Sail Date: February 01, 2013
Ship: Monarch of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

Good thing that the Monarch of the Seas is retiring because this ship is old, outdated with worn carpeting, broken lounge chairs, constant smell of sewer on deck 3 near the cabins and the food was not that good at all. I wish that I would have known that this was an old boat and retiring, because I would not have gone on it. Lesson learned!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Not enough seafood on the menu, never any shredded cheese for salads, steaks were tough and lemonade was watered down. Convenient dining times was the only good thing.


3 out of 5
Variety of things to do on the boat!!

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Our attendant was very nice and friendly, the Cruise Director was awesome and the Vincent Dining hall staff were friendly but other that everyone was o.k.--didn't really go out of their way to be nice.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Outdated and odors on Deck 3 constant

Cabin / Stateroom

Too small, bed uncomfortable, the shower too small and as soon as you walk out of the cabin there was a smell of sewer constantly.

Pros: Cabin attendant service and variety of activities

Cons: Old and outdated boat and mediocre food.

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
