Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? No.

Food and Dining
There should be seperate evaluating for fine dining and regular vending. Our fine dining was excellent, as we've come to expect from cruising. The anytime dining was the same for both days. Since we didn't care for those entries we have hamburgers for two lunches.
Cabin / Stateroom
We never met the attendant, although the beds were made and turned down. We dropped a contact lens and when I went to the floor to look for it I was a little discusted. There was black hair all over the carpet.
Service and Staff
First night was a pretty good comediatn, Saturday night they had a juggler (boring), Sunday night they had the dancers, they were good. The adult comedy probably would have been great but the boat was really rocking and we ended up getting sea sick and confined to our stateroom.
