Review SummaryI recently sailed on the Monarch of the Seas with family and was delightfully impressed with the Royal Caribbean sailing experience. We have sailed other cruise companies in the past and Royal Caribbean by far has been the best. The staff was so friendly and helpful that at the end of a 3 day cruise you felt like you were leaving behind friends that you had known for years. During the final evening show they brought out everyone who had entertained, cooked, served, or cleaned for you throughout the cruise. The accommodations were small but cozy and you spend so little time in your stateroom that before the end of the cruise you couldnt imagine needing anything bigger.
During our cruise we had a medical emergency with one of our family members who suffered several seizures. The number of staff members that responded to the stateroom to ensure that the family was comfortable was unbelievable. The medical facilities that the ship had on board were outstanding, it was an entire hospital on the first floor. Something I hope no one will ever have to use but take comfort in the fact that it is there.
The Windjammer caf offers a large selection of food, however, the dinning room selection was limited if youre a picky eater and the after hours eating is limited to room service and the Sorrento Pizza bar. There were numerous daily activities and the nightly entertainment was hilarious. Everything on board is centrally located and just an elevator ride away, which is great for the elderly crowd that have difficulty walking long distances . Overall it was a relaxing experience that we will definitely do again.
