Default Monarch of the Seas

We are sailing on 11/8-4 day cruise and would be interested in hearing from anyone on that sailing. Also, if anyone has sailed on her recently, we would love to hear from you. Thanks.

We sailed on Monarch in late 1999 and absolutely loved her. Lots of brass, always clean and shiny, rooms were compact but cozy and very functional with lots of storage space. Bathroom is very small but also functional. Staff were amazing, especially our cabin steward Sergio. We found it a very colourful but classy ship, even though she's a bit older than most of RCI's fleet. The Sound of Music Lounge, where they put on the major shows, is great with comfy chairs and couches with tables for your drinks. Shows were great, don't miss the "Not so Newlywed" game, it's a hoot (my husband and I were contestants). The Atrium is stunning with nice shops. Dining room was attractive, downside was fairly low ceilings. Pool area was very nice and Viking Crown Lounge is a full 360 degrees of windows on this ship and it overlooks the pool deck. She's a very pretty ship from the outside too, they are always painting her to keep her nice and white. There is a lounge on the same floor as the casino (I forget the name but it has a nautical theme). It's decor is great and I would have liked to spend some time there but it was a haven for smokers, so if you don't like cigarette smoke, skip it and cut through the casino on the way to the Show Lounge instead. Food was always good, except for the first night. Art auction was interesting (with free champagne). Pool band was fantastic, I'm still kicking myself for not buying their CD. Hope this info helps. Enjoy Monarch and give her my love. Bon Voyage

Linda and I are taking this cruise to celebrate Linda's 60th birthday. We are both retired and neither of us have taken a cruise before. We arranged our travel on our own and hope we are pretty well organized. My only question is what happens when we get to Port Everglades. My understanding is that there is vehicle parking available. We plan to get there early, so we should be able to find our way around.
