Okay, so lets get started!
I'm not going to dwell a whole lot on the review portion of this cruise since Monarch is leaving and the information won't really be valid any longer.
My wife and I drove down the Port Canaveral the morning of the cruise. It's a two hour drive for us and we got to the port around 12:30pm. We used the cruise parking service at the Radisson Hotel. They are no longer allowing cruise guests to park at the main hotel. They've bought another lot directly accross the street.
Embarkation went very fast, we were on the ship within about 15 minutes after getting off the Radisson's parking shuttle. We found the ship to be in good condition. The only maintenance issue being the shattered window in the Schooner Bar. It's been that way for months now, I suppose they are waiting on her upcoming dry dock to fix it.
Our Cabin: 8020, Obstructed ocean view
The cabin was in good shape, with a newer flat screen TV. Our room steward kept it spotless and was very nice. The view was right between the two lifeboats.
