Review Summary

1) Embarkation: SLOW! Going through metal detectors was a joke. Once we got up to desk..went faster. 2) Ship: It's an oldie and is shows it! 3) Cabins: SMALL! 4) Food: Nothing to write home about...Lido deck buffet often crowded..but ok. Sometimes waiters would look the other way if you needed a refill on coffee 5) Dining: Service ok, waiters friendly overall 6) Bars: Ok...if you had a soda card some waiters were slow to serve 7) Coco Cay Private Island: A 10! Great island..lots to do..IF you get to stop there! Many times they can't, but when they can..it's the BEST 8) Shows: Great! Don't miss them! 9) Quest Game: Don't miss it 10) Loyalty to passengers: 10...Great party for Crown and Anchor folks..Don't miss it 11) Debarkation: Ok 12) Parking at Port Canaveral: a 10. Great in and out! Overall...if you get a great price...it's a great get-a-way, but it's time for the Monarch to be retired. Scott Lara www.cruiseradio.net
