Ship description stated it was recently renovated but from our perspective it was very retro and did not have the appearance of this recent renovation.

Food and Dining

Dinners were great but the buffets were average at best.

Cabin / Stateroom

More cramped then expected. Their idea of a sitting space is a small desk and a chair.
5 out of 5
This the perfect beach day. Although having to pay for every little option i.e. floating mat makes the all inclusive vacation a misnomer.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling

Atlantis was neat but the time in port is rushed and you really don't get an option to do more then one thing.
Don't Miss: Atlantis

Pros: Family time

Cons: Quality of the food of the buffets

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
