Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Ive cruised about 16 times with Royal Caribbean and I must say this was not the best experience I've had on a cruise. Their was not enough quality or variety of entertainment. There seems to be the same old same old type of entertaiment for years. The Newlywed Game, Belly Flop, 70's and 80's party.just to name a few. After 2 or 3 cruises this can be boring. I think there needs to be more updated music in the clubs. The DJ asked for request but did not have any of the music we requested. Also the toilets stopped flushing daily which created a serious health hazard. There are several things are outdated in the staterooms such as the 12in. televisions, the electrical plugs will not hold the cords. Shower floors were dirty, (needed scrubbing). I did not enjoy the atmosphere of this cruise. The staff was curtious but overall I've had Better Times on other ships and cruises....
