Hi cruisinmama,

Thanks for your review of Royal Caribbean’s the Monarch of the Seas.

I was sorry to hear that some of the experiences you had didn’t live up to your expectation. Such as the dress code on formal night, the fact that the onboard “tap†water tasted bad, and even the experience you had on an excursion not being able to understand the guide, and even the problems with your passport and disembarkation. Even with all that.. You said you loved it!

That shows you are definitely a Cruise Crazie

Our first cruise was a similar experience, it was a Carnival Cruise, Lets just say after that first 4 night voyage it left us desiring more but at a higher standard of excellence.

Bottom Line Your family loves cruising!

Now the fun begins for real! Finding out what cruise line works for you! (and to tell you the truth that’s the fun part of cruising trying the different brands, supporting the ones you enjoy and skipping the ones that didn’t please you) what ever you decide..

Remember Your a cruising mama!

Enjoy the discovery!<] :wink:

Yeah, we are hooked ..I think you have to take each Cruise with an open mind, some problems on one ship may never happen on it again..or the same line but a diff ship..

So thats why we are booked on another Cruise in the same year,, bringing the kids this time... :wink:

I think they will have lots of fun and heck when its - 50 where we live :shocked: who will dare complain about +30 temps.. right??lol..

Also I think its ok if someone doesn't like one Cruiseline.. I think your right you just gotta try diff ones to find your fit..

and heck really how bad can that be. trying diff Cruiselines.. :wink: nobody has to twist my arm..

Aggressive shopkeepers in some ports in Mexico, The Caribbean, and Latin America is something you will have to try to adjust to. These people mean know harm and are really very nice, they are only trying to make a buck. They are not out to harm you and are only trying to provide for their families.

I agree, but I have never been to Mexico b/4 and this was quite a shock to me.. Even to have a group of men surround you made me feel very uncomfortable..and with such a narrow street it was very scary for me..and my dh was pushed to the side so we couldn't even see each other anymore...

I don't like strange men touching my butt or grabbing at me..

but then again now I know and now I have the choice if we do a Cruise through certain Ports to stay on the ship or not even pick that itinerary.

I know not all places will be like that, but at least I will go in better informed..

Knowledge is power..

yeah it was really scary for me...but I will say and I hope nobody takes offense...but there was a group of 8 Hong Kong Tourists..and they didn't seem to bother them..so we hid in the middle of them to make our way back down the street... :wink:

Not sure why they didn't bother them...but we made it back to the bus...

I think also we were the first bus to arrive b/c near the end there were 4 buses coming with people...

So maybe the merchants were just warming up with us..

Still I'm not good with that type of aggressive shopping...other were ok with it on our Tour....

I guess just something people are better at dealing at.. but the touching of the booty as my dh put it, was too much for me...

YUCKO!!!!! :sad:

Thanks for sharing. Glad you enjoyed the cruise even with some of the downers. The next one will just get better because now you have enough experience to avoid some of the pitfalls. You even start to ignore things like inappropriate dress for dinner. Plan another one quick. :wink:
