Royal Caribbean is canceling voyages on Monarch of the Seas from May 6 - June 2 in order to complete what it’s calling a “major refurbishment” of the ship before it heads to Los Angeles. Sources there are mum on details -- but look for some fun, unusual additions and changes to features on the ship -- that will add some extra umph to its new assignment.
Passengers booked on any of these four- or five-night Western Caribbean or
Bahamas itineraries are being offered similar trips on other ships and a
varying scale of onboard credit amounts. Probably the most significant
passenger impact is on the ship’s transitional voyage through the Panama
Canal; that 14-night Ft. Lauderdale to Los Angeles trip, originally slated
to depart May 17, was among those canceled.
Stay tuned and we’ll provide more detail on the Monarch’s “sexy” changes as
