I recently sailed on Monarch of the Seas. The ship was clearly older, the bathrooms were extremely small and not very functional. The shower curtain was terrible. There were no sports bars on the ship.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food at the Windjammer was never really hot. Good choices, however. The dining room experience was good. I do prefer freestyle dining, but the wait staff was great.

3 out of 5
Seeing the Atlantis was a must. There were many parts of it that we missed as we did not opt for an excursion
Don't Miss: Atlantis

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)

3 out of 5
I was disappointed with Coco Cay. There was no swimming beach.

Pros: The bed was REALLY comfortable

Cons: The age of the ship and lack of sports bars on the ship

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
