stink on board

Sail Date: February 18, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

this ship smelled like an un maintained nursing home. the stink was nauseating. the food quality was poor at the seated dining. there were 8 of us at our table and we just finally gave up on having a nice dinner. i mentioned it to a lady onboard who was taking quality surverys and she told me it was most likely because the ship has been sold and the care just isn't there anymore. the monarch staff was all about getting your last penny. very disappointing cruise all in all.
