Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

We sailed on Monarch of the Seas. It was an old ship, but it was bigger than I expected. The food was fabulous and the service was great. Next time I will go somewhere else other than Encenada. I enjoyed the casino even though the payoff was poor. The buffet was awesome. I ate food that I never thought I would eat and it was very tasty. Our room was kept cleaned and we had the attendant do such a great job that I would definetly recommend your personnel and the ship to my friends and family. The ice sculptures and designs on watermelsons were just beautiful. I very much liked the quick & easy departure/exiting of the ship. Thank You

Pros: The entertainment by poolside and the food.

Cons: Didn't enjoy Encenada as my port, choose better next time. Also, the tipping on everything. Couldn't run a bar tab so tipping got expensive.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? Yes!

Ensenada, Mexico
This port was a waste of time. I only left the ship for about an hour and than returned. It just wasn't the best choice of places to go.
Don't Miss: There was nothing there I needed to see or felt I missed out on. The activities just wasn't up my alley.
