Even though the ship had some years on her, She was still like a Grand Opening. From the time we boarded until we disembarked, every thing had been or was in the process of being cleaned, polished, put away, or it was just completed. The theatre was fantastic and you couldn't ask for a better place to eat.

Pros: Food was unbelievably scrumptous

Cons: Too much food!

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

Ship Quality
The Pools were side by side and everybody was able to get to them. We felt very comfortable as there was enough room that we never felt crowded.
Food and Dining
The Head Waiter immediately recognized us as friendly and was able to bring us special appetizers (escargot) on a day they were not on the menu. We felt as if they thought we were food critics or something and everybody went out of their way to really impress us.
Cabin / Stateroom
This ship only had 1 floor of staterooms with balconies and we were lucky enough to have selected this option. What a great way to wake up and have coffee and danish. It was just like being at home.
Service and Staff
The room attendant saw we needed ice in our room and always kept or room ready to go, wether in the A.M or P.M., It was as if we had our own personal maid service, 24 hour a day.
At first we were a little confused but once we started to go over the daily prepared compass, everything became very comfortable and we were able to look forward to each activity and we were able to be on time to enjoy.
