Terrific Cruise

Sail Date: October 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship, Monarch of the Seas, is a good ship for a cruise of this type. It was easy to find your way around. It was a clean and comfortable ship. You can tell it is not one of their newer ships but for a route like this to the Bahamas it is a perfect choice. The staff (everyone we met) is exceptionally friendly.

Pros: Plenty to do and plenty of time to relax; loved CocoCay. The value for the price paid was exceptional.

Cons: Nothing really. The ship could use a renovation but it was clean and comfortable.

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

Food and Dining
Food was excellent at all meal functions.
Service and Staff
Very friendly all the way around.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Good size room and plenty of places to unpack your belongs. The only thing I did not prefer was that our Deluxe Oceanview did not have a clear view. The lifeboats were not exactly blocking our view but they were part of the view. But we did not spend a great deal of time in the rooms anyways.
Some fo the entertainment was excellent and some was average, overall good. Times were appropriate for maximum flexibility.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Great island. We had a lot of fun snorkeling, walking, and relaxing. Loved talking to the folks who live on and care for the island.
Don't Miss: Must snorkel.
Nassau, Bahamas
Must go and see Atlantis and participate in their Aquaventure. Overall though I would not go to Nassau.
