the experience

 Laugh. Chill. Explore.
We supply everything, but you are the artist.

A rich palette of possibilities has been carefully assembled for you: fabulous shore visits, good food, dozens of on-board activities, entertainment and parties, plus always the option to sit back and do absolutely nothing. On The Cruise, we set up the canvas and hand you the brush,so you can paint the perfect holiday by following your own inspiration, each moment.Traveling Alone? you wont be for very long.

relax: water + sun

The ship has left the pier.
Leave your shore-bound life behind.

On board this floating village, two large pools, two jacuzzis and sundecks for every taste, guarantee you will get all the sun
and water you want.

Afternoons, DJs spin chilled lounge music around the pools. Relax with new and old friends, take a dip, chat, order a refreshing drink. Or slip away to one of our quiet decks, where all you hear is the sound of the breeze and the sea. If tan lines aren’t your thing, head up to our highest deck—a discrete haven for nude sunbathers.

eat well

Eat what you like, when you like.
Feel like a midnight snack,
formal dinner or healthy lunch?
The choice is yours.

 

With three restaurants on board plus room service, you will never go hungry. 

The Monarch features two à-la-carte dinner restaurants (also serving lunch on days we are at sea), a full buffet with extended opening hours,
and a 24-hour snack buffet.


daytime fun

When (and if) you’re ready
to leave your deck chair,
we’re ready for some fun.

Sporty? Head to the ocean-view gym, test your grip on the climbing wall or challenge a friend to a game of paddle tennis. Want pampering? Book a treatment at the Spa and Beauty Salon. Have you met someone you’d like to sit in the dark with? Sneak into the 24-hour cinema. Shopaholic? Eight duty free shops are calling.

In addition, we organize fun activities like the Mister The Cruise competition, the hilarious "High Heels Run", a treasure hunt, singles games and much more.

 

entertain me

Once again this year,
we add our own specialty entertainment
to the ship’s excellent offerings.

Laugh with Nickie Nicole, Maman and her girls.
Thrill at the unstoppable voice of La Diva Live. In addition, marvel at the shows offered in the Broadway Theatre by the ship’s international team of professional dancers and singers. 

Prefer to make your own fun? Test your talent in the karaoke bar or try your luck at the on-board casino.

Or enjoy the cocktails for groups (singles, nationalities, ...) in the spectacular 360° Panoramic Bar.

 

the best parties

As evening falls, the pool deck is transformed into
Europe’s hottest and friendliest floating
open-air gay party land, complete with the best sounds,
lights and a happy, high-energy crowd.

Check out the party themes and start planning your costumes! 

Sunset Tea Dance

 While costumes are not mandatory,
it is much more fun to have a little something
in your suitcase, so you can join in.

the single experience

Every year, we welcome hundreds of singles on board.
Join us!

Some just love to do their own thing. For the others, we offer several opportunities to make new friends or strike up a romance. From singles dinner tables to mix-and-mingle cocktail hours, we help you connect. The ship itself does the rest of the work—the warm, friendly village atmosphere means you won’t find yourself alone unless you choose to create some “me” time.

Most of our single friends share a cabin with someone they didn’t know before. And while many say they were nervous about this at the start, by the end they rush to tell us what a wonderful time they had with their roommate. If you join our "single share program", you will share the cabin with someone of your age.
