First Cruise now a holiday tradition!

Sail Date: December 20, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

I was told that the ship was the oldest and smallest of the fleet, but it was my first cruise, so I did not notice or care. It was awesome! It was more adult-oriented and could have used a few more hot tubs, but other than that, I loved it!

Pros: Not having to worry about anything!

Cons: Not ever knowing what time it was, but who cares! LOL

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

Ship Quality
You can tell it's an older ship
Cabin / Stateroom
The bathroom could have used some regrouting and cleaning
Food and Dining
Everything was amazing!
Service and Staff
Any time of day or night, they were on it! Yami, our waiter made the trip!
We didn't partake in a lot, but what we did do was awesome!
Children's Programs
Nassau, Bahamas
Awesome! Geared more toward shopping and site-seeing, but still great! Stop by Unwine next to the Parliament buildings for the best local meal and drinks you can find!!
Don't Miss: Unwine lounge and restaurant
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
This was the best part of the whole trip! It had the ease of being on the ship (free food and drink) and the exotic feel of a deserted island. IT was absolutely breathtaking!
Don't Miss: Don't miss the Island Oasis Lounge!
