everything about average for a bargain based cruise

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
As all ships in lower categories are doing they jam their soup, salad, and appetizers onto one list. making most think they only have one choice. 6 or 7 course dining disapperaring over the hill.

Entertainment

1 out of 5
Main theater a disaster. You can't see the stage from about half of the balcony seats. And unless you want to wait a half hour, that is all you can get. The theater is not large enough to hold regular seating and anytime dining guests at the same time.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All crew members, waiters, busboys, bar staff , and cabin attendants seemed to be happy in their jobs, which you can tell after a few cruises.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
older ship, personnel make up for its older ship shortcomings

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The oceanview and above are decent sizes rooms for the size of the ship, but some I do not know if all of the inside rooms are verrrry small with extremely small closets
1 out of 5
poor tour. Andrasta gardens etc. Tour guide El Sid bearable, his van was not. No shock absorbers and as usual air conditioning non functional
Don't Miss: Andrasta gardens- definitely stuck in the fifties. That was also the last time anything there was fixed

Pros: special attention given to diamond members

Cons: food selection fair in main dining room. ridiculous a la carte specialty restaurant. Besides 15.00+ for a steak, thry charged extra for desserts and salads!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
