Mediocre cruise

Sail Date: March 01, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

The carpet throughout this ship is faded, worn, and dirty. Our shower area had chipped paint and rust. Breakfast buffet was very bad, very poor quality, and the exact same menu every day.

Cons: Very poor food/small stateroom/dirty carpet

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

Food and Dining
Midnight chocolate buffet was nice to look at but very short on taste. Lack of options for meals and poorly advertised. See main summary narrartive for more.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very small. Rusty, chipped paint in shower. Hot water did not last long at all.
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
Not much here to choose from.
