4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 30, 2012
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 6 years ago

We liked our superior cabin even though it did not have a balcony (which is usually what we get). The room was nicely decorated and I was surprised how well kept and clean the cabins and public spaces appeared. The staff was fantastic. Entertainment was average, although we had a great comedian on the last night. We ate at the buffet at breakfast and lunch and in the main dining room at dinner. I love to eat...but found the choices mundane and either bland or salty. My table mates were also disappointed with the meal selections and preparation. It was OK for a 4 night cruise...but I would consider other lines as well. I'm a seasoned cruiser and this was my 10th cruise......Overall, this cruise was slightly below average.
