Retroboat to Funkytown

Sail Date: September 05, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

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.

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

Ship Quality
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.
Service and Staff
Mostly good. Staff is a little too familiar at times.
Commedian was great.
Food and Dining
The 24-hour buffets are not that great. Dining events are better.
Nassau, Bahamas
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.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Not a must see. A few activities, but many people skipped this.
