3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 05, 2011
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

A poorly run ship and staff. The trip had all shore excursions cancelled and the staff could have cared less. The dining room staff served wrong dishes and cold food. We were squeezed into a corner where you couldn't stand up from the table without turning the chair sideways. Had to "grab" a wine steward. Poolside bar was slow and indifferent. Kids program left children unattended. Teens roamed all night long. Coupons were not honored. Shows were ok at best. Understaffed at front desk. You just had the feeling no one cared about your wants or needs. I did have a wonderful spa treatment, I should have stayed in there the whole trip.

We loved Atlantis but it can be very expensive but we felt worth it. You may want to call in advance for reservations rather than going on a tour from the ship.
Don't Miss: All water activities were cancelled

Pros: the stateroom was spacious and clean

Cons: attitude of staff from the top down

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
