Just ok for a long weekend

Sail Date: March 01, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We will stick to at least a 7 day cruise, more entertainment and better food and larger ships

Pros: dining room staff

Cons: lack of storage in cabins, no safe in cabin, not alot of activities, short buffet hours, and not a great food selection in buffet

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? No.

Service and Staff
Staff overall were good, dining staff excellent
Food and Dining
Dining room good but buffet not so good
not much going on during evenings, unless you are into drinking alot. Shows were just ok.
Ship Quality
If you have been on a 7 day cruise you may find it rather small, but considering it's age it seemed well maintained
Cabin / Stateroom
No safe in room and very little storage compared to other ships we've been on
