Awesome Vacation

Sail Date: March 01, 2011

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

As a first time cruiser, this was the best ship to aboard. Not too big but large enough to have a fun filled weekend on. Wish I knew more about Nassau and excursions because we did walk around aimlessly without anything to do. The activities were great on the ship including Rock n Roll karioke.....(plus the guitar player was hot) and bands and DJs on the top deck of the ship. People were so nice and friendly! I am a cruiser for life!!!

*****Dont be foolish like me, pack lots of sunblock!!

Pros: food at the Windjammer Cafe and drinks and good times at Boleros

Cons: food at Vincents.....too heavy for a cruise when you're rocking back and forth

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

Ship Quality
It looked a little outdated but still beautiful! Its an older ship, what do you expect.
Food and Dining
Windjammer buffet was great but Vincents was WAY too heavy to consume, wasnt thrilled.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was way small but your only there to sleep! We took catnaps throughout the weekend and it was sufficient....we also stayed in the cheapest room possible!
Entertainment was great....loved the band that played in Boleros....that was out normal spot because we smoke. Guitar player was nice to look at! Band was great. DJ was awesome on the top deck as well!
