Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Long before I boarded the Quantum on 1 March, I had heard so many negative comments about the Quantum. Now that my 12 days aboard her have ended, I'm wondering where all the negativity came from. The ship and her crew were awesome...the food better that most other RCI ships that I have sailed, and the shows top-notch.

Let's start with check-in. The new terminal is much nicer than the old, however, there is still room for improvement. Once inside, there is very little direction as to where to go and what what to do...and it isn't that intuitive. I still say that the Baltimore terminal is the best yet when it come to customer service.

You no longer wait in line to go to a counter...and there are no express check-in for Diamond and above. Everyone is expected to sit in a chair assigned to your assigned arrival time. Mobile representatives come to you, ask a few questions, take your picture, then stamp your boarding pass. You can then proceed to the ship. Although cumbersome, it only took us approximately 20 minutes from arrival at the terminal to boarding the ship.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin E1

OMG!!! LOVED our stateroom! We had a balcony room with a total of 232 sq ft. with MANY of what I call "thoughtful" changes. PLENTY of storage and the bed is high enough to stow suitcases easily.Rather than one closet with doors that like to open/close on their own during the night and shoes sliding out from underneath, there are two closets on either side of the bed...both with a floor and doors that stay put! One closet has two hanging rods (upper/lower), plenty of hangers and two racks on the door for shoes, purses, whatever. The other closet has one shorter hanging rod on one side, shelves and a safe on the other.There are four upper "flippers" with plenty of space for storage, then another four drawers that are 'self-closing,' and they stay closed!We had a fridge equipped with a combo lock. I was first puzzled by this but I suppose if there is alcohol or goodies that you don't want the kiddies to get into, the lock is a good thing.We opened the bathroom door to the greatest change/upgrade we could have asked for...NO SHOWER CURTAIN! The shower is a roomy arched plexiglass shower with a door that opens/closes easily and stays put! No need to pack clothes pins for the Quantum. Even better, the bathroom mirror DOES NOT fog up (and I take HOT showers). HOPEFULLY, RCI will make this a fleet-wide change.
