I was amazed at how wonderful the food was on Monarch in November, during a 4-night cruise. We had been on the same ship about four years ago, where the food was not very good. We've been on Celebrity twice (Summit and Mercury). The food was great both times; but, we thought that Monarch's food was just about as good. Most recently, we were on Golden Princess, where the food was good, but not as nice as Monarch or Celebrity. Norwegian Star is at the bottom of our experience, so far.
