Default Deposit for a 4 night cruise
Was thinking of taking a 4 night cruise in April 2012..I DO NOT care what husband thinks/says..Will be birthday present to myself..But was wondeing if anyone know's what deposit is? I am having a hard time finding it on website.

Ship is Monarch of the seas..Would LOVE thoughts on 4 night cruise(Bahamas) and ship itself. I never did a 4 night cruise on RCCL before..I kinda like particular date because it's Monday - Friday (April 2-April 6 2012)

It's been a year since I've been on the Monarch, but I enjoyed my cruise last March. When in Nassaua I would recommend taking a taxi to Paradise Island to visit the Atlantis Resort. There's a beach just to the East of Atlantis called Cabbage Beach--it's free and there's para-sailing and jet skies for rent. The deposit for a 4 night cruise is $100 per person. Final payment is due 70 days prior to the sail date. Your down payment is fully refundable if you cancel before the final payment is made.

Hi Candice,

The Monarch was my very first cruise (except for the US Coast Guard), she was brand new and was the biggest ship out there....Now she is a little one, but still going strong....
I would follow Sonny's advice and go to the Atlantis...even if you just walk around...You can watch the first in the huge aquarium, (which is mostly free) and hit the casino and say hi to my money for me.....Happy Sailing, and if your husband doesn't want to go...I'm sure there lots of cruisers that will say "Take Me".....ok..Take Me...Happy sailing...

Hi Candice.

If it's the same itinerary I did for my very first cruise, then your ports of call are Nassau, CocoCay, and Key West?

It really depends on what you want to do. I too, would recommend Atlantis while you're in Nassau. It should only be about a $5-7 USD cab ride to it from the pier. Aside from that, it depends on what you want to do. I did parasailing and snorkeling in CocoCay, which is Royal Caribbean's private island, so like with Labadee, if you were there in the past, you should be the only ship there. That's also a good beach day if you just want to lie on the beach.

As far as Key West, that again depends on what you want to do. I'm a water type person, so I did a glass bottom boat tour, and parasailing a second time. Bear in mind, between CocoCay and Key West, you may have to go declare yourself to a customs official on the ship, as you are going from a non-US port to a US port. I'm not sure if it still works this way. This is what we had to do when I was on the Majesty of the Seas back in 2007.

I'm trying to decide what to do for my next cruise. I'm thinking maybe a 7 night Eastern Caribbean cruise late next year. I can't decide whether I want to stick with Royal Caribbean, or try Carnival for a change. Don't get me wrong, I've loved Royal Caribbean in the past, I just might want to try another cruise line to see how it compares to Royal Caribbean.
2007 - Majesty of the Seas (Bahamas)
2009 - Enchantment of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2010 - Freedom of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2013 - Golden Princess (Alaska, roundtrip from Seattle)

Hi Candice,

The Monarch is one of our favorite ships. It's small and "experienced", but has a lot of character and still shows a lot of class. Great crew and food. Also, it is the only ship in the entire cruise industry to have a female captain!

Be sure to include a dinner/snack in the Jade restaurant (cost based on what you order - ala carte menu), just up the stairs from inside the Windjammer. Very good sushi bar and other oriental fare plus you can't beat the view - a wonderful panorama looking out over the stern of the ship.

When we did our 4-nighter out of Port Canaveral, there was no stop at Key West. We went to CocoCay and Nassau, then spent the last day at sea going back to Canaveral. It's the same itinerary as the 3-nighter, except it reverses the route and adds a sea day.

I'm sure you will enjoy the Monarch!
