I chose this sailing knowing Asia would be different. Royal has gone beyond that and made a ship and experience that is unfriendly to westerners. This cruise took me from platinum to emerald status, and I am disappointed it wasn't too ... Read more

We have always wanted to see parts of Asia and this cruise allowed us to travel to Beijing the day before and have a one day tour. We were not sure if we needed a visa as we were coming only one day prior. We called Royal Caribbean and ... Read more

Whilst we enjoyed the cruise - new places - new people and warm (too hot) lol weather, many aspects were disappointing. I would suggest mainly due to bad management. This was our first cruise with RCI and from what non whingers had ... Read more

We wanted to have a little taste of Asia with the view of returning there if we enjoyed it. The ship was very nice and easily navigated on board. Unfortunately there is no bar at the back but plenty of activities for family and children ... Read more

This was our first cruise, and my husband and I did it with 2 other couples. We spent 3 days in Hong Kong, before boarding the ship. It was easy to get on-board, although a little slow. We were provided with cold water whilst waiting to ... Read more

It is a large ship. The check-in took over an hour & half. Due to the fact we had not been told to bring a copy of our passports. Otherwise ok. The ship itself is quite impressive. Very clean & some great friendly staff. A few ... Read more

Demarcation at HK was a fiasco, not enough staff on arrival with no welcome, very long queues for a piece of paper that could have been sent out in advance. Virtual screen worked only 1 day out of 7, despite repeatedly reporting. ... Read more

This was a challenging cruise to review as it was actually three cruises, let me explain. First, after 14 cruises this was our first on the Quantum class, so being on such a large ship was much different experience for us. Second, this ... Read more
