Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I thought the food was fine. You definitely cannot go hungry on a cruise. If anything you gain at least 10 lbs. Overall quality was good, very convenient. The only thing was husband was a tiny bit disappointed that they didn't offer more seafood options like lobster and crab. He'll get over it. He got sea bass instead and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Love & Marriage was a hoot. We really enjoyed it. We went during halloween so there were alot of activities based around costumes, etc.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Willingness to help is an understatement. They will do whatever it takes to make you happy. Just remember to tip them for all of their effort though!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Since we had never been on a cruise we didn't know what to expect. I am glad this was our first one. Yes Monarch of the Seas is the smallest ship in Royal Caribbeans fleet and yes it is 19 years old but the price of this cruise was too good to pass up. Well worth the money in my opinion.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Stateroom size is fine. Decor is a little dated but very cozy & clean. Heck you don't take a cruise to stay in your stateroom anyway.

Pros: Absolutely beautiful caribbean water

Cons: Munster drill

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? Yes!
