friendly and very nice.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Main dining was very good for the fine dining part.. the windjammer cafe (buffet) well the food was good and once you finally found a clean plate then the hunt for a clean set a silverwares would begin. not the same cleanliness standards as the main dining.

well its a cruise line show so nothing special.. the different activities were plentiful so no shortage of things to do.. would recommend the love and marriage game show.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Ship staff was awesome and did a great job correcting the issues the reservations crew didn't fix with our main dining.. we had the same dining room and times but no where near the tables together.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
older ship and smaller so they have crammed alot of stuff into a little bit of space.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Small small small.. these rooms are the about the size of the brochure they are pictured in. very little space around the bed so you spend alot of time juggling luggage around. we stacked ours in the closet to keep it out of the way. On Carnival they have room under the bed to store but this ship did not.. the stateroom attendant was awesome.

dont pay for the tours on the boat the cabs will tour the island for about $20 per person.. also if you want to go to Atlantis its only a $3 ferry ride to atlantis or $5 by cab,
Don't Miss: Atlantis and Senor Frogs on the pier.
5 out of 5
Was a good little island to spend the day at. the best beaches were straight back near the inflateable slides. less crowded and there were plenty of Hammocks to lounge in..
Don't Miss: parasailing and snorkling

Pros: Friendly crew

Cons: Smaller older ship

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
