3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 28, 2012
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

We travel often and this was not as expected. Since we had never traveled with Royal Caribbean before we expected a much better experience. The ship was clean but worn out. The service was great but the food was average. We were told Lobster was not served on the shorter trips and there would be a $25 upcharge if we wanted it. Not a good thing.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Yuch! Very few items were seasoned properly. The buffets were big disappointments. We could go to Golden Corral and get better tasting food. And the presentations were lacking. Afternoon Tea was just another buffet. At least have imported specialty tea. We can get Lipton from the corner supermarket at home.

The staff was the best part of the cruise.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
This ship is old and the carpet is worn and not as \"bright\" as expected. It seemed a little outdated.

Cabin / Stateroom

Although very clean. The rooms were extremely small.

Pros: The service

Cons: The food

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
