A cure for Cabin Fever

Sail Date: April 06, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

Even though this ship is old enough to be decommissioned soon, I felt that it was well maintained. I thought the food was good but not great. I have mobility issues and there were 3 times that I felt my needs were not even considered let alone met. The most annoying was when leaving the ship to go to Coco Cay an employee looked right at me struggling to hold onto the railing, & when I reached where he was hanging over the railing he didn't so much as bat an eye causing me to release the railings to maneuver around him. Cabins were very small.

Pros: We loved Coco Cay

Cons: lack of entertainment & small cabin sizes

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

Cabin / Stateroom
very small cabins and bathroom. We had four people in our inside cabin and our stateroom attendant kept things very organized.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
I found the staff to be eager to meet my needs if I didn't find something to my liking.
I didn't find that there was enough entertainment spread over a wider time schedule.
Ship Quality
Ship is small and easily explored.
Children's Programs
My 9 year old loved going to the kids areas.
