Great value, great relaxation

Sail Date: September 17, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

I've been on Monarch before, and just found everything to be the same - entertainment, etc. The food wasn't impressive. This ship seems to be neglected because it's older and smaller. Staff was nice and helpful. Coco Cay was a great break from a busy season.

Pros: The price paid\, relaxation

Cons: Food wasn't that great; shows were same as previous...

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

Ship Quality
Was clean; just very ordinary
Food and Dining
Not impressed. I've sailed this ship before; quality isn't as good as it was formerly.
Cabin / Stateroom
My room was TINY (smallest room I've ever stayed in) but for the price I paid\, I'm not complaining. It was clean and adequate.
Service and Staff
Repeats of previous experiences
