An OK Cruise
Monarch of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: June 25, 2012
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Stateroom was very small, shower miniscule... We were only in a standard room, not a superior. A/C wouldn't get cool enough.
Cruise staff warmed up to guests, but at first seemed a little stand-offish.
Food was good, but I didn't like the nickle-and-dime approach to charging for certain steaks, espresso, etc. in the dining room and for certain juice at the buffet. That's what specialty restaurants are for.
Shows were really good. Show orchestra was fantastic! Live music was good, too. One of the two shows was at 10:45 -really late for a show.
For an older ship about to be retired, it was OK.

Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: I liked the individual food stations instead of one LONG line at the buffet
Cons: The tiny cabin would not get cool enough.
