Love this small ship

Sail Date: November 12, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

This is a small ship and older but I have cruised on it several times, it is great for 3 or 4 nights, just to relax and be pampered. The crew was great and the private island is great. I am sad that it will be sold in April.

Pros: The crew were outstanding

Cons: Dinning room food was just ok\, the Buffett was very good

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

Service and Staff
One of the best crew I have cruised with
Always plenty to do
Ship Quality
Small but easy to get around
Food and Dining
Dinning room food needs some improvement\, like the salad bar in the dinning room and the breakfast buffet in the dinning room and order off the menu\,
Cabin / Stateroom
Cabins are small but the ship is older\, ok for just a few nights
