Monarch of the Seas
3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 02, 2011
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Considering the age of the ship, it's very nice. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of the newer ships, but it doesn't have the high price either. If you want an inexpensive but fun cruise, it's a nice ship on which to sail.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food quality was as good as that of larger ships and longer cruises.


3 out of 5
We did not attend any of the shows, but dancing was better than what we experienced on the Freedom and Allure.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Wonderful service.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
It was nice to be able to learn where everything is on a ship in a short weekend. Never got lost once - which I usually do on a larger ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Going from a balcony on the Allure to an interior room on the Monarch was a shock. But after the initial "yikes" reaction and having the bed separated giving a "hall way" in the middle of the room, the room was fine. On a weekend cruise the room is for changing and sleeping only.

Pros: wonderful dancing

Cons: noises at night

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? Yes!
