RC Quantum of the Seas This ship is aimed solely at the Chinese market. There is no incentive for others to sail. There were large number of chinese personnel and although some are helpful, the level of service is noticeably poorer and disorganised. Food was of poor quality and choice, mainly chinese, all 4 complimentary restaurants served the same menu each night although the RC website states they offer different cuisine. Repetitive food including windjammer, mainly asian and if you wanted more continental choice it was dotted allover and by the time you sat down it was cold. No quality soft fruit, just melon by the bucketload, apple and pear. No premium seafood or different salads apart from lettuce and tomatoes We purchased the drink and beverage package. The choice of premium coffee shop was limited to one, we only used this three times as we had difficulty finding seats with the space taken by chinese, sleeping, sitting with no drinks or a cup of hot water. Unless you are purchasing this would not be allowed on other ships. There were no coffee machines in bars for drinking eg coffee and brandy after dinner. Wine choice was limited and poor in quality. No coffee sachets, black tea or milk in rooms. We were told there were no coffee sachets on board. No laundry for customer use but told you could have laundry done for a charge of course. Even Cunard have a customer laundry, all complimentary. Guest services massive queues and long waits, pushing in of customers Pool areas, no adult only pool, gold card holders only and cost of $50 per person per day, contrary to info Smoking allowed in areas where not normal on any other cruise line Could not and would not use jacuzzi, full of parents and children in flotation aids, this is not only not allowed on other cruise lines it is downright dangerous. Outdoor footwear allowed around pool. Docking times for itinerary poor should be full days, info for ports if you wanted to do it yourself very poor and shore excursions very expensive No guest speakers, everything on board aimed at getting money from you Entertainment, odd shows almost salacious and aimed at chinese market Although we realised this cruise was from shanghai and had spent the previous 8 days in China, we did not expect a cruise ship to be aimed purely at the Chinese. It is an international cruise line and should be aimed at a diverse audience. We were told there were 1000 of other nationalities on board so RC are ignoring the needs of approx 25% of people. We heard the same complaints off many people. This was our first cruise with RC and on this experience, will be our last. We were very disappointed. It is quite obvious that RC ignore the flouting of many things because they make so much money from the gambling and shopping habits of the Chinese. In a competitive market this is at their peril.

Everything was totally okay for me until I leave the cruise. So I need to register my credit card to make the payment during the trip more convenient. Then my credit card was charged one more time by RCL Quantum after my family finished this trip. Until now, already more than a month and I haven’t received my money back. I tried to call them but couldn’t connect. Emailed them so many times but only received the automatic emails that tell me to wait. I know that system errors may happen but can not just ignore your customer like this!!! Few more things to review about this cruise. - The foods on the cruise is not so good. If you want to eat better food, they have some restaurants there,however don’t expect too much on the food here. - Room service was nice. Staffs on the cruise are friendly and very helpful. Wish the service after trip also like that! - I tried spa there, expensive but not worth it. I tried massage for the first time and body scrub for the next time. They legit just rub my body with the salt for a minute and wrap me, chill for 1-2 minutes then the rest of 90 minutes package are only oil massage. Read Less

As others have stated in reviews of this cruise, it is not your average RCCL cruise. My husband and I were among only a handful of English speaking passengers. We had done our research and knew what to expect, but the cruise still didn't rate an excellent. We arrived in Shanghai 3 days prior to departure to help adjust time zones. The city is very nice, but very very busy. For our trip it was also very cold. It actually snowed one afternoon. We stayed on the Bund and did the hop on hop off bus to see the area. Again do your research, we spent alot of time waiting for buses because it was off season. We were very surprised at how low cost it is to visit Shanghai. Cabs and entrance fees are very reasonable. We used a cab to go to the ship and with the help of the Hotel Bellman we were taken directly to the correct port and dropped at the correct spot. As others have stated, the Chinese travel in large groups and if you pay attention, you can often bypass the long lines. It still took longer than usual to complete the boarding process. This is also were we learned that in addition to not having the same ideas of personal space the Chinese in general talk VERY LOUD! At first we thought they were upset, but we learned that this is just the way it is. To us, they sounded like they were very angry, but it did not change the entire cruise. Because we have status (Diamond Plus) on RCCL we had access to some areas of the ship that allowed us to take a break from the crowds and the noise. I am sure that we would have hated the cruise if we were not able to access the Concierge Lounge and the Very Large Solarium. These areas were only used by a hand full of Suite Guests. The ship while being large, the space is primarily for cabins and shopping. Very few areas for recreation unless you like the basketball courts. Overall we stayed clear of the common areas unless it was to go to dinner or a show. We attended 3 shows. The first was a performance of the Earth Harp that was the best show I have seen in over 33 cruises. The combination of the Harp and the drums made for a fantastic show that I wish they would bring to a ship in the states. The second show was at the 270 area they call a theater. This was just plain weird, but the Chinese appeared to like it. The theme of the show was about taking pictures which is why I think they liked it. The entire cruise the other passengers spent on their phones either watching, reading, or taking selfies. OMG Selfies in every staircase, with every picture and every view. We also noted that the other passengers do not talk at dinner. We sat next to a table of 6 of varying ages who never said a single word, but all were on their phones the entire meal. It became comical. The last show was sequins and feathers. I am sure by the faces, that many of the Chinese men had never seen so much skin in a show. Despite being asked not to take pictures everyone was recording it on video. We had a basic (cheap) inside cabin and our cabin steward was very good at taking care of anything we needed. Not sure if we will ever do another cruise out of Shanghai, but we are glad we experienced it. Read Less
