4 Night Baja Mexico (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Sail Date: March 10, 2008 Ship: Monarch of the Seas Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Family (older children) Reviewed: 10 years ago
We just returned from our cruise aboard the Monarch of the Seas. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and booked two cabins...one for us and one for our daughter and her friend. It was our 3rd cruise and the first for our daughter...we had a great time. The food and service were outstanding. We were able to do what we wanted...RELAX. No rushing, just sitting on deck with a cocktail and a cigar. Our next cruise will have to be LONGER!
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
Our waiter and asst. waiter were excellent. They were attentive and at times were proactive in anticipating our needs. I love food and was able to order a variety of "starters" and multiple main courses.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Everyone was friendly and accomodating. We were treated well everywhere we went on-board.

The Monarch of the Seas appears to be getting a little "long in the tooth", but it was clean and served our needs well.
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
The stateroom was clean and small, as expected. We had a great view from our cabin. I just wish the shower was a little larger...but I knew from previous cruises that it would be cramped. We don't spend much time in the cabin.
My wife and I went on the Wine Tasting excursion in Ensenada. Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed the winery tours. I didn't realize that Mexico had much of a wine trade, but they do. It was a nice day, the bus trip wasn't too long and we enjoyed it.
