Verified Review
4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 21, 2012
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago

This ship was old and outdated. Our window had fog in it and you couldn't really see out well - what was the point in paying extra for an oceanview room??? I also didn't like that there was no way to get from one end of the ship to the other without either walking down the narrow aisleways of the staterooms or through a bar area.

I was very disappointed in the food. Everything was over-sauced.

Cabin / Stateroom

Other than the fact that the window had moisture in it (not just on the outside) and that there was some obvious wear (rust, raw edges on the ladder to the bunks, etc) the room was fine.

Pros: Service

Cons: Food

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
