A fun time!

Sail Date: February 05, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

We had a Jr. Suite which was quite spacious for a stateroom, however, we had problems opening several of the drawers in the main living quarter and the bathroom materials were of very cheap, dated, stained plastic. The toilet had a permanent ring inside it. Our room steward was very nice and helpful. We originally had the late seating for dinner and our waiters were wonderful. However; when we swiched to the earlier seating, we were put in a back room with two tables - segregated from the main dining area and while our new waiters were very nice, they'd forget to order drinks, bring the next course or did not understand what we were saying. It got to be comical. We switched back to the late seating after that.

Pros: Being able to relax.

Cons: The waiter service in the main dining room.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED)? No.

Catalina Island, California
Fun, went to a great cantina.
San Diego, California
We took a tour of the USS Midway. This was by far our favorite event at port. Try not to miss this.
Don't Miss: The USS Midway tour.
Ensenada, Mexico
Bought a tour off of the shuttle bus company rather than the one from the ship and saved 50%. The tour was fun - went to the Bufadora (The Blowhole) and ran the gaunlet through the vendors at the flea market., had a great lunch. Then were driven into downtown for the shops. An all day activity for $15 US.
