4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)

Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago

Having cruised on the Voyager of the Seas 10 years ago I was disappointed in Monarch of the Seas. Ship was so small, staterooms very small and there were 300 teen girls from Argentina on board who were very loud and rude! They wore swimsuits in Windjammer which is supposedly not allowed but no one said anything to them about it.

Food and Dining

Food in Windjammer was just ok\, but good in dining room. The pizza was great!
