I went on this cruise for my honeymoon. My wife was expecting more of a fun time but this ship was more for seniors. Upon arriving we had to stand outside and have an hour long talk about wear life jackets. The activities on the boat ended early, such as rock climbing, which ended at 4:30pm. Most of the people onboard were 40 and over. This cruise was just not what I was used to experiencing. I would only recommend this if you are looking for sleep.

Pros: Relaxing

Cons: No activities

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

Food and Dining
The seafood in the main dining hall was wonderful but the places that was open late had very little choices.
Cabin / Stateroom
No complaints, the ocean rooms are very nice and spacious.
Not many options.
Ship Quality
Really small ship, compared to others I have been on.
Service and Staff
No one really guided us or asked if we needed help.
