3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 04, 2011
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship is among the oldest in the RC fleet and it is starting to show it's age. Staterooms were reasonably clean but a little musty. Limited dining options and not enough lounges.

Food and Dining

Dining seemed disorganized. The first night it took us almost 2 hours to have dinner. The next night less than 45 minutes. Only one entree during entire cruise was served at the proper temperature, the rest were barely warm. Not many specialty options.

The juggler was amazing--definitely the highlight of the entertainment onboard. Again, Sindy who did bingo and trivia contests really went above and beyond to make things fun, especially when one of the ports of call was canceled due to high seas.

Our tour of Nassau left a little late. It was OK, not great.

Pros: Sindy, the bingo lady was great.

Cons: The food was never hot. Lukewarm breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
