Dining

Chef Paco Roncero with two Michelin stars, he has designed the most delicious dishes for our restaurants.

Holidays. Those days or weeks in which the everyday stresses and hustle and bustle are replaced by a better life. In their place come comforting feelings of peace for your body and mind. Find fulfillment and positive energies as you completely enjoy the wonderful surprises that await you aboard the Monarch. For you, rest is absolute. Your only obligation is to relax. Not having to cook for yourself is part of the package. This task is assigned to Pullmantur's magnificent team overseen by chef Judge Avellan, who has left his mark on all the dishes you can try on board.

Whilst some ships have more dining options than others, you can be assured that the quality and choice of food on offer is the same across the Pullmantur fleet. On each vessel there will be the chance to dine in formal surroundings or more casually, and you can decide to eat in restaurants that stick to regimented seating times or come and go as you please in the many buffet areas. Most of their ships provide the option to eat outside if you wish; meaning you can make the most of those balmy evenings and never miss a drop of the glorious sunshine.

As well as the excellent food choice, there is also a great selection of wine to accompany your meals. This, of course, will be included in your all-inclusive package and their knowledgeable waiters can always recommend something enticing if you are unsure of what to choose.

As well as providing a la carte and buffet options at certain mealtimes, there will also be snacks and light bites available throughout the day to keep you going. Themed evenings are also a common occurrence during which certain areas of the ship are transformed to reflect a specific country of subject.

Entertaining

At Pullmantur they know that throughout all hours of the day there must be a constant balance between work rest and play. That is why, on board their cruise ship, The Monarch, they pack in as much fun as possible for all the family while remembering that sometimes, you want to get away from that too. So, as well as having the opportunity to let it all down, be entertained and have a laugh, they also allow you to take in some quiet time. The perfect balance to allow you to get the best out of your cruise.

Once night time falls, the main entertainment gets into full swing. You can venture into the Broadway Show Lounge to be mesmerised by a magician, made to chuckle by a comedian, or delighted by a range of dance and music performances. Afterwards, it’s time to head to the nightclub and get those feet moving on the dance floor.

Enrichment

Please note: the ship does not feature any dedicated Enrichment Facilities

Health and fitness

The great thing about all of Pullmantur's health and fitness facilities is that they are there if you need them but no one is going to force you into the gym or demand that you run five laps around the jogging track. However, places like the spa and the Jacuzzi are likely to require very little encouragement for you to use them anyway. These areas allow you to feel as relaxed as possible during your time with Pullmantur and really make the most of your time away.

If you’re not enjoying a warm milk bath or receiving a tranquil massage then perhaps you’ll prefer to be running around on the sports court or conquering the climbing wall that can be found on some of their ships. These activities are obviously great fun but have the added benefit of making you feel great too.

The swimming pool area is usually where most people find themselves during a sunny day at sea. Entertainment is often put on by the crew in the form of deck parties and other activities that encourage you to get involved. With plenty of sun loungers, pools that are adapted for children to use, and Jacuzzis that offer a luxurious escape; the whole family will love this lively part of the ship.
