Sail Date: September 05, 2011
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

As long as you are getting a good deal, this boat is fine. It's seen a lot of wear and tear. If you aren't picky about scuff marks and a bit of grime, this will do fine.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The 24-hour buffets are not that great. Dining events are better.


3 out of 5
Commedian was great.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Mostly good. Staff is a little too familiar at times.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Everything is functional, but everything has also been in use for a very, very long time. You hear a lot of people talk about the remodeling of this boat - it didn't take.

Cabin / Stateroom

Seen better days.

Not a must see. A few activities, but many people skipped this.

30 minutes off the boat, a native offered substances for sale. Took a city tour that focused on a liquor store in a *very* bad neighborhood and the casino. If you like tourist activities, save yourself the time and walk to the water tower.
Don't Miss: Natives offering questionable/illegal items for sale.

Pros: The waiter learned my name. Great service.

Cons: Not so much of a problem, but this boat is dated. The decor is very 70s.
