Royal Caribbean’s Monarch of the Seas

When Royal Caribbean’s Monarch of the Seas took her maiden voyage in 1991, she was one of the largest cruise ships ever built. Today, this Sovereign Class vessel from Royal Caribbean isn’t the biggest, but she still offers passengers the enormous freedom and transformation that comes from experiencing some of the most gorgeous places on earth.

The following is what we think is most noteworthy about what’s changed for the better, and what’s always been beautiful, about Monarch of the Seas:

The Ship and Itineraries

Monarch of the Seas still graciously glides cruisers over stunning seas on 3 and 4-night trips to the Bahamas. She leaves from her home dock in Port Canaveral, Florida, and stops at Nassau and CocoCay, an exclusive island destination visited only by Royal Caribbean ships. You can turn a seemingly mundane life into an adventure of a lifetime in hurry when you sail on one of Monarch of the Seas’ quick getaways.


Even on Monarch of the Seas’ short excursions to the Bahamas, there’s plenty of time to enjoy a great bite to eat at a fabulous restaurant. This ship offers many fabulous dining venues for casual or elegant meals, such as Windjammer Café  for yummy salads or Jade Asian-fusion eatery for international delicacies.

Bars and Clubs

With 9 bars and clubs to choose from on Monarch of the Seas, you may have a hard time narrowing down where you want to spend an evening. We suggest you squeeze in a little dancing at Boleros. But, you can always lay low in a sultry lounge with a tasty libation in hand.


Monarch of the Seas offers many opportunities to enjoy fun activities, indoors or out. Outside, you can play basketball, go ice skating, and even challenge a friend to a game of shuffleboard. On Monarch of the Seas’ decks, it’s fun to climb the rock wall, go for a swim, or relax in a spa. Inside Monarch of the Seas, it’s the casino, the Broadway-style theater, the spa, and the fitness center that tempt passengers.
