A Memorable Cruise!

Sail Date: March 01, 2012

Room Type: Oceanview

For a Bahama 3 and 4 night steamer, this old ship puts on a beautiful face. We are veterans cruisers, as this was our 44Th sailing, and the 3rd cruise on Monarch, after a 2 year absence from this refined lady.

She has been well kept. The staff was extremely courteous, the dining was above par for this level of cruising, the interior, and exterior of the ship is very well kept considering it's age. This all points to extremely competent management.. In all probability this will be our last cruise on the Monarch, she will be departing RCCL for a sister company next Year. We''ll be sad to see her leave.

Pros: What was their not to like.

Cons: No cons on this remarkable old vessel.
