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.
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.
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?
cause I thought they wouldn't do formals on the last night of a cruise
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.
