A Let Down Cruise!!!!!!!

Sail Date: November 21, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

I WILL NOT take another cruise with Royal Carribean again. The service was terrible and the food was COLD and SALTY.

Pros: Nothing much

Cons: Too many to list - Food is similar for the entire cruise, service is fair and entertainment is lousy

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? No.

No very good... Not too may choices.. Poor quality.
Ship Quality
Dirty, old and dark hallways.
Food and Dining
Cold and Salty food. If you have high blood pressure... be assured that you will need to see a doctor after your trip.
Cabin / Stateroom
Small and run down.
Service and Staff
The service was OK...They keep asking us "Is the service EXCELLENT". Not sure why they are so concern about getting high marks. They tried too hard.
Children's Programs
My son did not return to the children's areas after the orientation. Not a good sign. The staff was old and does NOT connect with the kids. Hope you do something about it.
Nassau, Bahamas
Enjoyed the island very much. Visited the beach and the Atlantis...
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
My son was heart broken when we found out that we cannot get on the island. What a dissapointment. What a shame that they do not have a dock that can park the ship right on the island.
