Average Cruise/Food But Great Service

Sail Date: March 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Ship showing its age, the fact that most of the casino games still took quarters, and only paid in quarters was very annoying. We were looking for improvements over Carnival Cruises we've taken and didn't see any.

Pros: Service

Cons: Food and first show

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

Ship Quality
Layout was just ok
Food and Dining
Very average, borderline boring and bland.
Cabin / Stateroom
Smaller than some rooms I've had for same amount of people.
First show was nothing more than a Dance Recitial, I was and still shocked, we left when it apparently was not going to improve. Other shows were really enjoyable.
Service and Staff
Staff was extremely friendly and very good at remembering your names, impressive for a three night cruise.
