I agree with Susan. I can't believe the Sensation is going to be 18 years old!
Boy, time flies. I remember when the Sensation was new.
I have never been on the Monarch. I did see the Monarch docked beside the Sensation in Nassau last October. The contrast between the outside appearance of the 2 ships was stunning. The Sensation looked like a brand new ship - The Monarch looked in dire need of being painted. I was a little shocked they let the Monarch get in that kind of exterior condition. I am sure the dry-dock will fix that though.
