Nice little get-away weekend

Sail Date: September 23, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship areas were comfortable. Food was mediocre. Drink prices were not cheap but cocktails were tasty and good amount of alcohol for the money. Wine was a little pricey with not much selection. The entertainment we did see was good, but we did not go to any of the shows. Casino was comfortable, just didn't win enough money :)

Pros: Boleros Bar

Cons: Food

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

Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was clean and comfortable and our attendant was very personable and quite efficient.
Service and Staff
We did not go to many of the shows but very much enjoyed the entertainment in the Boleros Bar.
Food and Dining
Food was very average. If you are a cook or a foodie the food taste and presentation was below par. The onion soup in particular was awful - just like a can of broth in a bowl with a piece of bread on top. If we would have stayed on the ship for a week we would have lost weight for sure!
Nassau, Bahamas
Candie's at the Fish Fry is awesome ! We have been to Nassau several times so didn't need to do the "Atlantis" thing. Conch salad and excellent Goombay Smash's at Candies. Stopped in to casino at the Wyndham which was nice and a great place to get out of the rain.
Don't Miss: Greycliff Hotel for dinner!!! The experience and food were the reason we chose this particular ship and ports.
