Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? Yes!

Ship Quality
All public areas were well maintained and clean.
Service and Staff
What can I say, the staff was the best!! They did everything for us.
Food and Dining
Dining room food was very good and the service was excellent. The buffet had long lines and not enough tables for dining. Perhaps there needs to be serving stations on both levels of the buffet. The food at the buffet was average, nothing spectacular.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was very small, but the bedding was very nice.
Activities were scheduled throughout the cruise, giving lots of options.
Ensenada, Mexico
La Bufadora is nice to see once. Shopping is good if you are not hounded too much.
Don't Miss: La Bufadora
