3 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 01, 2013
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship is older but well maintained.. For a short cruise the staff could not have been kinder, more attentive. Our room steward, Wilson, was the nicest I have had on any cruise. Our dining room waiter, Clive, so very pleasant and attentive. I would say the best treatment by stafff in 10-12 cruises. Being one of their oldest ships in its last year of service, they were constantly working to keep it nice and maintained. I have always given th basic gratuity for other cruises and this time I felt compelled to add additional funds to it. they were kind and attentive even the last day which has not alway sbeen the case with other cruises. Man, do they work hard!
