Whether your idea of “entertainment” is a gentle string quartet or a full-blown, Las Vegas-style production, the Monarch of the Seas probably fits your definition. Here’s the rundown on the lineup they’ve got onboard:

The multi-tiered Sound of Music Lounge is the major venue for the Monarch’s big, splashy, shipboard productions. The sight lines are generally good with a huge – some might say confusing – variety of ramps, levels, angles, and seating arrangements (theater rows, clustered banquet, etc.) from which to watch the show. The lounge is quite deep, however; people seated at the rear are well back from the action on stage.

By most early accounts, the hopping, E-ticket place aboard the Monarch is destined to become Bolero’s. Located on Deck 7 midship, it’s one of those shipboard venues you seem to bump into no matter where you’re heading – which is a good thing; Bolero’s offers a terrific bar (the Mojito’s here are excellent); spacious, two-tiered seating, a stylish, contemporary décor; great views out to sea; and the nicest dance floor aboard.

Besides their logo, the oldest hallmark of Royal Caribbean is their Viking Crown Lounge. The Monarch, being one of the older ships in their fleet, has what loyal Royal Caribbean passengers refer to as the “classic, no-nonsense, what a Viking Crown Lounge should be” layout for this top-of-the-ship venue. It’s small, but the beauty of the room is that you can walk full-circle around it. The 360-degree views are absolutely unparalleled.

The Schooner Bar is another hallmark of Royal Caribbean. On the Monarch, the lounge is relatively small and narrow, but that only adds to the cozy camaraderie of the lounge. The nautically-themed bar’s proximity to the Centrum, the casino and the Sound of Music Lounge places it at the heart of evening entertainment, too. Located above Claude’s, one of the two main dining rooms, makes it a great stopover for pre-dinner cocktails, too.

A night on the town aboard the Monarch of the Seas will most likely include a stop at Casino Royale. It’s all here: electronic slot machines (Wheel of Fortune!), blackjack, video poker, craps, roulette, and Caribbean stud poker! The night will also probably bring you to The Circuit, the Monarch’s disco. Formerly a dance lounge, the space lacks the close, in-your-face energy of legitimate disco, but the dance floor is spacious and the Royal Caribbean crowds are fun-loving!

For the al fresco crowd, nothing beats the Pool Bar! There’s always good conversation to be found poolside. Raise your beer and toast the Viking Crown Lounge across the deck!
