Food and Dining

5 out of 5
My only criticism is that passengers had to pay for soda; it wasn't included.


3 out of 5

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Programs for kids could use some work. My 12-year-old daughter's only option was the same program that the teenagers had, which she was not interested in. A separate program for tweens (middle school age) would help.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our stateroom was very small; perhaps this is related to the age of the ship. At 20 years old, it's the oldest one in Royal Caribbean's fleet.
3 out of 5
Attractive location, but I did get tired of merchants and presenters asking for gratuities.
3 out of 5
Because of Hurricane Irene, the ship went to Key West instead of Cococay.

Pros: The food was first rate.

Cons: Very rough seas during last night because of Hurricane Irene.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? Yes!
