Is the Quantum the Ship of Dreams??

This, at first, is going to sound like a negative review, but make no mistake, in spite of the numerous glitches, the Quantum of the Seas is an amazing ship and the much-hyped “WOW” is an understatement. My wife and I are experienced cruisers, (this is cruise number 30) in our late 50’s who have been looking forward to this cruise for a year. I have followed its construction and we could hardly ...

This was our first cruise and we had watched the ship being built. We had heard all the promises, but were sceptical it would all be ready as it was only delivered to RCCI 6 days before. So here goes. Embarkation in Southampton was slower than promised, but we were still on board in 45 minutes which to us was still in in good. We were guided well at the port rather than queuing there were lots of ...

Check-in was a free for all at southampton with staff with i-pads being surrounded by people trying to get aboard. but we got aboard within 30mins with no problems. The positives were- all the staff who were very helpful and worked very hard. The cabins were big and clean and our balcony was big enough. The facilities were very good The gym was wll equipped, This is our 6th cruise, The ...

This was a Maiden Voyage. So we went with an attitude of "This is an Adventure" and I am privileged to help a new ship come to life. Remarkably RCCi invited (yes we paid but we were invited) to go on a first cruise which was Transatlantic. In the past they have brought their new ships to American with special guests and crew only. Plus add on the fact they are introducing a entirely new way of ...

From WOW - The build-up - to UGH - The reality, starting off with the problems of online booking for dining etc and the horrific check-in at Southampton - to WOW - Entertainment incl Mama Mia, the iFly and North Star - to UGH - the problems inc lack of response from the Guest Relations (the door between the balconies - the door was repaired (so it could be locked and stop slamming all the time) - ...

Failure to WOW

Even the future cruise discount and $300 onboard credit can't make up for the many failures of the maiden voyage. It took over an hour of standing to get checked in and same to get off. The highly anticipated and much publicized high tech capabilities was a low tech bust. The Robotic Bar seldom worked, the Internet was slow if you could get on it, the cabin thermostat was frozen, the bumper cars ...

We are in our early 60s, Diamond members, and usually take three to four cruises per year on Celebrity or RCL. Our trip began with two nights in London where we walked and walked and walked since the weather was perfect and we hoped to see as much as possible on foot. After taking the early buss to Southampton, we eagerly and patiently awaiting our turn to get onboard this magnificent new ship ...

QUANTUM is EPIC FAILURE—2½ STARS!!! This is my 5th transatlantic cruise, out of 15 cruises and my second maiden transatlantic, from this route. This ship has many similarities with my maiden voyage with the NCL Epic (2-Star vessel/voyage). In short this ship is much more an NCL vessel than a ship within the RCCL fleet. This ship is a complete disgrace and not representative in any way, shape, or ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We expected some teething problems on a maiden voyage using new technology and were not disappointed. However the Operations VP Laura Posta was on board and played a true starring role. She fronted up and awarded every stateroom 300 dollars on the second day.......no reluctance just decisive leadership which was well appreciated by all the guests. We had arrived at noon on Sunday to embark to ...

There were glitches getting on the ship but it was to be expected since we were the first revenue passengers. Once on the ship it was amazing. Very elegantly beautifully designed with a lot of smart technology. Some of it was still in trail mode but it will be amazing when all the bugs are worked out. Royal did however reward us well for the little glitches, $300.00 OBC and 25% of our fare in a ...
