The ship is really old and leaving the fleet in two weeks. It shows it's age and it is nothing pretty or beautiful about it at all. No grandness anywhere. The food in the dinning room was just okay and the buffet was even worse. Prepared eggs and pancakes...nothing made fresh for you. The mini suites were nothing short of a standard balcony on Norweign ships. There were very limited hand sanatizers around the ship\, and at that\, most were empty. Met a couple ladies and will keep in touch\, the shows were okay\, and the hip will be out of commission long after it should have been.

Food and Dining

warmed over food unless you order in the dinning room and then it is still not much better. I think they had all the steaks pre-cooked.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
VERY small bathroom and no private toilet area as other ships have. Okay size for a standard room but NOT what they called and charged as a mini suite.

Pros: The cruise director was great!

Cons: Food was just sub-par

Recommends Monarch of the Seas? No.
