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

Food and Dining
Buffet was quite extensive with great options for sugar free desserts. Main dining room food was wonderful with a great waiting staff. Somehow, the buffet lines need to be more organized though.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very small stateroom but it was clean, the beds comfortable, and adequate for our needs.
Ship Quality
For an older ship it's still in good shape. Everything was neat, clean, and very pleasant on the eyes.
Service and Staff
The staff makes this ship so great. Courteous staff everywhere although I'd like to point out the gift shops staff and casino dealers as especially wonderful.
Very good quality plays and comedic acts.
