Not what I expected

Sail Date: July 09, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Having cruised on the Voyager of the Seas 10 years ago I was disappointed in Monarch of the Seas. Ship was so small, staterooms very small and there were 300 teen girls from Argentina on board who were very loud and rude! They wore swimsuits in Windjammer which is supposedly not allowed but no one said anything to them about it.

Pros: Coco Cay was awesome!

Cons: Ship was small\, stateroom very small

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

Ship Quality
Ship too small\, pools way too small for 3000 guests\, Windjammer had a dirty \"mop water\" smell at times
Food and Dining
Food in Windjammer was just ok\, but good in dining room. The pizza was great!
Cabin / Stateroom
Too small!!! Bathroom not clean (hair/dirt in shower) TV too small and in an awkward place for viewing
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
Our 7 year old loved it and even made pen pal friends!
