"Good Getaway for the Money"

Sail Date: July 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Trip was great and the ports of call were awesome, Cococay and Nassau. Buffet food was above average but the dinning room food was below par. I went on a Carnival cruise a couple years ago, the buffet food was about the same but the dinning food was a huge difference.

Pros: Ports of call

Cons: smaller ship and fine dinning food

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? No.

Ship Quality
Ship was clean and in good condition, no complaints
Food and Dining
buffet was awesome, good taste, quality and food was at the temperatures it should be at. We only ate dinning the first night and was so disappointed that we ate the buffet every other night. Heck, it had almost everything thing dinning had anyway just not the atmosphere.
Cabin / Stateroom
stateroom was clean and nice, room attendant was on the ball great service and kept the room made and fresh
Service and Staff
Nice, generous no issues, What i expected
The activities could of been of more variety and more of them but pretty nice. Comedian Mike Wilson was really funny. And musical shows were nice. Daily on board activities need to be improved.
