Review Summary

Took my 14 year old son and we had a blast. Plenty to do and the food was very good. 3 days was great for a first time cruiser. The staff will knock themselves out to make you happy. This ship is a little older, but it is kept up very well.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Not the best I've ever had, but the food was very good. They offer healthy options, too.


5 out of 5
All the activities were fun and many have been updated from past cruises. The group leaders are funny and want everyone to have a good time.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
These people are awesome!! They will bring you extra entrees if you didn't get enough or really liked something. The magic tricks the waiters show you at dinner are a bonus - ask if they don't do them, it seems like they all know how. If you don't have a kid with you, they may be less likely to show you without you asking. They love to help.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Could use an update but very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The room was super clean. Engine noise was noticable in my stateroom, 7539, but only if you are a fairly light sleeper.

Ports Of Call

Cococay (Cruise Line's Private Island)

5 out of 5
Seagulls will drive you batty at lunch. They scream. Don't leave food on your table. Walk around the island because one side has more of a breeze than the side where almost everyone parks themselves.
Don't Miss: Buy a drink and get the plastic cup for a souviener if you have kids.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Atlantis is worth seeing unless you have been to the Georgia Aquarium, and then it is a little bit of a letdown.
Don't Miss: Do a city tour if you have never been to Nassau.

Pros: Friendly staff, clean ship, LOTS of activities, constant food and fun.

Cons: Engine noise heard in my room, especially from 5-7am.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? Yes!
