Great Cruise - wonderful staff!

Sail Date: November 28, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The ship was a little older, but nicely kept. The staff were awesome. They were enthusiastic, always smiling, very accommodating and willing to help. They are truly thankful for their jobs and value them and it shows in their demeanor. I loved Kumar our room attendant, BoBo our dining room waiter - at the 5:45 pm sitting...he was the BEST. The overall staff were wonderful. No complaints.

Pros: The people working aboard the cruiseline. They spoil you and make you feel important and it is evident they love what they do!

Cons: The caribbean style music played 99% of the time.

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

Need more shows, more variety of audience participation in more than just one auditorium during the night hours. Need things during the daytime.
Ship Quality
Restrooms are sometimes hard to find because of limited signage. I finally remembered where they were.
Food and Dining
The very best! Fresh, tasty, variety, and layout was very accommodating.
Cabin / Stateroom
Well maintained and the best service available was shown to us through our room attendant!
Service and Staff
They definitely go above and beyond. This is truly what I enjoyed most about my cruise is the staff on the Monarch of the Seas!
