NOT THE ZENITH SHIP. MONARCH Ship was our cruise. All Spanish speaking, some English. Overall a fair cruise. Do not take interior room as walls are thin. Fruit was not ripe, hard and lacked flavor. Coke and other soft drinks plus most alcohol free in open main pool/deck area. Poor looking few channels on 17-20" TV. Few activities, guess we are spoiled. Yellowish brown nasty looking hot water for 3 days, took cold shower. It is an adventure.

All Spanish speaking cruise, some English. Overall a fair cruise, fun for first timers but experienced cruisers will not be happy unless you are old hippies. Do not take interior room as walls are thin and some people will party all night into the wee hours of the morning... plus staff do not like complaints, so it is best to hold complaints until you can make them online. The Filipino staff were great, but some of the Spanish complained about being underpaid.

Cabin Review

Cabin standard inside

Small cramped bed against the wall, mattress was lumpy and seemed to be worn out.

Food at the restaurant was better than the buffet on deck 11.
