First time cruise - love, love, loved it

Sail Date: February 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We were impressed with the cleanliness of the ship, constant cleaning! Also, the staff was so kind and helpful, except in the casino - They wouldn't serve us water, tea or soda - said we had to go to Windjammers - AND IT WAS CLOSED!!!! Not everyone drinks alcohol and you can get pretty thirsty spending hours at a slot machine. Really annoying.

Pros: Coco Cay - absolutely stunning! Also, pool party and buffet!

Cons: Nausau - too chaotic - lot of walking for seniors

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Most of the desserts were not good, particularly at Windjammer's
Cabin / Stateroom
Size was actually larger than what I had heard - we were really pleased to be upgraded to a porthole room
Service and Staff
Loved the Newlywed game - hilarious! The host was so good
