Well, RCCL better find a replacement. We don't want Carnival to own the 3-4 day Mexico cruise market out of Los Angeles. I sure would hope RCCL would bring over some of their larger ships to do the 3 and 4-day market, imagine the Explorer class ships overhere?
I will miss the Monarch, I just booked a 3-day on Friday February 15, will make a nice Valentines and Presidents Day weekend cruise!! --Only booked because I heard the news! Otherwise, I would have saved my money to go on Mariner of the Seas for the 7-day Mexico when it comes over to L.A. starting in February of 2009!! Can't wait!
