Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Cruising has changed the last few years, clearly. More fee for service features each year. RCI now makes you to do the extra mile, with the beach-towels, coupon system and envelop, although you pre-paid your tips.

Pros: The restaurant staff and service in the evenings, really good.

Cons: Breakfast in the restaurant: poor selection on the menu, disorganized staff. The beach towels you have to get on th 11th floor, personally carry back to the same spot. Prepaying tips, still have to deal with coupons for the stuff.Cabins without icebox.

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

Ship Quality
Public bathrooms, casino, restaurant areas are becoming neglected, messy.
Food and Dining
Nothing exceptional, or disappointing but surf and turf, lobster gone in the last 3 years.
Cabin / Stateroom
No icebox in the cabin. The service, condition of the room otherwise good
Service and Staff
Waiter, assistant waiter at dinner exceptional.
