It's like cruising with family. Many from Florida grab a quick cruise on the Monarch at the last moment just to get away. You always run into interesting folks and its easy to prepare for a 3 or 4 day cruise. We always enjoy a return to the Monarch. The crew was great this past weekend and the weather was great at Coco Cay. We'll be sorry to see her go.

Pros: Close to home\, friendly staff

Cons: Older ship\, small cabins
