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.
