Fun Time Monarch Cruise

Sail Date: October 08, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

I took the family for the weekend to celebrate birthdays. Great time, the ship's a bit old, but the personnel made up for any shortcoming there. Alot of activities on & off ship, so not much time spent in the room anyway. Prices in shops were reasonable, kids time covered which lent casino time for us, good hours for both.

Pros: Personnel were friendly and helpful, alot of activities even for the kids, good choice on excursions.

Cons: Clearer directions for 1st time cruisers. but we caught on.

The ship was very clean, obvioulsy an older ship ... Carpets well worn, rust here & there but nothing too significant.
Food and Dining
Alot of choices at the buffet, and even in the more formal area, food was OK.
Cabin / Stateroom
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Everyone very friendly & helpful. Grandson celebrated a birthday & the staff provided all the fanfare.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Easy accessible, plenty of space, Kids loved the water park & slides.
Nassau, Bahamas
Alot of shopping at Nassau,. good deals on side street areas. We did the Discover Atlantis tour also - it was OK, though not real impressed for what it cost.
