WORST CRUSE WE'VE TAKEN

Sail Date: March 18, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

THE SHIP IS OLD AND POORLY MAINTAINED (STAINED CARPETING, ETC.) . THE STATEROOM WAS TOO SMALL AND DEPRESSING...IN DISREPAIR WITH STAINED SHOWER CURTAIN, MOLD ON SHOWER FLOOR AND THE SHOWER HEAD LOOKED LIKE IT WAS MADE FOR A RECREATIONAL VEHICLE.

Pros: EVENING SHOWS IN THEATER

Cons: STATEROOM AND STATEROOM ATTENDANT

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED)? No.

Entertainment
Ship Quality
THE SHIP SEEMS TO BE IN DISREPAIR. STAINED CARPETS, PUBLIC RESTROOMS UNCOMFORTABLE AND NOT AS CLEAN AS THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN. NOTHING IMPRESSIVE ABOUT THE DEOCR. KIND OF DIFFICULT TO MANUVER FROM DECK TO DECK.
Food and Dining
TOO MUCH "EXOTIC" FOOD, NOT ENOUGH CHOICES OF LESS EXOTIC FOODS, STEAK WAS TOUGH AND NOT VERY TASTY. DESSERTS WERE GOOD. SLOW SERICE IN DINGING ROOM AT BREAKFAST.
Cabin / Stateroom
OUR STATEROOM WAS A TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT, MOLD ON SHOWER FLOOR, RUST IN BATHROOM, TOILET FLUSHING MECHANISM NOT WORKING PROPERLY. ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM TO MOVE, NO SAFE, NO SPACE IN BATHROOM FOR NECCISITIES...HAD TO KEEP EVERYTHING IN OVERNIGHT BAG. THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A HAIR DRYER IN THE ROOM...NO HAIR DRYER. ALSO, THERE WAS NO WATER PRESSURE, COULD NO CONTROL TEMPERATURE OF WATER IN SINK AND SHOWER...CHOICES WERE HOT OR COLD. THERE WAS A LOUD GURGGLING WITH BAD ODOR IN THE SHOWER DRAIN THAT KEPT US AWAKE. WORST STATEROOM WE'VE EVER BEEN IN.
Service and Staff
STATEROOM ATTENDANT DID NOT CLEAN BATHROOM, DID NOT PROVIDE ICE...THE ONLY TIME WE HAD ICE WAS THE DAY WE BOARDED SHIP...WHEN WE DISEMBARKED THE SHIP THERE WAS STILL WATER IN THE ICE BUCKET FROM THE FIRST DAY OF THE CRUISE. SHE DID NOTHING BUT MAKE BEDS AND REPLENISH TOWELS...ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE!! WORST STATEROOM ATTENDANT WE'VE EVER HAD.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
MOST OF THE ACTIVITIES WERE GREARED TOWARD FAMILIES AND YOUNG ADULTS. SHOPS IN THE STAW MARKET WERE WAY OVER PRICED.
