We love to cruise so having to drive minutes rather than hours to a cruise draws us to Port Canaveral and the Monarch of the Seas. The staff is always receptive to our requests. We align all our activities around the opportunity to ballroom dance which is provided daily. RCCL's Loyalty Program schedules daily get togethers for its members where we can meet new friends each cruise. Monarch of the Seas is a small ship but gives us plenty to do on a 3-4 day cruise.

Pros: The benefits of RCCL's Loyalty Program.

Cons: Excessive volume at activities

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

Service and Staff
Wonderful staff.
Food and Dining
Plenty of choices.
Ship Quality
Easy to get around.
We wished many times that the volume of music and voice at activities could be lowered. I carry ear plugs to reduce blasting sounds.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our outside cabin required one of us to climb over the other to leave our bed.
