4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 01, 2011
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

This is an older ship and the furnishings are worn. It is also small and when full feels even smaller. The guest services department was attentive when we complained about a large smelly stain on our cabin floor but it returned toward the end of the cruise.

The staff tried its best to keep the boat clean but given the age and the volume of people - this is difficult.
