Verified Review
4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 18, 2012
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good, service was great. Did not like additional charges for things on the menus


5 out of 5
Cruise director was a lot of fun (bundle of energy)!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was great!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship needs (and already has planned) a serious overhaul. Maintenance problems occupied the staff daily (saw them working in corridors) like plumbing, smells, etc

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Small staterooms is somewhat mis-leading, tiny would be better. Stateroom attendant was great and the (tiny) room was always clean

Pros: more than one pool - allows for cleaning

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

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
