Could be improved

Sail Date: June 18, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Ship is getting old and needs some serious upgrades - but - staff did the best they could with what they had!
The boat was either in some rought seas or it just rocked a lot.
Did not like early departure times (from Cococay or Nasseau) so we could be very slowly cruising and (spending money/time) stuck being on the boat.
Wheelchair assistance departing was poor.

Pros: more than one pool - allows for cleaning

Cons: plus (additional) charges for things (like food)

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED)? No.

Ship Quality
Ship needs (and already has planned) a serious overhaul. Maintenance problems occupied the staff daily (saw them working in corridors) like plumbing, smells, etc
Food and Dining
Food was good, service was great. Did not like additional charges for things on the menus
Cabin / Stateroom
Small staterooms is somewhat mis-leading, tiny would be better.
Stateroom attendant was great and the (tiny) room was always clean
Cruise director was a lot of fun (bundle of energy)!
Service and Staff
Staff was great!
