Nearly Perfect Four Days!!

Sail Date: November 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

My four sisters and I decided a "Sisters Cruise" would be a nice get away and we were not disappointed. It was just a totally relaxing fun four days. We enjoyed both Cocoa Cay and Nassau. Hope to do it again soon.

Pros: Patrice Doucet, wonderful entertainer in Schooner Bar

Cons: Drew, the Cruise Director. Too over the top.

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

Cabin / Stateroom
The staterooms are rather small but well maintained. Our room steward, Trevor, was excellent.
Patrice Doucet in the Schooner Bar was the highlight of our cruise. Wonderful entertainer. Not too impressed with the cruise director Drew or the entertainers in the main show area. The Captain's reception was very nice.
Service and Staff
Ship Quality
Although an older ship everything was well maintained. My first time on Monarch but very easy to find everything.
Food and Dining
Just returned from a Princess cruise. The food on Monarch was definitely superior. (Except for desserts.) My Time Dining was very well handled. Our waiter Andrew and Asst waiter Jayson were wonderful. Attentive, courteous, just great.
