We're looking at a possible sailing on the Monarch and are wondering if the Jade Restaurant is still on her and still serving sushi? I read a post a while back that said she was going into drydock and was having the Jade replaced by a Johnny Rockets.

Has anyone been on her lately?

The deck plans for Monarch show the Jade being there through April 2010. I don't know when the next refurbishment for Monarch is scheduled, although the ship is moving to Port Canaveral soon and it is common for a ship to have a refurbishment in between homeport changes.

I also should add that Jade is mostly an extension of the Windjammer buffet and not an upscale oriental restaurant. I wouldn't look at it as a reason to book a particular ship.

We are going to be in Cocoa Beach FL during the last week of Aug 2009 and thought we could do a quick 3-night cruise for the Fri - Mon slot while we were down there.

The cruise is on the Monarch, and I saw that they had a "sushi bar" on board (I love sushi!). I was hoping that it would be a specialty restaurant and that I'd see if I could book it for all three nights.

But also saw some posts that it was being replaced by a JR and got bummed out. Oh well, I sure got excited there for a while. Hey, it might still be there when we go, but I was expecting something special, darn.

Dave, I know you're taking the 3-night just before our cruise (Sovereign) in a couple of weeks. Do 3-nighters have a formal night?

Thanks,

Yes. I think we discussed this earlier in another thread. It will be on the Nassau night.

That was concerning the 4-nighter that we were taking right after you.

I didn't think that the 3-nighter would have the same schedule, cause I thought they wouldn't do formals on the last night of a cruise.

Thanks for having patience with me, I'm really trying hard to learn all this stuff!

Hello johnboy,

The formal night on a three night cruise is on the second night.

Oh heck, I'm getting the two cruises confused. The 4-nighter goes to CocoCay first, but the 3-nighter goes to Nassau first. Now it makes more sense.

Sorry.

Even for the 3-nighter it isn't on the last night. You have casual on the first night, formal on the second night, and casual on the third night.

I am actually toying with the idea of not using the main dining room for dinner on my cruise. I still plan to tip the staff, but might do the casual dinner in the Windjammer each night. I haven't decided yet.

Is that because the dining room is so bad or the Windjammer is so good? I have read that the food was much better in the dining room.

Now you've really got me scratching my head, wondering about that one! Why would you do that?
