Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We really loved our first cruise. This was an anniversary get away for us. The ship was really something. Once we explored all the major locations we were able to get around really well. The fitness center is awesome. Working out looking over the ocean view was inspiring. We felt we received good value for the price. Including the cost of rooms along with tips and cocktails/soda package our 3 night cruise cost around $900.

Pros: We loved the feeling of completely getting away.

Cons: Sometimes felt a little crowded - had an extremely rowdy table next to us at dinner.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED)? Yes!

Always something to do. Unfortunately we were not able to visit our second stop due to weather. The schedule was quickly changed that day so we could have more entertainment options on board. We learned later that the shp had not been able to make this second stop for several weeks - it might have been nice to know this earlier in our trip.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
We were happy with dining overall. We did not find the food excellent however. It was good but not great. We would have liked to have other options than pizza for a late night munch.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room was great - small, but that is just the way it is.
Service and Staff
Ship staff were always helpful and very friendly. Appreciated them very much.
