Too many things to like rather than "hate."

Sail Date: Apr 2015
Cabin: Super Studio Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Arrived at the terminal at 9:42, an hour before my scheduled time. Bags were checked in less than 5 minutes, RFID tags attached. After two prior attempts to visit the Tear Drop Memorial, I was finally able to walk over there (prior construction of terminal stopped me in the past) and reflect. The drive in and Check in was painless, about 5 minutes. Then off to my 'waiting area' where people are cordoned off by their scheduled check-in times. On the ship at 10:49 a.m. Four minutes after schedule.

The Royal IQ app was downloaded on my Android phone the day it became available. It had two updates since, which were done while I was still on land. This app worked exactly as promised the entire cruise. One bag was already at my cabin door at 1 p.m. and it was wonderful to see the second bag travelling on its scheduled path and arriving at my cabin an hour later, through Royal IQ. No more checking periodically by foot to see if it showed up. Brilliant! My recommendations for IQ...add deck plans and the Cruise Compass. My cabin TV quit processing my daily account (yes, I could have requested a fix) but I had instant access to it through my phone so I didn't bother. I was able to book excursions and other reservations without any problems on my phone.

The Diamond Lounge was nice, but I got rather tired of listening to others complain how the Quantum isn't like other ships. Frankly, I prefer to surround myself with positive thinking, especially while on vacation. The DL served a good selection of items at breakfast and dinner time. Enough to keep you going on the run.
