I have not sailed the Monarch, but have sailed the Sovereign this past January. This time next week, I'll be enroute to Port Canaveral to board her once again.
She is in great shape to be 16 years old and a solid workhorse for RCI. The food was great, the service was flawless, and I had a great time.
There has been some mention of a refurb being in the works in the fall, but I have seen nothing official from RCI. If this is true, it will make a great ship even better.
I wouldn't hesitate to sail her at any time!
