Wonderful Cruise Experience

Sail Date: June 01, 2010

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We sailed on the Monarch of the Seas to the Bahama's for our honeymoon. It was our first cruise ever, we both loved it and can't wait to go again. It was better than we had expected. The food was absolutely delicious, whether we ate in the dinning area or the buffet. Our waiter was amazing. I loved how he ask about our lives and was interested in getting to know us. That's something you don't find just anywhere. We made amazing friends while on the cruise. There were also newlyweds. We were lucky enough to get seated with them in the dinning area. To this day, we still stay in touch. The casino was amazing, but it helps to have money if you want to go every night like we did. Though our room was small, we had enough space for what we had, and it was comfortable. They say don't worry about what size room you have, you won't be in there except to sleep, and thats the truth. There is so much to do on this ship that you won't want to go back to your room. We can't wait to go on another cruise. While we want to try other ships, most likely we will always find ourselves back to this ship. I would recommend this ship to all my friends and family.

Pros: Casino was amazing, Food was delicious, and the shows made it all the better.

Cons: How hard it was getting on and off the ship at the Destination spots. Limited smoking areas.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED)? Yes!

Ship Quality
The layout was amazing. Just wish we had a room a little higher than deck 2.
Food and Dining
The food was amazing. I tried stuff I would have never tried here at home. You can order as much as you want and not have to worry about the bill.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ours was small, but comfortable. Just enough room, not too much, not too little.
Service and Staff
Everyone on the staff we came into contact with was very friendly.
Shows were amazing!
