Very disappointed in condition of ship, activities, stateroom, etc.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was excellent in both Main Dining and Cafe. However dress in main dining was supposed to be dress casual, but there were people in shorts, flipflops and ball caps every night including formal night. Dining staff was excellent.


3 out of 5
Shows were good, however activities were disorganized, overlapping thus not allowing you to attend many activities. Activities included camera demonstrations and jewelry demonstrations (not true activities). Dance instructor was very hard to follow. Time allowed for activities approximately 30 minutes made for a lot of rushing through the activity.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff was very friendly however guest relations staff could not answer simple questions regarding announcements that had been made or changes in schedule due to weather.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Smell in hallway and stateroom was almost unbearable. Public restrooms had issues with doors not working properly, some had large holes in interior doors. Resembled cheap hotel.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Smell in stateroom was almost unbearable. Toilet did not work properly for part of the trip.

Pros: Food

Cons: Ship

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
