Enjoyed our cruise

Sail Date: July 26, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship needed some upgrading as carpet was evidently stained and worn. Room was comfortable but had a drainage problem the first night in the shower which needed repair at 11:30 PM.

Pros: Everything is done for us

Cons: Food was not as good as last years RC trip - some cost cutting evident.

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

Ship Quality
Ship had very few balconies and was confusing to get through. Some floors could be used to go from front to back and others could not.
Food and Dining
Some good - some not so good. Was surprised there was not easily available snacks, water and ice tea right at poolside. Instead - had to put on a shirt and sandals to enter a different part of the ship for this - not convenient at all.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a deluxe oceanview which we liked but the drains should have been checked and fixed ahead of our boarding.
Service and Staff
Most were very nice and helpful yet the shore excursions person no help at all.
The singers and dancers were very good as well as the comedy shows.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Very nice accommodations and the island buffet very good.
Nassau, Bahamas
Atlantis overpriced and the horse buggy tour not worth it.
