Default monarch of the seas

Does the Monarch of the Seas have in-line skating & a rock climbing wall, or are those activities only on the newer ships? What other kinds of fun things do they offer that may not be listed on their web site? What about kids? We have a 7 year old daughter...is there much for kids to do on the Monarch...the pictures I saw of the kids' area weren't very impressive...but if they have a fun program, the facilities may not be that important...

No, you will find those kind of activities only on the newer ships.

We went on Monarch a few years ago and loved it. Yes it is a smaller and older ship than some of the new ones like Voyager but she is still beautiful and plenty big. It will always hold a warm place in our hearts. We really liked the pool area and theatre on this ship. No, it doesn't have the rock climbing or inline skating like the Voyager but there are still lots of fun things to do. As far as the kids program, we did not have our child with us on that cruise but some people we made friends with had their 7 & 9 year old daughters with them and they were having a blast and able to be on their own a lot without their parents worrying about them.

Happy cruising...you will surely get hooked as we did!
