eeeeh it was alright!

Sail Date: September 12, 2008

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

This is a great ship for those wanting to drink extreme amounts, but if your not into large crowds....don't do it. It's more of a young bachelor party scene, which isn't necesarily a bad thing, but if your looking to relax...this isn't the way.

Pros: I enjoyed the pool activities the most. The ship has great cruise directors that liven things up. Also, I enjoyed Ensenada.

Cons: The "Hurry up and wait" factor. There were lines galore. Also the smell of the ship wasn't very appetizing.

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

Ensenada, Mexico
DO NOT EAT THE FISH TACOS AT MANGO MANGO across from Papas and Beer. At first bite we thought we inhaled toxic gases and immediately gagged. The Blow Hole adventure was fun.
Don't Miss: Papas and Beer
