A good cruise

Sail Date: June 27, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

One excursion taken to island, electricity was out so no shops were open. Could only get something to drink in a can, very little food available. We feel that excursion should have been cancelled.
Coca Cay (private island)....shops were neat, but the beach/water was covered in rocks. If not floating on mat (that you paid for).....couldn't walk. Very disappointing. Food at the cookout was great, picked up before we were through eating. Glass bottom boat ride was great!

Pros: The food and cleanliness.

Cons: Too small, not enough activity.

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

Went to what we thought would be a professional show and it was a "dance class recital"....very disappointed. Shows put on by the boat's dance and singing team was great!!!!
Ship Quality
Would recommend to first time cruisers who don't want to be overwhelmed. Layout-clubs were hard to find (especially where bingo was).
Food and Dining
Waiter was superb!!!! Food was great and able to get plenty of it!!!!! No one left hungry!!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Loved the animals. Attendant always asked us how we were doing, did we need anything. Always seemed to care!!!
Service and Staff
Nassau, Bahamas
Blackbeards Cay BIG WASTE OF TIME due to no electricity.
Don't Miss: Sunset cruise-AWESOME!!!!
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Beach-full of rocks/not good at all. Glass bottom boat-GREAT! Shops-cool!
Don't Miss: Glass bottom boat.
