I hope you are replacing the Monarch with another smaller ship,... we don't have to walk too far..
Didn't like the art work,

Pros: The island we visited\, CocoCAy? beach

Recommends Monarch of the Seas (RETIRED) 221? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The breads were awesome. my thanks to the bread chef
The frequent cruiser\, man at table #85\, was rude\, very demanding\, wasted food\, (took one bite of his steak that was better than ours\, and discarded it.. ) He really was obnoxious\, and we felt sorry for our waiters that did everything to please him\, but nothing was right...
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was small\, but that was the only way I could make sure we were near the elevator.. Not your fault
Service and Staff
The waiters were awesome\, we were at table 82\, 8:30 sitting. We had a miserable man\, high on your list of many cruises\, that was very nasty. We told our waiter\, he made up another table for us away from him... but we went to the Sushi place instead... The waiters tried to please us\, but he put a damper on our dining experience\,.
Enjoyed my experience of making sushi\, took the hour class.. It was fun... thought we needed another craft class..
