L.A. to Ensenada on the Monarch

Sail Date: May 23, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

The Monarch seems old and tired. It needs some serious sprucing up. It does not measure up to the standards of other (newer) Royal Caribbean ships. When taken to the East Coast in October, it should be redecorated and the old, broken fixtures should be replaced. In-room safes and refrigerators should be added to all staterooms. It is not completely accessible for handicapped passengers.

Pros: The new "Vitality" program

Cons: Food was mediocre (nicely presented, but lacked quality and flavor)

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

Los Angeles, California
We live in Los Angeles. The city has much to offer in the way of cultural arts, sports, and many sights.
Don't Miss: Disney concert Hall, Hollywood Bowl, beaches, Getty Center, Reagan & Nixon Presidential Libraries
