This was a nice cruise and we had a great time. We have only taken two cruises previously with Carnival. In comparison our Carnival cruises were much nicer, the ships were newer and more updated, there seemed to be more fun things to do. Our room on the Monarch of the Seas was more spacious though, and the last show we saw was fantastic. A girl singing Whitney Houston songs sent chills up my arms, never thought anyone could match that voice. I understand the ship is to be retired in April, probably a good thing to happen for Royal Carribean. We plan to go on many cruises in the future so I am sure we will sail with RC again.

Be careful when they come around with drinks at dinner time they come with a bill later.
