3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 09, 2012
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
This was my first cruise, and my wife's second. Everything was great - as expected! Staff was friendly and attentive, variety and abundance of food was wonderful. On-board amenities met our expectations; enjoyed a great massage in the spa! As a non-smoker, would appreciate more control, confinement of smokers. We found the disembarkation process confusing as to where to go and when, but that may be because we were first-timers.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Excellent variety\, quantity.


3 out of 5
We enjoyed what we went to\, but wasn't our reason to cruise.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Have never been greeted \"Good Morning\" so many times in my life! And always with a smile!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The Monarch is a tad worn around the edges\, and we were told would be leaving the fleet within a year. But that did not damper our enjoyment; we were not disappointed!

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Showing the ship's age. But quiet and comfortable.

Pros: Excellent staff\, great food\, quiet room

Cons: Smokers!

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? Yes!
